Good question and thanks for your answer workout, is the activity for this time of the year for other B-school threads at par with previous years, or there seems to be am overall drop?

RajaHuli
Are MBA applications to B schools down this year for the class of 2023? What do you guys think?

According to gmatclub decision tracker, HBS had 325 applicants in Round 1 last year for the class of 2022.
But this year, for the class of 2023, it has 136 applicants as of today, the last day of Round 1 deadline.

A similar pattern can be observed for other schools as well. Does this mean applications are down compared to last year? or will more applicants update on gmatclub decision tracker at a later date?

Following is the comparison of the number of posts made(in the past week) last year vs this year across top schools. Notice, these are the posts made in the entire school's forum and not just the Class of 2023 topic/thread. I see that the numbers are pretty comparable to last year.

I am still researching colleges. I will apply in Round 2. I will update the decision tracker when I finalize colleges.

Still no blog post about when they’re releasing interview invites / dings. Losee posted this info last year on Sept 25th and even earlier in previous years. Anxiety levels are rising...

uggh I know! Part of me just wants them to release the invites/dings without the heads up though- I feel like the anxiety will be even worse in the days leading up to it.

I'm just operating under the assumption that invites will come out the week of the 5th since they said "early October" - though I agree it would be nice to have confirmation of that.

As people are not able to see the post for some reasons, I am just posting it completly:

Maybe you are finding, like I am, that time is harder to track in a pandemic. Some days stretch on for what feels like weeks, and some weeks seem to pass as quickly as a day. I remember as an applicant that the time after submitting my application moved very slooooowly—it is hard to wait.

The good news is that the next steps in our application process will unfold next Tuesday, October 6 at noon eastern time. In your application status page, you will hear one of three things:

Invite to interview – this is good news!
Further consideration – Also positive! This is a small group of strong applicants that we ask to wait with us until Round 2, at which point we will review your application again. More info on this process will be shared with you directly if you receive “further consideration” news.
Early release – unfortunately we are not able to move you forward in the process. Our hope is by letting you know this news early on in the process you can move forward with other plans.
As a reminder, we will conduct all interviews virtually this year. You can expect the same fun, engaging conversation with a member of the Admissions Board.

To everyone who has applied—we have been inspired by your stories as we read your applications. Thank you for your interest in HBS. And good luck with just one last week of waiting.
