Any R2 applicants have their optional presentation/video viewed yet?

Mine was viewed for the first time today.
Just 15 mins before; from Needham, USA !
16.2 miles away from Sloan. (courtesy : google maps)

Nice. Was beginning to wonder if the optional materials had any appreciable relevance to the app in general. Did you do a video or ppt?

I did a PPT (infact shamelessly uploaded my Booth PPT ). It was four slides - but was viewed for a good 14 min 34 sec. So whoever it was, he/she did look at it seriously.

Nice! Seems like a positive development. What online media tool did you use? SlideShare? Reason why I ask is b/c I used slideshare but don't know how to find that type of detailed metric... Good luck!

You should be able to see how many times your ppt was viewed and what location it was viewed from. Hope this helps!

You're not alone. Mine has yet to be viewed... Oh well, I'm sure they'd get to it.

Has everyone's optional material already been seen (those that can check)? Do you think MIT will view everyone's regardless of the rest of their app? Getting a little worried that mine has not yet been looked at and interviews are about to begin!

Mine was viewed Tuesday. Some others had been viewed as early as early last week. Hoping its in no way an indicator of candidacy. I'm sure they will get to yours.

So, I saw that I'm not the only goof out there and someone else didn't realize that they could have put a link to a video or slideshow (makes me feel a little better.) Anyways, did anyone out there get an interview without doing a video or link and just writing an essay to address GPA and things like that?

Let me know. I feel like I completely shot myself in the foot and have no chance left... so frustrating. I can handle rejections when I try my best but feeling like I'll get rejected cause I wasn't my usual meticulously anal self... ugh

Hello friend,

I think there was a round one applicant in this thread who said he did not do the optional information and got admitted

If there are any veterans in this forum, Sloan will be having a prospective students day for veterans on April 17th (Easter is on Sunday April 20th, Patriots Day is April 21st). Current and former Sloanie vets/civilians and admissions representatives will be available for you to talk to. There will also be a campus tour and a class visit. We will also have a cocktail hour later in the afternoon with plenty of first and second year Sloanie Vets. Hard times to follow, PM me if you are interested or have questions.

Last I heard, it's supposed to start in mid-February. So that's another week or two.

Mine was viewed in mid-January. Hopeful for a positive response in the next 2 weeks.
