So what's the verdict? Did they pull a fast one in saying that interviews would be sent out slowly... And then send most of them on one day... AND then say there were many more???

Or were they telling the truth and the system is just blocking some interview slots?

I would LOVE to believe it is the latter but my gut is telling me to give up. How about everyone else?

yea ... no clue why they would explicitly say it'll stream out and then send out 700 invites on one day ...

I have basically given up hope

Sucks to put so much work into an app and see it go no where ...

some quick notes.. looks like they added 2 extra spots in boston. sandy mentioned as much...basically he said that they would add more spots if necessary to their boston and norcal hubs since they own property there. was also surprised to see they added spots to LA

Edit: Improved formatting - shadowsjc

I might be over interpreting, but based on some detective work, we know the invites that came out on Friday gave people a heads up that slots will open up at 12:00pm on Monday. The first post on someone who received an invite today was ~1:30pm, would be curious to see if that person had to scramble and sign up for a slot (which means bad news for the rest of us, looks like HBS pulled a fast one and sent out the majority on Friday). OR if that person also received a 1-2 day advance notice i.e. he/she gets to sign up Tuesday / Wed at noon, well that means invites come out in waves and we can still hope.

I'm going to go to bed now to prevent myself from having heart attacks. Good luck everyone.

If we see slots left go up without total slots changing tomorrow, we will know if they are holding spots closed for a reason. shadowjs, HCgirl10 and the rest of the invited Gmatters do you remember if all/most of these slots were open when you first logged in, or were they still more than 60% closed?

Thanks.

64 open slots in the US. If even 10-15 people have not signed up for their interview yet (highly likely), that means *JUST* 50 openings left. This sounds like the last minute interviews they're keeping in their backpocket for any oh shit reasons.

Ok. I guess that's IT! Goodbye Harvard... It wasn't fun while it lasted and who knew you could make me even more miserable.

I don't know what I am going to say will give you ALL hope or pull you into hell again!

My friend, current student, tells me that the REALITY is hub is not all, there are telephone and Alumni interview. For him and his friend, it is!

Let's do some easy experiments to verify.

In Asia, there are two sites for hub interview(70 seats): Shanghai(29 seats) and Mumbai! You know what?

Each year, hbs admits about 20~25 Chinese and half of them are from R1, it means about 12 people.

BUT, Shanghai hub only offers 29 seats. Around Shanghai, there are several sources like Japan, Korea, HONGKONG, Taiwan, and all mainland. I think the first choice for all of them is not Mumba but Shanghai. Then how many seats specifically for mainland Chinese? I assume at most half, 14, right?

Then what is the conclusion? if hub interview is all, it means almost every Chinese who gets interview will get offer. It doesn't make sense. Admission rate is only 50~60%. Thus, the answer is obvious, hub is not ALL.

Thus, let's wait for more!!!

I read this post. It was a reality check, not mean or nasty. I agree maybe not "helpful" to all but for those looking for a shake-up it was actually beneficial.
I think this was a case of over-compassionate moderation? :)

by all means, it was not meant to offend people, but to be realistic, we are coming up w/ all sorts of "excuses" on more possible invites when the facts are set in stone. It, is, impossible. We can be checking this forum and business week's forums nonstop this whole week, but fact is fact....no invite = dinged. HBS dream is over, but not mba dream.

the point of this site is to be helpful, and above all, to be a community of posters. posts like that are neither beneficial nor contribute to the advancement of this site as a community.

please keep all contributions positive (or at the very least, neutral).

I am very confused by this whole thing, but then again I live on a large and sparsely populated island. Tell me, are telephone and alumni interviews included? I just don't see Australia on that list anywhere... Can we hear back from anyone who is telephone/alumni interviewing?

I know people in Australia are often offered telephone interviews, so you may expect some good news. But again, don't kill yourself over this waiting game. Good luck!
