Another last minute question,
Should I report sign-on bonus, stock awards in the employment section? If yes, should I report the vested stock amount or the awarded amount?


In terms of the sign-on bonus, I would put in the entering salary bonus field. As for the awarded stock, how much was it worth when it was awarded, that's likely the only way to present as a numerical value. I would enter it as a bonus in the employment section.


Also.... just submitted my application, good luck to everyone!

Free Clear Admit Guide (for 24 hrs only). Good luck to everyone applying!

For 24 hours only we're offering 100% off the Clear Admit HBS School Guide just for Clear Admit newsletter subscribers. Just use promocode HBS100 at checkout.


P.S. It is a decent guide if you get it for free; however, I have not found any good application advice or material in it, just general info about the school available on the internet, so just like with a coupon you have bought on ebay, you seem to pay for someone's time to get it rather than a product itself. Anyone found anything useful there?

What About Late Recommendations? [#permalink]

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: What About Late Recommendations?
Trying to think of what might be helpful today.

Maybe this:

Some of you may be having recommender-induced-anxiety-attacks. All of a sudden your recommender is traveling, for example. What happens if they don't get the recommendation in by noon on Wednesday?

We're used to this. This is how we handle it:

We start to read your application if there is one submitted rec. We keep the online system open for a day or so after the deadline so, yes, we will accept late recommendations.

It's your responsibility to make sure that your recs get submitted. We won't notify you if they are not. We'll just review your application with whatever is in your file.

More tomorrow...

That will be your email address :-) ... the one you have used to register with their site.
P.S. They have an odd system but it is designed to prevent mass distribution of their content, which I understand.

So, if in an unfortunate turn of events we are rejected, can we agree to go with "You know nothing, [Dee Leopold]!"?

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Deep breath.
Yes, today is the Round 1 deadline. Noon, EDT.

I promise that server traffic will be high at high noon. Don't panic. We'll keep the system open as long as there are people trying to submit applications.

The submitted notification on the screen means just that: We've got your application. Don't look for any further notification from us about whether your application is complete.

Yes, you may submit your application before your recommendations are in.

We're here...waiting and watching and answering phones if you need us!

As soon as we get through the next day or so, we'll post about our timing on interview invitations.
