HBS Admissions Interview Update


On Friday Harvard Business School’s Dee Leopold posted a brief update on the HBS admissions blog regarding the admissions office’s plans for Round 1 interview invitations. The key takeaway is that Harvard is not yet done sending out invitations, although the number of remaining invitations is certainly dwindling:

I know I promised an update about interviews. They are in full swing on campus and elsewhere. We are still sending out interview invitations — maybe 50 or so more may go out before December 15 — plus waitlist invitations to some of those who have not received an interview invitation. In terms of “where” these interviews might be held, we anticipate they would likely take place on campus in Boston during December or via telephone.

We also want to share with you the list we just compiled of the undergraduate schools represented in the last three classes at HBS.


If you don’t receive an invitation by December 15, all is not necessarily lost. On October 22 Leopold posted that around 100 Round 1 applicants may go straight to the waitlist without an interview. Obviously this is not what you were dreaming of when you submitted your application, but know that there still may have a shot if you don’t get invited to interview!
