Waiting on that next set of US based interviews. Hoping maybe this afternoon, after they had some time to think this weekend.

I've applied in round 1 with a preference to have my interview in the US , however while communicating through emails with the admission team I've found it more relevant to have my interview in one of the international locations . Not sure if I my application has been considered will they send me invitation for Dec or later with other international candidates.

I got an invite today mid-afternoon, with Wednesday as the only available slot. I feel like that that's a little bit of a tight turnaround (< 24 hours to write their essay!), but I wonder if that's because I'm Boston based. Any way, I have my work cut out for me tonight...

Congratulations skiingavo for your first step. Not sure if that would mean they've almost sent all invitations for round 1 as Wednesday is the only available slot now. Did they ask you for another essay to write. Can you share with us your profile.

Regards,
Skydiver

Wow, good luck!

Do you happen to know when they looked at your optional video/content?

I don't. I did an essay. So at least there's one data point that says there's hope for those who don't make a video!

Anyone from India who received an invite ?

They have viewed my video essay twice (Sep 21 and Oct 21).

I put DEL as my 1st choice - haven't heard. There was one invite on livewire a while ago (early October) but nothing since. Haven't heard from anyone. Still hoping!

Nope, they've viewed my video essay about 4 times now. But no invite yet.

Damn this wait.

For those who have received interview invites, is there a pre-interview essay question to answer this year like last year?

Additional Essay:
All candidates invited to interview are required to submit an additional short-answer essay.

The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice. Please share with us something about your past that aligns with this mission. (250 words or less)

Please complete and submit your essay no later than 24 hours prior to the start time of your interview.

thank you! I am actually asking about the optional essay, not the one that you have to submit after interim review invite. Did anyone who received an interview didn't submit an optional essay? Thank you very much!

I feel like everyone is going nuts on livewire about both GSB and MIT. I know I am too (for MIT)

What are you guys' take on how the batches of invites are sent out - based on current location or citizenship? International applicant based in Boston - not sure whether I should call it quits...

I can understand that guy's frustration with the whole process. But then there are these trolls there too -

"Note: Mr. Garcia, MIT Sloan is about invention. It's about ideas that are made to matter. I am disrupting the trolling market and would like an actual interview invite instead of one of my fake invites I've posted."

Its funny how they have finally decided that it is time to come out in the open about this lol

I hope by November 1st we get a decisive 'Invite for Interview' or 'Rejected' status update, and not something that leaves us hanging.

New post 27 Oct 2016, 07:00
FROM Sloan Admissions Blog: MBA Admissions Interview Insights
For those of you preparing for interviews, our goal is to meet you and get to know you better. We are looking to collect as much information as possible to supplement your application and to help support your candidacy for MIT Sloan.

We use a Behavioral Event Interview (BEI) model to assess candidates for the MBA program. Our interviewer will spend 30-45 minutes asking questions about your past experiences to better learn how you think, act, and reflect. It’s important to come prepared with stories and examples that you did not discuss within your written application. Keep in mind your interviewer will have reviewed your application prior to meeting with you.

Check out this video of Jen Barba, Associate Director of Admissions, with tips on what to expect during the interview.

This Round we are travelling to 20 different cities to meet with you. If you are visiting campus for your interview, we encourage you to take advantage of the programming we’ve put together to help you learn more about us – you’ll have a chance to visit class and/or join current students for lunch.

Here’s a quick recap with some important tips on the interview:

  • Ask important & thoughtful questions that are meaningful to you!
  • Do your research prior to the interview!…We are not only assessing your past experiences but also your fit with, and enthusiasm for MIT Sloan.
  • Be professional. Dress in business attire.
As a reminder, we will continue to send interview invitations until November 1st. By that date, every R1 applicant will receive an updated decision status.

Livewire is going to drive me insane. I can't stop looking, but the reliability has gone out the window. Really need to disconnect from this constant heartache, but I'm hooked

We all are mate. My take is that most of the livewire posted to date are fake. So we will need to wait... In the end I submitted 2 hours before the deadline... so should be giving them the benefit!
