A mix of a 1 week vacation around India and endless replaying of the interview in my head, (it probably gets more distorted every time I try to recall it). And then telling myself "oh interview is only part of it" and hoping....

That is, posted from my mobile that I'm using while on vacation in Jaipur, so sadly tied to GMATclub forums am I!

Question for Sandy:

You do a lot of mock interviews. Any evidence that the acceptance rate of the kids you helped is higher?

I honestly have pretty terrible memory when it comes to most things. I can't hold a 10 digit phone # in my head for longer than 10 seconds, for example.

But when it comes to this interview and the horrendous waiting, I can still remember almost verbatim everything that I said, and every response from my interviewer. There's also an alternate world I slip into where I still like to daydream of how I could have improved some of my answers. But the truth is, even if there was an improvement on one or two responses, it would barely translate into a +1% improvement in my overall odds.

Since it's all beyond my control, here's to hoping that my profile fills some unique niche in the class.

Hey guys,

Trying to get some of your "precious" thoughts over here. Would it be way too late for me to apply for R3 at HBS with the profile listed below? If it's not too late, what do u guys think my chances are w/ profile below? Seems like my GMAT score isn't as competitive as others' are. Tried to raise it with 2nd trial but ended up increasing only 10 points by hitting into a bump during the Verbal part. I'm open for any encouragement/advice/critiques. Thanks in advance!

I had applied to the joint program but my priority was definitely HBS. Is my HKS rejection going to effect my HBS application? The websites say the applications are independant but the only information they share is final outcome. Hard to believe. Does anyone know of some admitted to one program but not the other if they applied to a joint program? Sandy jump in here if you're got some insight...

Perhaps, then, there is the cosmic opposite: those with middling all-of-the above who equally inexplicably DO get in.

Intern Joined: 05 Dec 2009 Posts: 38 Schools: Duke Class of 2012 Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 4 [0], given: 16 Re: Calling all HBS Fall 2010 Candidates [#permalink] ### Show Tags 28 Mar 2010, 18:12 [facepalm] ---er, Wharton with full scholarship? Why is this even a discussion? Unless HBS gives you some significant$ (ok, a little bit of money might still tip a scale to some folks), a Wharton MBA for exactly \$0.00 (ok, yeah, whatever, some costs, nothing worth discussing) has an ROI that I can't calculate (and I got a degree in fi-nance, as they say).

Wharton is a huge admit, congrats, seriously. HBS is not so much greater that you should walk away from the full scholarship. Go my friend, go to Philadelphia and have a great time

Decision Time,
I personally think you should take the HBS offer if you get it. Wharton is a great school and you can't go wrong with Wharton, and the full scholarship makes it extra attractive, but the value of a Harvard MBA cannot be understated and it will be worth the investment many times over. It is the ultimate MBA and I would never consider passing it up if I ever get it.
Just my 2 cents, and goodluck in whatever u choose to do.

The best thing to do is simply wait and see if you get into HBS. They might make your HBS/Wharton decision quite an easy one

I know, I know. However, I do think it is fair to assume that there is a 60% chance that I get into HBS (the admit rate post-interview). And, my HBS application and interview were stronger than Kellogg and Wharton. So, more likely than not to get in.

Probably over-thinking this and should wait to see what April 6th brings.

Definitely just wait and see. I could be wrong, but it seems like it's too hard to extrapolate the success of getting into other schools with that of getting into HBS given that they are so focused on determining if you're an interesting addition to the classroom case discussion. Sounds like you're a stellar candidate though (and congrats on your achievements btw) so here's hoping that they make things interesting for you!

So how does decision day work?

Is it at the stroke of midnight as april 5 becomes april 6? or 12 noon? or 5pm? or some completely random time? All at once or piecemeal?
