MIT Admissions Process 2015

MIT was not out of the group of schools to make significant changes in their essays. The number of essays remained from last year, and the first has not been modified. The second essay was replaced by a letter of recommendation that the candidate has to write for himself.

Dawna Levenson, director of admissions, believes that questions the recommendation letter will help the school to learn more about the candidate. This letter of recommendation is the same as the recommenders have to answer.

What school asks for this year, as published on the school website:


We are interested in learning more about you. In each of the essays, please describe in detail what you thought, felt, said, and did. Please draw upon experiences Which have occurred in the past three years.

Essay 1: The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to Develop principled, innovative leaders who Improve the world and to generate ideas que advance management practice. Discuss how you will Contribute toward advancing the mission based on examples of past work and activities. (500 words or fewer)

Essay 2: Write a professional letter of recommendation on behalf of yourself. Answer The Following questions of if you were your most recent supervisor recommending yourself for admission to the MIT Sloan MBA Program: (750 words or fewer)

  • How long and in what capacity have you known the applicant?
  • How does the applicant stand out from others in a similar capacity?
  • Please give an example of the applicant's impact on a person, group, or organization.

optional Information

The Admissions Committee invites you to share anything else you would like us to know about you, in any format. If you choose to use the multimedia format, please host the information on the website and Provide us the URL.

The first essay inspired by the school slogan. Mens et manus The school continuously seeks innovation working with both the intellectual sphere ( mens ) and practice ( manus). Storytelling and show examples is essential. MIT is interested in understanding the process more than the result, so it asks the candidate to describe what he did, felt, thought, spoke. A good formula to account for an essay like this is STAR (situation, task, action, result or impact).

The letter of recommendation that the candidate has to write about himself in a way to revive the old cover letter(cover letter) who was at MIT 's application for many years. The difference are the questions and the meta-position (speaking of himself in the third person).

The questions of the two letters of recommendation that the applicant should also ask are the same.

The Optional Information item is very important. In general, you should not waste space that the school offers so that the candidate can count more than its history and try to conquer the admissions committee. In the case of MIT, the format is fully open. The candidate is expected to express themselves with video, PPT presentations, Prezi, photos or whatever else you want. Here MIT has a crack through which you can take a peek at the candidate in a more informal way, most authentic and where the candidate can freely express what they find important.
