Where in rural KY? Just curious. My family is from there and aunts/uncles live there. I'm now in NJ/NY area, but still travel at the holidays.

Flying in to Lexington and staying in that area for a day, then driving over to Morehead and down to Hazard, then over to Bowling Green and Leichtfield areas before flying out from Nashville. It is going to be a busy week with the most miles I have ever put on a rental car at one time!

I'm from the rural South and used to towns that are little more than a caution light....but my boss, he has never been there and has lived in SoCal his whole life (other than when he attended Booth)....I think the culture shock will be fun to watch

You'll be right in the same area as my family!

Haha - yes - I think culture shock is putting it lightly for some of those areas. Should be a fun time!

So I'm in an odd situation. I'm a science major at a top 3 Ivy league school (HYP) and I'm applying to HBS 2+2. I took the GMAT cold (no time to prepare) and got this wacky result...not sure how I bombed the quantitative section and aced the verbal, if anything I would've expected the opposite. 2 questions:

1. Is this good enough, combined with a 3.5+ GPA, to be stat-worthy of a school like HBS, without being someone famous?

2. Should I consider either re-taking for a 750+ or trying the GRE one last time before the final round of apps?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

At 12pm eastern, you'll get an email that says to check your status on applyyourself. If admitted, you should get a call within a week from someone on the admissions committee or a current student.

I hear you on that - these last couple days will be some of the most anxious I've had in a while

I had trouble sleeping before my interview and I think tonight and tomorrow will be even worse. One thing is nice though - you know exactly what time the decision will come. Waiting by the phone on Tuesday would be more than I can handle.

Good luck guys - we are nearly there!

I think I logged in over the weekend and still saw the "this won't change until 12/12" statement. Logged in today after seeing everyone's comments here and now it is gone (i.e.: I only see the post-interview status and app for admission status). That's interesting that the "this won't change until 12/12" on your profile was gone as of last week. You know what it must mean... that we are all looking into this way too hard!!!

I just have to remember to breathe and actually get some sleep these next two nights.

This post made my day lol

Applying to round 2, i visited HBS november 29th. Anyone from round 1 get an interview and did not visit HBS? and did anyone from R1 who did visit HBS get an interview ?

Most of the people i talked to at HBS said they visited before they apply. Even though HBS, states you don't need to come, I really think it was such an important component to talk about the school's unique qualities.

I did not visit HBS before applying and received an interview. I went to the school for my interview.

Totally false. Definitely interview on campus and sit in on a class if you are selected but a visit beforehand is definitely not a factor.
