Harvard Business School Admissions Director Looks Forward to Summer
Dee Leopold, dean of admissions and financial aid at Harvard Business School (HBS), shared a smattering of admissions updates in a recent post to her Director’s Blog. Class visits will soon conclude, the schedule for information sessions will shift, and the application for the Class of 2016 will go live at the end of May, she wrote.
April 30th marks the final day for class visits at HBS until next fall. “We don’t have any summer classes so there’s nothing to see!” Leopold noted. Beginning May 10th, information sessions will be held for visitors to campus on Mondays and Fridays at 2 p.m. Members of the Admission Board conduct these sessions, leaving plenty of time for questions. You don’t need to register in advance to attend an information session, but don’t expect to meet one-on-one with admissions staff on your visit. “We do not meet individually with candidates,” Leopold wrote. Also effective May 10th, campus tours will depart from Dillon House at 1 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays. No need to sign up for these in advance either, Leopold said.
Leopold and team will launch the application for the Class of 2016 at the end of May, but for those who want to mark their calendars now, she shared that the Round 1 deadline will be September 16th. “For 2+2 candidates only (rising college seniors), there will be a Summer Round with an application deadline of July 15th,” she added.
Finally, HBS will host a range of different presentations about the school and its MBA program this summer, though details about those events are not yet listed. “Watch the website for our schedule,” Leopold advised.
