By the way, if any of you Boston-based R2 AdMITs would like to meet some future classmates, I am meeting a few other future Sloanies tonight and tomorrow. Shoot me a PM if you're in town and interested!


Hey kingfalcon,

Turns out you're right; got my call at 211p today.

General question (for anyone), I'm unable to make it to admit weekend. Is that bad form? or just to woo students, etc????

Honestly, if you're set on attending Sloan, AdMIT Weekend is mostly just to help you get to know some of your fellow classmates before you matriculate. If you can't make it, I wouldn't sweat it (although it was a lot of fun!).

Haha ding - expected as I totally went complacent on the interview - so those applying next year don't flub it!

Good advice! Fortunately, you have two great options available to you. Booth or GSB? Or is that a silly question? :)

Now you just need to change that (I) to an (A) and then that (A) to an (M)!


Lol there you go - one step at a time! :)

And so - after a month and a half of deliberation - I've decided to let go of my Sloan waitlist position, and accept a place a Tuck! I know this may have seemed a no-brainer to a lot of you, but I assure you it was not a quick'n'easy decision to make. I love both schools to bits, but as an international, there were eventually just more cons than pros in waiting to be accepted at Sloan.

I cannot begin to describe how uplifting the decision is, and how much clarity it has given me. There's much to still be done, but I'm ready for it - Fall couldn't arrive sooner!

It has been a pleasure hosting this thread over the past year, and I look forward to continue contributing in any way possible to this forum.
A small note to those who didn't make it this year - never lose hope. Sometimes its only a small facet of your overall profile that needs a little chiseling - get it done, and you will be through! Who knows - I may even see a bunch of you next year at Tuck!!

Cheers,
MBAWanderlust

PS - Seeing the 'M' against Tuck on my profile, and smiling to myself.

Thanks for setting this up.

Does anyone know how stringent adcoms are to the three year limit for the two essay questions? Would four years back be pushing it?

One of my essays went back 3.5 years from when I submitted. Still got in. I think it depends on how relevant and/or impressive your experience was.

About the choice of recommenders, I was wondering if I can have a supervisor and a peer review from my current organization. As they will be best able to comment on my working style and about the 'latest' me. Or should I go safely with a supervisor from a previous organization.

Can't go wrong with Sloan as far as entrepreneurship is concerned. All the best to this year's applicants.

Cheers,

Hey Everyone,

Great to see people already congregating here!

Does anyone know whether Sloan has a Sloan-on-the-Road event for applicants from India? I've been checking back regularly, and don't see an event anywhere close to India :(...

hey chintamani,

Given the specific wording on the MIT Sloan website, getting a recommendation form a peer does not seem to be a problem. They ask for recos from "individuals who are able to speak with certainty about your professional achievements and potential", and, unlike other schools, are not particular about recos only from superiors.
However, given that the entire process is highly subjective, I'd recommend that you give the Sloan Admissions Office a quick call/email, and find out whether a peer recommendation will be okay with them - ultimately, what they tell you is what matters :). Do keep us posted on what they say.

Cheers,
WanderLust

Good luck 2013 candidates! Be sure to check our last year's thread for essay strategies, campus visit debriefs, interview debriefs, and more.

I highly recommend visiting for the Ambassador's program (official campus visit) once classes start in Sept. Great way to demonstrate interest and get insights from the adcom and current students. The group session with an admissions person was very useful for answering questions and getting tidbits such as acceptance stats and tips. I attended an MBA fair where MIT participated but really didn't find it all that useful. You basically get a 3 minute conversation with the rep at the booth before people behind you start getting antsy...
