Just scraped livewire to compare 2015 to 2016 interview invite frequency and time range. Looks like there may be a few more invites, but no more big invite days...


First invites +25 days (last invite 2015 on livewire)
2015 2015-10-20 2015-11-14
2016 2016-10-05 2016-10-30 (close enough to nov 1)

2015 2016

On the other hand, if you do a much simpler comparison with gmatclub's figures with last year's, it will show that last year a total of 30% were invited in R1 whereas this year is at only 4% so far. It is true that some will update their status later on as they progress, nevertheless a similar comparison to schools that have already sent all their invites, such as Ross, does not show this big of a difference (22 for '19 vs. 30 for '18). So assuming that the Sloan and Ross applicants are equally active on gmatclub, this could be cause for optimism or maybe its just wishful thinking...

Hi All,

Can confirm. Just received an invite as did another friend in Texas. These are limited to the Dallas interview location (which interestingly was not a location option when I applied). Happy to answer any questions--could not be more excited! This is my absolute dream school. Good luck, all!

Nothing. Apparently interviews will be in Mid-Nov in Delhi so there is still hope that they send out some more invites today / early next week. On Livewire someone actually wrote: "Hi guys, I had an alum write to MIT Sloan to check when interview invites for India would be coming out. They mentioned that they will be sending out invites for all locations latest by end of this week. Also, interviews for Delhi will be happening over a few days in mid-November. Hope this helps! Best of luck to everyone!"

Thanks Bro! So today's the day. Another nervous night for Indian sub-continent then. I wish all of you have smiling faces looking at the cellphones early morning tomorrow.

Apparently Cambridge is done. According to Livewire a current Sloan student spoke to an adcom today about this.

Its amazing to me that for some locations like India, interviews just haven't gone out (apart from one post in livewire which I now think could be a troll too) ! If too much demand is the reason for delay, that's understandable so far as everyone gets their invites by 1st Nov.

That being said, I do feel anxious in India now. Last year, Sloan had the highest number of R1 applications (compared to previous years) so the competition to get an interview places like India and China got worse. Seems like the number of applicants this year are on par or higher than last year given the delay in invitations relative to last year or year before.

Best of luck for Monday to all Indians!
