I was still up the last night when the invite came through. While I was contemplating on slots as they clashed with my blow-off-the-steam vacation, the slots were full.
Amidst the Stanford-approaching selectivity, Sloan appears to be generous toward Asian applicants. :wink:

That does seem to be the case, but we can never be sure. There could have been (probably were) a larger contingent of Asian applicants, leading to more invitations. At this point, we could super-analyze everything and still be wrong - it is fun though :) !

Yup, applicant from Mumbai here. Got the email last night. I scheduled mine for the 22nd.



That's nice!

I just went to register, and it looks like all the interview slots are full up already! "This event is closed and is no longer accepting registrations."

I guess I'll have to send them an email to check.


Same here. Did you write them ?



Yep, wrote them. I'm assuming they didn't ACTUALLY send out more interview invites than they had slots, and that this will be fixed pretty soon.

Thats great! Looks like it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, since you got weekend slots opened out - unless of course you'd rather have done the interview on a weekday...

All the best!

Wait-listed - Boston, MA and because sharing is caring, here you go:

"The MIT Sloan MBA Program Admissions Committee has completed its evaluations. The exceptionally strong competition prevents us from including you among those admitted at this time. We can, however, offer you a place on our waiting list.

Each year some candidates who have accepted offers of admission find it necessary to change their plans. The varied nature of these changes makes it impossible to predict whether a place in the entering class might become available before next May, but you can be sure that we recognize the importance of time in your planning. Should it become apparent that we will not have the opportunity to admit candidates from the waiting list, we will be sure to inform you so that you may plan accordingly.

Please go to the Waiting List Information page and indicate before March 8, 2013 whether you wish to accept a place on the waiting list and, if so, the last date on which you would accept an offer of admission. We will also hold a waiting list online chat in early April, and the details are found via the link above.

We look forward to hearing from you."

Any thoughts on wait-lists?

Are Sloan interviews blind? do they read the application before the interview?

Thank you all, best!

Sloan interviews are not blind. Your interviewer will have thoroughly read your application and will have questions specifically tailored to your candidacy.
