Dear MIT Sloan Community:

Honesty and integrity are critical character attributes for students at the MIT Sloan School of Management. MIT Sloan regards the hacking into the application system administered by ApplyYourself Inc. to be a very serious ethical offense. ApplyYourself has informed us that 32 applicants to MIT Sloan attempted to gain unauthorized access to a section of their on-line admission accounts. These applicants will be denied admission to MIT Sloan this year.

MIT Sloan does not post information on admissions decisions until after all admissions decisions are made and released; consequently, no one who sought unauthorized access to his or her account was able to access information about the admission decision.
