Eventually, I think it comes down to presenting yourself in the best light possible. Not everyone who applies to HBS (or is admitted) has a stellar background. Having a strong GPA and GMAT is always good. As for your experiences are concerned, I think it's more about trying to understand which ones you want to talk about and what it will tell the adcom about you. :)

You definitely should apply. Cliched as it is, if you don't, the chance you getting in is zero.

(Take what I'm saying with a grain of salt, though. I'm an applicant myself)

Haha, anything I tell you is pretty invalidated. I'd recommend spending a lot of time on the HBS website and trying to see if the school is a good fit for you and if you're a good fit for the school. They value leadership and community engagement so while your lack of extra curricular activities might seem like a big issue you can try to bring out other facets of your personality that will assuage what you might not have had the opportunity to pursue.

So what time on Friday will we find out? I am in SEA, so there is a 12 hour time difference with Boston.

Not sure, actually. I am thinking it will be noon EST like it usually is but I could be wrong. I'm in South Asia at the moment, actually. And as for the other threads, I looked it up and couldn't find any. If you do, let me know!

I guess people are just less excited about 2+2 this year then! I have visited a couple of similar threads for years before, and there were many more active participants.

I think the only reason is most of the people are delaying their application to round 1 or may be even a later round.

Uh .... visiting home? :D

I was also in Africa a month ago. I'll be back in the US in a week though. Sigh. School. Senior Year.

This could be true. I mean, even here, there's like four of us who have applied to this round and there's a couple more who are planning to apply later. I could also secretly hope that less people applied this year and they take in the same number of students :P

Don't we all wish that? :lol: But I highly doubt that'll be the case. If anything, many more people will realize in August or September or even December, "hey, there's something called HBS 2+2!!!" :x

Not sure that's the case, though. Until last year, 2+2 was open only in the summer round. If anything, people will be forced by habit to think that it's the case this year as well. Dee has been stressing in all her blog posts that the program has more rounds now. :)

whiplash, seems to me that you have been a hbs lurker for a while now! I guess I am in the same position as you are in. I will be applying to the program in couple of years. I am 19 at the moment.
