hello

congrats guys :)

Can someone tell me when will be the hub interview in Paris ?

I think like 50% or more of the interviews are already released? ( because 3 people received interview already and only 2 people were interview in the first round ))


hi alaindeloin,

thanks :-D

from what i saw, the Paris interviews are open from Feb 18-21..

elhajoui - Invited for interview (Submitted on 01/01)
Steel - Invited for interview (Submitted on 01/02)
bee186 - Invited for interview (Submitted on 01/02)

So I guess there's still some hope for all of us who submitted on 01/03 :-D

just checked my status -- says "submitted" instead of "complete"

i submitted on 1/3 so i suppose that lends some support to the idea that those who have received interviews were (mostly if not entirely) those who submitted before the last day.

good to know -- thanks.

i prefer the schools that update status to "complete." harvard's entire application seems very cold to me -- definitely my least favorite of the five schools i applied to.

Ya, but they are going to get about 9,000 applicants. The experience when you visit is anything but cold, so I would just chalk it up to the massive volume of apps.

http://www.hbs.edu/about/mba.html

9000 seems high. they may be up this year due to the higher number of GMAT tests taken, but a jump of ~1500 would be well above the average increase in recent years. they did receive 10000+ for the class of 2004 though (INSANE).

i do understand the apps have to be limited in scope some how to be readable by the adcoms, but other, similar schools receive a high volume of apps but have friendlier applications. 400 word essays? please.

To Harvard's defense, it is one of the few schools that does not do "blind" interviews. So, they "may" have to review your app in greater detail before inviting you for an interview? Maybe...

Received an interview invite at 2pm ET today. There's lots of spots open on the scheduling page, so I wouldn't be concerned if you don't have an invite yet.

I read on BW that none of the Seattle slots are filled. I hope thats true. While I don't expect much it keeps the dream alive.

I didn't check seattle, but I took a quick look at Chicago and they were almost all open (they had them listed up until Feb. 29). For the on-campus interviews, they haven't even started booking past the 2nd week of Feb.

I love this forum :P - this is very helpful insider knowledge which I'm sure eases the minds of many applicants (including me) who have not received invitations.
