How to Get a Yes From HBS, advice from the Director of Admis [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2011, 20:09
Expert's post
In a Bloomberg Businessweek interview, Harvard Business School’s Admissions Director, Dee Leopold, tells applicants how to get a “yes” from HBS.

Tips from Leopold on getting a “yes” from HBS include:


--We’re choosing people who have succeeded by collaborating with others.
--We’re taking people who really want to make a difference in the world
--We are taking people who have a great aptitude and ability for doing analytical work and are talented leaders, yet all of them have a pattern of being engaged in the communities in which they have been members.
--Accepted students all have the qualities that HBS values: being good people of sound character, curious, generous, strong but humble.


Leopold advises applicants: “Let go of that natural desire to stand out. Instead, answer the questions clearly and cleanly, and let selection happen. I think the challenge for applicants should be how to tell their story, not constructing or crafting an application with the goal of standing out.”
