Funny thing.

I have had one view from New York in the last week of september and three views from Mass (One - last week of September and two - second week of October)
What does this even mean? Does the revisit mean reconsideration?



PS: My video is unlisted on youtube so these can't be random public viewings.
PPS: I really need to get off the forums. This is driving me nuts


I'm in the exact same boat as you mate, forums are driving me insane and can't make sense of the viewing activity...

And yet, I'm still here. Sucker for pain, I think.
Two more weeks to go.

*Need to focus on other actual interviews*

there was a typo in the previous reply and it's already changed

the essay is optional. someone mentioned that it's just a deal breaker when there's a tie in the applicant's weighted score. (adcom told me on a roadshow that they would evaluate candidates by giving scores to different attributes.. then an applicant has a certain score)

With you, this part sucks... What's the consensus on when we start to hear anything? Next week or the week after?


I just hope its today... or then its the weekend and adcoms are surely not working on weekends at this point...

There are two weeks and a little more left to send the invites... so they better go out soon.


Wouldn't say adcom doesn't work on weekends. I do know of GSB people who received invites on a Sunday morning for example.

Kind of same for me. Looking at my video views from Massachusetts, I have the following stats:

1. Sep. 22nd, 1 view full 2 mins
2. Sep. 23rd, 1 view full 2 mins
3. Oct 13th, 1 view full 2 mins
4. Oct 14th, 3 views full 2 mins each

My vid has been viewed 6 times. They better not be cracking jokes watching my video during lunch times!

I believe we should should start seeing invites in the next few days. Its been 4 weeks since the deadline so the coming week falls right in the 4-6 week timeframe that I believe MIT generally takes. Fingers crossed!

I really wouldn't call it slow. I'd rather have them read the applications thoroughly than rush the proces... :-)

I think what they meant is that the essay is NOT optional although it's said optional on their website "From what admissions said at an info session I went to, the optional essay is really "optional" this year for that reason. They explicitly said to do the essay and sort of implied that not doing it would hurt the application." This sentence is missing a NOT between really and optional...

Since there are more than 3 people confirmed this and they all said the adcom specifically said this, I think I'm really screwed.

I just hate it when people explicitly say something when they really don't mean it. Just ask for an essay if you want one!!!
