Update for MBA Round 2 Applicants

The Admissions Team has been busy hosting AdMIT events, receptions, and webinars for our Round 1 AdMITs around the globe.  AdMIT events offer admitted applicants the chance to meet with Admissions representatives, current students and alumni to learn more now that they have been accepted to our program. Round 1 AdMITs – we are excited to meet you!

If you are an MBA Round 2 applicant – congratulations on submitting your application! You might be wondering . .  .

What does that mean exactly?

Good question! A committee of professional readers review your application to evaluate your demonstrated successes and personal attributes. They will read your entire application, including your optional information (which, by the way, are proving to be amazing so far!).  From there, the committee will evaluate each candidate and a subset of applicants will be invited to interview.

When can you let me know if I am being invited to interview?

Interview invitations will go out mid-February and continue throughout March. If you do receive an invitation, there will be specific instructions included so you know what to expect and how to prepare. Through the application review process and interview stage, our goal remains to get to know each and every applicant better. I have been reading applications for over 7 years now, and I have to tell you, it doesn’t get old. However, it does take some time to do a comprehensive review.  We appreciate your patience and of course, if you have any questions during this time, you are always welcome to email us at mbaadmissions@sloan.mit.edu.

How do I ace the interview?

If you would like to prepare for the next stage of the evaluations process, refer to our previous post on Interview Tips and watch Associate Director Jen Barba explain what to expect for your interview. Since the interview is behavioral based, providing past examples of what you thought, felt or did in a specific situation will have the most impact.
