Just went to register for my interview.

Here are some data for Europe. They grouped London and Paris hub offices together.
There are 39 slots for London (2/15, 28, 3/1, 2, 3, 4, 7) and 25 slots for Paris (2/28, 3/1, 2, 3, 4).
So it seems they have 64 places in total for applicants currently based in Europe, among 800 in all (???)

I got myself a slot for 3/4 in Paris. Hope it's a lucky day for me!

Will update you later how many slots are taken.

emont - there does seem to something customized for you - I had all hubs and virtually every day on campus available.

srjaidev - 45 of 63 spots in Mumbai/Shanghai are filled, of which 1/3 are in Mumbai (don't know the exact # taken in Mumbai because I'm using find/replace to count)

FallingStar - I'm local

108 of 221 Boston slots gone. 17 of 36 gone in NY. 25 of 61 gone in CA. Will do a full tally tonight but each hub page is separate.

Hi Wjjw,
Any clue about how many slots are available at Mumbai?

Hi All - long time surfer, first time blogger on GC. Some great posts in here - thanks to all for continous sharing of information.

So, quick snapshot gives a total of 445 slots assigned so far (incl 64 slots from Europe mentioned earlier). Now, given HBS interviews 800 in both R1 and R2, I'd think they've sent just about 56% of total invites and ~44% still remaining to be delivered.

Thanks Emont, for letting us know you got an invite today despite the Director's blog. Off to the Inbox!

Just wanted to caution people reading too much into the available/taken slots - For R1, more slots were actually opened as the sign-up window progressed

No I think everyone who applied to R2 got it. Though it made me feel "Hey, your ding letter is one week early"

Hey, don't give up on it so quickly.

I did follow the 'instruction' in the email and checked out the Director's Page. It says:

"Another Note About Round 2 Interviews
Date: February 07, 2011

We still have a significant number of interview invitations to send out - but we aren't sending any out today. Our plan is to send out some on Tuesday afternoon and more throughout the next week, up to February 16. Again, no hidden signals in the timing of when these go out. Really."

So let's continue to keep refreshing our mailboxes in the afternoon.

At least receiving this email now means our interview invitation will not end up in our Junk Mail in the afternoon. :p

I am not sure what to think. I am going to be 35 this year, and although I have almost 10 years of we in multiple countries, going by the age factor in HBS admissions in recent years, maybe I am not "their type"? That email did make my heart skip a beat though!

Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Dee has assured us there are more invites to come. What kind of leader gives up before the game is over!

Got it at 10:25 AM. The fact that this email went out to all applicants, probably means its not very significant, right?

HBS TO EUTHENIZE OR WL THE ENTIRE NON-INTERVIEWED POOL ON FEB 16TH, SO IF YOU GOT A BIGFOOT WAITING TO MAKE A PHONE CALL, WELL, HAVE HIM START DIALING. ONE THING THEY VERY RARELY DO IS TURN A NO INTO A YES, AND FROM THE LOOKS OF THINGS, MANY NO'S GOING OUT ON FEB. 16TH.
This is a new practice, previously the interview window ALWAYS stayed open, even for round 2, until Decision Day, so you could hope against hope you could get some late, late interview invite, and that happened in cases, usually as a result of pull of some kind. But now, on Feb 16th, you are going to be 1. Invitee, 2. WLer; 2 Dingbat. If you are following this w. more attention than you should be, you already know that HBS already informed Round 1 Wlers who has not been interviewed that they will either get invites in the Feb window (and a bunch already have) or get DINGED on Feb 16th. There will still be a category of R2 WLer w No interview.
Sounds like they are making this up as they go along, but, hey, that is what they ALWAYS DO, they are just being more transparent about it. in some Egyptian Way, responding to world and local vibes, in what seems like an ad hoc way.
Private message to Dee: Darling, stop watching CNN, there are no protesters in front of Dillon House and tho you are an autocrat, the peeps still like you. Dont rush into changes and impair your cool and parochial school spelling and typing skills.

Consultants are always good for a laugh...thanks!

Just got this e-mail...did anyone else get it? What does it mean?

February 8, 2011

Dear Totally Awesome Dude:

We've made some important changes to our process this year regarding interview invitations and decision notification that we want to make sure you're aware of as Round 2 progresses:

* We started sending out interview invitations on February 4 and will continue to do so until February 16. Interview invitations will arrive via email.
* On February 16, all candidates not invited to interview will receive either a decision indicating that "we are unable to offer you a place in the Class of 2013" or an invitation to join our waitlist.
* Decision notification for interviewwed candidates is on March 29.

For more information, we encourage you to visit the "From the Director" page on our website.

Sincerely,

Dillon House
Boston, MA 02163

My email had the following portion bolded: * On February 16, all candidates not invited to interview will receive either a decision indicating that "we are unable to offer you a place in the Class of 2013" or an invitation to join our waitlist.

Did your email have the Your application is now under review. bolded?

Yes..it was same for everyone...though I must admit I felt a sudden surge of blood to my head when I read the subject of that email

Sandy has been consistently underestimating the number of invites to come to suggest that his "superstars" have a better chance of getting in than the rest of us. By saying "only 5% to come" he wants us to think that the % invited in his pool is high.

Yeah, no invites that I know of. According to another forum member on the chat, we can expect a wave at 1700 EST today and another one tomorrow before the dings go out.

Is tomorrow the final day invites go out? or is it Wednesday? I was under the impression that invitations were going to be sent out through Wednesday 16th. Can someone clarify?
