After looking at last year's forums, if you're a West Coast applicant, don't expect to get an invite until the end of December.

They do it regionally, and we're much later down the road.

compared to 12 interview invites this year, at the same time there were only 4 invites reported last year..... compared to last year, this is certainly not a trickle...

Are Sloan's interview invites really geographically based? Seems pretty random to me so far..

Vinash - you mean you were invited to interview in Delhi next week? What date? Congrats and all the best! I heard on another forum that you can see the number of slots online - how many are available in Delhi and how many already filled?

Thanks MALD2011! Hope they've not started or done with NC area yet...

I attended the online chat yesterday. They're still reviewing some applications, will continue to review and send out invites until d day. In the meantime, rejection letters may go out any day.

Congrats to those who got the invites!

My supplement video hasn't been viewed by the adcom yet, according to youtube stats. My app status still indicates "Submitted" - "application is complete and being evaluated".

Can anybody share their video view stats and app status?


Hi RP,

Youtube stats are not an accurate indicator. In order to register a view , viewer has to finish watching the entire video, so if someone from he admission committee watches your video and stops it as only two seconds left, youtube will not register it as a view. I hope that helped.

I received my invite last year on Dec. 16 and interviewed mid January. I'll be happy to answer any questions.



Could you please share your interview experience? Was it mostly behavioral questions or "why MBA/ why Sloan?" questions?
Any tricky questions?

Thank you


You can find online some of the questions that Sloan asks just by doing an easy search. Most of the questions are behavioral and I would recommend you glance over them. Just read the questions and think of some stories in your life that would relate but DO NOT prepare answers (That would make your answers seem unnatural and rehearsed). What I found during the interview was that when I was asked one question, the story I picked and formulated ended up answering 3 at once (I guess because I had that list of questions in mind).

For example with a question such as: "Tell me a time when you asked for help" you can talk about a project that you took up but had difficulties completing the task on time and therefore had to ask someone for their help. But you can also answer questions such as "what's your greatest weakness" "something you have done that you are proud of" "how would your coworkers describe you" just by the way you frame your answer.

I am not saying that is the way you should go about your interview but I found that it helped me feel like I have used the interview time effectively to paint as big of a picture of myself as possible.

Just remember, if you got an interview YOU ARE QUALIFIED. What the interview does is see if you can communicate and if you FIT THE CULTURE. So the best way to prepare is come to campus and meet some of the students.

Thanks IcanIwill. I am just putt-sing around. Of course I am eagerly waiting for that interview invite. Sometimes all the hyper competitiveness gets me. Right after I wrote that, I walked by an ugly poster in my office saying "Attitudes are contagious" and then I raelize that I shouldn't be spreading this down attitude.
