So you wouldn't believe what happened with me...

For the last 14 days my email has not been working, some problem with my hosting provider.

I have changed all my Application email to my Gmail one. I checked my application online and it just says submitted.

All those who have been interviewed, does it say anything on your application portal ?

I am an intl candidate so hoping nothing has gone out.

Haven't been interviewed, but I have been invited and there is no change on my application page. I'd contact admissions to check.

Mine was viewed once on Friday and again today but have no idea whether it was adcom or not. I am an international candidate too, from the UK.

Nope, I didn't. I'm now worried that maybe I should've done that )

I had 2 views on my optional essay on 8th and 14th, hopefully at least one of them is from the folks at MIT.
No view on linkedin though

Just curious what video hosting site do you guys use? YouTube?
Personally I used Vimeo for Sloan and IMO it's more secure aka only person who has link will see it. The downside is Vimeo will 'suggest' viewer to watch other videos....so if I host another school's essay, it will be listed as suggestion LOL
I ended up have to host another video for Stern on YouTube, however, even it's unlisted, I still get views (from CA) somehow...

Was the LinkedIn view in private mode? I received a view today as well - still waiting on an adcom view of my youtube video, but the analytics on it takes about 48 hours to update so I'm hoping they viewed it today along with my LinkedIn page.

Mine was an essay hosted on onedrive.
And the unsolicited view on your video could be from a search engine's web crawler

Based on my own experience with graduate recruitment (and from what I've read), my guess is that individual committee members get to review apps at their own leisure and pace (e.g. over the weekend at their local cafe / home / etc.), and when then they sit down together as a group to align on interview invites to ensure there is some loose sense of balance/calibration.
