They ARE great; their response time is usually several hours. And they DO answer questions, and make things very clear.

Got this reply from MIT Sloan (after 9 days):
In response to your email, just continue with your subjects in the next

"Unprotecting" the sheet is a no-no. I asked a few people who create such forms for other purposes, and they say quite often a user-submitted spreadsheet is then used as part of a database so keeping the original formatting is important.

I am applying to R2 so my essays are still in the embryonic form but coming to life slowly.

I want to visit the school in November.

i wonder why mit asks for your geographic region even though you already specify your state. im in VA, and grouped into the South...i wonder if there are less apps from the South.

For the life of me, I dont remember the name of the calculus course that I took in college. There are 4 math courses on my engineering transcripts and about zillion other quantitative subjects like thermodynamics, operational research...blah blah blah.

Of the 4 math courses, the 1st 3 are very originally named as Math 1, Math 2 and Math 3

The other course is "Numerical Methods". I sort of remember doing a bunch of integrals, differential stuff in the NM course and am inclined to put my grades in this course for the "calculus score" question.

Is n't the title of the course important?

For example, we use some statistical tools in economics courses. In that case are we eligible to mention economics courses as statistics courses?

Well, its a pure math course. its not economics or anything. Interestingly, wiki lists the following as "areas of study" for NM.

2 Areas of study
2.1 Computing values of functions
2.2 Interpolation, extrapolation and regression
2.3 Solving equations and systems of equations
2.4 Solving eigenvalue or singular value problems
2.5 Optimization
2.6 Evaluating integrals
2.7 Differential equations

I remember doing all of these.

Keep those comments coming. I am trying to get hold of one of my classmates to get hold of a detailed syllabus description.

2.6 Evaluating integrals
2.7 Differential equations

this shows that your course is very much a Calculus course, though I am not sure of the depth of the coverage. How about confirming with Admissions people?

I'm having nightmares with Sloan's essays. I think the Cover Letter, 1 and 2 are ok. However, 3 and 4 suck big time. I also think my supplemental info essay is good.

Will have to work a lot this weekend...

I am so unhappy with my MIT essays at this time. Out of the 3 apps I have worked on until now, this is my worst package, by far.

Cover Letter:B-
Impact:C
Defend:C
Challenging Interaction:A-
Execute Plan:C

I have the overwhelming urge to just give up on any more edits and hit the submit button

Any one else in my titanic?

So you aren't applying to the E&I program? I thought that was an obvious choice for you.

Yes, it is. But, the program is still not mature. And I dont have the time to work on an additional essay. If by some miracle, I get in, then I will pursue the E&I after I have a chance to check it out from close.

dabots, I am sure mNeo is correct. If you are applying to E&I, you should write an additional essay about "a time when you shared expertise with a group" or something similar.
