They should have an essay system for the normal lottery!

Or

1a) Please provide an example of a time when you had to make a choice between two equally important obligations. How did you decide which obligation deserved your attention? b) Did you try and predict other people's reactions to your decision? If so, how accurate were you? Why do you think you were or were not accurate in your prediction? c) Reflecting on this experience, how do you think being \$20 million wealthier might have aided in your decision making process?

from what my friend at HBS told me, HBS has 900 students in 10 sections, each section is assemebled so as to provide each group with maximum exposure to diversity, talent blah blah.. having said that she also told me HBS is famous for attracting royalty, the elite of society..so she told me a recommendation letter from someone big, a well know personality goes a long way, even if that person doesnt know you that well..

harvard looks for pedigree, so a lot of well achieved students who apply to HBS get dinged cause they fail this litmus test.

So knowing that I am no pedigree..i am just playing lottery
