Important Reminders from Harvard Business School

HBS For anyone planning to apply to Harvard Business School this year, director of admissions and financial aid Dee Leopold recently offered a roundup of answers to common questions she's been hearing from Round 1 applicants.

Although some candidates may be tempted to submit a lengthy resume to counterbalance the recently reduced number of essays in the Harvard Business School application, Leopold cautions that a one-page resume is still a good guideline. Also, do not submit anything extra with your application. Period.

Don't forget to manage the recommender process! Applicants must input their recommenders' names and contact information before the application deadline, the director stresses, since that's the only way they will be able to access the recommender form.

We all know business school is expensive, so if you are interested in applying for financial aid, sit tight for now because all need-based financial aid information goes out only to admitted students.

The online scheduler for first-year class visits have opened and the slots are filling up fast, so head on over to set up your appointment to visit a class and learn more about the HBS case method.
