What does being on the waiting list mean?
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.
What are the next steps for waiting list candidates?
The MFin Admissions Committee has all of the information it needs to evaluate your application. In an effort to maintain equity in this process, we will not accept additional materials for inclusion in your application at this time.
Please do not send any correspondence to individual admissions committee members.
Can I schedule a waiting list interview?
We do not yet know if we will hold additional interviews. 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.
I have to send my deposit to another school and I haven't heard from you yet.
You should definitely 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.
Is there anything else that I should know?
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 date in April. 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.
