Hello! Has anyone applying to MIT IDM heard something back already? Good luck to everybody!

Thanks for starting this thread! I haven't heard back but I applied to the "Business" stream. How about you?

Thanks for starting this thread! I heard that they will *start* sending out interview invites from the end of this month (so, tomorrow onwards?). Not sure how much the invites will be spread out but based on previous year threads on this site, it seems like they go out on a rolling basis for a few weeks.

Hey, I've applied for the MIT IDM fall 2020 in business category as well. They started reviewing the applications post mid February. I guess we could expect the interviews by mid march I guess. I hope we keep each other posted on the interview calls.

I emailed them today and they told me they are still in process of reviewing applications, so will probably be another 1-2 weeks?

I have decided to do some spring skiing to hopefully get rid of my anxiety in waiting.

I wish there was enough snow in India XD

One day It will be given the current trend of climate change. I am dreaming of SCUBA diving in Vail, Colorado one day.

Nothing yet. It's kinda interesting to see empty results survey as of Mar 17, 2020. Based on previous years' data people usually add interviews quickly after they receive them. I guess the COVID-19 is causing the delay?

Yeah nothing yet here either. I assume that if someone on this thread had gotten an interview call they would have added that here, so probably they are still reviewing applications....

I wonder if they delay final decisions too - would it be enough time for international students to get their visas etc... or actually in this new Corona world - most embassies are not even processing visas. what would that mean for all of us?

Since the whole nation is currently WFH (working from home), I am assuming the process will be slightly delayed but probably not too much thanks to Zoom, Slack, Google meet etc. The visa concern you brought is valid. It takes 1-2 months for an international student to schedule and interview for an F-1 visa. The time frame can easily stretch to 3-4 months due to lack of interview slot at a busy consular/embassy, and administrative processing (i.e. "check") by the department of state. Considering there is a portion of F-1 international students in every cohort, I think Matt will keep the admission criteria unchanged, and expand the wait list in case candidates can't make their ways to the US. It means more hope for some candidates, and more waiting for some candidates. Some local candidates in the wait list may get notification even in the summer. Just my 2 cents.
