I visited the Admissions Office today and got to meet with an AdCom officer. She told me that anyone waitlisted w/o interview from Round 1 and who does not get an interview invitation in Round 2 will be taken off the waitlist on April 2 and not offered a place.

Did you receive a call?

Posted from my mobile device Image


Yes, I got a call from Jen Barba; I believe she's the waitlist manager for this year. She called to say that there is a "high priority waitlist" (all those talks about "no ranking" in waitlist is apparently not true) and I was on it. They wanted a quick turnaround so I have about a week to make my decision, which isn't hard at all for me!

As far as what I did to manage my waitlist status -- I got letters of support from (a) a recent alum whom I've known for a few years as friends; (b) 1st year student in a student org I was interested in joining and got in touch during the app process; and (c) 2nd year student from my previous employer. I made sure to help them outline how I can contribute to Sloan and basically why I need to be a part of c/o 2015! I also got an additional recommendation in from my boss.

Based on the research that I did, it seemed that Sloan AdComm appreciates support from the Sloan community, so I made sure my candidacy reflects that from various constituents from a recent alum to a 1st year student.

Good luck to everyone -- I'm sure AdComm will definitely hit up more people in the coming weeks/months.

submitted my letter on Friday. not too hopeful given all the stories how last year's class was oversubscribed, but I really hope there's some movement. Sloan is bar far my top choice.

good luck to all

MIT got over 4,600 apps this year. Not too optimistic here, but hopefully all of us waitlisted will get good news in the new couple of months.

Not the news you all we're expecting but at least there's definite closure. Good luck with invites over the next few weeks!
