HBS: who should I interview with? [#permalink] New post 29 Jan 2008, 10:40
So, got an interview at HBS. There's really only 3 choices you can have for interview format

Alumni, in person
AdCom, in person, or
AdCom, on the phone

There aren't any Canada alumni interviews (apparently), so I can do AdCom in person, or on the phone. Any comments about which is more preferable?

Also, to make the thread more useful... Does anyone think there's a difference in acceptance rates between alumni and AdCom? My guess is that the alumni acceptance rate would be higher........

If possible, i think Adcom in person is the best. If you have not visited Harvard/Boston, this would be a good choice.

I havent heard of any consistent differences between the acceptance rates of people interviewed with Alumni vs Adcom.

Adcom or Alumni in person. I interact better in person than over the phone.

Personally I like alum because it's more conversational and I don't have to worry about every tiny little mistake I make.

I think in the end, it's pretty much a hit or miss. Either they clicked with you.. or they don't.
You can only do your best.

But if it's any help.. if you meet the person, it would put a face in the application then just a piece of paper. Also, Sandy from the BW forum highly suggested to go with AdComs because they're more predictable than alums.
