Harvard Business School Admissions Interviews

Last week Dee Leopold, Harvard Business School's Director of Admissions, posted a short message on the HBS Director's Blog about the timing for Round 2 admissions interview invites:

On February 9 we will send out invitations to interview. The invitation will come in an email from HBS MBA Admissions and will contain detailed instructions about how to sign up for interviews both on campus and in hub cities. Please be assured that if we see you haven't signed up for an interview by the end of the week, we will contact you by phone...thus there's no reason to be anxious about lost emails, etc.

Shortly afterward, I'll update you here as to how many invitations have been issued and how many we expect will go out between February 10 and the April 2 notification date.

Note the second part of what Dee says. While a majority of interview invites will likely go out on Feb. 9, don't worry if you don't hear anything on that day. The HBS admissions office will be working through thousands of applications, and they may not get to yours for another few weeks or more.
