Interesting question. Can you elaborate?

Sure. In past threads, I've seen people getting a big admit/congrats package with stuff that is supposed to make you excited to attend. Maybe a hat, or a coffee mug. I'm not sure if all/some/any do it anymore.

Haven't heard such thing. But it is a really great idea. I think maybe schools like MIT do not need such things to attract applicants.:) In this case, maybe we are going to send mugs with our photos to attract MIT :)

Anyone has any idea how MIT allocates scholarships?

Last year they sent us a nice AdMIT package with a handwritten card, some pamphlets, and a Sloan-branded portable battery (~4000mAh). Was a nice additional surprise a few days after the phone call :)

Currently at MIT Sloan, finals week is upon us. Today's final was for a core class called "Data, Models, and Decisions", otherwise known as DMD. If you guys choose to attend Sloan, you will most likely develop a mild form of PTSD towards this three-letter acronym.

Time really, really flies. You are a freshman one year and a senior the next in these programs. I can't believe I was in your guys' shoes just one year ago. I know you've all probably heard this a million times, but just try to relax and most of all, don't put MIT Sloan on a pedestal. I remember a year ago, I wanted to get in so badly, but now as a student it just feels like... a school. When I toured the MIT (it's MIT!) classrooms after the interview, I had these hopeful visions of sitting in class learning "to be an principled, innovated leader". But now, now I have to remind myself sometimes of how badly I wanted to be here as I start dozing off in class. "Past" me would definitely smack me in the face right now. That said, yes, I admit... of course this place is awesome and life-changing and wow these people are ridonkulously brilliant, but there are many programs that are just as great and offer a transformative experience - a lot of it is what you make of it. You can be happy anywhere if you just let yourself be.

So in sum, as much as I am excited to hopefully see some of you in February during AdMIT weekend (and maybe even be your TA for core), to those of you who end up not getting that call on Wed: it's not the end of the world, get back up, learn from this, and something even better may come your way.

Finally, here's just a random collage of pictures I took late last Friday, the calm before the finals storm:

Have a quick question. Do only the acceptances receive a phone call on Wednesday? Or do they call to reject as well?

Follow up: do all acceptances receive a phone call?

Basically, I'm trying to figure out if getting a phone call at all is an indication of anything. And if I don't get one by 4:30, should I assume I'm out?

Only acceptances get a call. Although some acceptances didn't get a call and found out through the application portal.

The anticipation is killing me :cry:

Do they put all thing dings and wait list up at once or do those filter in throughout the day?

Did you guys send thank-you note? If so what's the response (or no response)? Doing some last minute panicking here....

Sent one, no response. I am sure this is highly interviewer dependent so you shouldn't worry about it.

If it makes you feel better (because I did this), last year's thread had someone who specifically mentioned this point and didn't get a reply, and according to their profile they matriculated to Sloan.

Sent. No response.
The same for two of my buddies.


I sent it, too, and got a response. It shouldn't be an indication of anything, just the interviewer's personality.

BTW, a person from admissions told me that on the 16th they usually call all the admitted applicants, the asian first, then the european/ME/african, and then the american.

Yes and got a response.

I don't believe that response or not really makes a difference at all.

I also sent and got a response. Agree with above posts. I don't think it means much. I imagined a scenario where an interviewer who received a thank you note thinks: look at this guy. How dare he to send me a thank you note? He bombed the interview. :-D

So grateful to you. I am sure all applicants here would like to hear from you more about MIT. I heard from some alums that MIT has a reputation of being a place for introverts. :-D But they were surprised when they got there. What was your experience? And how is the new building? - especially gym. :-D

i sent a thank you note- it was heartfelt and eloquent - the equivalent of the gettysburg address .... and got a quick "great meeting you too. best of luck!" in response.

i don't think it really matters.

London sent me a nice package with a notebook, acceptance letter, guide for London and a pen.
Columbia sent me nothing.
Harvard has sent me nothing so far, but it could take some time since I live in Brazil.

I have just received the admit package from Booth. It includes the acceptance letter and a nice scarf with the school logo and colors.
