Anyone else feel silly for even bothering to apply? I suppose people don't normally get into harvard with a 2.9 gpa but maybe the adcom got a good laugh out of my essay. If nothing else atleast I think I'm funny lol.

Until this moment, I still think that I am qualified and deserve, and especially, my essay is top notch. (Not only me think so but my mentor/friends...). However, the adcom may think different from me.

I have got used to failing for not really a reason... That's life. Harvard is just a business school.

I can relate to that feeling, but I still think it was worth a shot. If it doesn't happen, it was never meant to. But at least I tried, gave it my all and do not have any regrets. As the poster above me said, that's life.

A fortnight back, I too had the same feeling on Oxford said. But it's never the end of the world right. As Woody Allen said, "80 percent of success is showing up.” So cheer up, we at least tried.

Yeah I emailed them yesterday and got a quick response we would get the email shortly. Was about to message you about it but just saw this.

Let me know what they say and I will do the same. I just thought SEAs didn't even look at it until you were accepted by the MBA program since you can't get into just the SEAs part.

I am not sure either, but I was going off of the guidance online here:

"Interviewed candidates must submit one additional recommendation for the Master of Science portion of the application. The recommender form will be made available to you with instructions via email at the time you are invited to interview. The recommender should speak to your technical capabilities and experience."

But yes, I'll probably follow up with the admissions team with an email.

Just got my invite. Does anyone know whether getting an invite on Oct. 4 vs. Oct 1 matters? I know they sent out 75% of acceptances on monday. Wondering if the batches sent out today were more of the "borderline" invites.

Also got deferred. Do you know how many applicants usually get deferred?
