Detailed information for interviewees will be included.

Thanks to all of you who engaged in this year's application season.

Round 3 Interviews

Greetings to all Round 3 applicants - here's the plan:

On Wednesday, April 22, we will send out both interview invitations and "release" notifications. We plan for this to be at 12:00 noon, ET. Therefore, all Round 3 applicants will be hearing something from us on that date.

Interviews will take place on campus on May 1 and May 4. Detailed instructions will be in the invitation. We will not be doing any interview travel this round.

2+2 applicants are strongly advised NOT to compromise their academic commitments in order to travel to HBS for the interview - we will arrange Skype interviews.

I think that's all the news there is!

Round 3

Coming into the home stretch for the Class of 2017 application season - today's the deadline!

12:00 Noon, Boston time. Don't panic if it takes a while to submit - we'll keep the system open for a while.

And we'll continue to accept recommendations for a couple of days.

We will begin to review your application when we have received one recommendation - it's your responsibility to keep checking your application to see that both have been received.

We'll get information out tomorrow about interview days/notification!

To Round 2 Interviewees: What’s Next?

Greetings from Dillon House.

Many of you heard the "What's Next" talk when you were here on campus for your interview. Does that seem like a long time ago?

We'll be ready to release decisions tomorrow at 12:00 noon, Boston time.

Here's a recap of how it will work:

  • No phone calls ahead of time. While we love to give happy news, we don't want to create an anxiety zone where you are watching your phone constantly. We know you've been out-of-control throughout much of this process - we can give you the control of where you are and with whom when decisions go out.
  • After the decisions, we will be making congratulatory calls. We'll also send a poll to make sure we set up conversations that would be most helpful to you as you are making the decision to join us in the fall.
  • There will be candidates asked to join the waitlist and we definitely plan to be making offers to a significant number - but we can't be exactly sure when. All waitlisters will get detailed information about "next steps" in the decision letter tomorrow.
  • We DO mail hard copy admit letters - these are the "official" offers of admission. These will be mailed in early April.

We're all set...and want to say thank you one more time to everyone who is waiting for tomorrow's news.
