Hope everyone is doing well. Just one week left to submit your application in R2. Good luck to all applicants!!

I spent some time on studying stats of previous Sloan applicants to analyze admission trends and acceptance chances of applicants at MIT Sloan. This analysis is based on our accumulated forum data of applicants. I have analysed the forum data of Sloan applicants from 2012 to 2016 to determine acceptance chances by GMAT score, admission rounds, industry, age, country, etc.

The data used for this analysis is self-reported, so it's advised to use findings of this analysis with discretion. They are meant to give only a general idea of admission scenario at MIT Sloan. Don't presume that these findings will hold true all the time.

I welcome any comments, opinions, suggestions or anything else that you might have to say about the findings of this analysis.

....

Thanks for the analysis Narenn.

The acceptance rate for Southeast Asia last year was surprisingly low. Hope it'd be better this year though. :-D

The round 2 deadline is getting close.
Anybody working on R2 apps around here?
I'm planning to send an application with an optional written essay.
Wondering if it's a good idea or multimedia format would be better?

Just curious what everyone did for their optional essay! Video? Powerpoint? Just the essay?

I somehow pulled a video together at the last minute (had never used imovie before in my life so that was an experience) but I'm wondering if that's the exception or the norm.

MIT Sloan Master of Finance (MFin): Interview Tips & Updates [#permalink]

New post 17 Jan 2017, 17:00
FROM Sloan Admissions Blog: MIT Sloan Master of Finance (MFin): Interview Tips & Updates
Congratulations to those of you who have submitted an application for our Master of Finance (MFin) program! Our admissions team is busy reading your applications, and we are excited to learn more about you!

A critical part of our evaluation process is the interview. It is an opportunity to bring your application to life and for us to get to know you a little better. In addition, the interview is an important time for us (and you!) to assess your fit with the MIT Sloan community. I encourage you to look at the attached interview guide with information to help you prepare. Since many of you are asking, here is what to expect:

  • Interviews are by invitation only and are a requirement for admission.
  • Interview invitations will begin going out on Monday, January 23rd and will continue to be sent on a rolling basis.  We make every effort to send interview invitations at least 1 week prior to your interview date.  The timing of your interview invitation is not a reflection of the strength of your candidacy. It’s about ensuring the quality and consistency of reviews and to ensure things go smoothly with interview sign-ups.
  • Interviews will be held from January 30 – February 22.
  • Interviews will be conducted in person in several key locations around the globe including Cambridge MA, London, Mumbai, Santiago, Singapore, Beijing, and Shanghai.
  • Candidates who are invited to interview will sign up for a 45-minute to 1-hour time block and will meet with 1-2 interviewers.
  • The interview will consist of both a behavioral assessment and a career assessment.

For more information, please join Kim Ebeling, Assistant Director of Admissions, for a series of admissions interview tip videos.  Upcoming videos will be posted on our MIT Sloan Admissions Facebook page and will highlight some important interview tips!

I made a video using videoscribe. I read somewhere that almost 50% folks make multimedia stuff while remaining 50% do written essays...

Last year the first interview invites on clear admit were reported on 02/18, and the deadline for R2 was 02/14. So they started send interivew invites 35 days after the deadline.

If they follow that same pattern this year, they will start sending invites on 02/21/2017.
