Quick question to you guys, maybe you can help as I didn't receive any answer from HBS.

My question concerns the HBS 2+2 MBA programme. I have read that in order to be eligible for a class entering Fall of 2020, I have to be graduating between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.

Currently I’m going to graduate from Master degree around December 2018 due to the newly introduced final examination which will be held around half a year after classes finish in May 2018. As the classes finish in May, I was planning to start my full time employment in June 2018.

Due to my delayed graduation around December 2018, I will have to apply in the next year (class entering Fall of 2021) and the question is - does any full time experience after finishing my Master disqualify me from applying to 2+2 MBA?

I also know, that there might be a possibility to ask the Dean of my university for an exception and granting me a possibility to sit this final exam sooner so I could have a chance to graduate before September 30, 2018 and apply to HBS this year. I would be grateful for your response and clarifying whether this sooner examination is the only chance for me to apply to 2+2 MBA at HBS.

I noticed that there is way less blogging happening by comparison to last year? (Maybe WAY more applicants?)

Do you mean blogging on this forum or "Direct from the Director" blog on HBS website?

I meant direct from the director blogging. I think by this time last year there were multiple blogs about next steps. This year - crickets.

I agree with you, last year they were very active, but I feel like snowstorms that hit US East Coast kept HBS shut for longer than expected and they are trying to catch up with their regular timeline. Plus, on their HBSAdmissions instagram account they posted something like "R2 applicants, we are reading your applications!" in their story, so don't worry, they are not completely silent :-)

The friend of mine got into HBS last year with GMAT 690, so it always depends on the full profile:-)

Was your friend a URM or just had incredible experience/story?

Always interested in the outliers that gain admission.

Does the majority of the invites still go out on the first day - 1/25? I remember in the past 90% went out on first day.
