Ding. And all schools say that they cannot provide post-ding evaluation. To be honest, I think they have to provide feedback. At the end of the day the application fee is $250, it's a huge cost (given if you apply to 5-6 schools). So it is not fair not to provide a feedback. $250 only for reviewing your application and getting a ding. I really want to know why I got dinged. Based on what? I start believing admissions process is more subjective.

What are you talking about my fellow Canadian? They don't have to provide you anything. Where does it say anything like that? You're paying to get into the school and you either do or do not get in. They don't owe you anything more than a response regardless of how much it costs. Obviously the process is subjective. They're calling the shots, it's their game that you're trying to play.

I think the answer to your problem is where admission consultants come in and you get to shell out even more money. Kinda sad but the entire process is a business. That's why schools will almost always tell you to apply, they want your money and have a high number of rejections.

I still wish that they provided some sort of feedback, such as GMAT too low, GPA too low, not enough experience, too much experience, not enough extra curricular etc... My admission consultant told me that my main issue was my age (33), and I can't do anything about it. I actually asked the MIT people about it and they said it wasn't an issue. They even said that my profile was great for MIT and encouraged me to apply. Well, they didn't even give me a interview.

PS This is just my post ding whining. I'll get over it.

This whole admissions process is a matter of luck.

I've seen some laughably unqualified and frankly weird people get admissions from H/S and other M7's (and even people who blatantly lied to get in), while some very inspiring folks with superb work experience and stats get rejected from these same programs.

Don't allow your rejections to devalue yourself.

5-10 years down the road, it isn't your MBA brand that makes or breaks you - it's your personal brand that matters.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I agree with everything you've said. It's such a random process.

This ding officially closes my application attempt this year. With ding from 6/6 without interview, I need some time to put my self together. The age factor (32) is already weighing on me and will continue to haunt me next year. May be I will use optional essays to account for my age and stress on "Why MBA", something I didn't leverage this year. MBA application process is brutal, driven by strategy and luck besides all those creamy stats, and it has made me "Master of Dings". Disappointing :(

Dude, you really think a world class institution is going to open itself up to lawsuits and public scorn by giving rejects a direct answer? Hell, even if you were 50yo they wouldn't give you a direct answer, instead answering something like "while your age is above our class median upon matriculation we still encourage you to apply as every year we accept a number of applicants that are well outside of the traditional bucket. Good luck!" Then they would go in a back room with each other, have a good laugh and then proceed to throw your application in the trash without bothering to read your last name. smh

Hey all, it's nice to see the gmat scores of those who got dinged, it gives some prospective into the process.

For the guy mentioning age, I'm 34. I think those with a mid 700 s gmat could easily get into a program where the avg gmat is in the mid to high 600s because you'll bring up the average a lot. That's just my gut feeling. Schools like Sloan and hbs get so many applicants they can do whatever they want. Including pass up on scores like that.

As another guy implied, it's nice to go where you feel wanted too.
