I'm on the phone app (and it's a bit buggy), so I apologize if this question has been asked already! Does anyone know if Sloan will be sending invitations all day today? And if they're sending rejection emails?

Round 2 is the new Round 3 at MIT. No Indian invites at all. That's not being very transparent

Dinged without interview- very disappointing but at least the wait is over.
A few people from MIT (Alums and students) advised me to apply R1 (Couldn't because of work commitments)- I guess they had a point.

Good luck everyone!

Just because you were expecting different results from other schools doesn't diminish the fact that you got an interview invite from MIT Sloan and frankly is a huge insult to all those who *DO* consider this a huge accomplishment. I hope they give your spot to someone who actually wants it.


Not that I care about what you hope. You can hope whatever you want.
But I would ask you to be less judgemental.
You don't know me and don't know what I do and don't want, and yet you make assumptions and wish something bad for me.

I never said I don't want it. I just said that being invited to interview is not an achievement.
If you really don't see the difference, I plea you to ponder this.

Fully appreciate the sensitivity and empathize with everyone who got dinged by MIT, but I really need to ask this out of curiosity, it's been consuming me for the past couple of days.

Has any R1 applicant from India been interviewed/waitlisted/admitted into the Sloan program yet? I can say per Livewire posts that there are barely 2-3 Indian invitees in R2 and I honestly think even this is an overestimate (also fully understand that most Indians may not use Livewire, but they sure use GMAT Club, at least those with such a commitment level that they can pull together an M7 applicantion). I fully understand that Sloan has rejected people with amazing stats and resumes from around the world, but this seems unusually cruel by any objective standards. Their class has 4% from South Asia, so that's less than 14 from India. Having made a visit to their campus all the way from India in December, I can say that it really seems lower than that. Does Sloan have something against Indians?

Given the way the invites have been handled for Indians in R2, something does seem off to me. I've done my best to canvass not just GMAT club and Livewire etc but the % of Indian applicants who got invites in R2 seems completely out of whack. I wanted to check if they got their quota of Indians in R1 and the data from GMAT Club and Livewire suggests otherwise. So my fellow Indian applicants to Sloan who got invited, where art thou?

I understand people might not be willing to debate this, or that it might not be a debate-worthy topic, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who's curious on this. Any one has more information on this, please share. Thanks

They had written on their blog that in round 2, they would be interviewing in 13 cities. And this list did not have any indian city. It was pretty clear that they would invite very few indians this round. I think they couldn't find any good indian candidates.

Don't know about India, but for Russia the quotas are even lower than usual.

Don't know whether the reason lies in internal or external politics though.

R1 admit. As much as I know, Stanford, Haas and MIT have the lowest acceptance rate for Indians, with ~ 5 Indian students in their class. Also, any whatsapp group for the admitted students?

Believe me when I say I feel your pain. I think being an international applicant is just that much tougher than being a domestic one. I am from Hong Kong, and I doubt they are admitting many from the East Asian region in R2. Not to mention the competition is cut-throat; there are plenty in China, Korea, Taiwan and the likes who are desperate to leave their home country to go to the US for better opportunities.

I have heard people tell me that international quotas are mostly filled up in R1 for most if not all top-tier programs. I used to doubt the validity of that viewpoint, but now I have come to believe it is true. Let's apply R1 next year to boost our chances, shall we?

In the meantime, to those of you who are dedicated to get into Sloan but got rejected this time around, let's form a support group to help each other prepare for our next R1 applications! Let me know if you are interested.

I applied to the LGO program and I wasnt admitted.
My application was automatically considered for R2 Sloan. I didnt get interview invite.
I didnt receive any emails. Do they send reject emails ?

Also I am able to view only the LGO decision and not able to view Sloan Decisions/Emails on the website.
Is the Sloan decision posted on the website for people who applied to LGO/Sloan program ?
Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Congratulations to all those who got admitted and Best of Luck to all who received interview invites.
