HBS MBA Program MBA News and Announcements en-us http://www.hbs.edu/mba/ <![CDATA[Round 1 - Next Steps]]> Fri, 12 Sep 2014 14:00:00 EST

While you are happily back in your Real Lives, Dillon is in reading mode.

This is how the next stage of the process will unfold:

Interview invitations will be sent out via email on October 8 and October 15. Candidates invited to interview will receive detailed instructions about the sign-up procedure. The interview scheduler will go live the following day.

On October 15, candidates who will not be invited to interview will be notified of their release.

A group of Round 1 applicants, possibly 100-150, will be placed under Further Consideration. These candidates will be reviewed in Round 2 and either be invited to interview or released on the Round 2 timetable.

Round 1 interviews will be conducted between October 20 and November 21. Not all dates will be available in all locations. In addition to on-campus interviews, we will be interviewing in New York City, Palo Alto, London, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, and Santiago. Candidates who cannot travel may be accommodated via Skype.

I've said this before, but it bears repeating: We love having interviewees visit campus and will have a full day of get-to-know HBS activities, but the location of your interview plays no part in the selection process.

Onward.

<![CDATA[Round 1!]]> Tue, 9 Sep 2014 11:00:00 EST

Big day here in Dillon House! We're ready to go underground and start reading applications.

Everything seems to have gone smoothly, but if you've had any problems submitting, let us know.

Important note: We'll keep access open for recommenders for a couple more days. We'll begin to send your application out for review when there is one recommendation. The second can be added later.

Thanks to all...keep watching this blog for our Round 1 interview plans. We'll be able to give you a road map by the end of this week.
