FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Round 3
We wrapped up Round 2 interviews last week. What a pleasure to finally get to know you in person (or via Skype) and to learn from you. We are in the midst of the (tough) final decisions and will be back in touch soon – March 22 at noon Eastern Time via the online application system.

But, a break from Round 2 decisions to connect with all of you thinking about applying in Round 3 (deadline is April 3). A few thoughts:

2+2 deferred admissions applicants: If you’re a college senior thinking about 2+2, I’d encourage you to apply! There is limited downside. The 2+2 program is small (and, yes, competitive). But, if you are not admitted now, you can get a few years of experience and apply again. There is (absolutely) no stigma attached to this, and many have been admitted to HBS through this path. If you are admitted through 2+2, you have the wonderful certainty of HBS in your future 2-4 years from now. Also, remember there is a reduced application fee for 2+2 applications.

Class of 2019 applicants: For those of you who want to be at HBS in the Fall of 2017, we’d love for you to apply! Yes, it’s true that many seats are filled in Rounds 1 and 2, but there are also fewer applicants in Round 3. We always admit some great candidates in Round 3. Are Round 3 admits eligible for financial aid? Absolutely! The same generous need-based financial aid is available to all admits. Please do keep in mind, however, if you are an international student, being admitted in Round 3 gives you less time for visa processing.

Hope this helps. Don’t forget we have two QA webinars coming up on March 20 and March 27 to help you answer any last minute questions.

Just came across this interesting discussion on Quora on international HBS applicants.. https://www.quora.com/Is-it-possible-to ... a-rejected The main point coming out of the discussion - specifically from the former consular officer's reply - is that your post MBA goals should be flexible enough to allow you to get employment in your home country or anywhere outside of US at some point in future.

Has anyone else noticed the # of R2 applicants for this cycle is significantly lower than both 2016's and 2015's intake cycles?

This year's R1 applicants on Gmatclub: 436, vs. 500 and 501 (in 2016 and 2015 respectively). This is roughly stable, almost 90% of the # of applicants from previous 2 years.

This year's R2 applicants on Gmatclub: 161, vs. 246 and 313 (in 2016 and 2015 respectively). Pretty dramatic drop-off, relative to both 2016 and relative to this year's R1. Is this because a large % of R2 applicants have not made profiles?

Not sure what to make of this.

I also noticed the number of R2 applicants seemed very low. Where do you go to find the previous years data?

Agree. We have fewer applicants in R2 this year in comparison with last year's stats, particularly in HBS and Kellogg. Not sure why though.

No calls before the decision is released online at 12PM ET, but interviewers call to confirm the good news after (likely tomorrow, possibly later today).
