I worked with a client who was admitted this year after being dinged last year. His experience was weak but the extra year made a difference. Tell your friends not to lose heart (my client wasn't even granted an interview last year!). HBS is very competitive - hopefully your friends will all find a business school home soon!

I wouldn't be able to do their overall profiles any justice but... one had a 740 gmat... the other two had high 600's like 680/690 range...

Best of luck to everyone! Hope there are some admits....I don't know anyone that's been admitted this year so far.
