Mine was a string of questions without many follow-up Qs, and then why MBA why Sloan. I ended up having over 10min to ask him questions about MIT and Sloan. We ended up chatting about restaurants in New York. The whole interview lasted perhaps 30-40min. I walked out feeling very strange about the interview - i normally do very well in interviews but mine didn't give me that warm and fuzzy feeling.

Only 43% of the people have updated their status it seems, PLEASE try to update your status to keep the information current.

Surprised that only 23% of the applicants got interviewed, maybe MIT decided to start their Christmas break early lol

I think everyone was already interviewed. Don't think they will keep it for so long.

Hi guys,
1st round applicant-interviewee here.
I'm kinda baffled by the fact that according to YouTube Analytics, my optional was not viewed by MIT's AdCom.
Is that even logical? Did anyone else encounter something like this?
:cry:
Thank you in advance!

I check my video right away, I had 7views before my interview and now still 7! they will make decision without watching our videos? How can we check the viewer's location in Youtube?
Thanks!

I think they viewed it first before making the decision to invite you to interview... so no point to view it again now right?

I'm guessing for final decision post-interview, they probably won't view the video unless they're really on the fence. I noticed my video was viewed twice the day before my interview and once on the day of the interview from MA, likely all hits from my interviewer?

Hey there my friend,
You can login into your YouTube account and then press My channel - Videos - click on your MIT video.
Right under the video you'll have an "Analytics" button.
Press on it and then, in the Overview page that will open up you'll have a section of "Top Geographies" towards the bottom of the page.
Press on it and then you'll see a distribution of the geographies from which your video was watched + average view duration and percentage.


Thanks a lot! IAmHope :)
No AO has watched my video before or after my interview.
Hmmmm

The application deadline for our Master of Finance (MFin) Program is on January 4th, just a month away. To help you prepare, MIT Sloan Admissions is hosting an Application Tips Webinar on December 10th, from 10-11am EST, so be sure to register here! Detailed application instructions are available online, as are descriptions of our 12-month and 18-month MFin Program options.

We understand that applicants spend a considerable amount of time pulling together a completed application. During the final stages of preparing your application, thinking clearly and focusing your efforts on all the elements with care can make a big difference. As you are assembling your application materials, we encourage you consider the Optional Question. This section of the application is an opportunity to be creative and distinguish yourself from other applicants. Whether it’s a YouTube video, an essay, or a powerpoint deck, try to keep it short and succinct. If you use a multimedia format, you must host the information on an active website and provide us with the link.

We look forward to receiving your application and learning more about you!

Does anyone know if you are notified of scholarships during the acceptance call or is it some other way?

Do acceptance calls go out the day before official decision date of 12/16 (like Booth) or only on the day off?

Last year calls came on decision day, starting Boston morning.

Do they call randomly or based on the region, for example, Asia first, Europe, then US? Since Boston morning is like... night in Asia and dawn in West Coast..

So close ... But so far ...

Any idea how long it takes all the notifications to go out? Is it all available online at once or do they wait until they called most people?

Do all the dings go out at once or is it in waves throughout the day?

I heard from an acquaintance that all decisions will be released on 16h. However, not everyone received a call last year. Some people learned through the account.
