Hi all, first time posting here, although I've been reading forum posts for a while. Just got an email today for HBS interview...TBH I thought I had no chance given how competitive the school is. Anyone who is going for an interview or has already had an interview, would you mind sharing your thoughts/strategies or pointing to a couple of useful resources? Really appreciate any insight you guys have...

From her blog (http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/blog.html):

Quote:
Shortly afterward, I'll update you here as to how many invitations have been issued and how many we expect will go out between February 10 and the April 2 notification date.


Also sset09 -- they will not send you a ding I believe until the official release date, April 2nd.

Timestamp was right around 12:05pm EST, and my understanding is that yes, they were all sent out in one batch (according to someone on the BW forums who called the admissions office and confirmed the 750 invites have been sent). Either way I would stay tuned to Dee's blog for an update sometime today or tomorrow hopefully.

From the R1 Interview post on the HBS Director's Blog:

Round One Interview Invitations
Date: November 11, 2008

Today we sent out about 750 invitations to interview. I think we will ultimately send around 850 by the notification date, January 21.

I can't predict when this additional 100 invitations will go out nor to whom. It is possible that candidates invited in the next few weeks will not have extensive options to interview in hub cities; we will make every effort to work with them to schedule an interview which is convenient.

The Admissions Board continues to review written applications and discuss cases until the January notification date.

I also anticipate that around 100 Round One candidates who have not been interviewed will be invited to accept a place on the wait list in January. As their cases are further considered, they may be invited to interview.

We are trying to be as transparent as possible about this anxiety-producing process. I hope I am clear in my continued message that this is a "selection" process designed to bring a talented and diverse mix of students into the classroom. There are no hard and fast rules and there are many more qualified candidates than we have capacity to admit.

from Dee's blog

Hello to Round Two Applicants

Date: February 09, 2009
Today we are sending emails to about 750 applicants inviting them to interview. Detailed information will be included in the email. I think there will be between 50 and 100 additional invitations sent between now and April 2. These will be sent out as files are reviewed - not on a designated day or days.

As I've said before, I know that the business school application experience is anxiety-producing. We are trying hard to minimize anxiety and stress while preserving a time-intensive selection process in which the applications you invested so much in are carefully reviewed by multiple members of the Admissions Board.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


i didnt get the email.. little hope now.. :(
