<![CDATA[Introducing the Global Opportunity Fellowship (GO:Africa)]]> Wed, 31 Jan 2018 03:00:00 EST

Congratulations to all who received interview invitations yesterday for Round 2. We look forward to meeting you in cities around the world, as well as here in Boston.

We have a big announcement today: Thanks to the generosity of HBS alumni, we are honored to pilot a new fellowship for students graduating from HBS. We’re calling it the Global Opportunity Fellowship, or GO: Africa. The new fellowship will provide generous financial support to students who want to make a difference working on the continent after HBS, by supplementing the salaries they earn on the continent for the first five years after graduation. You can learn more about GO: Africa here and here.

<![CDATA[Wave 2: Invitations & Release Notifications Go Out Tomorrow]]> Mon, 29 Jan 2018 01:00:00 EST

​Our final wave of Round 2 interview invitations will go out tomorrow, January 30, at 12:00 PM EST. Both interview invitations and release notifications will be available for viewing on the Application Status page.

Unfortunately, we can’t move everyone forward to the next stage of the process. We know this can be disappointing and wish we could interview more of you. Thanks to all who have shown interest in HBS and applied this year.

For those of you invited to interview tomorrow, congratulations! Keep in mind that the interview scheduler will be open immediately upon notification, so it’s a good idea to have your schedule over the next month handy. Remember that you should interview in the location most convenient to you—the process and odds of admission are the same for all our interview locations.

<![CDATA[Wave 1: Invitations have gone out!]]> Thu, 25 Jan 2018 21:00:00 EST

At noon today, we sent out our first wave of interview invitations via email and on behalf of the entire Admissions Board, I wanted to say that we can’t WAIT to meet you!

You have the opportunity to shine in the interview process. We want to get to know you beyond what we can learn on paper. The best advice I can give is to be yourself. Each person who comes in to interview has a different experience and background. Bring your individual perspective, your voice, to the table.

If you received an interview invitation, the interview scheduler doesn’t open until tomorrow, January 26 at 12:00 noon EST, so that you have some time to think about where and when you would like to meet with us. Just remember that interview slots and locations will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Next Tuesday, January 30, the remaining one third of our interview notifications will go out. I'll write again on Monday with more details about that.
