San Francisco invites have been reported as of today. This would also apply to the AZ/ West Coast peops in the US I assume.

I am pretty sure Sloan adcom has not viewed my supplemental video. Is it a possibility that if they don't like an application they just skip the video.? That would be pretty sad as I spent couple of weeks working on it. Did anybody who has received interview invitation from MIT confirm they received it even without their videos being viewed by adcom? Thanks.

The view count on youtube is truly misleading, if they stopped the video before the end it doesnt count up. They may have viewed it but stopped it right before. I would'nt go off from this data point to conclude wether my app has been reviewed. I did not submit a video though but there have been some people who reported 0 views on their video and got an invite, so dont stress out about the view count.

I didn't submit the supplemental essay since it was optional. I didn't think that it was a big issue, but now I am worried. Any thoughts?

I can tell you that two separate members of the adcom (on two separate occasions) STRONGLY suggested everyone submit something. That said, if your application is already submitted, there is not much you can do now, right? Might as well let go and focus on the things you can control.

People who submitted the supplement will get in, and people who didn't submit the supplement will get in. It's an optional piece, so Sloan isn't going to exclude you because you didn't submit anything. Kingfalcon is right though, the adcom sure seems to like it.

If you did a really good job of showing the adcom who you are in the rest of the app, then not using the optional space isn't a big deal -- you would have been being redundant anyway. If you had some passion or skill or background or anything that you didn't get to talk about in the app and that would show them another side of you, then bummer -- you just missed a chance to show that. It doesn't mean you won't be admitted anyway.

The Sloan app is pretty no-nonsense, so a lot of people realized they could show a little something extra in the supplement. Don't fret about it too much though -- remember that MIT uses a quantitative grading system for reading applications, and it's not even really clear how the supplement can affect that grading system anyway.

Hi Guys, I am based in HK and have applied to Sloan in Round 1. My profile is GMAT 780/M/Indian/30 Years old/ Working in I bank in HK.
Somehow I didn't ignored the optional essay compeltely and didn't submit any video. Now I see that everyone else has submitted this video.
Do you think this ends any chance of getting an interview call from Sloan? Also how did everyone end up submitting this video as it was optional? I used clearadmit and they didn't stress the fact that this video is a must. Any commments would be helpful.

By the way, haven't received an invite yet and am based in Hong Kong. So my hopes of getting an invite are very slim now. Didn't get interview invite from Wharton either. Has anyone received interview invite from South East Asia. What are the interview dates for HK/Singapore/Tokyo etc?


Same...still waiting in China.....good luck to us!
Let us know if any of you heard of any invite for applicants in East Asia!


I'm in a same boat in Japan....good luck to us too!

Guys, have quite a few friends who are currently first and second year students at MIT Sloan... the feedback they have considering all other students/applicants of their time FROM THEIR REGION, and after some friendly discussions with adcoms is:

1. For applicants from lesser represented countries (Brazil, Hong Kong etc), invites typically go out in first week of January. So have a great Christmas!
2. For applicants from higher represented countries (US, India), invites should have gone out already, and will go out for the rest of this week. Less than 5% will be invited in the first week of January. After this, if any invites go they are mostly waitlist type.

The above refers to average applicants like me, not the super stars (built and sold facebook, or scaled seven highest peaks kind)...

So guys who like things black and white, and from the US like me, good luck for the next two days. If you dont get an invite just like me, suck it up, and play life well. We will rock the universe in a different way, and show these metrosexual idiots in AdComs how to live a real life...

And for God's sake, please stop asking questions on "Should I have submitted video". Reason: When submitting the application, you either A. considered all options and took a wise decision to submit or not submit video. Then be a man, and stick by your decision. OR B. You couldnt decide properly, and didnt submit. In such a case, better start questioning your decision making ability, realize what is wrong, and take a better decision next time.

Thanks buddy. Yeah, I saw that interview invite. But that's the only one in LA area. Looks like other invited candidates are not reporting.

Thanks for the heads-up! The way I look at it, if I don't hear back by the end of the week, I'll get to enjoy the holidays and new year too not having to fret about it. Or as much as I can while slaving away with some other applications.

That's right! Lastest email from the admission committee when I asked my application status: "We are still in the process of reviewing applications and sending out interview invitations. Interview invitations can go out right up until the decision notification date, so not to worry!"
No matter what, let's be confident about our own application and enjoy the holiday!

Thanks the update, FrozenTongue. Having not received an invite yet, my hopes for MIT have dwindled considerably. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

Just got off one of those MIT Adcom chats. They said Latin America and Asia interviews for R1 were going to occur in the region, the first two weeks of January. They didn't mention where, it sounds like they're still planning their city tour out.

US interviews are being held in SF/LA and Cambridge, with plans to go to SF/LA (again) in January. Cambridge invites for the rest of the country will just be rolling.

They also said that the timing of invitation has nothing to do with the strength of the candidate or the likelihood of admittance.

Getting off that chat made me feel a lot better about everything. Answers might have been political and there might be some secret, behind the scenes recipe they're cooking, but I'm going to stop stressing and try to sit tight.

They also said that they'll try to update all the applications before Jan 29. So if you got rejected at least you won't have to wait till the day of to be told.

I had to requote this post for awesomeness, specifically in regards to the metrosexual AdComs. I myself am surprised from the lack of interview invitations from a couple of schools I've applied to. I know it's because none of them have any idea what my company is, not because it's not a global company, but because they have probably never seen applicants from my company. 98% of people I work with already have their master's degrees.

AdCom really doesn't seem to have a clue about much of anything. I promise I'm not bitter :-D
