Has anyone seen anything similar in the past?


my slides in slideshare hasn't been seen from anyone from Mass yet. In your case it is probably various admission people looking at your video. Where are you based on?

I'm in the US. I figured it's probably them but trying to decipher whether it's a good thing or not.

I'm kind of freaking out about this. Seems just so weird that they sent the first invite like 2 weeks ago and since just nothing. On livewire there is also just 2 or 3. Highly suspicious! Going crazy... :-)

Is your video private or public?

Mine is private and I have one view from MA on a Saturday morning a few weeks ago.

Public and yeah they're all from a few weeks ago on separate days. I guess it could be other people watching it but why would they watch it all the way through, all other viewers have not. Regardless doesn't seem like anyone has any insight and I don't want to speculate and over analyze it, worrying myself more.

Haha - probably a good way to look at it! Kind of have the feeling they will send more invites next week. Maybe waiting until HBS and Booth are done. #hopinghard!

Probably they must have liked it and now they are showing it to each other :-D ..Because most of us have only one view from Mass. area.

In last year's applicant forum, people got invites before their files were even viewed. When they asked the admissions director, he said that they score each profile with a quantitative number, and that the optional essay is used in tie-breaking scenarios only (for either interview invites or admission invites). If you're a clear cut interview or admissions invite, they may never even look at your optional essay.

From my understanding, this year's optional carries a different weight than previous because there IS no other essay. So I don't think previous years' rules apply.... Just IMO.

From what admissions said at an info session I went to, the optional essay is really "optional" this year for that reason. They explicitly said to do the essay and sort of implied that not doing it would hurt the application.

With you, this part sucks... What's the consensus on when we start to hear anything? Next week or the week after?

I just hope its today... or then its the weekend and adcoms are surely not working on weekends at this point...

There are two weeks and a little more left to send the invites... so they better go out soon.

Funny thing.

I have had one view from New York in the last week of september and three views from Mass (One - last week of September and two - second week of October)
What does this even mean? Does the revisit mean reconsideration?



PS: My video is unlisted on youtube so these can't be random public viewings.
PPS: I really need to get off the forums. This is driving me nuts
