Hi everyone,

I am new on this forum. First of all, I would like to congratulate all successful applicants. Also, those who didn't make the cut, more relevant experiences await you (I saying it based on personal experience).

I am an Indian citizen and I applied to couple of US MBA programs few years back (not to HBS though). Got W/L/rejected by all schools. Ultimately, decided to do MBA at later stage and instead pursued one year MSc in Sustainable Development from HEC Paris.

Now, after five years, I am applying to HBS in R2. In this regard, I would like to seek some tips regarding the essay especially from the R1 applicants to make it more insightful for the Adcom. It's a very open ended essay and though I believe I have lot to say, I don't want to meander too much and keep it simple and straightforward by covering basic elements viz. my career trajectory, motivation to pursue MBA and that too HBS, future career course I want to take and how I can contribute to the HBS class. Am I thinking in the right direction??

As regards my profile, I have been working with the United Nations and the Indian Ministry of Finance for last three years. Previously, worked for three years with an energy utility company and one year as a management consultant with development consulting firm. I will be submitting GRE Score (Q-166, B-161 & AWA-4). Post MBA, I want to break into impact investment space.

So, I just seek feedback from you guy regarding the essay approach and any other tips. I understand that competition is really tough but I just want to submit an honest and insightful application.

Best
Shubham

Topic merged. We already have a thread for HBS applications. No need to post this in a new thread.

Are you looking for an exact date? I don't see anything posted but you can count on one month after submission. My client submitted round 1 and received interview notification October 13th I believe. And joyfully, was admitted.

Anyone know when they will send R2 interview invites? I’ve just seen “end of January”.

HBS usually announces interview notification date on their blog couple of weeks before the release but going by last year's trend we can expect invites in between 23rd and 26th Jan. Last year they released invites on Jan 25th.

I heard that they were close for a couple of first days due to storm, so we may receive notifications even later...

Let's say invites will be sent on the 25th. When will the interviews typically take place, so how many weeks after receiving the invite?

According hbs.edu, last year the interviews were scheduled from beginning of Feb:

"Interview invitations will go out in two waves: January 25 and Feb 1. As before, try not to worry about which day you receive an invitation to interview. It’s an administrative step for us to make sure everything goes smoothly with the interview invitations and sign-ups. Interviews will be held from February 3 – March 6."

Question for my fellow rejects out there - The rejection letter posted in December ends with "While we can't provide detailed customized feedback, if a conversation with us in general terms about the future would be helpful, we’ll be available from [dates and times with contact information]." Do you just call them up and ask them to roast you? What kind of feedback do they give?
