So, today was the only day when invites are being sent? Does it mean that if I haven't received an invite today, I am not "moving forward"?

Honestly, I was looking for an invite from 9-9:05am California time. When I didnt see anything then I was a bit dejected. Then suddenly bam, at 10am sharp I got the email!!!!

Sorry to hear that. But I thought that they'll send dings only on Thursday.

Congratulations to those who received invites. Hopefully more of us will hear back on Thursday.

Noticed the invited all have especially high quant scores. Probably shouldn't read too much into that.

You can find all the data in the HBS Decision Tracker - just click on the gray "Invited to Interview" circle. Here is a screenshot frozen in time....

Only 13 from GMAT club? That seems low, either people are not updating their status or not all invites for today have gone out. Does HBS normally send all the invites of day one at the exact same time?

I'm pretty sure all of them came out in one wave today. It's likely that people haven't updated their status but I think it may also be possible that the Thursday wave will be bigger because of today's technical issues. I think it's unlikely that more are coming today but that's just my opinion.

It's already 4pm on the East Coast so I wouldn't expect more invites to go out today.

Man check out those quant scores. Do I need to retake the GMAT? ;)

I guess there are reasons to feel that not enough invites went out, but I believe that they did. I think 67% invites are out like they said it would. I’d not be more hopeful on Thursday.

That said, I hope all of us get an interview.

Thanks everyone for the rolling updates, I know today’s certainly been a rollercoaster ride! To those with invites, congratulations and all the best for your interviews! I do still feel like, statistically speaking, there should have been more people invited. Perhaps some Gmat Club regulars, or reapplicants can shed some light here, generally what were the stats in previous years on day 1 of invitations?. Is this a normal turnout according to the tracker and chat rooms?

The good thing is, whatever the result, we're all still beautiful independent women who made it this far.


Reposting this for everyone who is now waiting until Thursday....also I made stress induced brownies if anyone wants one.
