Not sure if you are a Celtics fan... or not but Kyrie Irving (The Celtics point guard) has started at HBS this fall. I am guessing not going to change anyone's plans.

P.S. This is not the full program but rather a semester-long program taught by Anita Elberse... specifically targetting athletes.

Just curious what y'all think about my odds for applying for the 2+2 program. Currently I am graduating from arguably the top Petroleum Engineering program in December with a 3.9 GPA (Texas public university). I have had internships at a small boutique investment bank as well as one of the major oil and gas companies and have a full time job offer doing Reservoir Engineering. I have community service on my resume and ran a charity even during my time at university.

I have taken the GMAT before and got a 680 which was much lower than my GMAT practice test scores which were typically around 700-720. I am going to retake it hope to score around a 730-750 after studying for a few months.

Do y'all think I have a good chance?

Hey, FYI this is not the forum for profile evaluation. Please post you profile evaluation query here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/chance-me-for-harvard-mba-237575.html :)

For the past few years they have been sending them out on two dates, and they post these dates on the MBA Admissions blog.

Everyone usually knows if they got an invite or not by Oct 6-ish, so not much longer (unless they totally change their process this year...).

Looking back a few years,
2017
Deadline: Sept 6
Interviews/Rejects went out: Oct 2 and Oct 5

2016
Deadline: Sept 7
Interviews/Rejects: October 4, 6, and 12.

2015
Deadline: Sept 9
Interviews: October 6, 8, and 14

2016 is when the new dean took over.

So, for 2018, based on a simple linear regression model, I'd say we'll hear back on October 1.

Yeah, last year they dropped the third notification date because I believe it was mostly/solely 2+2 applicants.

Keep an eye on the HBS MBA Admissions blog to know for sure -- they'll post about it there soon, I would think.

My clients last year in Round 1 had interviews on Nov 6 and 11. Not sure how long past that they go.

Do you know if we can interview on saturday or sunday? Does it make a difference compared to a weekday? I heard there would just be one officer on the weekend versus two.

And I assume on campus is better than off campus?

I do seem to remember that there were some weekend options. In past years, various adcom members or trusted people they outsource interviews to (who've worked with them in certain cities for YEARS) are the ones conducting the interviews in several cities outside of Boston. I've had clients who were accepted interview on campus, at one of the city interviewing hubs across the world, and over Skype, so I honestly do not think it makes a difference. If you are lucky enough to get an invite, you should do what is going to make you feel the most confident (and that you can swing logistically and financially, of course).

Hope that helps -- best of luck!

All over the place! My successful clients interviewed on campus, in a ton of different interview-hub cities across the country and world, and even over Skype a few times (military applicants). So it's totally fine to do what works best for you out of the options you'll be given.
