MIT MFin Interview invite?

I'm from Asia, and so I thought I missed the invitation since the first week of February has passed and I haven't received any email (especially since the Singapore interviews started during the last week of January). To my surprise, I got an interview invitation earlier this week, but asking me to go to Cambridge and not to an Asian location.

Hope they are providing some sort of stipend for travel. I guess your profile was better than in the Americas and that they stopped interviewing in Asia...

Well done

Thanks londonguy. However, I expressed to them that it would be difficult to secure a visa in less than a month, but I was willing to fly in somewhere nearer. They replied to me and immediately booked me for a skype interview instead. I was hoping for an in person interview because it's naturally more advantageous for an applicant (in my view), but I will have to make do.

I'm wishing the rest all the best -- there's still a few hours to go. A week ago, I was bearish about my chances until I was surprised by the invitation, so don't lose hope!

Don't worry about Skype vs in person... Expectations will be lower over Skype, so it might actually be to your benefit
 
Yep, I'm ever so slightly disappointed with the rejection letter. Expected a little more empathy from MIT in particular, but I understand they must be operating under their own constraints too.
