Crap... any last minute tips for the application form? I'll be working on the final edits for my essays this week.
Looks like the interview invites have started flowing out for toher places as well... not one for me 😞 looks like a ding
Oh well... okay. As of now, I need to close the applications... they seem to be a never ending process! 😞
thestoryteller SaysWhen are they closing the R1 process? Any idea of the "kind" of people that have been accepted at Sloan?
As far as i know , only people near boston /NY area have been selected for interview , but then my knowledge is only from other forums . Also you can see some of the stats of MIt from admissions 411 website , they keep a spreadsheet which keeps track of college apps.

What the outcome of your application?
Any R2 applicants for Sloan?
No response yet from MIT . I think as per BW forums they have sent out interview calls to only people near the boston region yet , they have yet to call people outside that region.
Did anyone get any response from MIT adcom , i submitted my application on Nov 1 before R1 deadline and recieved mail from MIT about my application being complete but i have not recieved any communication from them since , no dings nor acceptance for interview . Has anyone here recieved anything from MIT ????
