FROM HBS Admissions Blog: It's the Last Day of the Season!!
Yes, today is the final application deadline for the Class of 2018 - but we bet you already know that!

Just a couple of details:

The deadline is 12:00 noon (Boston time). We do not shut off the application system until every application in the process of submitting has been received. Your confirmation comes not from us, but from the system. If you are able to submit, we've got it. We really DO want to be able to include you in this year's application season!!

And we know that your recommenders don't ALWAYS do things according to deadlines, so we'll keep accepting recs for at least another day. We will begin to review your application as soon as one rec is submitted.

Tomorrow I'll post details about interview invitations and the interview schedule.

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Round 3 Interview Invitations
So sorry for being later than promised on this!

Here's the plan:

On April 20 (at 12:00 noon Boston time) we will send out all Round 3 interview invitations. We'll also be releasing all candidates not moving forward to the interview stage.

Instructions for signing up for interviews will be in the invitation.

Note: We'll be interviewing on campus on April 29 and May 2. We'll also have limited interview slots in NYC, Palo Alto, London. Skype interviews will be available for international candidates and college students with academic conflicts.

Hope this is helpful...not too long to wait!

I assume calls won't begin until after noon (Boston time) tomorrow, same way every other round is managed.

News Flash: 2+2 Application Process for Next Season [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 11 May 2016, 12:00
FROM HBS Admissions Blog: News Flash: 2+2 Application Process for Next Season
This really is news.

2+2 applicants will have ONE DEADLINE (April 3) and ONE DECISION NOTIFICATION (mid-May).

That means no more picking rounds for college seniors. No more worry about ‘which round is best?’. You will all be reviewed together in April.

Why? This way we get to see fall term grades and activities. And we can review the entire pool at once - a luxury we don’t have in the (much larger) work-experienced pool.

So if you’d like to submit earlier than April, that’s fine. But this isn’t a “rolling” process so your application won’t be considered until the April deadline.

We haven’t finalized interview dates yet (it’s a year away!!) but they will most likely be in late April/early May with a notification in mid-May.

Just a refresher on what will stay the same:  

2+2 is a vehicle for college seniors (and master’s degree students without full-time work experience) to APPLY to Harvard Business School. It is NOT a separate educational experience.

The positive outcome for a 2+2 applicant is a guaranteed spot in a future class contingent upon gaining employment for at least two years before matriculation. Many participants elect to work for three years and some for four. You’ve heard us say this before and we’ll say it again: 2+2 probably should be re-named “Flex+2”.  Maybe we’ll do that. Your plans for employment need to be approved by us but we encourage a wide range of career exploration.

Hope this gives all of you rising seniors something to think about...we wish you a wonderful summer.

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Endings and Beginnings
Today we released Round 3
decisions. Included in this group are a few invitations to
join the waitlist. Eileen Chang will be communicating with
this group via email.

We thank everyone who applied to
HBS this past season. While we will never be able to say “yes” as many
times as we’d like,  please know that we are honored to have received
almost 10,000 applications - and proud to be the place which attracts so
many talented leaders who want to make a difference in the world.

Now it’s time to think about the
Class of 2019!

Here are some details – first,
submission deadlines:







Round 1:  September 7, 2016



Round 2:   January 4,
2017




Round 3:  April 3, 2017

And we are also revealing the
essay question:

“As we review your application,
what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the
Harvard Business School MBA Program?”


No word limit and no right
answers. It’s all yours.

The new application will go live
in early June -  stay tuned for an update when that happens.

We've also made updates to the 2+2 application process - please see the post below for details.

We wish all of you a safe and
happy summer.

Onward!

Hola! This is only relevant for admits from Spain & Portugal (or with high interest in working mainly in these markets based in Madrid!). I have just seen in Facebook the following:

Bain & Company Madrid Office is planning a Pre-MBA event at 19:30 in June 23rd and would like to invite the HBS Class of 2018 admits. It is a unique opportunity to understand what we do in Strategy Consulting very early on!

Please **send an email to Patricia Miralles (patricia.miralles{@}bain{.}com, I can't write it as a normal email address, but you only have to delete the brackets) ** if you would like to attend, and she will answer back to you, or you can follow the instructions in the web page of Bain Madrid, where you also have more information.

If you are interested in Bain Madrid, even if you can't attend, also let her know!

Congratulations on your admission!

Business As Usual (Reprise) [#permalink]

New post 10 Jun 2016, 05:00
FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Business As Usual (Reprise)
Hello. Chad Losee here, writing to you for the first time. I came in to Dillon House early today to write this post; I’m sitting in an office across the hall from where I interviewed for admission into the HBS MBA program five and a half years ago. It’s surreal.

Let me begin by saying that I am humbled and honored to be serving HBS (and you) in this role. I remember quite clearly what it feels like to put yourself out there in a business school admissions process, and I am committed to keeping up the tradition of transparency and humanity that has been a hallmark of the admissions process at Harvard Business School for several years.

I’ll skip to the bottom line: I think you should apply. An MBA at HBS is a transformative experience—I learned and became so much more than what I started with. I brought one voice and one perspective to the case method classroom, but I was challenged and shaped and enhanced by the other 90 voices in the room. Now we need your distinct perspective in our classroom.

So…let me address a few things that may be on your mind:

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR HAS NOT CHANGED
Just to be clear: we are (still) looking for students who show 1) a habit of leadership, 2) analytical aptitude and appetite, and 3) engaged community citizenship. More on this here. We want you to apply.

OUR ADMISSIONS PROCESS IS THE SAME
You may have already seen that our application is now live. As in years past, we will read (and re-read) and consider the application in its entirety —application, resume, essay, recommendations, transcripts, interview, post-interview reflection, GMAT or GRE scores, etc.  Said another way, no one thing will get you admitted or “released” from our admissions process. We are selecting a class with diverse backgrounds and perspectives—elements that are the foundation of learning by the case method.

WE ARE HERE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR NEED HELP 
Call us (+1 617 495 6128). Email us (hbsadmissions@hbs.edu). Come to one of our global outreach events. Join a live webinar. Drop by our office in Dillon House. Register (in September) to visit a class. We’re here for you.

More soon.
