I got 5 views on my video essay today... this seems strange.

Well, I think a ding is gonna come sooner or later, since all the Brazilians were invited last week and Admissions would not be in Sao Paulo for 2 weeks, I guess.



I actually got an invite earlier this afternoon. It seems they are definitely still reviewing, so don't give up hope just yet.

Best of luck all.

has anyone actually completed their interview yet? care to share your experience?


I had interview last week, it was pretty short around 30 mins? It went faster than I expected, I felt nervous when all my prepared stories spoke out and fortunately AO didn't ask other questions and went back to introduce Sloan, the rest half time AO talked a lot about Sloan. No idea good or bad.

AO is nice BTW and just relax. Good Luck!

Me too lol good luck to the rest!! Hope you guys have better luck :D!

"Dear Mr. ,

The Admissions Committee of the MIT Sloan MBA program has considered your application and has regretfully concluded that we cannot offer you a place in the incoming class.

This year, approximately 4,000 candidates will compete for 350 places in the MIT Sloan Class of 2018. Since we have so few spaces to offer, the challenge is selecting not only academically and professionally qualified applicants, but also the very strongest candidates from a field of extraordinarily talented individuals.

We realize this news comes as a disappointment. However, we do hope that you will accept our best wishes for your success.

Sincerely,



Rod Garcia
Senior Director of Admissions

P.S. Unfortunately, due to the size of our staff and pool of applicants, we are unable to conduct post-evaluative interviews."

Yay! First ding.

Totally confused by this process. I did more research for this school than any other (attended 5 events, spoke with multiple students, had my resume reviewed by a student, etc.), and I felt my application was very strong. Yet I get an interview at HSW and am dinged here.

That said, I was consistently unimpressed by the admissions committee (from the lack of transparency to the quality of events to the dreaded emails). And the campus is pretty much just a building away from most of MIT. Moving forward thinking that this is a good thing!
