That sounds really unlikely to me. Do you mind sending me a link to the Facebook group, btw?

Also, I sent you a PM. I thought it'll be nice to stay in touch through this process :)

I don't have much to share at this moment, as I haven't taken the GMAT yet. My GPA is a little below the average/median 3.76. Studying econ and poli sci in a school in Midwest. Guess it's gonna be tough for me

I'll be applying round 1 if I'm satisfied with my GMAT score and round 2 if I need to retest. I just found out about the HBS 2+2 program recently so I am frantically trying to throw together items for an application. Although I am not the best prepared I figure it couldn't hurt to apply anyway...

Best of luck to everyone!
