On Wednesday, December 14, 2016, Harvard Business School will be sending round-one notifications to applicants who went through the interview process this fall.
50% to 60% of interviewed applicants should receive an offer from HBS.
Harvard Business School’s admissions rate has been pretty steady in recent years, and we do not expect major changes at this stage following the appointment of Chad Losee as HBS Admissions Director. When emails go out at noon, Boston time, on Wednesday, more than half of first-round interviewees should receive a positive answer. These lucky applicants will have more than eight months to get ready for their HBS journey, and their main challenges going forward will be to stay focused at work, and plan their attendance at the Admitted Student Weekend in Boston.
