So extremely excited to get into both of these schools after truly thinking I had no chance of getting into either....

Does anyone have any information on what's it like to be an MIT Sloan student, the culture that goes with it, and if the one-semester core is really as difficult as it's made out to be?

Congrats on your offers! I hope you get an answer from one of the current students though I have not seen anyone lately active in this forum.

My recommendation would be to connect with the current students who are on break right now - they are super nice usually and super open to let other admitted folks learn more about what it means. You are one of them now, so it should take much effort to connect. I would not pay too much attention to the admit weekend - those are staged events choreographed to be done a certain way and leave you with a certain impression. Some people leave them without having connected with anyone and others leave them in love - both of those are false feelings unfortunately though it helps to be love more so than ignored.

Good luck on your offers to these two amazing schools!

Talking to current students can be super helpful, BUT I would probably not make the decision based on culture alone.

FWIW, I spent my summer at a big tech company in the bay area and met a few MBAs from Sloan. I felt good talking to them and continue to stay connected with two of them.

In all honesty, look, they are all the same people. The cult-ish culture thing happens AFTER you go to school. It is not a self-fulfilling prophecy. International students in Ross suddenly start to say GO BLUE (Football culture or any college sports culture does not exist in India) and start talking about action-based learning. I think MIT will induce the same innovation-focused leadership etc in their students, similarly.

So my advice is, go ahead and start to get a feel of the culture but talking to a few students would still be 1-2% of the entire class. All schools have the same people - some extroverted, some introverted, some overachievers and some laid back folks. You cannot go wrong with either me, but if I had the same choices, I would pick Sloan.
