Invitational Interviews

by ejh25 » Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:43 am
Has anyone whose applied round 2 (i.e. January applications) heard back about an interview yet?
The schools I'm curious about are Darden, Ross, and the Johnson School.

Haven't heard anything yet. My R2 apps were Wharton and Fuqua (Duke) with Arizona State left.

Hopefully I hear something from at least Duke soon. I shouldn't be worrying, but I am a bit.
700+ or bust.

Round 2 applicant to the Johnson School here. I got an invitation couple days ago and will be heading over to Cornell in a bit over a week.

I heard of one person who got an HBS round 2 interview so far. Anyone else heard from them?

An HBS R2 interview? I find that a bit curious. The director's blog on the HBS website wrote that the R2 interview invitations will be sent out on Feb 9th.

We haven't heard about any HBS R2 interviews yet. Best of luck!

Harvard's directors blog remarked that R2 invitations to interview were sent out yesterday, Feb 9. Does anyone know how strictly they follow their own guidelines? Has it been confirmed that they were sent out?

The director also wrote that they would be sending out 50-100 more invitations up until the final decision date in April. I don't really know what to think about this. I didn't get an invitation, and it seems like a long shot if you weren't selected in that first cohort. Does this mean I should assume a rejection?

HBS interview

by caramel3536 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 9:12 pm
I didn't receive an invite either. Maybe it's because of my sub700 GMAT score. I'm trying to be hopeful though.

I was lucky enough to receive an invite to interview with HBS. From my personal experience and what I've heard from others, all 750 went out almost exactly at noon on Feb. 9. There are supposed to be an additional 50-100 that will go out between now and April 2. Some have speculated that military applicants would receive interviews after Feb. 9 due to unique scheduling situations.

I had my Darden interview on Monday. It went really well. It was really close to being a perfect interview except for one point when I lost track of where I was taking the conversation. I dealt with it well and brought the conversation right back on track. Other than that I think my work experience really impressed my interviewer.
I really liked Darden and hope to hear back with an admit.

Is anyone aware of any stats showing the acceptance rate among those invited to interview at Darden?
