Dinged! Now moving on to Round 2 applications while waiting for decisions from other schools. Haha!

Chin up, fellas! You're better than a four-letter word (ding).

Just got the rejection letter from HBS.
And no news from anywhere else as well , so guessing that will be it there as well. Can't say am not dissapointed.
But I guess noone is just willing to give me a chance , wasted so much hard earned monies at a point when I'm about to be jobless soon .

Thanks Guys for the reports!
If you can, could you please update your status in the profile.
It helps everyone this year and in the following years to keep track of the trends and statistics.

P.S. Earlier today the flood of people has put the server into the red territory, so apologize for the slow speed. We're planning to upgrade soon to beef it up.

As an observer on this thread, I just have to say this bloodbath is quite discouraging and depressing. I wanted to say sorry and good luck to all of you who were dinged. Keep up the positive vibes for your other applications!

Thanks, that cheered me up. On an ordinary forum, I'd make it my signature.

I'm still glad I tried it, otherwise I would harry myself to eternity pondering the "what if...?"

Maybe I'll reapply... at least that GMAT is good for five years.

I did not apply to Harvard. But, I can empathize with those who were not invited.
All I can say is, some of you guys have 'stellar' profiles. And will eventually get into a great school anyways. For being in that 9% - a lot depends on not who you are, but how you are perceived (you can hardly change that).

I'm reminded of a quote that I read earlier today itself: "Don't worry about failures. You only have to be right once " - Drew Houston (co-founder, Dropbox)

I'm not sure how many of waitlisted guys would be happy/sad. Anyways, would you get to hear anything from adcom before the next wave of interview invites go or only on the next interview notification date?

Cheers

The vast number of HBS interveiws are done by the full time members of the admissions committee. The Menlo Park interviews are done by

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.).

I'm not an applicant this year but I plan to apply in 2 years to HBS.

I've just read the 'Dinged' & 'Interviewed' threads in GMATclub and P & Q. What I want to say is all of you have stellar profiles and I'm sure if HBS doesn't take you, another great school will!

Good luck for the rest of the application season!

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?
