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



i wholly agree with you. the number of invites on jan 27th is a bit light! here's hoping there's plenty more on feb 3!

Any chance that they released invitations for only some of the hub cities?

Anyone invited in Tokyo?

I don't think they released only for hub cities. I saw in the livewire that some applicants in Mexico received invitations yesterday.

Hopefully we will see another decent bunch of invitations next week. I basically lost hope but you never know!

Agreed. Applicants from LA, Delhi, etc. have been invited and these are not hub cities. But the number of invites seem to be on the low side.

So do you all think that not that many invites went out on the 27th, and that we can expect a good amount more on the 3rd?

I did not see anything that alluded to the number of invites going out on the respective dates this year, just the amounts that have gone out on previous years.

We can only speculate at this point based on what we see on this forum + clearadmit. Eitherway, the wait wont be too long as the 2nd wave is coming next week.

I think it is just as Dee stated... the majority went out yesterday, and the 2+2 invites plus a smaller number of "normal applicant" invites will go out on the third. I know this is an anxious time, but using what people report in various forums to determine... well, ANYTHING, is probably not a very solid strategy. All that matters is that it ain't over till it's over, so there is reason to keep hope alive!

Are you interviewing on campus or in a hub city?

(Either way, I don't think there's a way to know exactly who it will be. I believe it will be a member of the adcom no matter what, though. And they will know your application IN DETAIL, so prepare for very, very specific questions, not the typical "tell me about a time when..." interview questions.)

Congrats and good luck!

Congratulations to all who received invites yesterday! Fingers crossed for remaining R2 folks; hope to see plenty of invites on Feb 3rd. It's a humble request to all invited applicants that update your forum application status (http://screencast.com/t/2tWzqTzn1MmS) to reflect the same in the stats.

Per forum stats 14 applicants received invites so far.

If you read through Sandy K's blog posts he has some information about which adcom members typically travel to which hub cities, but even if his info from previous years holds true this year you'd have (at best) a 1/2 or 1/3 chance of guessing correctly.

As I Notice from Dee's post on the blog on 25th Jan, she has not talked about number of interview invites in first wave and second wave . May be it is different from usual stats (600+200). Nevertheless, let's hope that there are lot more left ( one for each one of us) in the wave coming out on Wednesday

Read through older blog posts on HBS admission blog. I believe these were the numbers in 2015 or 2014.

Hi Erika, I don't believe Dee stated that majority this round that majority would be in the first wave - was this stated anywhere?

Blog says
"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."

Email says
"We expect that interview invitations will be issued in late January and early February. Interviews will be conducted in February and early March. All of the necessary details will be in the interview invitation."

[quote="SBCErikaOlson"]I think it is just as Dee stated... the majority went out yesterday, and the 2+2 invites plus a smaller number of "normal applicant" invites will go out on the third. I know this is an anxious time, but using what people report in various forums to determine... well, ANYTHING, is probably not a very solid strategy. All that matters is that it ain't over till it's over, so there is reason to keep hope alive!

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.


I submitted about 30 minutes after the deadline and I didn't notice a change in status before the interview invite.

I just reread her posts and you are correct! She didn't actually say that most would go out in Wave 1 -- I must have just been remembering that from past years (and even that might've just been RUMORS/SPECULATION I was remembering from past years). So now there's even MORE reason to keep hope alive for tomorrow! Thanks for pointing that out because I hate when other people make those kinds of mistakes and now here I go doing the same thing during a stressful time for everyone. Sincere apologies and best of luck!
