It's that time of the year again for college seniors and others who are eligible to gear up to apply to HBS's famous 2+2 program. 2+2 allows admitted students to defer their offer of admission between 2 and 4 years while they go get experience working, essentially hedging any career risk they might take.

There are actually a few other programs like 2+2 geared towards college students and recent graduates. You can check out some of the top ones here: The Best MBA Deferred Admissions Programs (to apply to when still in college)

So feel free to post your profiles, connect, and seek and offer advice. Good luck everyone! The deadline to apply is 10 April 2018.

TIPS FOR HBS 2+2
- Only category where R3 is preferred (after you know your Senior Semester 1 grades and perhaps your post college work plans).
- Be frank in why you might get training at an i-bank or MBB prior to getting experience relevant to your career plans between that and B-School.
- We must assume you have done well academically and have great extracurriculars, so you can distinguish yourself with "real" work experience.
- They are impressed with early sense-of-self and the greater world (but no need to focus on impact).
- Why you need an MBA (and one from HBS) is perhaps more important than for regular candidates - but "enlightenment" here is key.
- And it is still all about whether you have the talents, values, and determination to potentially really make a difference in the [business] world!

The GMAT score range for past 2+2ers is 610 - 780. If my GMAT is in the low 700s, is it still worth a shot? Below the median of 730. I have had international working experience (internship) plus have a non profit, but am from the UK?

Not too PC - but higher scores come from North Asians, Indians, quant folks. If you are not from this demographic - low 700s works well. Your grades, selection of classes, and grade trends are more important (along with internships, extracurriculars and your personal story, of course).

Yes, the recommendations have to come in before the deadline which is at 12 PM eastern time tomorrow. Hope this helps. Are you applying last minute? If yes, I am also sort of applying last minute. Currently re-reading my essay. lol

Anyone know when the invites are sent out? Is it around the same time as last year?

Last year the deadline wasalso April 10th, they received notifications April 17th and interview invites/release on April 19th. So probably about a week from now, but they haven't announced anything other than "probably in late April"

Edit: last year the deadline was actually April 3rd with the normal R3 deadline. This year it was offset a week from the R3 deadline. Not sure if this changes the eta, but perhaps.

What's the 'received notifications April 17th'?

They let applicants know if they were going to get an interview on April 17th last year. On April 19th they sent an invitation to schedule the interview or a notification for release (rejection).

Edit: I misread something. They did not receive notifications on April 17th. They only received interview invites or release notifications on April 19th.

Last year, the deadline was 3rd April. The email said "mid-April" and decisions were posted 19th April. So 2 week turnaround. That would mean we should hear back around 24-26th this year right?
