TheEngineerMBA: HBS Invitation!

TheEngineerMBA is back, after a few months of scrambling between B-school applications, frequent travel at work, and working on personal development projects. In this blog post, I’d like to update everyone on where I am in the process now that nearly every application has been submitted.


 

Here we go!
I was one of the lucky few to receive an invitation to interview at Harvard Business School in the first week of R1 notifications (last week). To be honest, I was very prepared for a ding and this outcome definitely surprised me.

If you take a look at the comments on the poetsandquants HBS ding report (P&Q Ding Report), you will see that many VERY well qualified individuals were dinged. It must honestly be a crapshoot to get into these top schools, and though I certainly feel that I am a strong and unique applicant I am not disillusioned enough to think there wasn’t a bit of luck at play here.

I will be headed up to Cambridge in early November, and if I play my cards right I hope to be able to squeeze in an MIT interview on the same trip. I will update on my first impressions on HBS and MIT after they occur!

    P&Q and even GMATClub have been shown incredibly selective results. Any chance that we can learn your stats? We know from your last post that you work for a fortune 100 company in technology, but what about GMAT/GPA/Grad School or Undergrad school?
