HBS R1 Giveaway – Get $100 Amazon Gift Cards:

It’s Always Better in a Community

We know, we know: you’re waiting for that email from the HBS Admissions Office. Are you one of the few lucky applicants to be invited to an interview? Or are you stuck on the waitlist? Or worse, did it just not work out this year? No matter what the result is, one thing’s for sure: we’re an entire community to back you up throughout this process!

You’ve submitted their stats on our MBA Watch Harvard Business School. You’ve attended our admissions chats. You’ve posted your questions on the Comment Wall. The beauty of it? The journey only now begins!

To ease the transition, Beat The GMAT is giving away $100 Amazon.com gift cards!

The Prizes

  • $100 Amazon.com gift cards to be randomly distributed to 5 R1 applicants who get notified by HBS today (Wed, October 26)

We’ll be randomly giving away $100 Amazon.com gift cards to 5 Beat The GMAT members who receive a notice from HBS today (Wed, October 26) and update their profile. All you need to do is spread the news you got from the Admissions Office and you could also get a chance to celebrate (or console yourself) with some well-deserved shopping!
