Hey all - I was super excited and fortunate to receive an interview invite on Monday.

Forgive the crazy question, but due to my current work situation, I can't interview in Cambridge until early December (the last 3-5 days of interviews). I know decisions come out Dec 19. Is there any strategy to interview date? Since it's not rolling, I can't imagine there would be, but it feels uncomfortable to be one of the last to interview. :?


arbybee

Do they conduct skype interviews? If so, did you consider that option?

Forgive for my basic question. Do they conduct skype interviews? If so, did you consider that option?


They do, but I'm US based and on the East Coast. My preference is in-person on campus. Just wondering if there's any strategy or pro/con behind figuring out a way to move my interview up.

I couldn't be of much help but I guess it is a tradeoff for you between doing the interview early and doing the in-person interview. Did you reach out to adcomm about this? I guess they will guide you better.

Hey, just choose the date most comfortable for you. You have genuine reasons for scheduling late. I am sure if asked you can convey the adcoms about the same. Moreover, if they have dates reserved that late, then it means they are Ok with applicants interviewing that late. Besides, someone or the other will be the last, right? If there were 100 things affecting your outcome, when you interviewed would be the least effective in impacting your decision. Simply put, it doesn't make sense. So, just go with the dates comfortable with you.

Here's a positive of doing your interview late: Sloan adcoms DEFINITELY ask what has changed since you applied. Maybe you can present your most recent impactful work and tell a story how work kept you occupied (of course if that's meaningful). So, I'd reiterate, just go for the dates best suited for you.

Hope it helps. :)

Thanks! I realize how illogical my question seemed (or emotional...) but just needed a little assuagement. if you couldn't tell, I REALLY like Sloan. Thanks again!

Hi -
I'm reporting back from my MIT interview today, and curious to hear about others' experiences.

Ultimately, I found it to be harder than I expected. I had prepared quite a bit and had answers ready for almost every behavioral interview question I could imagine, but the questions were more specific and detailed than I was ready for.

I interviewed on campus, which was nice. It was exciting to be in the admissions office and see all of the committee members who i recognized from the MIT sloan YT channel.

Has anyone else had their R1 interview? Wondering how you feel!

I took the interview in India with a member of the admissions committee. The Interviewer was Mr. Rod Garica. Contrary to my expectations he didn't go into much details of the story. There were more general questions than behavioral ones. He also deep dived into my profile, work experience and even my contribution to the university. Overall, the experience was pleasant.

Hey sunnysourav, do you mind putting up an interview debrief? It will be helpful for others. :)

I'm applying for R2. Please what does MIT Sloan mean by "REDACT your name, address, and contact information" in the resume section?

By Redact, they mean you can either remove your name, address, and contact info or darken the info (this would look ugly).

I would go for the former as this will give you extra space to fit in another achievement/extra-curricular/award.

Hi fellow applicants! I have a question about the resume. For the professional section, I see that MIT asks for dates:
Quote:
Work Experience - please list in reverse chronological order and include: company name, title, results-oriented bullets that demonstrate your skill set, and dates.

Does anyone interpret that as needing the day, in addition to the month and year? It looks ugly to me when I include the day of the month, but I don't want to put aesthetics over their requirements if others think the adcom is asking for day, month, and year for the start and end of each position.
