HBS essay for 2016-2017 is out! (deadlines posted too)

Post
Harvard Business School has announced its essay question for 2016-2017, and it's essentially a return back to the topic they used in previous years:

"As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?"

(Thank goodness they got rid of the lame "introduce yourself to your section" topic from last year. But! The fact that they went back to (essentially) the OLD essay topic can provide some important clues for what NOT to write about THIS year...

...I've drafted up a quick blog post explaining why here)

Also, the deadlines remain pretty much the same from last year, with Round 1 being super-early:

Round 1: September 7, 2016

Round 2: January 4, 2017

Round 3: April 3, 2017


ApplicantLab users had almost 4x the admissions rate last year as the overall applicant pool -- I'm looking forward to this season!
