don't know whether it is false but a majority of the people from two case studies all said they visited before interviewing

It seems like eternity since I hit submit on my HBS application, but if I remember correctly, there isn't even a question on "Why HBS?". You have the 500 character box on how an MBA will help you achieve the career goals from the drop down box, but that's it. Good luck trying to fit anything into that specific to why HBS from a visit.

My point is - visiting beforehand is great, but unlike other schools, I don't think it will help your essays or content of your application very much.
If you go for an interview, I would definitely suggest a class visit or something before the interview so that you have content to speak to, but this could be the day before of even the morning before the interview.

Never visited until the on campus interview. I think Stanford/HBS/Wharton don't care if you visit because they know you want to come. Other schools may add value to a visit because their yields are closer to 50%, and they don't want to just be back up plans.

Carry the two.. yes, 25 hours indeed! Is anyone else checking their online app to see if, perhaps, just maybe, there is some way to deduce the results prior to deadline?? I'm probably just going crazy at this point...

I did over 60 mock interviews for HBS round 1, and many of those kids had not visited--it is really not a factor.
--good luck to all on 12/12

Applying to round 2, i visited HBS november 29th. Anyone from round 1 get an interview and did not visit HBS? and did anyone from R1 who did visit HBS get an interview ?

Most of the people i talked to at HBS said they visited before they apply. Even though HBS, states you don't need to come, I really think it was such an important component to talk about the school's unique qualities.


I did not visit HBS before applying and received an interview. I went to the school for my interview.

Well... so this is it everyone. The last night before the start of a brand new era (I'm probably being way too overdramatic but pls humor me).

I'm already preparing myself for the worst and decided to do some research on famous HBS rejects... get this - warren buffett was rejected from hbs, as was dean nohria! So, if rejected, I'm in great company!

Good night and good luck everyone... i truly wish you all the best and hope i'll run into all of you as classmates in allston next year. Godspeed to you all.
