Disagree, wear something appropriate. I’d probably avoid soccer jerseys or anything too loud but I think they want to see that you can look professional without being a drone.

I did the opposite of this. Nowhere in the instructions does it say "Be professional"... in fact, the prompt is about introducing yourself to your future classmates. I filmed my intro outside in the context of a hobby that I am passionate about because... that's how I would actually want to introduce myself to my classmates. I understand it's a bit of a higher-risk strategy, but hey, that's who I am, and if MIT doesn't like quirky, out-of-the-box thinkers, then I'm probably not a good fit there anyway.

Text of the video invite below:

Please introduce yourself to your future classmates via a brief video statement.

This video will be used for application purposes only and will not be shared. You will need to use an internet-connected computer, with a webcam and microphone. As part of the application review, the Admission Committee will evaluate your response to see how you express yourself and to assess fit with the MIT Sloan culture. The simple, open-ended question is designed to help us get to know you better.

Videos should be a single take (no editing) lasting no more than one minute and consisting of you speaking directly to the camera. We recommend using an application such as QuickTime or iMovie to record yourself.

Hi all,
Anyone from India who has applied in the past / is applying this year - any insights as to when MIT Sloan sends out invites for the South Asia region based on past experience? Any updates from those who have received invites so far? Thanks :)

Going by the last year's thread. It seems Indian applicants got interview invites or ding notifications on the last day of the interview invites. The difference this time from last year is that adcom has explicitly given the dates on which interview invites will be sent. But it remains to be seen when will invites for New Delhi location go out. If the adcom follows the pattern Indian applicants might have to wait till the last round of interview invites.

There has not been a lot of invites going out last week so it is hard to say but as far as I observed, it was a burst
