HBS offers need-based aid almost exclusively and the few other merit-based fellowships are not awarded along with admission.


Right - and I dont know that HBS offers 100% scholarships. Has anyone heard of this? Watching the financial aid webinar, it sounds like they expect all aid applicants to take out a minimum loan amount before they will pay anything out.

Regardless, it would not have swayed my decision.

That sounds right to me - I think they will pick up about ~50% of it at most.

Therefore i would like to ask you what do you think would be the deadline for taking gmat, in order to be in time for HBS MBA 3rd round application?
Thanks in advance!

Have people received physical offer letters? Got mine today - love the fact that its just a letter and a binder with a notepad! Nothing fancy...awesome!


Ah! I'm jealous!! I have been out of town since ~ a week after the decisions came out. I finally head back home today and I'm looking forward to reading the real letter!

I'm going to be blunt here - unless you have already finished the rest of your application and you are extremely confident your will nail it in the first go, I do not think this is enough time. R3 is a tough round as it is, and you are not leaving yourself much room for last-minute corrections. I guess you could always give it a go and just reapply next year if things don't pan out, right? At least you would have the GMAT out of the way early...

Out of curiosity, was anyone under age of 28 accepted thus far?

Hi all - question for those accepted in Round 1: when is the decision/deposit due date required for HBS? I'm a waitlist for Round 1 and want to see how this date compares to the Round 2 decision date. Thanks.

I just realized I never got the amazing call from Dee - only the call from my interviewer. I wonder what the selection criteria is there....

This thread has been awfully quiet with R2 deadlines so close. Anyone out there applying this round to HBS?

I'd blame it on the holidays. I certainly am applying in R2! :-D

Edit: And now I have! Good luck to everyone else!

Hi guys,

I only did my GMAT a week ago and haven't received my AWA and integrated reasoning scores yet.
As an international student, i'm pretty desperate to make sure my submission is in R2.

When i was keying in my unofficial scores on the HBS MBA website, they kept prompting me for numerical values (i couldn't put NA) for the AWA and integrated reasoning category.
How can i still submit in R2 without having these scores?

With the deadline so close, does anybody have any advice?

Might be worth an email/call to admissions with the deadline being so close. You might also try using a different browser to input this section of your app.

On the login page of the application, you are asked to use the current date to signify ongoing activities, however in the app it says current employment end date should be left blank. which should we follow?

Also my undergrad grades were reported on a semester and cumulative basis only, not yearly. So i don't have yearly grades on my transcript. Should i calculate yearly averages or just leave the fields blank?

When I am did my app, I just calculated it on my own. Not sure if that is legitimate.

I calculated my own as well for precisely the same reason.

I just saw a new FAQ post from Dee on the HBS website. She said to use 0.0 if you do not have the official scores yet.

Good luck!


Great thanks for sharing Schroedes! Looks like i'll just key in 0.0 for now for both my AWA and integrated reasoning scores.
Best of luck everyone for your application!

Does HBS need an official score report sent to them with the application?

Hi,

I have been looking at the HBS application form, and was wondering what the point of the separate "Employment" and "Extracurricular Activities" sections was, especially when the resume covers all the relevant information? These sections also appear to be non-required/optional. Is it okay to leave these out (without risking a rejection)? Thanks.
