Waitlisted here as well :( . This 50-60% admit ratio doesn't seem to have panned out, does it?

Wow I missed a lot!!

Huge congrats to the admits zoinnk, msday, cpg, etc!!!!! Absoultely amazing!!

I'm a bit surprised by the number of waitlists, its not like HBS is many peoples second choice. I guess maybe they want to take a closer look at R2? My (totally unsubstantiated) theory is that round 2 will be weaker then many schools are expecting, which could be great news for you waitlisteres.


I hope your theory is right (or do i ?) ..All my open apps are R2!

Congrags to all the admits ! Good to see so many HBS admits on this forum !

Hey Guys,

I am in R2. So how do the logistics work now. I mean would we receive an application complete email prior to interview invites being released ? When is an interview invite expected based on R1 Stats ?

Sorry to hear the news, man :( I think I will be applying again this Fall if that makes you feel any better, it was just not a good season for me either.

I don't believe HBS sends out app complete e-mails.

Based on the R1 timeframe, we are expecting interview invites to go out ~1 month after the R2 deadline, so...about two weeks from now :) Although since R2 has a higher # of applicants it may be a little later than that (pure conjecture).

No biggie! Thanks for updating the front page.

So, realistically speaking, what are the chances of converting WL into Admit? I know I will have to almost treat this as ding and proceed with Booth.

Here are some links from Sandy (the HBS "guru" on the BW forum) that may shed some light on waitlist statistics:

After a small amount of digging, it seems to me that in a good year chances are about 10% and in a bad year they are 0%.

Congratulations to all those that got in - I've mostly been a lurker, vicariously experiencing a lot of your ups and downs.

Quick question - how does Harvard invite people for interviews - via email I would assume? Or is it a phone call?

Thanks.

Looks like the WL acceptance rate could be closer to 25% or so. Hopefully this holds up.
