I cant continue waiting!!!! During my interview the questions were very very very specific (It seemed an economy test!). So I dont know how I did it


Mine as well, but not such specific probably as yours, although I was so surprised that we spoke like 40% about my college time.



I hope you have good results!!!

Hey guys, so I am thinking of applying to HBS 2+2 and Stanford MBA deferred admission. Would like to know what you think of my chances of getting to the interview stage/ getting an offer

I am from Montreal, Canada (23 year old white male)
Undergrad: Non-target US university (Economics & Finance)
GPA: 3.96/4.0 (top 1%)
Masters: Masters in Management at London Business School (LBS)
GMAT: 710 (49Q, 38V, 8IR, 5.0 AWA)
Work Experience: Investment banking analyst (M&A, ECM, DCM) in a top Canadian Bank (will start in July 2018)
Leadership: Captain of my NCAA tennis team in Florida, MVP for 2 years
EC: Professional tennis player for 7 years, ranked 668 in the world (played in over 40 different countries), represented Canada in the Junior Olympics in Singapore
Sponsorship from Adidas and Babolat
Post-MBA Goal: Venture Capital or Private Equity in a top US fund

In my essay, I plan to leverage my tennis experience and discuss everything I have learned from it (leadership, dedication, performing under pressure, time management, problem solving, interpersonal skills).

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, you can PM me :)

Thanks in advance!

Got my "big envelope" today from HBS admissions. Made an unboxing video for my family who are not around. It was pretty fun! Sharing here just in case anyone is curious.

They would like some examples of the different kinds of situations in which you read, write or speak English if it is not your first language.

So, for example, do you have to speak in English to colleagues at work or in a US-based office? If so, that would be something to include in the "Speaking" box.

Hope that helps!
