I also strongly suspect that Sloan gives applicants more than brownie points for visiting PRIOR to submitting an application. Skip the visit if you've already applied, because that wouldn't sway interview decisions any way. As someone posted above, you should sitting in on class when you go visit for interviews.

In R1, the interviews started going out about 6 weeks after the deadline (Oct 24th was the deadline and we heard of the first invites in the beginning of December). I am not sure if the timeline is the same for R2 though.

So I had my Sloan interview today. I think I might just be the last person Sloan interviewed for R1. Well R2ers, hope this helps you -

1) Started with my resume - tell me about your current position, we discussed my role etc.
2) Tell me about a time you had to take others' interests into account.
4) Tell me about a time when you set a goal for yourself.
5) Why MBA? Why Sloan?
6) My questions to him.

Thank you! This helps!

Correct. All interviews are done by either full-time adcom staff or contract adcom staff.

I think I was the last

I had mine at Jan 18th, 4pm in San Francisco and the interviewer was getting ready to head back to Boston right after. I saw 2 names before mine at the McKinsey sign in sheet with "Sloan" in one of the columns (interview was at McKinsey office).. you must be one of them?

As far as the interview, ours became very conversational right off the bat. All the questions were products of the answers to previous questions. It started with updates to the resume, then clarification on my work (i'm an engineer), then into some behavioral type questions, same as the ones I've quoted above.

we ended with Why MBA, then questions for him.

what is the process for notification? do they call you first and then email you an update or vice versa for the deadline coming up next Tuesday?

Email then call, according to some first-years I met on campus last week.

good luck everyone over these next two nerve-racking days! Just wanted to share the announcement timing from last year (which you probably already know from stalking last year's thread)

I received a phone call from a 1Y congratulating me at around 6:30pm ET. Yes, I was suffering through the whole day refreshing my mailbox every 10 secs! The official email came out, I believe, around 7:30pm ET.

Not everyone gets phone calls (dunno why) so don't freak out.

An older classmate told me that her email came around 6pm ET the year she applied.

In other words, Sloan is notoriously late in the day...at least historically.

So nerve wracking!!! so it sounds mixed. some people get a phone call first while others get an email...

Sorry if I wasn't clear. ALL accept/dings/WL will be communicated on the promised date. Just don't have high hopes that it will happen by 5pm! That's all I was trying to say. They most likely will not spread them out between Monday/Tuesday.

They made it very clear to me after I interviewed that they would notify EVERYONE on January 29th after 5pm. You will not get a call today and you will not get a call tomorrow before 5pm. We all just have to chill until then.

I had an email sent to me saying that the online account is updated at 1/29 5pm EST. Aside from a call for accepted folks, will there also be an email sent out?
