Good luck everyone!


It'll feel just like warm apple pie...

FYI, for your R2ers... no strict cut-off... I'm guessing that means anything up until tomorrow morning is ok.

Round Two Deadline
Date: January 06, 2009

Today is the application deadline for Round Two. It will hardly be a news flash to tell you that it's probably the busiest day of the year in Dillon House.

There may be heavy server traffic - especially late in the afternoon - so please don't panic if it takes a while to submit your application. Be patient...or, better yet, be early! The deadline is at 5pm, but I predict that we will not have a strict cut-off - we will do everything reasonably possible to make sure your application is considered in Round Two.

We'll all be answering the phones - and I know it's reassuring to hear a human voice - but please realize that we have no way of checking on the details of your individual application. And remember, your online status WILL NOT CHANGE to "under review" or "received" after you hit the submit button.

And, most important, congratulations to all of you who completed the application. We hope that the process of self-reflection has been valuable...and memorable.

It definitely has been a very valuable experience. You can't help but think about all of your past, present, and future life choices while completing that app.

Congrats on the R2 submissions guys! Hopefully they keep up their R1 interview invite approach for R2, which really made things easier on the nerves.

Hey - I'm in for R2 as well. Unfortunately, I just discovered this board - would have been a huge help as I was struggling through the essays.

And I would have known to fill out GPAs for every year, in addition to the cumulative. oh well.

I don't think the schools can outright discriminate based on age. What was your work experience? If you came from IT or finance, then I can see why it'd be more competitive. I'm hoping to get into HBS with a 690, but I come from a under-represented industry (entertainment).

well.,.best of luck ! yes, after 680..i think its all bout the essays.. the impression i got from the adcom was that it was more competitive if i was older. they indicated that 3 years is the sweet spot in terms of experience..but 60% of the class had more than 3..so i dont think they discriminate..i think its just more competitive for the older folks !

From the HBS blog, for your little brothers and sisters!

--------------------------------------------------------
Date: January 12, 2009

I'm happy to announce that the essay questions for this year's 2+2 applicants are up on the website.

This year we will be accepting results from both the GMAT and GRE for 2+2 applicants. More detailed information about this will be on the website soon.

If you're a current college underclassman, please explore the 2+2 Program and consider whether it may be a good idea for you. All of us who read applications and interviewed candidates last summer believe that this was an eye-opening experience for us - the energy and talent had us all truly impressed. Last year's admits will be gathering here on campus in late June . . . we'll be doing some interviews and podcasts that I think you'll find interesting.

Back to the Round 2 applications . . . .

Dee

--------------------------------------------------------

Hmmm... back to round 2 applications? Are R1 decisions made and HBS is just waiting another week to see how R2 looks?

What rubbish. Why can't they just reject us who have no chance right off the bat?

Kudos to Wharton on that.
