As a Sloan alumna I’ll just try to give you a sense of where I think the Sloan Adcom is coming from.

I like to tell the story of my own Sloan interview. The conversation was going really well. It felt like more of an exchange than the rapid fire interrogation I’d anticipated. At some point though, I apologetically told the Adcom member that I wasn’t really sure what I would do after I graduated. As soon as I’d said it I regretted it, thinking this would be detrimental to my candidacy. I was surprised when he started to laugh and told me that he wouldn’t believe me even if I told him what I wanted to do. Then he said something along the lines of ‘we know people are still figuring things out at business school’. Did he say that just to make me feel better? I don’t think so. Had I said the same thing during an HBS interview, I doubt it would have gone over quite so well. So why does Sloan take a different stance on post-MBA career goals and what does that say about what they’re really looking for in applicants?
