So Chad said yesterday that they are releasing decisions via application status page at 12 EST. Do they still do phone calls or just release decisions on the status page?? And do all decisions go out at the same time?

Last year, many people reported that they have received their decision through email. So, I guess they don't communicate decision through the phone. I also see the decision reported in a short span of time, so my guess would be they send email or portal update in bulk.

From previous years data, I see Harvard usually sends out decisions starting 10 AM ET.




Naa man! GMAT Clubs time stamp varies and sometime seems to be set in Mountain Time which explains why the decisions appear to be at 10AM EST but they were in fact Noon eastern. Good luck everyone! Extremely anxious and nervous right now.

In case you have not, make sure your LinkedIn is up-to-date.
I believe the admissions board is checking out LinkedIn profiles. In my "People Also Viewed" section, I saw fellow Harvard Business School applicants.

5 days to go! :thumbup:

Thanks for the heads up. Your post got me to check out my LinkedIn, and for better or worse, I saw that someone from HBS had viewed my profile too. How do you know that other applicants are the ones in your "People Also Viewed" section?

The HBS searchers can also be current students who are supposed to congratulate you post-offer.


Ugh

Is that a thing? Never heard that current students learn about decisions before they are announced.

Just speculating lolol. Anyway seriously speaking there are so many explanation on why the search happened. I do not think it is a reliable predictor.

No way HBS lets current students know who's admitted or not prior to the 11th date. They have the most professional and transparent process in MBA applications out there, they'd never risk leaks like that.

makes sense! probably someone in adcom then. There are so many possible reasons why adcom visited our LinkedIn profiles (clarifying some info, curiosity (they are human too), etc.), but yeah let's makes sure we all have a presentable LinkedIn profile! lol

For sure man. I'm sure they check everyone to be honest. Like you said they are people too. I just think they are savy enough to do it on private mode or on a burner profile which is why I would not panic. No HBS searches on mine either. I'm dying with anxiety yall.

hmm I am actually not sure they checked everyone or even everyone admitted. Seems like strange SOP for school as standardized as Harvard as some people does not have LinkedIn profile (especially the internationals). Maybe they searched people they are curious about or some adcoms may be just bored and search applicant profile randomly (that's what I did to HBS current students and alumni haha)

All will be well! if we are qualified enough to get an interview at HBS, I am sure we will lead a successful career no matter what.

If we end up not getting accepted, it may be because there are other better-fit MBA programs, or maybe MBA is not just the path. We already put our best foot forward, now we just have to trust Adcom professionals to make the best judgment :)

Having said that I still hope to get accepted though! hahaha

All - please do not try to read too much into the LinkedIn view. I shared it to suggest that having our LinkedIn up to date (location, new job/promotion) would be a good idea. It's good business practice anyway.

lego8 - "How do you know that other applicants are the ones in your "People Also Viewed" section?"
---> I personally know the ones who showed up on my "People Also Viewed" section. They interviewed on the same day that I interviewed on campus.

bondtradercu - "where do you go to see where your searchers work?"
---> as part of LinkedIn's free feature, go to your profile and click "Search Appearances"

Have a greaet weekend!
