<![CDATA[Looking Ahead to the Class of 2021]]> Wed, 18 Apr 2018 08:00:00 EST
We are taking a small break in our Round 3 / 2+2 programming to look ahead with you to the Class of 2021—this is for those of you who will be applying in the next “application year”.
We’ve set application deadlines for Round 1 (September 5, 2018) and Round 2 (January 3, 2019), so I wanted to put those on your radar now. You can start working on the Class of 2021 application in early June 2018 when we open up the application, but in the meantime feel free to start thinking about the one required essay, which has remained the same: “As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA Program?” On Wednesday, June 6th, we will hold an optional webinar walking through each element of the application.
For those of you who recently applied for our 2+2 program, we are really enjoying getting to know you through your applications! I will post again on Friday, April 20 to let you know specifics about interview invitations and other important dates. And, for our Class of 2020 Round 3 interviewees, we can’t wait to meet you soon.

<![CDATA[Round 3]]> Fri, 30 Mar 2018 13:00:00 EST

Monday, April 2 is the Round 3 application deadline! Remember to submit all the application materials by noon eastern time, and remind your recommenders to submit your recommendations by the same time as well. Given the tight turnaround time on Round 3, we start reading right away and need a full application in order to consider you.

(We get that you have limited control over your recommenders and will allow recommendations to come in for a little while after the noon deadline, but don’t tell your recommenders this! It is still your responsibility to make sure everything is in on time.)

As I mentioned, things move quickly in Round 3. We anticipate sharing interview invitations (or “early release”) on April 11.

To those of you finishing up applications over the weekend, good luck with the final push! If you run into any challenges, here’s how to get in touch with us:

  • By phone: +1 617 495 6128 March 30 (today) until 5pm Eastern and then starting at 8am Eastern on April 2
  • By email: slatesupport@hbs.edu we’ll be monitoring this throughout the weekend and answer any urgent questions (any non-urgent questions will be answered next week)

<![CDATA[Round 2 Decisions + Upcoming Deadlines]]> Tue, 20 Mar 2018 03:00:00 EST
I know I don’t have to remind you that tomorrow’s the day we release admissions decisions. You will find them at noon eastern on your Application Status page. I know it’s hard to wait the last 24 hours. Best of luck and thank you for letting us get to know you.

• April 2 – Round 3 - this is the last time to apply for the Class of 2020
• April 10 – 2+2 - deferred admissions
• April 18 – Peek Weekend
• May 1 – Summer Venture in Management Program
