You have a chance at 2+2 if you can show leadership, initiative, and innovation in your activities in college. I can't tell from your post if you have those qualities or not. Your grades are good and I don't think your freshman year is a deal-killer. But lack of the the qualities I mentioned would kill your chances at 2+2.

Best,
Linda

With those activities you should be able to demonstrate the qualities HBS seeks so I think it makes sense for you to apply. However, HBS 2+2 is extremely competitive. Don't set your heart on it. Apply. Give it your best. But don't count on it.

Best,
Linda
