I am an international currently based in midwest (WI). I haven't received an invite yet but my supplemental video hasn't been viewed yet. May be it has been but YouTube failed to record it since it requires the full viewing. In any case my chances are little slim based on my GPA, nationality, GMAT, and work experience. We will see though.

BrownBunny, good luck with your interview and best wishes for the admission process.



So acturally my concern is that my current application status is "Complete and being evaluated", but I my supplemental video has not been viewed yet. Does that mean my application has been reviewed, but not been reviewed completely? If that is the case, doesn't it lower my chance to receive an interview? Or my application hasn't been reviewed at all and will be thoroughly reviewed in the near future?


In the same boat. I will be really bummed if they reject/WL my application w/o viewing my video. I guess that would mean the rest of my application was terrible - a possibility I find painful to imagine...

(I know my video ends a little abruptly so I don't think the adcom member could dismiss the video a few seconds prior to its end and Youtube failing to count that as a view.)

Still nothing for anyone in East Asia, specifically China? I've done a lot of looking on this forum and others and don't see any invites. But that's not necessarily indicative, per se. Any thoughts?

Hi, Any Africa-based applicants received invites yet?

I'm based in Zambia and have yet to receive an invite. I'm assuming ours will come out last as Africa interviews are phone/Skype-based and don't require logistical planning on the part of the adcoms. Also, save the best for last :)

Could someone please tell me the formatting for the Cover letter and the essays?

I took a one year break from studies after Class 12 and before joining college? Do I need to make a mention of that? Does it need to be in the cover letter?

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?

I submitted a written optional essay and got an interview. Other members of this board didnt bother to supply any optional essay and got interviews. If you can express yourself well in the required essays, there is really little value. I used my optional essay to drop in a couple extra facts about me and submit my short/long term career goals which are unique to me. I know MIT doesnt care what the hell I want to do in the future, but if i am paying $250 to apply than they are going to read about what I want them to know.

San Francisco invites have been reported as of today. This would also apply to the AZ/ West Coast peops in the US I assume. Hopefully there are still some more days left to receive a SF invite given that it seems they are trickling out uniformly over a span of 3 to 4 days per region, and not on a single wave. good luck to everyone, keep us posted please.

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.

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.
