I have been researching past interview questions on the internet, and one thing Ive come across is candidates keep referencing handing over their transcripts.

And I was only to upload an unofficial version, and I think my university requires that they send it directly to the office who requests it, so I cant bring an official version myself.

Anyone know if the transcipts are a thing of the past and just werent in the application submission. Or should I be worried I need to get my undergrad to get something official to MIT by next week?


From what I read and understood about this process for MIT, we need to bring in official transcripts at the time of the interview. (Official transcripts - These transcripts are the ones that we get from your school/university in a signed,stamped and sealed envelope.)

You may want to get those ready for the interview. You can call adcom office to know the official word on it. Let us know if it is different from what I understood.


I knew before I posted the question that the correct answer is always to call and ask adcom. So I took your advice after I tried being lazy and posting the question here.

I called and asked the adcom, they said no official copies of the transcript are required this time, just a photo id. Thats a relief. Anyone else's undergrad refuse to give graduates transcripts and instead insist on mailing them directly to the school?

My school in India refuses to give transcript at all unless I am present there. :shock:

That's great to hear. Indeed a relief.

Good luck for your interview.

I'm in Boston now; very different from Madison - so expensive! Two hours NW of Madison... hmm... I'll guess in Lacrosse? ;)

Still haven't heard anything back, like several folks here.

Right guess, you still follow the right hand map of Wisconsin well :wink:
Hang in there friend, it will come through.

Everytime I start to have doubts, I go over my Slaon's application. I did my best on that application and it is pretty much out of my hands now.

I learned to avoid going over my application again as a method to fight my anxiety during this wait game. I think that sometimes, you read blogs or comments from other people and start polluting your own opinions with this external information and end up trying to project these external thoughts onto your own application. Suddenly you start thinking that what you wrote at that point in time is not good because you are now armed with all these opinions from every blog out there and this just becomes a slippery slope that can culminate in suicidal behaviour or autoerotique asfixiation.

Either way, its not good for the soul. I know I did my best, but I refuse to double-click on that damned folder icon until I am preparing for a Sloan interview or if I need to recycle my essays for other applications.

Enjoy the weekend, hopefully next week will bring good news to all of us in the West US region or Latin America applicants.

I could not agree more. Until you get your interview invitation, rereading your application serves no purpose other than to stress you out. It's time to take a deep breath and let it go, for better or worse! :-D

I read the whole comment... but my mind fixated on two words: "autoerotique asfixiation" ... what exactly is that?? Are you trying one of those bondage tricks which tie up the neck to asphyxiate, while increasing the erotic orgasm sensitivities?? All this just to relieve MIT anxiety?? Why!?!?!? Why on earth why?? I think in the last years thread someone was mas@@rbating off to Rod Garcia's video.... WHY??

Disclaimer: anxiety relief only. no offences to be taken.

Apologize if this is already clear to others, but I wanted to understand the interview style adcom/counselors conduct.

The Sloan interview preparation guide asks interviewees to be prepared to talk about past experiences influencing others, building professional relationships, and exhibiting drive. Given that the guide only mentions to focus on our prior experiences, are we not expected to answer questions like "why MIT?" or "why an MBA" during this interview? I guess I want to know if this interview is strictly related to my professional background and detailed stories of leadership, team work, mentorship, etc. or should I expect general questions on what I want to do at MIT and why I am drawn to the school?

Any insight will help. Thanks guys!

Not yet. I believe there are few other people from Canada too who haven't received an invite.

Did anyone else not submit a video? I did not as I thought my video could hurt my application more than it could help me. I have not received an invite though, so am unsure whether or not the optional essay/video is one reason. Guess we will wait and see. Good luck everyone!
