I was waitlisted at HBS in Round 1 and am still on the WL. Another person from my firm just got an offer from HBS in R2, so not sure if I'm just on the WL as a backup for that person in case they don't accept.
Either way, I really really want to attend HBS and am thinking of all possible ways to make this happen. Since they don't accept additional materials, would send a recommendation letter from my company's CEO (who was an HBS alum) hurt me or help?
Well, let him send it of his own will, without your involvement. I don't know that it will be extremely helpful, but as a former HBS alum, who is CEO, it's not bad.
Hope this helps,
