Anyone received this text on the letter: "Your application has been reviewed by the Admissions Committee, and we have decided to

hold it for further consideration in March.We received a record number of early applicants..."

I did not get an interview nor a reject. How should this be interpreted?

BOOKMARKED
Had my interview over Skype.

You should expect around 30-40 minutes and the adcom is very nice. You'll be asked to introduce who you are and why you think SDM is the right match. Then there will be basic questions asking about instances from your work where you've demonstrated system levels thinking or mistakes that may have occurs because of bad systems decisions. Expect questions about how you motivate teams or have worked with people who don't share your point of view.

All basic MBA level questions and you should prepare with a STAR approach. https://www.livecareer.com/quintessenti ... terviewing

Also the adcom told me that they are a bit behind on processing applications. In fact it is only this week that they've started interviews. Likely the results will come out by end of NEXT week, not Feb 24 indicated on website.

I received the notification to arrange for my interview last Wednesday, and had just completed the interview last night - The questions asked were as per what NovDjokovic mentioned.

Indeed, the interviewer highlighted that the admission committee is one week behind schedule, so the results for the first round of interviews will only be known next week. I did not ask if the delay was due a "record number of early applicants", but it is certainly possible.

Meanwhile, I gathered from a previous email to the admission office that SDM "... admit 55-60 students each year and typically receive around 350-400 apps...". That puts the acceptance rate between 13% to 17%. However, a typical cohort only have 2/3 of its seats for students pursuing SDM on a full-time, on-campus basis (*inferred from the latest issue of Pulse. See page 25). If this is the case, assuming that we are likely to see more full-time applicants than DL students, the actual seats / acceptance rate for full-time students may be much lower, possibly 10+%.

Going further, I read somewhere that MIT (as a whole) interviews about 25% of the applicant pool. If this figure is to be believed, and with 60 seats in an applicant pool of 350~400, I will put the odds of getting through an interview at ~60%-70%. but then of course, different faculties may conduct their interviews differently, making all of above just my wild guesses.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

* Noted request for profile:
- GPA: 4.62/5.00 - National University of Singapore / Engineering
- GRE: 170Q, 161V, 4.0
- 7 years experience as a Military Officer

I have also received similar reply from Adcom.
