I don't think there's any advantage to submitting before the deadline. I remember reading either on their website or in a chat that they don't start reviewing applications until the deadline anyway, and applications are read in a random order.

Our class profile has been posted: http://www.hbs.edu/mba/profiles/classprofile.html

Doesn't look too different from past years except we have 942 students in our class. Apps were up about 5% so acceptance rate stayed the same at 12%. 47% of class is within 3 years of college graduation (40% last year). We have the most international class though... 36% vs. 33% of past years.

funny that yields are slightly lower at stanford and HBS as compared to the past, i think more people may have actually went with the school giving the the most money versus simply going to the best brand

If I had to guess, I'd say that the 490 admit has started a successful NPO whose mission is to continuously spawn other NPOs throughout the world.

Would anyone happen to know if one can pursue language classes while attending HBS? I've been learning Mandarin for two years now and would like to continue to do so, albeit in a formal setting. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any information regarding this...

Don't think so. Maybe through cross-registration (but you can cross-register only during EC).

folks,

For HBS essay 1 (3 substantial accomplishments and why), what is a recommeded strategy for word limit for individual elements (what and why) within an accomplishment. Does it make sense to have 150 words for what the accomplishment is and 50 for why one views it as such?
What did folks who got in last year do?

much appreciated.

Thanks

My split was more like 60/40% per accomplishment

The HBS career vision essay:What is your career vision and why is it important to you?.Couple of questions:

1) How much space should be devoted to "how" I am going to get there--Short term goals etc.
2) If not here,then where can I address the "How HBS is going to help me get there"?The only other essay topic that I could think of was the Cover Letter Topic.

1) How much space should be devoted to "how" I am going to get there--Short term goals etc.

I had 2 sentences for short-term (what = 1 sentence and why = 1 sentence), 1 sentence for mid-term (just what) and a paragraph on long-term (what and why). Overall, I focused on what I want and why and kind of "ignored" how.

2) If not here,then where can I address the "How HBS is going to help me get there"?The only other essay topic that I could think of was the Cover Letter Topic.

I didn't address it at all (HBS doesn't ask, I don't answer). Look into Sandy's site and posts - he discussed it at some point and advised that it's not needed to address why HBS.

To all HBS hopefuls and dreamers... My best advice is: don't let anybody tell you that you have or you don't have a shot at HBS. As long as you've stats in the ballpark (GMAT +/-700, reasonable GPA) try. It's about how you present yourself and all the talk that "too old", "too young", "too much work experience", "too little work experience", etc. is - in my opinion - useless. The only way you know is by trying.

inspiring. thanks garbus222

21yr old dreamer here, throwing my name into the hat for R1.

Is there no longer an optional essay available? Is it the additional information section (500 characters)?
