Hello,

I just got a rejection email from HBS for the round 3 admissions process even though I thought I had a pretty competitive profile. Did anyone else get accepted/rejected by Harvard?

I wish I could find out on what basis my application was rejected so that I could work on my weak points for the next round.

Best,
Minhas

Minhas,

I am sorry you didn't hear good news today. lf you want to send me an email, I would be happy to do a ding analysis to tell you what likely went wrong with your application. Now is the time to prepare for round one, so it is the right time to do this analysis.

My application got rejected as well. I send HBS an email for the reason , but I got an automated email stating they won't provide a cause of rejection.

I'm so sorry you didn't hear good news. As I'm sure you know, round 3 is notoriously competitive. I was initially rejected from HBS and successfully reapplied two years later with a much stronger profile. If HBS or any other top school is your dream, don't give up. I do think it's worth investing in a ding report from an admissions consultant who can help you identify areas for improvement and give you a realistic assessment of your chances. Best of luck!
