My recommenders have not been able to submit their recommendations yet..
The deadline for the current round just got over.. Does anyone have an idea whether there is a 2-3 day margin for submitting recommendations? The website says that "It is your responsibility to ensure that all required recommendations are submitted by the deadline date for the round in which you apply."



Kaushinside - They give your recommenders about 24 hours after the deadline to get them in. All 3 of mine actually submitted late, 6 hours after the deadline, but it turned out alright.

Good luck to all those submitting for Round 2! It is crazy to think that it was less than four months back that I was in your shoes - it feels like it has been much longer!

Hi all, I have just submitted my HBS app and in a hurry, I did not notice the 12 font requirement and have put both my essays in 11 font. Can someone advise me if this will damage my chance at HBS in someway? Would really appreciate a response to cool me down. Thanks.


I wouldn't stress about it. I wonder if they can even tell the difference between 11 and 12 pt fonts. And, if they can, what can you do about it now? Nothing. So - sit tight. I think you'll be okay!

Hah! Thanks, Esdykes. I've been trying to keep myself off these forums and not even think about the wait. As you can tell, I have been fairly unsuccessful so far. Its going to be a long couple of months.

Talked to HBS this morning and they said there was a 48 hour window for recommenders to submit. Hope that helps!

You should get a confirmation email stating the round you will be considered for.

Just submitted my 2+2 application today! Typical feelings of inadequacy and apprehension now I guess. Oh and hello everyone!

I submitted my application in time but one of my recommendation writers is having problems submitting his recommendation. He says it won't let him upload a file for some reason. He put in a tech support ticket, but he still hasn't received a response. I hope they still accept his recommendation and don't push me back a round.

hi,

the tech support ticket's email usually ends up in spam. pls ask your recommendation writer to check his/her spam.
regarding delay in submission of recommendation, please read a few posts above or on the previous page of this forum.!
