FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Round 3 Notification Details
Round 3 Notification Details

Here’s the way things will happen on Wednesday for Round 3 candidates. Decisions become available at 12:00noon Boston time (ET).

An email will be sent directing you to your application account. The email may take a few minutes to get to you, so you might want to go directly to the Applicant Status page on your accountany time after noon.

Decisions will either be:

• “Sorry, we don’t have a spot for you” and the letter you receive will give you dates/times for touchpoint calls.

• Waitlist - yes, there will definitely be a few of these. We hope these will be resolved speedily and we definitely will be making offers to some in this group. More details about waitlist management will be in the letter you receive.

• Admit - yay! Letters will include lots of details on what-to-do-next and how to get to the Prematriculation site.

Here in Dillon we’ll be on duty and planning a big drum roll at noon on Wednesday!

In for round 3! What a relief!
Reading these forums has been a lifesaver throughout this process without any friends in the same boat.

Hope others received good news today as well.

Getting started: The Class of 2017 [#permalink]

BOOKMARKED
FROM HBS Admissions Blog: Getting started: The Class of 2017
I’m quite surprised (ok, make that “happy” and “impressed”) at the number of inquiries we’re getting from those of you who would like to get started on the application for the class entering in August, 2015. So, with Round 3 Class of 2016 notification yesterday’s news, here we go.

This is what the (optional) “essay” question will be:

You're applying to Harvard Business School. We can see your resume, academic transcripts, extracurricular activities, awards, post-MBA career intentions, test scores, and what your recommenders have to say about you. What else would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy?”

Use your judgment as to how much to tell us. We don't have a right answer or correct length in mind. We review all the elements of your written application to decide who moves forward to the interview stage.

Why are we repeating this question when we usually dream up something new? In fact, I went on record last year as saying that we’d ALWAYS be changing the essay question. I was wrong. We liked it. When we look at the responses of admitted candidates, there was a wider-than-usual range of how folks approached it. Some are completely about professional lives, others barely mention work experience. Some are very brief, others are not.

And, sorry to repeat myself, but getting into HBS isn’t an essay-writing contest. If we were to publish 50 “essays that worked” and another 50 that “didn’t work”, I would challenge anyone to make a perfect distinction. It’s just one element of the application.

Now, on to recommender questions:

• How do the candidate's performance, potential, background, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples. (300 words)

• Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant's response. (250 words)

The application itself will go “live” in mid-June. I’ll post here when we’ve got a definite date. And please watch our website for both our in-person information sessions around the world and our informational webinars.

And finally, something you may want to know: Round One application deadline will be September 9, 2014. Interviews, by invitation only, will be conducted from mid-October through end of November. Notification will be on or around December 10.

Onward!

I was on vacation in SE Asia during the interview period, so mine was over skype.
Good luck with the waitlist!

Yes, it's a very active group. There is a link on the prematrc site. Depending upon where you're located, there are also several regional admitted students groups in addition to the main one.

Hmmm ok I guess I don't have access to prematrc site as a 2+2 admit. Do you know if there's any 2+2 specific page or at least a page I would have access to?

Thanks!!

A Sneak Peak at the Class of 2016 and some other things . .  [#permalink]

FROM HBS Admissions Blog: A Sneak Peak at the Class of 2016 and some other things . . .
Here's a sneak peak into the Class of 2016. These numbers will change slightly - there will be some “summer melt” and we hope to still be able to make a handful of waitlist offers. Class will end up somewhere in the 930-939 range. But this is how things look today. These are the barebones stats we capture from applications. Our admits are polled later so we can add some more colorful information about them. Those responses are still coming in so we’ll post here again in a couple of weeks.

We’re also planning on posting more information about how our GMAT and GRE scores break out - subscores, how many take each test, etc.

We’re on target to launch the Class of 2017 application on June 10. Until then, there simply isn’t a way to start an application online - so please don’t get frustrated. It won’t be long!

Hmm, I'm not sure about a 2+2 specific group. Do you have a pre-matric contact at HBS?

Thanks! It was a tough decision, but HBS made it impossible to say no. Looking forward to Boston in the fall!
