HBS Looks Ahead to Next Application Season

300px-Inside_a_Harvard_Business_School_classroomDon’t worry—if you’re applying to Harvard Business School (HBS) in Round 3, you haven’t missed the deadline. It’s next week, May 13th. But the school’s admissions committee is already thinking about the Class of 2018, according to a recent post by Director of Admissions Dee Leopold.

If you are a prospective applicant also thinking about the Class of 2018 at HBS, some words of advice from Leopold: “I would encourage any potential Round One applicant who would like to see the case method in action to come now since class visits in the fall don’t begin until after the September deadline.” Class visits continue through mid-May, and there is still sign up availability, she notes.

The schedule for on-campus information sessions will change to every Monday and Friday at 2 p.m. beginning on May 8th. These sessions, conducted by members of the admissions team, do not require advance notice. Campus tours will also be offered, beginning on May 8th, at 1:15 p.m. every Monday and Friday. No advance notice is required for these either.

For those of you dying to get started on your essays, HBS will post next season’s questions on May 15th. Recommender questions will post the same day. The complete application will go live in mid-June, and the Round One application deadline will be September 9th.
