Yas2017 I don't think your visa status was a factor. They would have been explicit about he issue for international applicants

Those that were unfortunate, anyone going to Sloan if they get accepted?

I got accepted into round 2. I got the email yesterday, but I'm not going to take the position to just Sloan. I really value the engineering degree, and want that more than the MBA. I think I'll try for this year's LGO class of 2020, and if it doesn't work, then I'm done. I'm also going to try and apply through the engineering school, and not through Sloan this coming year. Switch it up to see if that improves my chances.


Hey congrats still though! That is not an easy feat to just get into Sloan, I would really take your time deciding on this before rejecting (unless maybe you literally have 0 funding and walking into ~100K+ of debt).

If the MBA side isn't your primary concern, have you considered MIT's SDM program? It's basically an little brother to LGO but you get MS in Engineering and Management from both Sloan and SOE. You can easily finance the degree over 1.5 years if you do a TA/RA, participate in start-ups, and pick your favorite business/eng classes without the fixed curricula of LGO. I'm actually still debating both at the moment as I also value the engineering side a bit more.

Hopeful2018 yea that's still awesome - congrats! Did you need to interview a second time for Sloan? It's my understanding that Sloan requires a separate interview. Either way, best of luck. If you do choose to attend, you'll probably have a bit of flexibility to fill electives with engineering courses. It sounds like you have a good relationship with adcom. Hopefully it works out next year if you apply again to LGO.

NovDjokovic, I am also have a background in EE. I started in tech consulting/data analytics and have been working in software in SF for the last couple years. I was hoping to dive deeper into machine learning, AI, data mining, etc. Good to know that someone with a somewhat similar background was admitted to the program. I talked about the same partner companies you mentioned, plus Nike and Li & Fung for analytics. If you want to do IoT, it sounds like Flex is a really cool place to be.

Hopefully everyone enjoys the program. I had been lurking for a while before posting, so thanks to everyone for the helpful info during the process.

Congrats!!! Acceptance to Sloan is still a huge accomplishment; you should be proud.

I'll have to look into that.

It was nice not getting the rejection from Sloan. Yet anyway. ;)

Hopeful2018 - you already found out you got accepted into Sloan? I got the email saying my application is still being considered for Round 2 and I would hear April 3rd. My company has already given me my contract for my post-China move and begrudgingly allowed me to wait until March 22nd to start the visa process so I could wait to hear from HBS. I'm pretty sure if HBS is a ding, I'll take the job and try my luck in a year or two instead of waiting for Sloan right now.

Sorry, it may be a different email. Last year they sent a ding a while after LGO. I didn't get this email that was sent yesterday last year. It was saying I'm considered for round 2 Sloan. I may have misspoken, sorry, not accepted to the school, just considered for round 2. Hopefully that clears up the confusion. This was the email I got.


This email is to confirm that your Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) application will now be considered as a part of our MBA Round 2 applicant pool.  
 
As we will continue to review LGO applicants interview invitations will be sent as needed.  If you were already interviewed as a part of your LGO evaluation process, an additional interview will not be necessary.  You will receive a final decision from us on April 3, 2017.
 
Thanks for your continued patience throughout this process.
 

Sincerely, 

The MIT Sloan Admissions Team

This is quite interesting to hear. I thought SDM is the older brother to LGO. You need much more experience to get in. And when you enter the job market, you're usually aiming for VP level positions in most companies. I know somebody on this forum who got LGO and SDM and might go for the latter. I haven't personally looked into SDM to be certain, but I'll dig in.

You are correct in that average WE is like 8 years and half of students already have a MS/PhD. But it is a little brother in the sense that you can complete the program faster and without the full MBA credential. Its geared towards a more specific audience of Engineering leadership

Yes, you can finish it in a lot less time than LGO, but you can also take more credits in SDM if you want. In fact, some SDMs who don't have an MBA when matriculating, end up graduating with one along with the MS in a similar time frame. LGOs are much younger usually and go for entry level leadership positions. SDMs are candidates for upper management in STEM companies. LGO though is the clear winner if you're keen on ops, while SDM is the winner if you're sort of happy with where you are and want to take a long forward stride in the direction you're already in.

Have you decided which way to go NovDjokovic?

They do. I got a FedEx email saying it was delivered today actually. Check the LGO Instagram to see what they look like. Hoping for some nice swag when I get home from work!


anyone else got the FedEx package yet? I haven't seen any signs of the acceptance package

I got it! Don't worry, I think they used economy service of FedEx so it'll take longer depending on your location.

For anyone interested in rankings, US News & World Report just moved Sloan up to #4 (tied with Stanford and Kellogg).

Production/Operations ranked #1, Information Systems ranked #1 and Supply Chain/Logistics ranked #2.

As usual, almost every engineering discipline ranked #1.

Howdy forum friends. The impossible happened and I actually got in to HBS - I've decided to go instead of waiting a year to reapply to LGO. Perhaps I'll see some of you around Cambridge!
