I just recieved my HBS invite today. I was a little worried because the supposed February 9th "deadline" came and went, but they are still sending out invites. Good Luck to everyone else, and hang in there.

Hey Guys,

Finished my HBS on campus Interview, and I wish I could say I felt good coming out of it, but it was definitely a daunting experience.

Like a lot of other people have reported, it was 30 minutes on the dot. Very few pleasantries, the interviewer explained the process, reiterated that if she interrupted it wasn't because she was trying to be rude, and that she had read my file.

Most of the questions were very specific to my application - we jumped around a lot. She threw random questions at me that weren't specific such as:

Why my undergrad institution
What book i've recently read
What I think of the current financial markets

All in all, it reminded me of an I-bank interview - keeping me off balance and asking digging questions. The questions I had prepared, didn't come up at all (resources: Montauk, clearadmit.com, etc.), and I definitely felt as if I fumbled through a few of the answers.

The best advice I can give, is to really take a second before answering questions, it definitely would have made my thoughts that much clearer.

Good Luck to Everyone

Hey everyone,

I had my on-campus interview a couple weeks back. Overall, a lot of atypical questions, such as

1) how do you think your undergrad institution markets itself
2) what would you do differently to market it (i found these kinda odd since i never really indicated an interest for marketing)
3) what's your favorite book
4) something people are surprised to know about you

they left out a lot of things like
1) why harvard? 2) why mba?


overall, my interview was real pleasant and despite a couple things i wish i could've taken back, i really don't have many complaints.... just a little more than 3 weeks left!

Any of my fellow waitlisters get that email this afternoon to confirm your waitlist status? Kinda weird.

Yeah, I did. It seems like they are making final decisions for many WLers on April 2nd. The last thing I want is to stay on the list after that day...

Agreed.

It seems like they sent this update to everyone (haven't seen anyone say they didn't get it), which is in contrast to last year. On last year's HBS WL thread on BW only 3-4 people reported getting this email a bit before the R2 notification date. All of them got in. If only we all could be so lucky! :lol: :cry:

That's exactly what I was hoping for. I wished the email meant I was pretty much in, but everyone seemed to get the email. Having said that, I am pretty much in love with Booth. It would be emotionally difficult for me to choose any school over Booth.

A useful "Something for Everyone" blog entry:

http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/blog.html

Something for Everyone!
Date: March 24, 2009
This is the time of year when we have all three rounds in play, so here is some news for everyone:

Round One Waitlist - We will be extending offers of admission to about 40 round one waitlisters shortly after April 2. We will continue to maintain a waitlist and Eileen Chang will send out an update in early April.

Round Two Notification - April 2 is the notification date. All decisions will be released online - you will receive an email instructing you to check your status. We won't be making any congratulatory phone calls in advance of April 2!

Round Three Interview Invitations - Many, but not all, will go out on April 3.

I dont like how they phrased it "shortly after." That could mean a lot of thing. They are so crafty. I was also hoping that there would be more than 40 admits off the waitlist since I was wishful that there were more WLers this year than the past...

Yeah it seems like they've changed their tune a bit on the timing. I think 2 different communications said on April 2nd, but I'm not sure.

I was hoping for more than 40 as well, which I believe is the same number as last year. Estimates on BusinessWeek say 200-250 on the waitlist, so at best we have a 20% chance.

Good luck!
