Harvard Business School will consider only one application per year from potential applicants. All re-applicants, including those who were previously admitted, are required to complete the current application in its entirety. This involves creating a new application. While previous applications may be retained on file and consulted at the MBA Admissions Board's discretion, a reapplication must stand on its own merits as a complete and independent application.

A valid Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a prerequisite for admission. The GMAT or GRE needs to be test taken between the timeframes on the chart below.

    If you are applying in… Your GMAT or GRE test date must fall on or between

    Round 2 January 6, 2010 and January 6, 2015
    Round 3 April 6, 2010 and April 6, 2015

All re-applicants must pay the nonrefundable application fee. Re-applicants do not have an advantage or disadvantage in comparison to other applicants.
