This is stressful, isn't it? But remember you are amazing, and you will have an amazing life and career ahead of you - regardless of where you matriculate.

Try and look at the brighter side. I hope you have your health, and that in and of itself is wealth. Any top MBA program will afford you with a great education. The delivery might be somewhat different, but the overall tenets will be similar. Some of those programs may want you and may admit you. Hopefully, you applied to more than one.

If you are dinged by HBS, I am hoping that you will be granted admission elsewhere or make other plans. Whatever you end up doing, engross yourself in that experience and make an impact there. In this way, any ding you receive will be nothing more than a distant, faint memory.

Good luck to you and your amazing self.

Either few of those with invites have calmed down enough to post or fewer folks than expected have received an invite. In any case, que sera sera. Congratulations to those who got an interview, and fingers crossed for everyone waiting for next week :wink:

Just so people know it's begun -- just got an invite.

I had been deferred from rd 1, for context. Between my hasty (and somewhat justified given some personal circumstances) application in round 1, I jumped from a 640 to a 740. (Q48; V44 - 740). I can't tell whether THAT made the difference or whether it's my differentiated profile. (I'm dead serious.)

Anyway, this is just the first step.

Good luck to everyone else!

Edit: Oh, and my exact time of receipt was 12:16pm. I'm sure they're still coming in.


Congratulations on the invite. I am curious about your GMAT increase. You applied to HBS in R1 with 640 and then your GMAT jumped to 740. Did you send the updated score to HBS after your application submission? If yes, then it is a bit weird that they considered your new score as it is not per HBS' policies as mentioned in http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/appli ... icies.aspx

Good luck for the interview.

Hey All,

Just got an interview invite at 12:16pm. I was deferred R1. I come from a slightly non-conventional background so I'm sure they wanted to compare me against the other non-traditional R2ers out there.

I agree with earlier sentiment about the professionalism of HBS admissions. They've set the bar phenomenally high.

Best of luck everyone. I know the process is super stressful, but if you've put your best foot forward and are applying to schools in your range, I'm sure it will work out!

Did every applicant submit their official GMAT report to Harvard when applying?

I did not send my official report, and I wasn't contacted to submit it. I wonder if this is an issue.

As a side note, I don't have a checkmark next to "Application Proof" in the Applicant Status page - it's a weird cache image.

Anyone else?

The website said "Every applicant must request that Pearson (for the GMAT) or ETS (for the GRE) send an official score report directly to HBS."

I think it wasn't worth risking not to send the official score.

"The exception to this is that you need to send us official GMAT or GRE score reports, if you haven't done so already. Again, we will contact you if we do not receive them - and we will begin to review your application with the self-reported scores."

From the application confirmation.

Yes - totally the dumbest thing to do, and not send it. Based on this though, they should have contacted if anything, no?

I received an interview invite and I also have the weird cached image next to "Cached Application," so I don't think should be an issue.

Congrats guys. A question to all the folks that got an interview invite: when did you guys submit your application? Was it day of deadline or long before. I was curious about the order they review the applications in. Also did you notice any change in status on the application page before the invite email.

228 people have applied to R2 (as per the GmatClub stats) but only 10 have updated their profile to "Invited for Interview". Either HBS didn't send enough invites out or people with invites are off celebrating (I hope it's the former).

Congrats to all the applicants who got invited. Best of luck!

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Round 2 Interviews
Greetings from Dillon House. If we had treadmill desks, we'd all be logging in marathon miles. Happily, we have a lot of applications to keep us busy for the next few weeks.

Here's our plan for interview invitations:

  • Interview invitations will go out in two waves: January 27 and February 3
  • All candidates not being invited to interview will receive notice of their release on February 3
  • All 2+2 candidates will receive an invitation or be released on February 3
  • Interviews will take place between February 11 and March 4
  • Campus Interview Days will offer opportunities for class visits, student and faculty panels, and campus tours
  • Hub cities this round are:
    • London, Paris, Mumbai, Dubai, Tokyo, Menlo Park, and NYC

Detailed information will be included in the interview invitation!

Back to work,

Dee

Round 2 Interview Invitations [#permalink]

New post 27 Jan 2016, 16:00
FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Round 2 Interview Invitations
Greetings to all of you. This post is, quite frankly, not a news flash, but more like a reminder of what we’ve said before. We’re moving along here and the plan is to send out the first wave of interview invitations on Wednesday, January 27. Our plan is for this first wave to be released at 12:00 noon Boston time.

Invitations will include detailed instructions about the sign-up process and our Campus Interview Days. Remember, where you choose to interview has no bearing on the evaluation process - all of our interviews are conducted by members of the Admissions Board. If you choose to interview in a hub city, you are still warmly invited to come to campus and attend the activities we plan for the day.

We will send out invitations in two waves. As I just said, Wave 1 is January 27. On February 3, we will send out more invitations (Wave 2) and also release the candidates who will not be moving forward to the interview stage. Please note that all 2+2 interview invitations will go out in this second wave on February 3.

Please don’t send any additional materials to us. We consider applications complete at the time of submission and we will not be adding information to anyone’s file.

I do know that this stage is hard - the waiting - but please channel your energy into good deeds or work or family - or a million other things besides sending things to us!
