Harvard published two updates on its admission committee’s blog for the sake of first-round applicants ahead of the deadline on 16.9.
In terms of the Additional Information section, HBS emphasized:
“Here’s when you should use this space
  • To explain any extenuating life circumstances that may have impacted your record at school or work.
  • When you are unable to submit a recommendation from a current employer. This happens all the time just use this space to explain the situation and how you selected the alternative recommender.
Some advice – don’t use this space for:
  • Another essay!
  • Even worse: another school’s essay cut and pasted here!”
Related to interviews, they explained:
“We’ll be sending interview invitations out in mid-October  –  exact dates for each location will be announced later.
On Campus (weekdays), NYC, Palo Alto, London, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, Santiago.
Note: in Round 2 we will be in all the above cities except Sao Paulo and Santiago.
We will offer Skype interviews to candidates for whom travel is not possible. More details after September 16.”
Good luck!
