SEARCH MIT MANAGEMENT
Each year we have more highly qualified applicants than we can admit into the incoming class. Being placed on the waiting list is an indication that your application was a strong one, and that we believe you would be an asset to the MIT Sloan community.
You will hear an updated decision by April 3rd even if it is only telling you that you continue to be on the waiting list. Most action will take place in June and July. We will issue all necessary updates to the waiting list via group e-mail, as well as posting updates to this page.
encourage waiting list applicants to keep us updated on their situation and
intentions. You are welcome to submit via e-mail only any additional
information you feel will be helpful to us. Please understand that due to the
high volume of correspondence, we are limited in our ability to answer
individual questions. Please refer to this page which will be updated as
all correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
do not send any correspondence to individual admissions committee members.
The waiting list remains active until the beginning of the school year.
Yes. If you are waitlisted without an interview, an interview will ultimately be required for admission to the MBA Program.
If waiting list interviews are conducted, we will schedule them by invitation only. A second interview will not be necessary for candidates whom we have already interviewed. We will contact candidates if and when spaces open up.
We will likely have between 100 - 200 active candidates on the waiting list.
We do not rank the candidates on the waiting list. All candidates who accept a spot on the waiting list will be considered for admission if and when spaces become available. Historically, we have admitted candidates as late as August.
Choosing an early or late date does not necessarily put you at an advantage since you are simply telling us not to consider your application after the date you indicate.
you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you are eligible for federal as
well as non-federal loans. Provided you have included MIT (Title IV Code 002178)
in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, you can apply
for both federal and non-federal loans no matter how late you are admitted.
you are an international student, the MIT Federal Credit Union Loan will be
available to you, no matter how late you apply.
accepted from the waiting list may not be eligible for on-campus housing, as
the deadline to sign up for the on-campus housing lottery is May.
If you choose to reapply next year, your application will be evaluated with the new pool of applicants.
We recommend you make alternate plans in case we do not go to the waiting list before your offer from another school expires. Please update us if you accept another school's offer, as the status of other candidates may be affected by your decision.
We know that the waiting list process is an uncertain and often frustrating experience for candidates. Unfortunately, we are rarely able to give definitive answers before our admission offer reply dates; Round 1 Admits have until March 1st to reply to our offer and Round 2 Admits have until May 1st to reply to our offer. We will do our best to notify candidates if there is any information we feel will be useful or if our approach to the waiting list changes. We will post any updates on this page. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
