Laura MacLean Reviews

Company: Gatehouse

Laura is a graduate of Harvard Business School (HBS)—and a former gatekeeper of the highly-selective program itself. During her 13 years as a member of the HBS Admissions Board, Laura reviewed applications from candidates from a wide range of backgrounds and conducted more than 1,000 interviews. For three of those years, she lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she not only interviewed candidates but also supported the school’s marketing efforts to attract the very best applicants on the West Coast. Laura started her career at Morgan Stanley in its Investment Banking Division. After graduating from HBS, she transitioned into strategy and marketing through roles at Gap Inc., a Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical company and Gillette. She then joined HBS’s admissions team and used her broad set of experiences to evaluate competitive HBS candidates. More recently, Laura tapped into her passion for baking by launching a home-based French macaron business. Now, baking is just one of her many interests, in addition to skiing, tennis, and volunteer work.

HBS Interview Prep

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by school email address [?]

I worked with Laura on mock interview/general interview prep prior to my HBS interview. She was extremely helpful and thoughtful. My mock interview with her was nearly identical to the actual interview, and her feedback was constructive and insightful. Furthermore, it was clear that she had done significant work to prepare for the interview and was well up to speed on my entire application. With her help, I was accepted!

For background context on my profile - I graduated with a 3.9 gpa from an ivy league undergrad and worked in big 3 consulting then PE investing, and had a 730 GMAT score.
