Need some advice guys. So i've applied to HBS and Wharton so far and am done with my CBS app. I'm thinking of waiting until tomorrow to see if i get a harvard invite. If not, i want to submit for ED at CBS, as my chances are greatly diminished for HBS. Looking for everyone's thoughts on that. Stats below:

White male 28
2 years HF (spent a year abroad restructuring a deal)
4 years REPE (lead all analytics for $1bn+ AUM firm)
GMAT 760 (Q49/v46) IR 8 AWA 6
Finance major GPA 3.5 (private school in south (SMU, baylor, etc.)
wife and i foster pets very actively
Recs are very solid

Do i roll the dice and do regular decision or increase my odds and give up on Wharton?




Dude thats the best profile ive seen haha. How can you not get an offer, even RD

Agree that he has a good profile... Admits can be random though.

Hey guys, hope everyone had a good Monday (ugh).

I had a quick question, I submitted my application today morning, and when my second recommender tried accessing his LOR form online, he said the link was "expired." Does anyone know how I can manage recommenders once it's submitted; like send their email address a reminder?

Thanks!

They don't start reviewing until every component of the application is in apparently, so if your recommender was late etc. you would be further back in the que.

Has anybody heard back recently post-interview? I'm approaching 2 weeks, and keep staring at/refreshing my phone and email :)

Wonder if they're waiting to see the total crop of ED applicants at this point

Yes, quite a few actually. Take a look at ClearAdmit if you haven't already. People are generally good about providing detail on their profile and application timeline.

Ended up doing ED as CBS really has always been my top choice so regardless of what happens I'm 100% CBS if i get lucky enough to gain an admit. CBS or bust!!

I'm pretty sure I've heard/read from multiple sources that they don't even start looking at regular decision until early decision is done.

Help !
A quick question : I submitted my application about 10 days back and looking over it again today realised that I've entered the wrong dates of participation for one of my undergrad extracurriculars (says 2009 instead of 2010). Should I write to the admissions committee about this or just let it be ?

Don't worry. People have made a lot bigger mistakes than this and still gotten in to top programs, trust me!

Do not contact them. They probably will not notice. They read the materials VERY quickly.

Good luck!
