For those luck ones who got interview invites, we do have 5 HBS Interview debriefs from prior years:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/decision-tra ... riefs.html


Hope it helps! (you will need to filter them by school - right hand dropdown)

Also, if you are interested, Souvik who is a Ross 2nd Year Student is conducting a Chat to discuss Interviews in a text chat on Tuesday Oct 8th at 11 AM Eastern. You can join or post questions for him here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-ace-y ... 07095.html

Souvik interned at Apple and has gone through an application process at about 15 schools, most of which invited him for an interview, so he has done quite a few MBA interviews. He has also been interviewing like a maniac at various tech and consulting companies in the past few weeks (don't get him going about it)

Nope -- it is definitely not the deciding factor -- just one more piece of data for them. We've had clients feel like they nailed the interview (for many schools, not just HBS) who were ultimately denied, and also clients who felt they bombed and were admitted. So just be yourself and feel great that your odds went up from 11% to 50% by getting the invite! Congrats!

Hey guys, so I was wondering - for HBS, is the interview the deciding factor on the final admit? Does that mean that if you get an interview and ace it, you should technically get an offer from HBS, or will they still review your entire application again and potentially decide to ding you even in such a case?

Anyone seen or heard of a whatsapp or Telegram group for R1 candidates who have interviewed or waiting to interview? Seen a few for a couple other schools and wondering if anyone started one for HBS to swap interview experiences or other information.

I am not a big fan of WhatsApp groups (personal info and everything). But I do think there's value in setting up a chatroom on GMAT Club for HBS applicants. Would you guys be open to that? It will work on the GMAT Club app and of course the computer too.

Afaik Harvard does not give merit based scholarships. It’s only need based and starts after admissions

Hey guys, I noticed that HBS asks for a salary figure on the application. What figure does an entrepreneur who does not necessarily earn a regular monthly income provide?

If you can annualize out what you make (doesn't matter if it's not paid in regular intervals), I would go with that figure.

If you're not earning anything right now, that is also fine. Put the actual comp numbers in (they check these in the background check, so try to be as accurate as possible) and then use the Additional Information field to BRIEFLY explain your situation, including your ownership/equity in the firm, etc. This is a common situation, so don't worry about it at all!

Hello Experts. I am applying for the R2. Please kindly help me on some questions:
1) I plan to write the essay and Post-MBA goal separately, means they don't really relate to each other. Do you think it is okay? My plan is:
- In the essay: I will try to show Adcom who I am; how I overcame difficulties and how such experience affect to what I am today; and how the experience affect how I lead (I am from an ethnic minority group in a developing country, had to work all the time during my college to earn my tuition & living fee but finally landed a government scholarship to support myself)
- In the post MBA goals: I plan to tell them about a technological project that I have planed for a long time with my friend who is a scientist. In this project, I will take part on the business strategy side. We have earned agreement to join us from 30+ scientists around the world and from some influential people such as a very well known astronaut. We also gained some significant funding from Europe to train our scientists as well. This project is to help providing the advanced technologies to my own country to improve people's lives. The project is still on planning stage and still needs lot of skills/expertise to make it happen so I thought I need an MBA for this purpose.
So as you see, the essay and my goal are not really related so I wonder if it will be a question mark to the adcom. I am thinking about showing the adcom different aspects of myself but please advise if I should make them connected.

2) I know 4 langues and English is my 4th. My TOEFL is okay (108/120) but my GMAT is much lower than the HBS's average (only 650; Q was 49 so maybe not terrible?). My question is can my academic performance cover this weak point ? (I graduated as valedictorian from Undergrad program which is Economics; 2/3 of my courses were in math related such as Econometrics/ Calculus/ Statistics/Business game/ Finance etc and all were A or B grades)

3) I am already 34 years old. Will it be a problem ?

4) I have a Master in Finance already and have 9 years experience in this field. Will it be a pause to adcome such as: maybe he doesn't need an MBA ...?

I am sorry if my questions sound like I am bragging out about my app but I just want to get as more specific advice as possible. I've finished almost everything for the writing now and in the re-reading/revise process so still have time to correct where I need to. Thank you a million and good luck to everyone!

I will move this to spam soon, but i’m curious. Why would you promote this Wharton event on the HBS 2022 forum?
