HBS Announces Timing of Interview Invitations for Round 2

If you applied to Harvard Business School in Round 2, get ready for some big application news from the school on Wednesday, February 1st at noon ET. In a post to the Direct from the Director’s blog, the school shared the following details:

“Next week, on Wednesday, February 1 at 12:00 noon Eastern Time, everyone who applied in Round 2—or received a “Further Consideration” decision in Round 1—will receive an update via the Application Status page.

“There are two possibilities:

Invite to Interview – you’ll receive additional information regarding the interview process on February 1; you’ll then be able to sign up for an interview on February 2. We are offering both in-person and Zoom interviews.

Early Release – unfortunately, this means we’re not able to move you forward in the application process. Our hope is that by letting you know as early as possible, you can proceed with other plans.”

Of course, MBA LiveWire will light up on that Wednesday with applicants reporting their invites. And if there are any snags or delays in the release, reports of those will surely surface on LiveWire as well. You could choose—optimistically—to spend your waiting time preparing for an interview. The Clear Admit HBS Interview Guide can give you an important head start. It’s packed with vital, up-to-date interview preparation guidance, including commonly asked questions and advice on how to form strategy around the post-interview leg of the process.

And as always, remember that the Clear Admit Interview Archive also offers a repository of applicant-submitted details about the interview process.

Best of luck!
