As most anyone who applied to Harvard Business School (HBS) in Round 2 is likely aware, the first wave of interview invitations is scheduled to go out tomorrow. HBS Managing Director of Admissions and Financial Aid Dee Leopold took to her Direct from the Director blog yesterday to assure those anxiously awaiting word that things are on track.
“This post is, quite frankly, not a news flash, but more like a reminder of what we’ve said before,” she wrote, reiterating that interview invites will begin rolling out from Dillon House tomorrow at 12 noon Boston time.
The second wave will go out on February 3rd, which is also the day when those “released” from consideration will learn their fate. Applicants to the 2+2 program, too, will receive word one way or the other on the 3rd.
In an earlier post, Leopold shared the hub cities where Round 2 interviews will be conducted: London, Paris, Mumbai, Dubai, Tokyo, Menlo Park and New York City. “Remember, where you choose to interview has no bearing on the evaluation process—all of our interviews are conducted by members of the Admissions Board,” she wrote yesterday, adding that even those who interview in a hub city should feel “warmly invited” to take part in Campus Interview Days in Boston.
Note: DO NOT sent additional materials to HBS. “We consider applications complete at the time of submission and we will not be adding information to anyone’s file,” Leopold stressed.
She ended with an acknowledgement of how hard the waiting is. “But please channel your energy into good deeds or work or family—or a million other things besides sending things to us!”
For those of you optimistically looking forward to an invite tomorrow, now’s a perfect time to download the Clear Admit HBS Interview Guide or scroll through past applicants’ accounts in the Interview Archive.
