FYI from the Director's blog:

Quote:
Our plan is to begin inviting candidates to interview on November 12. All the interview invitations will not be extended in a single day. A significant majority of invitations will be issued by the week of November 17. In past years, invitations have been extended up to and including the date of notification; we expect this practice to continue.

The timing of the interview decision is determined by when a particular application is reviewed in our process; there is no relationship between timing and "strength" of application. Interview invitations are not released in alphabetical order, by geographic location, or according to the date it was received. Interview invitations are sent via email and contain complete instructions for logistics.

I graduated in '03, but people my age graduated in '02. Don't forget, that all shifts over for this year, assuming they keep the same age preferences. Really shows that I am in an extremely competitive group...within an extremely competitive group. I would be interested to see what percentage of applicants fall into each bucket.

Hey guys, just in response to the above posts, my status still says "Submitted". I submitted everything (and my recommenders to) one day before the deadline. I guess the status of "Submitted" is normal ...

I graduated 2003... but am 31 y/o (my country has a mandatory 3 year military service at age 18). Wonder how they'll treat me.

By the way, hi - I'm new here. Applied R1.

I attended an info session on campus. The adcom member clearly said they think 3 years is the "sweet spot" in terms of professional experience. 40% of their class this year is 3 years or less. seems like an open statement of preference to me.

I think the reason most other schools don't see it that way is who comes and recruits. I know half the events I have been to actually have work experience requirements. The one I was at last night actually requires 4 years of prior experience (they have GM, Marketing, and Finance jobs). I know a few I have seen have 3 years, but most that have requirements (which is more companies than you would think) want at least 4 and sometimes even 5 years. Of course if you want MC or IB its not as big of an issue.

HBS goes after a younger demographic because they believe students get a higher ROI at that 3-5 year range. After that, its probably better to start looking at executive education options.....that's what an AO told me.
