I had an interview last week and I did not get any behavioral questions at all. No "what change since last application?", no "why Sloan?", no "how will you contribute?".
Every single question was resume-based.

Did anyone else have a similar experience? Should I be worried?

Anyone have done interview on Skype? how did it go?



I did Skype interview today. It went well I think, pretty standard: 4-5 behavioral questions, most of them about challenging situations; why MBA, Why Sloan. The interviewer was really nice, and made me feel quite comfortable.

I just had my interview at MIT Sloan on-campus last week. I was in and out of the interview room in 20 mins (from 30-45 mins slot). I don't think that is a good sign. I might have fumbled through a couple of my answers. I sent a thank-you note and received a reply from adcom saying that they enjoyed the conversation. Do I dare continue keeping hope? Any thoughts?

Hard to tell without more context but that does seem to be on the shorter side (my on-campus interview was 45 mins I believe). Honestly though at this point I won't worry too much about it. What's done is done and you'll drive yourself crazy trying to analyze something that's out of your control. It's impressive that you even got an interview (only 20-25% of R2 applicants can say they have)! We only have a little less than two weeks to wait :-)

If it makes you feel any better my interview was closer to 25 minutes and I got in with $$$.

If it makes you feel better, my interview was almost an hour and I was waitlisted.

Thanks everyone. I guess we just wait for 3rd. Do admitted students hear back a day earlier via phone or everyone (A, WL, R) all hear on 3rd?

The admitted candidates usually receive the admit call a day before. :-)

My interview was really relaxed and welcoming. I expected stony-faced adcoms, but was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite. It was more of a detailed drill down on one story / project I knew very well and not stressful at all. They made it pretty clear that they want to advocate for you and just want to seek out elements of your story that support your application better.

I was interviewed off-campus then sent thank-you note to mbaadcom.mitsloan@mit.edu. I didn't received a reply from the interviewer but an email looks like to be sent to every interviewee 2 days after my interview. Should I worry that my email was lost or went to spam?

I really don't think it matters or has any effect on decisions.

I was told by my interviewer that everyone hears back on the 3rd. She specifically said that admitted students DO NOT get a call a day earlier.

I asked my interviewer for her contact details and she gave me her own MIT Sloan email ID not the general MBA adcom one. Maybe that's why I received a reply back from her.
