HBS Update on Round 2 Applications

Harvard Business School interviewThe final wave of Round 2 interview invitations from Harvard Business School will go out on Wednesday, February 1st at noon EST. According to a new update by MBA admissions director Chad Losee, the online scheduler for this wave of interview invites will go live immediately.

As a reminder, whether you interview on campus, a global hub city, or via Skype, your odds of acceptance are the same as members of the admissions board conduct all HBS interviews.

The admissions team will also send out release notifications on Wednesday, and Losee takes a moment to reassure these candidates that HBS welcomes re-applicants, noting that “about 10% of each class is composed of students who didn’t get into HBS on their first try.”

If you’re planning to reapply if you don’t get accepted this year, here at SBC we recommend you treat the re-application process as a blank slate instead of reusing old essays.  It’s always a good idea to paint a new self-portrait based on the experiences you have gained during the past year.

Also, a word to future Round 1 applicants: Spring is a great time to plan a campus visit if you want to see the case method in action, as there’s limited availability for visiting a class in the early fall.

Good luck to all the Round 2 applicants out there, as well as those on the HBS waitlist.
