I am not sure if at the same time but apparently notifications are within an hour window.

from my experience in Round 1, it seemed like over 90% of invites went on on the first batch and the second batch was almost exclusively for 2+2.

everyone gets the email ding to "check your status" at the same time (within a few mins, around noon EST). I'll be expecting mine tomorrow at that time :)

Does anyone know if there is "further consideration" for this round as well?

I'm loving the optimism!! here's hoping you're right.

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."

SBCErikaOlson wrote:
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!

I can't find it, but I read somewhere on the HBS site/interview with Dee that it may be possible, but much fewer than in R1.

So if one were to get an invite tomorrow, it will be prominently mentioned in the body of the email, while those "released" will get a generic email about checking the status of their application--is that correct?
