Folks,
I applied from India towards end of Round1 - got an interview invite on Dec 31st. Scheduled for 16th Jan - Looks like they have 3-4 slots daily running for 5 days, 13th-17th Jan. And most of them filled (4 still free) - probably indicates about 10-15 have invites so far... Or they could just have fewer slots on some days. Would be nice if we get an idea of how many.

All the best to all who are in the process!

Cheers,
Ram

This post was
BOOKMARKED
Ah, of course! The Obligatory background:
15 years experience overall - started in 1998 as a Chemical engineer (IIT Madras-1998). Switched to software industry after an MBA (IIM Calcutta-2001).
14 yrs of fairly global software delivery and consulting experience - India, US, UK, Australia. Currently delivery director for Oracle.
Self-sponsored. Plan to startup after a short break.

Interview:
Its a bit of a misnomer to call it that. It was a rather open, and open-ended discussion. The Asst. Director of admissions was very involved with the individual and the process - gave ample information. Was very interested to understand both my career progression and future goals - 15 mins. Then, a 30 min discussion on the various aspects of the Fellows program, where I had a few open questions on how it might fit with my goals. Finally, last 10 min, she was interested to find out my overall "preparedness" - how the family will fare during the year, how I will manage the break and what expectations I had from Sloan.

So, overall very informative and definitely pleasant interview - helped me make mind up in a lot of ways.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Ram

Background - 14.5 years of experience in Banking and Financial Services. Primarily, I have worked in the Emerging markets - Asia and Africa -with short term assignments in the US.

The interview was conversational, and relaxed. The first 15 minutes were spent discussing my essays - my short term and long term goals- and how does the program fit with my career plans. The next 30-35 minutes were spent discussing the banking and financial services scenario in India, dealing with cultural diversity considering the program has an international cohort, ethical dilemmas facing leaders today. The next 10 minutes were spent on how would I work in a team which has individuals from 5 different nationalities, and how can each member add value to the group. Finally, the interviewer was interested in knowing my expectations from the Sloan program and how the family would fare during the year. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed the interview.
Hope, the details are helpful.

Reminder to all admitted

I've created a LinkedIn group for the ones admitted so we can start networking and knowing each other before april orientation.

Just search Groups with the keywords "MIT Sloan Fellows Class of 2016" (couldn't post the link here - sorry) or send me a msg and I will reply with the link.

best regards and good luck to the rest being interviewed.

Thanks TG - I hope you are right :-). And wish you all the best as well - how has it been for you so far?

Btw, just received a communication from Adcom saying that there are delays in processing the interviews. Earlier they had mentioned that the results are likely to be known by Jan end. Now (I think this was specifically addressed to the applicants from various parts of Asia) the R1 process for those who were interviewed in Jan, will likely conclude by Feb 10th. My initial reaction was that this is a Waitlist - but appears, many have received this mail. Will keep posted of any further developments.

Update:

Got a mail from AdCom today. Am on waitlist - given that am an international candidate, not sure if this stands much chance of a positive conversion. So long folks... and all the best to those admitted.

I suppose many should be getting your mails any time now. Do update the group.

Cheers
Ram

Waitlisted too! Shit! I honestly cannot believe it!
Top 5 US college gradaute; college varsity; 10 years work experience, of which 5 years as a manager for Deloitte Consulting, 5 years running my own company which I just sold for 20 million dollars. Yes that's my net worth. I'm an angel investor now. I am literally the most successful and competitive person I know at my age. I am very surprised!

I am sorry if I sound like a jackass. I'm usually modest. I'm sure all of you guys waitlisted excel at what you do. I just wonder, for the lucky ones who were admitted, is your net worth in billions?
