Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Back to Questions

When can I expect to hear from MIT Sloan again?
Updated waiting list decisions can be made at any time, up until the start of the program on July 1, 2014.

Back to Questions

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.

Back to Questions

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.

Back to Questions

What are my chances if I reapply next year?
If you choose to reapply next year, your application will be evaluated with the new pool of applicants.

Back to Questions

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.

Back to Questions

Can I get feedback on my application at this time?
Feedback is not offered to waiting list candidates at this time.

Back to Questions

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.
