Greetings from Boston. Definitely the topic of the day is SNOW and everyone here is busy making Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc. depending on the strength and length of the storm.
Yes, we know that we are scheduled to send out Round 2 interview invitations on Wednesday. We have every reason to believe that will happen on schedule. If we need to delay, we will let you know via this blog, a general announcement on the admissions website, and also with a voicemail recording on our general phone line.
Here is some GENERAL (non-storm related) information about Round 2 interview invitations:
Back to the snow. Still too early to tell, but the Admissions Office may need to be closed tomorrow, January 27 if the snow is severe and travel to and from work is prohibitive. We plan to manage the general email box - email@example.com - remotely. And watch the admissions website and this page for updates.
Most important...if you're in the reach of this snowstorm, stay safe and warm and take care of those around you. And say thanks to all the workers out there who will be doing so much.
Happy to report that the Round 2 application deadline went smoothly and we are now in hibernation-mode and happily reading. (Yes, it's true - it's zero degrees here today - we love it and you will too!)
Here's the scoop on "what’s next":
Interview invitations: Will go out in two waves - January 28 and February 4. Please don't waste time speculating about how many in each wave. And please don't send us any additional materials or ask others to do so for you.
Interview dates: Interviews begin on February 12 and continue through early March. Detailed information will be included in the invitation email.
As always, hope this is helpful.
Hope your holiday break was as restorative and festive as ours.
We're back. And we're ready for Round 2.
Please note that I know it’s not really the "last minute" - it's all relative. For some of you, it may seem like plenty of time 'til noon tomorrow - for others, maybe it does feel like the clock is ticking.
For ALL of you, here's a re-cap of what happens tomorrow:
We'll get out info on when interview invitations will be extended as soon as we can get a handle on the size of the Round 2 application pool - probably by Wednesday mid-day.
We do know the hub cities where we'll be conducting interviews - Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Mumbai, London, Paris, Menlo Park, and New York City.
So...we're here if you need us via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone, 617-495-6128.
We're getting ready for a holiday break (yesssss!), but we know you'll be busy so...
Our office (and all of HBS) will be CLOSED from December 24 through January 4. We re-open at 9:00am EST on Monday, January 5, 2015.
But, before we go, we'll be busy this week making sure you're all set for Round 2.
We will not have telephone support over the break. We'll be responding to technical application support questions at email@example.com over the break, but response time may be longer than normal business hours.
And while we don't advise waiting until 11:00am (the eleventh hour!) on January 6 to hit the submit button, we don't operate on a first-in, first-reviewed basis so if you have questions, it's fine to wait until we're back on Monday, January 5.
We've had a great 2014 in Dillon House. We've had two new babies, said a tearful but happy farewell to two long-term staff who have sailed off to next adventures, launched one of our favorites to a new area of HBS, and welcomed four great new hires who already feel like family.
We're looking forward to 2015.
Sending you all our warmest wishes for a safe and happy season.
Peace on earth.
