Does anyone know when HBS sends out their interview invites? I imagine it will be sometime before Thanksgiving, but am not sure.

Atleast that wait will be much more bearable than waiting till Jan 16th :cry:.

From what I've read/heard, if you don't get an interview invite by mid-December, you are pretty much a ..... that which we do not speak of. :-)

For the Self Reported Transcript, I found a field for Term GPA.

Where does one mention the Cumulative / Overall GPA?

collegesenior, I just saw your profile in the askaccepted.com forum. Jeez, with a profile like that, I'd be shocked to death if they didn't accept you straight away.

collegesenior, kripal's comment forced me to visit "Ask Accepted.com" section and view your profile. I must say that you have an interesting profile and age is on your side. So, even if you get dinged at H/S/W (In the worst case), I would recommend that you gain some experience and become a much stronger candidate (As Paul said in his feedback) next year (or year after that) instead of following your back-up options. Just my $0.02
