Question to those who already scheduled their interviews:

When you log back in to your application, is there any confirmation of your interview being scheduled?

When I log back in, the page looks as if I did not pick a time yet and I still need to pick one.

When I registered yesterday I was clicking around on a few different time-slots trying to find one as they were all being quickly booked. On the interview information site it says your interview will be cancelled if you attempt to book multiple time slots....

ds632 I don't think that is true. I saw numerous invites listed on the clear admit live wire.

You should have received a confirmation email confirming your time slot (I got one a few minutes after I selected my time). Also, if you look at the very bottom of the status update page (where it has the interview instructions) it says that the status page will not change after you have picked your interview preference... So, as long as you got a confirmation email, you should be good.

Hi guys, I've been reading a lot of other people's post so I wanted to contribute.

I received an invite on Thursday at 12noon ET. My stats are below:
GPA - 3.75 (top 15 undergrad)
GMAT - 760 (higher Verbal)
Work - <4 years working in Asia for investment fund
Post MBA goal - Consulting
Submitted my application right at the deadline 8-) . Had one fairly glaring typo in my main essay!

Hope that provides context. Good luck to all for third round of invites and other B schools as well!

I'm panicking hardcore, no interview invite and only
one last chance, not promising at all. Only silver lining is that it seems the sentiment across the board is that they seem to be distributing amongst the 3 dates, and no 2+2 till later. This is my second attempt at this so I the heartbreak will be real.

HBS would be an amazing place for anyone and I know how much sweat and tears we put into our applications - but to keep things in perspective, any business school (including HBS) should only be seen as a place that will "accelerate" us to where we ultimately may want to be, but by no means is it the only way to get there. What drives each of us is our passion - whatever that may be. HBS, no matter how amazing, is not an "end" to itself. For the vast majority of us who will not be admitted, this application process has been an invaluable opportunity to reflect upon ourselves and the paths that we have each chosen to walk.

Anyway, long story short - don't be heartbroken if you don't get in - in the long lives that we each will live, there will be real tears and heartaches - this likely will not be one of them.

I feel your anxiety. Trust I know what it feels like. I applied for the second time myself. Here's to hoping that what you're saying is true. Definitely feel the same pinch though. You are not alone.

All the very best.

Thank you for that perspective. So important to keep as we all go through this process.

I'm very nervous and somewhat shattered that I haven't gotten an invite so far. Put my heart and soul into this, and I'm supremely passionate about what I do and my career goals. But what will stay with us is our passion and life will give real pains, like you said.

Hey all,

I'd like to hear what people think is going to happen tomorrow regarding invites, since there's been so much conflicting info swimming around. I know that in years past the majority of invites have been sent on the first day, however so far this year, only 8% of R1 applicants on gmat club have been invited. Over the past three years, this number has held steady at 18%. Based on this data, am I correct to assume that the difference will be made up tomorrow? Is there something I'm missing here?

I'd say the sample size is too small to confidently deduce anything. It's all speculation too.

All we know is that invites, further consideration and releases are tomorrow. Fingers crossed it's invites.

I'm clinging to that thought. I mean it seems logical based on gmat club stats. However, I have read so different opinions in P&Q, some have the feeling that invites so far are the same as last year and others think that they are being evenly sent in the three dates. I guess no one really knows in the end, so I'm just crossing fingers for tomorrow.

Good luck for everyone waiting for an invite.

I understand everyone wants to attend HBS and everyone has put tremendous effort into their round 1 applications, but it's nice out today at least where I am and I think many people here are over-analyzing the admissions process, which changes every year and is kept secret.

It's possible things this year are just way more competitive.

1) Application numbers have steadily risen since the 08' housing market crash.

2) There's a lot more publications and data now that suggests the ROI for an MBA is only worth it if you attend a high ranked school. This is obvious if you look at the accept rates for schools as you go higher up in rankings, just look at the stats for Stanford in the past couple years.

3) It's possibly the best time in U.S history to apply to law school, and the worst time to graduate. As law schools are at an all time low for applicants (because of a poor job market), many extremely qualified and smart college graduates who would have otherwise gone to law school are instead opting for an MBA. I would not be surprised to see HBS' accept rate, much like Stanford's, to drop from 11% to 5-8%. Bottom line is this the dearth of interview invites may be indicative of a much more highly competitive application pool, and not some change to invite frequency.

Hey guys, one question for you:

I´ve read in many websites that the chances of receiving an offer after you get an invite to interview is roughly 55-60% (Is this really correct?). Do you think that all the candidates that were invited to interview have the same odds of getting in or even if you do poorly on the interview day they´ll still look into the whole application before making a decision?

Thanks for your input! I was really surprised after I received the invitation to interview and I'd like to know what my chances are...

Your interview 100% matters. Congratulations on your invite to interview, this means they are interested enough to learn more about you. Unlike other interviews where it is alumni based, HBS is done by Admissions. This means that they are looking to gather more information to make a decision. I would prepare accordingly, it is a huge day.

Again, congratulations on your invite. Hoping for one tomorrow ;)
