I loved the "How to dunk" video.

I am sure this year, adcom members wont be bored with looking at the apps. Because of the open-ended question, the videos and presentations are so different and varied.

There is even a video of card magic with CallMeMaybe song.

I uploaded a simple powerpoint and submitted my application. Regretting it after watching the amazing videos on you tube. The application is still open, do you think I may be able to go in and change it to a video?

I love the card magic video too. I thought I put something interesting as well. But right after I submit my application, I realized that there was a one minute limit (after viewing a few youtube videos) . Mine is 4 minute. Hope it won't hurt me. Any ideas?

I enjoyed the card tricks video as well. Great job, and best of luck to everyone!

I just broadly searched "MIT Sloan application" and filtered the search results to postings over the past week. That should get you most of the supplemental pieces of the application that have been posted.

great work on the magic. this is second to the one and only gob bluth.

I saw that video of the girl dancing to with all her diff teams - content was silly, but i laughed.

Seen some intimidating profiles... through these videos

mine is a slideshow as well, but i put a unique twist on it...at least i think...we'll see what happens!

best of luck

Loved it. best one that I've seen out of the ones I've watched.

To me, the people who did powerpoint presentations might have taken a bit of a risk, especially if their presentations were only four slides. i'd worry that the Sloan Admissions committee will think that those people recycled a Booth essay (even if they didn't apply to Booth--and the MIT form doesn't ask what other schools you applied to.)

I think slide presentation will not pose any risk. MIT Sloan is looking for contents in the slideshow. What they want see is if you are more than just a score and GPA on paper or not. So people who did slide presentation, please don't worry.

I saw a few presentations on slideshare and they looked really solid. Honestly I think they were on average much more effective than the videos.
