HBS Posts Essay Questions, Deadlines

There has been a flurry of postings this week on Harvard Business School‘s Admissions Blog, with news that the school will now accept either GMAT or GRE test results, but only the Internet-based Test (IBT) version of the TOEFL or the IELTS as tests of English as a foreign language for foreign applicants.

Today, the school has posted the essay questions and application calendar for the class of 2012.  The Round One application deadline is October 1 ”” two weeks earlier than last year ”” and notification is in mid-December. HBS has also pushed the Round Two application deadline back to January 19 while keeping the notification date in early April.

“Both of these moves are attempts to shorten the wait time for candidates… we really do understand how hard it is to wait,” says Admissions Director Dee Leopold.
