I have it on my calendar that interview notifications "begin today" . . . I haven't heard anything else from anybody.

Ahhhh ok...yeah it sounds like they're getting started with invites a bit later than a lot of people expected. I had been hoping that some good news might come in this week to help me cope with the wait for Booth's notice on the 13th. Looking at your schools I would imagine you're in the same position.

Which calendar are you referring to? Traditionally, Sloan always sends dings after the invites.

I've heard one on-campus interview invitation from Sloan for a Chinese applicant. That's the only one I found in online forums, but not sure if it's for regular MBA.

MIT will be closed tomorrow due to the coming snow storm. Doubt you guys will hear anything until next week at the earliest. Good luck :)

Nothing for me. There has been one person identified in the stats page here as "interviewed" for some time and two people tagged that way over at BTG. None of those have commented on their invites or timing though so I'm not sure if it's just an error in the way they put in their stats. In any case until we see several people notifying of invites here I think it's safe to say that they haven't started a big push of R2 invites.

So my app still says submitted and being evaluated or something like that since pretty much 5 Jan. (I submitted a few hours before deadline on 27 Dec...who am I kidding thanks to my recommenders i submitted 7 minutes before deadline). I assumed I was dinged as that is what happened to my buddy who applied to Stanford and didnt get an interview and he said it just stayed that way all the way until the acceptance day he got a ding letter.

Can anyone else say what their app says? Can we confirm all apps say something about submitted and being evaluated?

thanks

I'm R2 and mine says the same. Don't worry, doesn't look like any invites have gone out yet.

I fall for that every single time, from every one of my schools. You'd think I would learn by now haha.

Haha, yeah it's the worst. Actually no... THE WORST is the ambiguous "Regarding your application" subject line.

...open it up and it just says "We have received your application and are currently processing..."

Mine says the same also and it feels good not to be the only one waiting.

I have submitted an application video (open to public on Youtube) for my MIT application. Let's see if my hours/days/nights of work will pay off.

Good luck to you all

I have checked the analytics but the video is made public, it is difficult to track it down. (I should have unlisted it).

Also, there are no views listed in the states of Massachusetts... :? That's not a very good sign.

I am in the same boat. My video is unlisted and nobody from US has watched it yet. But at least this time I'll know if somebody read my app.

Well, for those who posted videos on Youtube - the analytics engine logs a view only when the entire video is viewed (till the end). In case someone viewed your video till the last second, and stopped, Youtube won't record that as a statistic. So it could be that your video was viewed till the very last second, but closed before the view could be logged.

I believe that the AdCom would look at the supplemental essays of all applicants, even if they dont really score it. It would be unfair to view the supplemental essays of only a few candidates - given MIT Sloan's focus on innovation and creativity, the supplemental essay should be the first component of an application that they view, given that its a blank canvas on which a candidate's creativity can be visibly captured.

For the record, my supplemental essay was viewed four times in Jan (between Jan 25 and Jan 29, to be precise), all from the US. I know because the website I uploaded my PDF to is relatively obscure, but has cool analytics (tells me which country the view came from, at what time, and for how long the view lasted). Since it was a private link I generated just for Sloan, I figure nobody else could have stumbled upon it.

I guess the interview invites will begin to go out within a couple of weeks, maybe even this week. With Sloan, you can never tell. But then, that's the beauty of a surprise isn't it?

Cheers,

Same for me. I am sure that MIT looks at all sup. essays. The video that I uploaded was also viewed a few times around the timeline that MBAWanderlust mentioned (last viewed on Jan 27th). One of the reasons that my nerves start acting up everytime I get an email from MIT for a convention :-D

Guys, the message on the mit website doesn't change until you are admitted or dinged.
