R2 Interview Invitations

A big thank you to all of you who applied in Round 2 for your interest in HBS and the ways in which you are making a difference in the lives of those around you. We have enjoyed getting to know you through the application process so far.

Next week, on February 3 at noon eastern, you will receive an update via the application status page on the next phase of the process as we extend invitations to interview to a portion of those who applied. As we announced previously, all interviews will be conducted via zoom this round as we continue to navigate the global pandemic.

If you are not invited to interview, we will release you from the process next week so you can move forward with other plans. We sincerely thank all who submitted an application to HBS.

Applying to the HBS Class of 2023

The last chance to apply to the Class of 2023 (entering fall 2021) is only two weeks away: January 5, 2021 at noon Eastern Time. Good luck to those of you working through your application between now and then!

HBS is closed from December 21, 2020 through January 1, 2021. We will reopen on January 4, 2021. But we are here for you! We will be monitoring ApplyTech@hbs.edu if you have any technical challenges with the application related to a Round 2 application; we will respond to other messages after the office re-opens.

As we close out a challenging year on many fronts, the need for leaders like you is more apparent than ever. Thank you for your interest in HBS!

Round 1 Decisions; Round 2 Deadline

After what I know is a long wait, tomorrow is the big day for Round 1 applicants! At 12:00 noon Eastern Time tomorrow (Dec 10), we will release Round 1 decisions via the Application Status page. A little over half of those we met during the interview process will receive an offer of admission. To a portion of those not accepted, we will extend an offer to join our waitlist.

For those considering Round 2, the application deadline is a little less than four weeks away on January 5, 2021, at 12:00 noon Eastern Time. You can apply here. Please remember that we have increased the size of the next two incoming classes to about 1,000 students each (learn more here), and we look forward to getting to know you through the application process. Best wishes over the next few weeks as you put your applications together.

Giving thanks

In the U.S., the Thanksgiving holiday is this week, and on behalf of the HBS Admissions and Financial Aid team, I want to share our thanks with you.

2020 has been a challenging year around the world. Given the pandemic, we have missed traveling to your home towns and countries to meet you in-person and share more about HBS. And, we have missed hosting you on the HBS campus for class visits, campus tours, and interviews.

Despite all that, we have enjoyed meeting many of you through our online events and, for those who applied in Round 1, through your written applications and interviews. Thank you for your flexibility and enthusiasm for connecting in these new ways. In a world with so many challenges, we are heartened by how you are leading in your organizations and leaning in to your communities.

Round 1 decisions come out on December 10 at noon Eastern time, so just a few weeks away. For those of you considering Round 2 (the final deadline for the Class of 2023), you still have plenty of time before the January 5, 2021 deadline.

Happy Thanksgiving!
