  • Nick’s “stats,” and what approach Erika and Nick took to his MBA application positioning
  • What Nick thought was the most important part of the process
  • Nick’s essay topics (and what Erika steered him away from including)
  • Nick’s advice for other applicants, particularly those with a military background like his
  • An in-depth description of Nick’s interview experiences with both Harvard and Stanford
  • Nick’s time at HBS, including the switch to virtual classes due to COVID-19
