Everyone!

One question... not sure whether it has been previously addressed...

Does adcom's view on your linkedin profile show as private mode?

Yes, it is anonymous. So I guess nobody knows when the adcom viewed.

How do you know that's adcom? Maybe someone else can view your linkedin in private mode as well.

TBH I wish that is the case!

But I'm not active in linkedin at all.... so typically I do NOT have much profile view...

but good point! Maybe I'm just thinking too much!

FYI - I just got an additional view on my video. The analytics hasn't updated yet so I can't see where it's from, but I'm guessing it's from the AdCom since it is an unlisted link and I gave it to no one else. They had to have looked at it yesterday, which means they're still reviewing apps - don't lose hope yet!


I just got a view from MA as well. Don't know what that means... well, next week is the last week to find out then


May I ask you two's locations please? Thanks.

Should I just give up hope on Sloan if I haven't heard anything? It looks like a lot of people already have received invites...

But they said the "week of Nov 9", not "Nov 9",right?
so every day of next week might be the last day.

I'm not denying that possibility. So I see some people have updated their profile with ding... is it coming from actual ding or hopeless assumption?

Its hopeless assumption. Somebody would have posted if they got rejected. While I'll admit that I don't feel great about my chances at this point, I really don't understand the loser/apathetic mentality some people on this forum have.

The admissions committee said they would send out invites up until next week. If they were finished sending invites this week they would say so, they have no reason to prolong the ding process and make us wait.

I'd be willing to bet that they release some invites next week, probably not too many. Just have to wait until official decision or announcement is made. Be patient, hope for the best.

One question I have, does anybody know if Sloan puts people on waitlist if they are not invited to interview? Or is it Interview invite or ding?

You might get on the waitlist. Some people will be invited to interview, some people will have direct ding, some W/L with interview and some directly W/L. This direct waitlist is even more painful. As they said in one of their events, if you opt for round 1, your application will have more shelf time. You will be evaluated with R2 candidates if it is a direct W/L for getting an interview invite and the W/L with interview guys will be evaluated in R2 for final decision.

Thanks. I'll definitely take a waitlist over a ding.

Getting waitlisted would at least give me the satisfaction that I was better than ~60% of the applicants! :wink:

Confirmed that my view was from MA on Thursday, November 5th. They are still looking at apps - I would guess invites go out until middle to end of next week. In fact, they may even push that timeline out - if you look at the status page on your online app, they said that interviews would be in October and November, yet they opened up slots in early December. There may be a chance that they need additional time to review so stay positive regardless of your situation!

Congratulations to the fellow Texans who got invited!
Can you please share how many more Dallas spots are left?


Right now they are all full but others have said that more slots have been added after a city filled up before.



Thank you for the kind words. I am trying to keep a positive outlook.

So I get up this morning and see two email from MIT Sloan... One in the primary inbox and one in promotions..
So you can guess how I was feeling..

Turns out the one in the promotions was about health care webinar and the one in primary said "news about Sloan"... Turns out its just their newsletter...

Aaaarrrrggghhh
