It sounds as though most of the people who have received invites thus far submitted on or near the deadline. Could it be they are releasing invites in REVERSE chronological order?

Just about to post that blog entry...

So missing the cut today isn't a death sentence, but there's not much more than a glimmer of hope. Congrats to everyone who made it -- hopefully gmatclub will round up a few of the 100 extra invites.

Today we sent out about 750 invitations to interview. I think we will ultimately send around 850 by the notification date, January 21.

I can't predict when this additional 100 invitations will go out nor to whom. It is possible that candidates invited in the next few weeks will not have extensive options to interview in hub cities; we will make every effort to work with them to schedule an interview which is convenient.

The Admissions Board continues to review written applications and discuss cases until the January notification date.

I also anticipate that around 100 Round One candidates who have not been interviewed will be invited to accept a place on the wait list in January. As their cases are further considered, they may be invited to interview.

We are trying to be as transparent as possible about this anxiety-producing process. I hope I am clear in my continued message that this is a "selection" process designed to bring a talented and diverse mix of students into the classroom. There are no hard and fast rules and there are many more qualified candidates than we have capacity to admit.


wow that says it all , sorry guys

A shot to the gut but I'm glad HBS is transparent in the process.

Does anyone have any guesses no how many HBS applications come in during R1, R2, and R3 respectively?

My guess was:

3000 apps in R1 - 750/3000 = 25% interview rate
5000 apps in R2 - 750/5000 - 15% interview rate
2000 apps in R3 - 300/2000 = 15% interview rate

To quote Howard Cosell:

"Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!"

...at least I have an interview elsewhere to prepare for next week.

Looks as though I'm out for the count. I thought I had a pretty good shot at HBS and figured I would at least get interviewed. Time to focus on the Wharton and Chicago interviews. Best of luck to you all!

my guess would be 35% R1, 45% R2, 20% R3... although I'm just making those numbers up

adcom at an info session said they are projecting ~10k apps this year
