Round I interviews are in full swing. A few members of the Admissions team, myself included, are touring the globe meeting with amazing candidates. I was in Mumbai earlier this week, currently finishing up in Tel Aviv, and will be in London, Madrid, and Paris next week.
A large percentage of candidates choose to come to the MIT Sloan campus in Cambridge to interview. A great benefit of interviewing on campus is that you have the opportunity to have lunch with current MIT Sloan Students. They have been coming out in droves to meet interviewees! The other day, the students surprised us and posted their favorite things about MIT Sloan on the whiteboard in the lunch room. It made me proud to see this- even from afar! For those of you who cannot interview on campus or come to visit this fall, I wanted to share a glimpse of the whiteboards with you:
Additionally, John Mahler, one of our student bloggers wrote a fantastic article on how to ace the interview. It is definitely worth reading.
Best of luck to those of you interviewing- and, to quote John Mahler, remember to BE YOURSELF!
