Congrats msday!

Out of curiosity, did you get the email near to when you posted (meaning, do they send them after normal business hours)?

Good to know, thanks!

(*starts praying that MIT doesn't do regional invites like last year* - I'm a fellow Bostonian; well a Cantabrigian to be precise)

One thing I recall from the MIT info session is that a GMAT below 650 leads them to "ask questions." Which means, I assume, that the rest of your app needs to be very solid.

MIT claims to be a "recommendation heavy" school. Do you have really strong recs? If so, and if you feel very confident about the rest of your app, it might be worth a shot.

Maybe try the Peer Review forum and see what other schools people suggest.

Good luck!

Why do you need to go now? You seem fairly young. My advice is to raise your GMAT score and wait another year or two. As of right now, I don't see a really good shot at MIT. They are the most quant heavy school out there, and your gmat q score is in the 50th %ile. I have no doubt you will be able to raise your score, your gpa seems on target.

If you need to go next year then figure out what your goals are and where you want to be. Then you can decide whether schools that you will be accepted to meet that.

first of all congrats to those that received invites. I am an international applicant but located in the Boston Area, so I am not sure how that works, although I am not sure MIT is sending the interviews by location this time. I am just wondering, does the application status change online from submitted to invited to interview or smtg?
