How about including undergrad major also? That would be interesting to see what the class makeup looks like.

Well I guess they know what they're looking for. But thanks. Good luck.

Out of curiosity, would any of you that got interviews be willing to post your stats (GPA, major, GMAT)?

I'd post mine, but I doubt anyone wants to know the stats of those that didn't get an interview...

I didn't. I guess I'm not what they're looking for. Congratulations to everyone else though.

Are you sure this is true of MIT-Sloan? I have never heard or read that. I have however read that Tuck and Kellogg will consider quant and verbal scores from different tests.

Go for it. Let us know what they tell you.

Re: interviews and int/int. inclined students

this mon 28 july news sounds very comforting, and i wish i could call myself and check it out. i think peace of mind would make spending maybe 1 a minute worth it. maybe im a bit ahead of myself but has anyone heard what "defray" the costs means really? because that would probably cost the school a...

Ya, it's anyone's guess. I personally don't think it will be until the end of next week though. But that's just me.

Re: Just one more piece of demographic data

It looks like I'm pretty similar to the others posting here. I'm a white male from a large public university studying in the sciences. I think the key to this program is extra curricular. It's easy for Harvard to pull smart people, but difficult to find people who are incredibly accomplished at suc...

Where do you have citizenship? I'm really no expert, but I think the admissions committee would take citizenship into account. But I could definitely be wrong.

by the way, i'm a psych major. i hope that counts enough as a "science" or "liberal arts" if that is what hbs is looking for. anyone else in here a psych major? Oh, and for what it's worth, I think a psychology major perfectly fits the description of HBS's desired applicant for the 2+2 program. So ...

i don't think it could hurt to try to send in better gmat scores after the deadline, as long as you are not too pushy. you may just want to send them another official report (official reports are often received after the deadline, which is perfectly acceptable to harvard, so an additional official ...

Re: G-NOT

scarter - I got a fairly low GMAT score but didn't even think about taking it after July 1st. Did you ask admissions if they would accept post-July 1st scores, or are did you take it again hoping they would? I think he's taking it with the hope that the admissions board will accept it, but he can a...
