Hispanic Male applying R2 this cycle
GPA: 3.3 in Anthropology from Top 10 US university (non-HYP)
GMAT: 710 (47Q/40V/8IR/6AWA) Only took GMAT once. During practice, scored 720-740 consistently, but always <47Q, so I am hesitant to take again.
W/E: 7 years at matriculation with all of my experience in sales & trading. Currently work in portfolio finance at an elite hedge fund with top name recognition. I have managed people every year after my first year post-graduation.
Activities outside of work:
1. For the four years post-graduation, I competed in a sport where I was ranked top 100 in the world (Olympic sport with little to no $$ it you aren't top 5-10).
2. My spouse and I are very active in an urban mentoring program and ended up fostering a child for two years that was part of that program.
3. In addition to mentoring, I coached a youth club for the same sport as above. Extremely successful.
Post-MBA: Investment banking

Any point in applying to HBS besides saying that I did it? Dream school for obvious reasons, but I am not sure if applying is worth my time at this point if my chances are very low. Looking for any critiques or advice.

Thanks everybody and best of luck

Mate, you have one hell of a story, so I would say go for it!

In terms of IB as post-MBA goal, perhaps Wharton is a better fit (more experienced members will correct me if necessary), but I doubt HBS will see it as a red flag. In the end, it all comes down to how you present yourself to the AdCom and I think you have all the components for a successful application.

Does anyone know what will happen on the 12th next week? Are there only two possibilities - accepted and rejected, or being waitlisted is also a possibility? Appreciate any insights!

I believe it's still possible to be waitlisted until R2 decisions come out

In years past HBS has been explicit that they will not make calls the day before their official notification date. I have not seen anything regarding that this year.

Has anyone else seen info that I am missing? In a day and a half it won't matter but I'm curious as if people are expecting admitted students (or some portion of admitted students) to get phone calls tomorrow?

Either way, the waiting is no fun.
