This review is for HBS
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2018
Loving my experience so far. The section experience is probably the highlight. My classmates are incredibly accomplished yet down to earth. I don't see anyone being competitive. Academic experience is more intense than what my friends at other schools are reporting, but I view that as a real differentiator and a big reason why I chose HBS. Case method classes can be nerve-racking yet invigorating. The first year is very structured. You are told what classes to take and where to sit. You have the same seat in the same classroom with the same 94 people for every class. The professors rotate in and out. It helps you get to know your sectionmmates better.
Don't only rely on the on campus options. If you know what you want to do before school starts, start reaching out to Alumni early. The internship I wanted didn't recruit at HBS but the alumni working at the company got me in front of there right people and I was able to secure an internship. The HBS degree might sometimes be a target on your back, people assume things about you, so when doing off campus recruiting it's really important to convey your interest and show how serious you are about that particular role.
