After last week’s Round 1 deadline, HBS published on the Admissions Director’s blog updates and instructions for candidates who submitted applications:
“Interview invitations will be sent out via email on October 9 and October 16.
Candidates invited to interview will receive detailed instructions about the sign-up procedure. The interview scheduler will go live the following day.
On October 16, candidates who will not be invited to interview will be notified of their release.
A group of Round One applicants, possibly 100-150, will be placed under “further consideration.” These candidates will be re-viewed in Round Two and either be invited to interview or released on the Round Two timetable.
Round One interviews will be conducted between October 21 and November 22. Not all dates will be available in all locations. In addition to on-campus interviews, we will be interviewing in New York City, Palo Alto, London, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, and Santiago. Candidates who cannot travel may be accommodated via Skype.
I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: Interviewing on campus is a great opportunity to get to see life at HBS, but the location of an interview is not a factor in the selection process.”
