Round 2 Interview Information from Harvard Business School

Director of Admissions Dee Leopold announced on her blog yesterday that Harvard Business School (HBS) plans to begin sending out interview invitations to round-two candidates on February 12th.

Her office will conduct roughly 800 interviews in this round, including interviewing some candidates who were placed on the waitlist as part of the first round, Leopold continued. “Most, but not all, of these invitations will go out on February 12th so that all invitees have equal access to locations and dates,” she wrote. But some may continue to trickle out up to and including on April 6th, the notification deadline for the second round.

Invitations will come in the form of an email from HBS MBA Admissions, Leopold wrote. The HBA MBA Admissions office will be closed on Monday, February 15th, for President’s Day, she advised. Following that, on Tuesday, February 16th, the HBS online interview scheduler will go live. Interview invitation emails will contain detailed instructions on how to schedule an interview, she continued.

As a reminder, HBS interviews are by invitation only. “We do not accommodate requests for interviews from candidates who are visiting campus,” Leopold wrote.
