What happened to the comment about 480 interview spots for Boston, with only 3 available? Or am I imaging things? :shock:

I saw that too. Maybe he was worried about getting in trouble somehow? But for those of you that missed it, someone posted that he was invited to interview and when he logged in today, there were 480 interview slots in Boston alone, and all but 3 were full - lending to the conclusion that the majority of invites did go out yesterday.



It was posted by someone who applied two years ago, and hasn't been active on forums yet this year, so take that for what it's worth...

I can verify that there were a lot of slots on campus with virtually all full within an hour. Didn't count how many though.

I scheduled an interview in NYC, which seemed to have some 50-60 interview slots. Almost all were filled within the first several minutes of sign up. On campus had way more slots available than NYC. I didn't count (there were many) but it seemed at least 5x the number. California had a lot too.

Could you share the locations where it was possible to schedule an interview? Maybe that would shed light on the region / industry argument.

Has anyone who applied for a dual degree with HKS (MPP/MPA-ID) received an interview invite? Or has anyone heard of anyone else getting a call?

So it really seems most invites went out on 17th...I guess I have to give up HBS already.

Can anyone give a brief estimate of the no. of interview slots?
That might give a good idea of the no. of invites sent out.

No-one has been dinged so far - some people were invited, but more invites will go out in a week.

Not necessarily. This is the first year the essays are so small - maybe they`re going to interview more people to make up for the essays? Always a possibility given the new philosophy of focusing more on the interview.

for what it's worth, the info session I attended, the adcoms said they are interviewing the same number of people as previous years. Given that HBS interviews are all with admissions officers, they have limited capacity to interview more candidates.
