I agree too. I tried to factor it in my inference. Raw data suggests only 25% of invites are out. We can be more conservative and say that approx 60% of R1 invites are out. That still leaves 40% to go..

Got an invite a few hours back :)


Congratulations Souvik! What is your interview date? And how much time do you have to write your essay?

Two Indians have updated their invites here. Now am getting worried.

Livewire has reported quite some interview invites for New Delhi location. Do not mean to spread the negativity but this might well be game over for Indians.

Hi Everyone.

Congrats to those that secured interviews yesterday! Just a quick question, has anyone that specified London as their first choice received an invitation to interview yet?

Thanks :)

I too got my invite. However, it will be quite a hassle to get the Army to give me a leave during the interview period.

Many congratulations to everyone who got an invite!! :) :) :) do drop in a line as to how prep is going.

I have two questions. Any insight would be appreciated.

My understanding is that interview dates are from October 30 to mid November. Wanted to know if that is the case for those who got invites in the first and second wave as well?

So if one was to get an invite in the next wave... say for Delhi or Cambridge or wherever, would the interview dates be the same? It would just mean less time to prepare / write the essay.

Secondly, based on past trends or last years history, once Sloan is done with a particular region do they not revisit it in subsequent rounds? I've noticed that Cambridge invites have been coming in the last two waves

Thanks! :)

I am from Mumbai and got an interview invite yesterday. When I was booking my interview slot in Delhi, I noticed that there were about 8 slots per day and the dates were mentioned as 6th to 9th Nov. Does it mean that in R1 they would be giving a total of 4X8=32 interview calls to India based candidates. But then, there could be more than one interviewer visiting India meaning more than one candidate could be interviewed in a single slot. What do others think?



Does it mean game over for us Indians who did not get an invite?

Congrats! You will get an email from adcom with detailed info on behavioral interview and what you should do to prep.
In the meantime you can find a list of on the internet for “tell me about a time..” type questions, and think of all the examples from your life.

Also read up on MIT in detail.
