Cross - Cultural Essay Tips? [#permalink] New post 15 Nov 2007, 19:52
Hi folks.

I've just started my R2 HBS app and was wondering if y'all can provide any insight into the cross-cultural essay? I've got one example i'd like to use about a recent stint i spent working with field technicians, which was super different from the office work i've been doing for the past 4 years.

Any idea if this would be a good topic, or is it better that I focus on an international experience?

Hi, Jamie, I think this is an excellent example.

HBS is becoming an increasingly India-friendly place. According to India's Economic Times, HBS's class of 2008 will be the first one ever in which Indians constitute the largest bloc of non-U.S. students, at 36 (out of 900 total students per class). Traditionally, Canada has had the largest non-U.S. representation, and indeed HBS's class of 2007 includes 39 Canucks (versus 38 Indians), more than any other nationality, save Americans. The dominance India achieves with the HBS class of 2008 will be extended with the 2009 class: 38 Indians to 35 Canadians.

I think it only refers to Indian citizens. If you visit HBS there is a high % of Indians, but not all are Indian citizens.

Wow. Two of the young hotshots I work with were dinged as well. I don't even know anyone who got an interview! I wonder who HBS is letting in these days? No love for GMAT clubbers?

These guys didn't even score interviews. So they are assuming they are dinged, at this point...

Looks like all hope is lost now for those who were not invited to interview so far.

I'm filling out the online app and am curious - why do they ask for your High school name info as part of Undergraduate education? (Primary High School/Secondary School/Preparatory School)

Plus they ask for dates attended. In my case, i studied in the same school from 5th through 12th grade, I was thinking I will put the joining date as the date I joined 5th grade since there was no real distinction in my school in terms of high school/middle school etc. Or should I put in the year I joined 9th grade instead? Do they even look at this?
