Not a bummer to me, I kind of already knew about it after the interview. I interviewed on campus. Personally, I did not feel click to the school. The interview experience was bad, not bad in the way that the interviewer grilled me, but bad in the way that the interviewer did not ask me any in-depth questions. I feel I did not get the respect that I deserved after all the hard work I prepared for the interview. The questions I got during the interview are superficial, for example: Can you tell me about your extracurricular activities? Of course, I answered well, but I was shocked when they asked the questions, didn't the interviewer study my profile? Didn't they read my application? I thought the interview would be an in-depth conversation. But anyway, congrats to everyone who got accepted. I do not want to sound cynical but just want to share my true feelings about my HBS application and interview process. After all, HBS is still a great school. Congrats to everyone who got accepted!
