The vast number of HBS interveiws are done by the full time members of the admissions committee. The Menlo Park interviews are done by
HBS 'case writers' at the Western Research Center in Menlo Park. OR they were --usually two gals named Hilary and Lauren (not sure if they are still there). London interviews were done by Adcom Members and occassionally by retired adcom members living in London (e.g. Ms. Lamb), New York interviews are done by Adcom members and sometimes by one-off ringer types, just for New York, on occassion, in the past, Shanghai and Mumbai interviews were done by contract "adcoms" with backgrounds in education, etc.
(TO WIT Pauline Jennett and Charles Allen --both of whom are not doing this any more, I believe). Variants of that may happen again this year,
altho someone noted that Eileen Chang (total adcom member and Dee lady-in-waiting) will be doing Shainghai this year, as she said in an info session. Bottom line: of 1800 interviews, more or less, well, my guess is, if you take out Menlo Park (which were done by experienced adcom types who were full-time HBS case writers) boy, over 1700 were done by Queen Dee Leopold and Her Merry Band of Dillon House Ladies and Occassional Man (Adam Chase, etc.).
/


Most helpful as always - thanks Sandy

thanks, actually non-adcom guy's name in above post is Charles Allison, and there is rumor he may be back in New York this year. He is famous for oddball questions like
What would your friends in High School say your strenths and weaknesses were, your friends in college?
and
What is something you want to stop doing, start doing and keep doing?

Thanks - this is helpful. I'm not sure if he's doing the interview, but I got an email today stating that if you are interviewing in new york over a weekend to contact charlie allison if you have logistical issues. Maybe he's just coordinating and not interviewing?

Anyone interviewing these next few days in NYC worried the hurricane will derail interviews? Do we think that HBS will cancel the NYC interviews at the Harvard Club if the storm gets bad?

There very well could be schedule changes depending on how bad things get. For those traveling throughout the east coast in the next few days, Amtrak is already starting to cancel service and there will likely be flight delays as well. Good luck and stay safe!

Edit: Looks like the MTA will make a decision regarding suspending NYC area metro, buses, etc on Sunday, October 28. Watch http://www.mta.info for more information.

Hi,

I just came across a post on Poets and Quants (on the hbs-round-one-intelligence-gossip forum) stating that applicants selected for interview received an e-mail from Dee Leopold...

Since I have not received it, I was wondering if all the Gmatclub members invited to interview did...

Thanks in advance

Neither did I - I went to read the post for myself - the guy provides the whole text and it sounds very much like it's going only to those interviewing off-campus. I imagine that's going to scare more than a few people ...

Probably won't be activated until your interview is my guess.


This link is activated now. You can see that your application is 'In Progress' again....
