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.


Looking at past years it seems like calls start not later than mid-day on the 16th.

Does anyone have any idea what time decisions are usually up on the portal? Will be working in Europe at an all day client session and I feel like the suspense will be killing me.

Since Sloan sends out invite gradually, I assume they review and sends out interview invite when the applicant passed the threshold. Does that mean they make final decision first come first serve as well? Or do they finish all the interviews then decide?

Sloan releases all invites on the same day (just not all at once). From what I understand they evaluate the class holistically so decisions are not first in first out.

What I want to know is how late in the day do dings come out on the portal.

I guess they are starting to select the class now. They probably send this to everyone who interviewed.

I'm sure they've mostly decided by now. But yes, I bet this was sent to all interviewees!

And Sloan of course continues the tradition of heart stopping email headers.

I bet they are having a good time with it.

The comment about updating your address makes me think that they'll be calling regions based on time zone, so they want to know where you are.

I'm pretty sure it's because they do all merit scholarships through mailed letters.

Hi all,

Today I received a mail from MIT-Fudan IMBA program.
Does this mean that I got rejected from MIT.
In my application I had checked the box "Occasionally, we share application information of candidates we cannot admit to MIT sloan MBA program with other MIT programs and international partner universities... ". I agreed for this information sharing.
So, I guess it is game over for me.

If this is true, then that would be a major misstep to unintentionally release a decision signal like this.

It would be interesting to hear if others ticked this box but did not receive the email? I am pretty sure I did not tick this box.

i have no idea, and it serves no good to speculate. but please do keep us posted on your results on wednesday, would be interesting to hear if there was a correlation.

i also checked the box but have not received promotional material of another program.

I also have an account on QS mba tour. It is normal for me to receive such promotional mails. Receiving one from MIT`s partner school is little unnerving.

I checked the box as well and didn't get anything. It is possible you were on this mailing list through your account with QS mba tour and that it isn't relevant to your application status.

Any one else losing a significant amount of sleep in anticipation of wednesday's verdict? ?

Very irrelevant but has anyone gotten any "swag" from any schools they've been admitted to? Coffee mugs, stickers, etc?
