My video has also not been viewed (1m on YouTube).

I actually take it as a mildly good thing: no way are the adcom not going to check it, so not being viewed and not getting an invite (yet!) is totally consistent.

Take a deep breath and get ready for the long wait...

Saw an email from MIT and almost got excited. But the excitement ended immediately as I saw the complete subject line that read 'Reminder: MIT Sloan on the Road in NYC & Cambridge'. huh.


Ha! Trust me, MIT Sloan is the worst for this!

I had a rollercoaster ride (7 week wait between submission and interview) last season and those email coming out every few days didn't help!!

Trying to keep my cool this time. Somehow it's not working so well :)

I am not sure if I would rather be in your shoes or mine (Adcom has seen my video but no invite yet). Is anyone applying from the Southeast in the US?

For those who haven't received invites yet, where are you from? I am in the US (northeast).

So... I just saw this video today: http://youtu.be/spX2Lba5mEI

At 8:43, Rod Garcia mentions that the single most important advice he can give is for us to visit the school. Does anyone here know how important is that? I didn't visit the school and feel slightly uncomfortable about whether I wrote "from the heart" or not. I don't know about what everyone's vacation schedule is like... But I only have 10 days of vacation a year, and I don't think visiting ANY school is possible outside of the interviews. Nevertheless, I did do thorough research and wrote what I believe were very Sloan-specific essays.

Thoughts?

I am from the Midwest. I'd really like to know where are the interview locations actually.

It seems that invitations just went out for West Coast. I'm from
Southwest.

Sloan-specific essays? I don't get it. The essay questions don't ask about Sloan. I mean, if any other school had asked the same questions, my response would have been exactly the same.

Are you implying you received one already?

If not, how do you know that others have received notifications?

If you move to the previous page on this topic you will see two posts about people receiving interview invites in the LA I guess.

Congrats to everyone who received an interview invite! You are almost finished, but do not underestimate this last step of the process. The interview is your time to shine, so be sure you are well prepared. While there are a lot of similarities between B school interviews and job interviews, there are also a number of differences. One of the major differences is you get only one interview and it is a pretty short one. Contact me for professional help if you want to know how to best prepare for your interviews and/or you want to make sure you ace them! Good luck!

Well, doesn't Essay 1 relate to the mission of the MIT sloan program? Though the question then asks to talk about ideas which could be applicable across other B-schools.

Hi there. I tend to think that schools appreciate that not everyone can get to visit them, due to distance or other commitments, so don't sweat it.

I would advise to go there for your interview though, more for your sake than anything else. In the meantime, you can reach out to current students and alums and form an accurate opinion of student life there, certainly enough to write your essays with a Sloan-specific focus.

Fyi I visited HBS and MIT Sloan last Spring and was blown away by the energy and collaborative spirit at Sloan - it made me realise that I really wanted to be there!

Best of luck with your application!

Hi, guys. I've checked You Tube Analytics and there's a visit from Massachusetts, but it mentions on estimated minutes watched "0:00". Do you guys have the same? Any thoughts?

I really wish they'd stop sending emails that look like: "MIT Sloan: YOU'RE INVITED...to visit our many events."

I think it must mean that Admissions opened the video and then thought "nah, nice try" and X'd out. Sorry bro.





...Kidding. Lot of things could have happened, maybe the browser crashed; or the person opened the video for it to load, but didn't get to it before leaving for the day; or YouTube Analytics crashed. Hang tight!

Or alternatively, they opened the video and thought "Wow! I like the looks of this guy, I've seen enough!" ;)
