I am not sure that I have heard of adcoms looking at multiple scores as negative. There are definitely plenty of examples of people getting in with multiple scores (even lower second scores). Do you have a reference to where you have read it? How do you know this information?

I am not arguing that anyone should retake for no reason but I am curious about the information how you deducted that Ad Coms will view multiple scores as a negative. I guess this assumes that they actually review score reports instead of having an admin verify that the self-reported scores match the reported scores.

I think it was more of the fact that he already had a 730 and was retaking (which might lead adcoms to think that he is too "academic" or something along those lines)

It will work if you update your profile! Top right corner, and upgrade to the advanced profile, choose 2+2 HBS as your school and fill out your stats.

Ah, I figured out my problem. I had 2012 selected as my year instead of the 2014 option for the 2+2 applicants.

Hi,

I have finished my sophomore year at a top-ranked US public school as a double major (Electrical Engineering with Finance) and have a 3.65 GPA. I've been shadowing the forums for a while now and though I still have a while before MBA applications, I felt it's never to early to start working in the right direction - so I'm on here for advice! Again, I'm not looking for a "recipe" on how to get into HBS (dream: to get into the 2+2 program) or any other top program (after working a few years i.e.) - but more of a "you're completely off-track/you're on the right track but doing this or focusing on this would be good" been-there-done-that advice!

So here's my current profile (after two years of college):

GPA: Slightly over 3.65 (average for the engg school is sub-3.0 but I still think it's low for 2+2)
GMAT: Haven't taken it yet - but if it's an indicator of anything, I had a 2290 on the SAT
School: Large, Public (consistently top 2-3 in the US)

Other factoids:

* Interned at a major entertainment company (Fortune 500) last summer in their new technologies department. Did a project on my own and was called back this year. It was a great summer and got a good recommendation letter out of it too!

* Interning at the research lab of a Fortune 500: Top 50 company (technology) this summer.

* Started and currently president of an on-campus business student organization. Club grew from nothing to over 60 members in less than 6 months. Is now a prominent business club on campus.

* Vice-President of an engineering society on campus and treasurer of another one

* Been on two major engineering research teams and contributed significantly. Might get a great recommendation out of one of them! Continuing one of the projects and taking a role as a research assistant on a public economics project this coming year.

* Taking the CFA Level 1 either this December or next summer (I don't know if this affects anything)

* Won a bunch of national olympiads at high school level and am currently learning French as a fourth language. (Again, I don't know if this affects anything)

* Am an international student and spent four years in another country (other than my home country) before coming to the US

* Heavily involved with a community service group for autistic children and we're planning an international community service trip for this December.

Since I'm doing a double major, I will probably take 4.5 years to graduate - so I have two years before I apply for the 2+2 and several more before I apply for regular admissions. I would really appreciate any advice, suggestions, comments - anything, really!

In terms of what I want to do in the future, I am very interested in management consulting and large public enterprises. More than that, I want to do something that makes a difference (but then again, who doesn't!) Thanks for reading this long post and for your comments!

PS: Right now, my focus is HBS 2+2, but other schools I am interested in (after working for a few years) are Stanford, Wharton, Chicago, Kellogg, Duke, UVA. Though this is probably going to change considering I have a few years left!

Actually, HBS 2+2 changed it's agenda last year to say that they're not particularly discouraging business oriented majors from applying. That said, this program is supposed to be for people who might have not traditionally been en route to an MBA. You have a pretty solid profile so far. Just keep doing what you love doing and that will matter more than you shaping what you do to get into this program
