I asked this in the MIT-LGO thread, but maybe someone has additional insight here based on open chats with the adcoms...

Since it looks like R2 Sloan dings were sent out yesterday for those who were not interviewed, should the LGO applicants who were dinged specifically for LGO still expect to wait until the final R2 decisions even if they never had an interview? I was dinged without interview for LGO but at this time my application still says I am being considered for Sloan and there has been no update since March 1st.

I know it's a long shot since I have yet to even have an interview but additional clarity to this process would be nice.

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 :(
same here. Ding on 5/5 and am 34. We should exchange notes of we go for next year ;-)

Just got done with my interview.

I was surprised by how the interviewer focused mostly on how I deal with people. He probably asked me 10 variations of the same question.

Anyway, does anyone know the interview to acceptance percentage for MIT? MBADataguru did not have stats for MIT the last time I checked.

Just gone done with mine too. Don't think I did well at all. Completely freaked out in the first 15 minutes. Barely any behavioral questions.

I've seen stats that range from 50% to 75%


I similarly received a lot of questions around how I deal with people: how I maintain relationships, how I navigate team conflict, how I work with different types of people/personalities, etc. Sloan was my only interview with behavioral questions, but overall, it was my favorite interview experience and the most relaxed/conversational.

I really do think it's hard to judge your own interview performance with all the adrenaline at the time, and who knows what the admissions committee is looking to tease out for specific candidates in the interview itself. Besides, the interview is only one piece of what we're evaluated on. All we can do is stay positive and hope for the best!

As for acceptance rate for those interviewed, I've seen 50% - 60% from historical (but pretty unreliable) data.

Mine was also weirdly not very behavioral-only two of the questions, and one of them was extremely vague. Pretty disappointed since I did a lot of STAR prep and had so many other great examples I was hoping to use. Anyways, I'm expecting a ding, but I guess I'll have to wait another two weeks to see...

I just finished my interview as well ... on Monday to be exact. Looking back, I don't think I gave particularly good answers, and I was a little freaked out by how much my interviewer was writing down. I was expecting the "has anything changed since you submitted your application" question but totally freaked out when I was asked it. Not much has changed about me since I submitted 2 months ago. Anyone else not have anything to say?

Exact same thing happened to me! I had two very minor updates based on my resume, and rambled far too long making them sound more important than they actually were. I probably would've been better off not having anything to say, to be honest.

Hey guys. I am really worried about Sloan because my interview was unusually short (less than 15 mins). Just some behavioral / STAR questions which I answered rather quickly. Has anyone had a similar experience? Is this generally a bad sign?

Hi,

I understand how brutal the wait is (I am in the same boat). But would not worry about the short duration of the interview.
I had my own interview for another school which was unusually short. Even the interviewer said in the response to my thank you note post interview. However, I got an admit.
I would not worry about the length of the interview. My MIT interview though was bad IMO. Started really well but I flunked in the middle. I know I wont get an admit but cannot wait for the 4th.
