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


Hey guys, after looking for old posts and reaching out to people on the thread by PM, I can say that perhaps 2 guys got invited to interviews in R1 and one of them got the final admission. On the Feb 20th long weekend, they had what they call AdMIT (clever right :-D ) weekend and they posted a pic on twitter. I don't know how these things work and not sure whether people from outside the country even bother to show up, but basically I see 4 people of 'South Asian' origin (sorry, I don't mean to be insensitive at all, but desperate times :| ) and I know 2 of the 4 are current students (met them on campus), so basically some 1-2 people in a picture of maybe 100-150 people. Assuming most of the admits in US showed up, that probably means they admitted maybe 200 people in R1. We know only 1 Indian in R1 from GMAT club and zero invites in R2. This is really heartbreaking. I usually stay away from these sort of things but was heavily invested in this decision, went to their campus towards the end of last year all the way from India, didn't even bother to visit many other schools (and applied only to MIT among the ones I actually visited). Will take sometime to recover. :|

Guys, don't bother yourself, seriously. Any school just a school.

Yes, it's cool, there is no doubt! But life does not end here. Go to McKinsey or Goldman, or whatever company is interesting for you, earn a lot of money, make an exit and start a startup. Whatever, there are so many opportunities around, so many ways to build your beautiful future. Look at how many people are exceptionally succesful without a degree! Did Richard Feynman or Elon Mask had MBA degree? Sakharov, Oppenheimer, anyone? Watt, Gates, Newton? Mmm? There's no reason to think that any company or institution is your only way to be a good man and have a good life.

Look at Jack Ma, guy was rejected like 5 times and now is one of the richest men on Earth. Brian Akton failed job interview with Facebook and then sold Whatsapp back to them for billions. If he did not fail that day he would probably earn 100k nowadays, ha-ha.

Every selection is subjective by definition. Yes, school do their best to gather best candidates! But it doesn't imply that you are not worth it if you are not admitted. Imagine having 6k candidates for 400 spots. Yes, 4k can probably go away right away. And then you got 2k left and all of them work for world's best companies, have 750+ GMAT, 4.0 GPA and are super motivated.

You all are great, young and you can do anything and be anyone you want. Take care!

I was there last week for class visit. It just didn't feel right. Students were excited but their excitement didn't feel organic , it was more of forced.
I don't know, its hard to explain. But like i said in my opinion it felt overrated.

This is wildly off base. I know several Indian admits in my city alone, and many more in the admitted students group.

I don't usually write on such topics but I would like to share some of my experiences which may help some of you guys in the forum.

First, the data in "decision tracker" is a bit misrepresented. When you see the "location" in decision tracker it only shows the present location and not the nationality. For eg. I'm an Indian living in Singapore since 2014. When I update in decision tracker it shows my location as "Singapore". This might confuse someone because for the B-school I still fall under the Indian category. When schools put figures on their website (eg. 4% from South Asia) it's the nationality (determined by your passport) that counts and not the work visa/PR status. Hence, when you see "United States" in the decision tracker, he/she may well be an Indian residing in US.

As you can see from my stats, I applied to schools all across geographies, hence I researched on a lot of schools. A lot of my friends in Singapore and India applied to multiple international programs as well. My general observation is that people who were staying abroad i.e. NRI (Non-Resident Indians) were quite significantly preferred over those who have worked only in India. I know folks with very similar profiles getting calls just because they have international experience. This counts even more as you go up the rankings for schools.

I have myself been dinged by multiple schools (probably the most for any1 out here on gmatclub), but I don't think schools are unfair in any way. They value diversity and every school is pretty vocal about it. In my case, I think every school gave a pretty good chance to put my case forward through the application and interview and I humbly accept the outcome. Also, I thank and respect the schools that have given me an admit and I'll make sure I give my 100% in the program to be a good alum of the school :-D

These are just my thoughts and perspective. Thanks...

I see people here have already updated their status from Sloan. Is Sloan accepting students on a rolling basis, or are these from R1? I just interviewed, wondering if I can already expect to hear back.
