MBA Round 3 & Program Updates

It’s hard to believe that the 2016 – 2017 admissions season is nearing its end. We recently sent out MBA Round 2 decisions and we welcomed both MBAn and MFin AdMITs at our admitted student events. Our MBA R2 adMIT Weekend is also around the corner from April 20 – 22.

We do have one final upcoming application deadline for Round 3 MBA Admissions. Applications for this round must be submitted by April 10, 2017 by 3:00p.m. EST. All interviews for this round will take place on-campus, and candidates who apply during Round 3 will receive final decision notifications on or by May 17, 2017. Given the strength of the applicant pool in Round 1 and Round 2, we do anticipate a very competitive process with limited seats in Round 3. However, we do look forward to receiving your applications. Feel free to email us with any questions throughout the application process.

Holiday Greetings from the MIT Sloan School of Management Admissions Team!

I would like to begin by congratulating the recently admitted members of the MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2019. We cannot wait to meet you on campus for AdMIT Weekend on February 17 & 18, 2017.

With winter break approaching, on behalf of the entire Admissions Team, I would also like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday season. Our office will be closed from December 23 through January 2. If you have any questions during that time, you can reach us by phone and email from December 27-29 and on January 2. We will be back to our regular office hours, 9am-5pm EST, on January 3.

I would also like to mention that during the winter break, our MBA students are hosting a number of informal meet-ups with prospective students around the world. Please register for one in your area!

The Cover Letter for MIT Sloan’s MBA Application

 

20150826_Info_Fair_August_2015_PHAN_07

We have received many questions this summer about our new cover letter requirement for the MBA Application.

Similar to a cover letter for a job, our cover letter is an opportunity for you to make a case for yourself: why you should be given one of the roughly 400 seats in our MBA program? Tell us how your perspectives and experiences will contribute to our community, and why MIT Sloan is the right place for you! Format the letter as you would for a traditional job application, addressed to my colleague Rod Garcia, Senior Director of Admissions. The body of the letter itself, excluding address information and salutations, should be no more than 250 words.

Stay tuned – we will be sharing more information about our evaluation process soon. Good luck as you begin your applications, and as always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions!

We also have made some changes to our application. This year, instead of responding to an essay question,  we are asking applicants to submit a cover letter along with their resume. Your cover letter is an opportunity to introduce yourself, describe your past successes, and explain why MIT Sloan’s MBA Program is the right place for you. The optional essay remains available, and you can share additional information about yourself in any format.

We’ll be sharing more tips and information in the months to come. We hope to see you at one of our events this summer!
