I am wondering if geographical location indeed makes a difference as Sarajevo123 suggested.

Is there anyone from Europe who received invites today?


I am in the UK. Zilch.


Did you get an invite? I thought your last post indicated that you didnt and you were wondering how invites were rolling out


No invite..... yet

Guys, there is so much speculation around timing / numbers issued / composition / geographies / etc.

Let's be realistic here - our odds of receiving an invite have gone dramatically south, regardless of any speculation.

Personally, I have accepted that I have been dinged. For me, time to move on.

Yep. At this point we can hope for the best for next week, but start preparing for the worst by refining our contingency plans

I'm non-profit (US) and I received one. But I'm with everyone else in thinking that we can't predict if it was the 75/25 split this year or something else.

At least we'll find out next week for sure either way. I, for one, am getting a bottle of whiskey ready to drown my sorrows in.

Guys, everyone who has posted giving up hope could be waitisted as well, and then accepted! Or you might get in to another school and imagine "Wow, if I had gotten into HBS, I would have never XYZ". Stay positive!

Everything works out in the end. No email from Harvard at noon, but got into Columbia at 1. Funny how things happen.

Keep your head up. It's still early in the process.

I am pinning my hope on the fact that this will form a large pool and hence the invites would be sent out towards the end...
fingers crossed

Someone posted on my blog that they are in India and got the invite. Just saying, as that definitely throws the geogrpahy factor out of question.

Let's stop contemplating what happened. A more conducive discussion would be on how you are spending the next 7 days. The anxiety should be amazingly high, as not only are you waiting for HBS, Wharton starts releasing invites on the 23rd! I am going to Goa for an office offsite on Saturday and am out till Tuesday (23rd). You can count on me sitting on the beach, sipping jack and coke, looking at the sun go down and contemplating if its sunset on my apps too :) haha. Of course if a gorgeous woman trying to catch her beach ball trips over me and we fall in love, that wouldn't be so bad and would truly solace me :)

Cheers!

Hopefully, everything will work out in the end!!!

I think we all have done our best on the apps and more often than not hard work pays off...

Didnt get an invite either although after attending the HBS info session, I felt I sounded like the person they really wanted - I am sure the 200 other individuals in the room felt the same way
