Just fyi all - a new "Direct from the Director" has been posted, confirming the dates others have already alluded to.

Based on last year, the deadline was Jan 3, 2019, and invites and dings went out on Jan 28 and Jan 31. I would assume first week of February will be where dings and interviews are sent out, and will be similar to R1 this year where all decisions were announced on one day.

Best of luck


I'm guessing (based on a few "Direct from the Director" blog posts of previous years) that on Thursday, 16 January, the HBS director will come up with some information regarding the dates when the interview invites will be sent out.

Also, those who interviewed in R1...do you have any tips/advice? What are the expectations for the post-interview reflection?

This is premature, but I am curious: for those interviewed in R1, what were the HUB cities you could interview at?

When is the actual day we find out? I haven't actually received any email from HBS since applying. Nothing on when they will release the news on interview invites.... has any one else got this? Starting to get a bit worried!

Hey, don't be worried. HBS doesn't email applicants on the decision dates. That said, they do provide a few decision dates on the "Direct from the Director" blog.

Feb 4, 12pm EST is when R2 applicants will hear on whether they will be invited to interview or released from the process. Goodluck!

Can anyone shed some light on recommendation? Both my recommenders who work with me directly didn't go to HBS. However, I know this HBS alumni who thinks highly of me but doesn't work with me. Is it worth it to ask her for recommendation to HBS?

Hey everybody, need some help. We’re finding out whether we’re into round 2 on Tuesday. I’m leaving for vacation on the 19th of February till March 1st. Does anybody know for how many weeks the interviews run for? Ideally I’d like an interview date before or after my trip (that is, if I’m not released obviously).

Thanks! I couldn’t find much info online.

Hi bb,

Is it possible to get a copy of the data in decision tracker? (it can be anonymized of course). The last 5 years of data would be ideal.

I want to create a graph that shows distribution of results by GMAT score. So GMAT score would be on the x-axis, and number of admitted/denied would be plotted on the y-axis.

E-gmat did a similar analysis (link below), but they only had ~200 data points for HBS. I believe you would have a much larger sample if you combined the last 2-3 years from Decision Tracker.
https://e-gmat.com/blogs/good-gmat-score-for-harvard-business-school-hbs/

MBA Data Guru also does something similar (link below), but it doesn't show sample sizes at all. So its difficult to tell how representative those numbers are. Small sample sizes could really throw off the results in something like this.
https://www.mbadataguru.com/blog/mba/mba-interview-probability-for-top-schools-by-gmat-and-gpa/

I think the Avg GMAT score for each school can be misleading if you are considering to apply, but not sure if you stand a chance. This chart would show a more complete distribution of applicant scores. Additionally, it would show if the Adcoms have a cutoff/preference for scores. It could be applied to any school.

Let me know if this already exists somewhere. Thanks.

To all Round 2 applicants, our fates have already been sealed by now. Tomorrow is Monday and I guess all the decisions will be uploaded by tomorrow and be available for us to see on Tuesday, 12PM ET. Best of luck to everyone !

Exactly 24 hrs remaining. I have run all scenarios in my head, figured out what I should have done differently, and internalised that most likely I'll get dinged. Waiting is still excruciating.

Probably to let themselves down if they get dinged and to be elated if they get an invite. Just be as positive as possible and hope you get something!

I’m old, I failed out of undergrad the first time, and I got my undergrad from a mediocre school, but I’m shooting my shot and hoping for the best!
