Pretty sure the Skype interviews are video. Otherwise no need for Skype -- you could just do it by phone.


Didn't know there were "audio only" interviews..

You can see it here... http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/Pages ... ector.aspx

An excerpt from the blog posted on September 18, 2013

Quote:
Round One interviews will be conducted between October 21 and November 22. Not all dates will be available in all locations. In addition to on-campus interviews, we will be interviewing in New York City, Palo Alto, London, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, and Santiago. Candidates who cannot travel may be accommodated via Skype.


Note the sentence in bold.

Skype = video + audio

I think it will; if you look at the previous year (harvard-2013-hbs-calling-all-applicants-134055.html), the invited to interview and interviewed total is 60 out of 335 R1, which is 18% of GMAT Club applicants. As long as quality is roughly the same, wave 2 should be just as big as wave 1 (at least i'm hoping this is true)

Word on the street seems to be that the bulk of PE megafund associates have received invites, which suggests that the bulk of people who'll receive HBS interview invites have already received them. Not to be pessimistic, but if you look back at last year's thread, there was a lot of fuzzy, optimistic thinking very much along the same lines of this year's thread comments, so I'm skeptical (but hopeful) that this year's Wave 2 will be sizable.

Based on last year's thread, it seems like best way to know how big Wave 2 will be is to ask those who've received invites roughly how many "spots" were up for interview when they signed up for times, but I don't know if that is easily visible this year. In any case, as the wiser folks have noted, this is all pointless speculation that doesn't actually increase our chances tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone!

With the interview scheduling, once a slot was booked, it disappeared from the list so unless the first person on counted every slot, it would be impossible to know. Different locations had different numbers of available times and it's impossible to know how many slots were available at each time in each location. I have a feeling they do this intentionally.

If it helps, the subject of the email was "Interview Invitation" so hopefully that saves you 3 seconds of anxiety before you actually open the email...

Best of luck everyone!

Best of luck to everyone today!

For those not receiving invites, hold your head high, cue up some Chumbawamba, and move on. There are great success stories both inside and outside of HBS, and they all start with great adversity.

How is that vague?? That's exactly what it says. Though if you mean it's vague as in it doesn't say whether you will get an invite, yea, right, exactly that's what it is -_-
