Hi all -

Since there's A LOT of stress and rumors about this (and how COVID deferrals will affect this year's application cycle/odds overall), we dedicated last week's episode of our B-Schooled podcast (I'm the host!) to it and I would highly recommend you check it out. Should help put your minds at ease. It's Episode 11 and can be found on all major podcast apps.

If 200 applicants have deferred to 2021/22, are we assuming a lower acceptance rate next year or are we expecting a lower # of applicants due to the incoming economic crisis? Will they perhaps open more spots?

If you had watched the MBA Spotlight, you'd know that HBS is planning to increase the number of seats this year AND next year. Well, this should not affect your chances.

Also, HBS acceptance rate is pretty low either ways.

Just to note - "actively considering" is not the same thing as planning to increase, there are additional considerations that will probably take place, like strain on resources, accommodation availability etc, so don't bank on it. That said, even if they don't increase class size, if you were going to get in for sure before, that's probably the same after - the competition from increased applications in your consideration pool is likely to have a bigger effect than 100 seats already being taken.

Actually they are synonymous phrases
I didn't say "will increase"
Anyhow you can rely on HBS.

HBS has a broad alumni Base and is actually one of the very few schools that respects its alums.
THAT SAID.....
Did you notice that After Trump's completely selfish move, HBS and MIT sued Trump administration for a stupid decision that will affect the interest of their students?

Harvard Applicants are requested to attend the webinars by the panels of their particular industry
I would like to tell you there are brilliant, never before seen Webinars.

These sessions are very informative and are a great way to show your research to HBS

And for the love of god, add your GMAT Scores in the decision tracker please? It seems like 92 people are applying to HBS without a GMAT.
HBS is not waiving the GMAT.

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to print the HBS application out or print it to a PDF? I'm seeing that an option was historically available on the application screen prior to submitting it, but I only have a "submit" or "save" option.

Thank you

There will be an option to print pdf after you submit too.

Thanks! I was hoping to print it out to review, but if that’s not an option, I’ll use the app window instead

Quick question to those who are stating working at a VC as their post-MBA goal - what the hell are you picking from the 'Function' drop down menu
(I looked at HBS's Career Data & Statistics page to see how what they labelled VC/PE as but its a different category in itself, and the option is not available at the application (Post-MBA Goals page))

There's an "Other" option

You see I have a cross functional role between construction and real estate. Can't choose one!!

So I chose other.

Just following up on this one to say not to worry too much about those crazy dropdown options. The schools don't have control over them (the form vendor does) and there are many missing that would be relevant for MBA applicants. So just pick what you think is closest/best and don't give it a second thought, because the adcom won't!

Hi all - My recommendor would not be able to submit on time. Does HBS accept a day or two delay for the recommendor?

I don't think so. I guess, you have to ensure that your recommenders submit the recommendation on time for your application to be considered in Round 1. You can also drop them an email and see if that helps in anyway.

That's good to know. Did Harvard mention this on their website?
