You can find my essay analysis for Fall 2009 Admission here. In my experience, my clients who succeed at HBS interviews go with their interview with a feeling of confidence predicated on having done careful planning. My clients who’ve failed the interview stage have generally done so because of related reasons: insufficient confidence and/or planning.
While these issues may be the same for just about any interview, the reality is that HBS admissions interviews are simply just more comprehensive than that of most other universities. Failure to take this interview sufficiently seriously is a recipe for disaster. 1. You need to know the application very as you will be asked by adcom about its content completely.
Review your complete application (not just job application, and essays, but everything including the transcript) very carefully and think about what your interviewer might request you to explain more completely. Remember: Anything is fair game. Assume that the weakest elements of your software shall be topics in the interview. Assume the worst-case scenario and become very ready to address their concerns.
Given the annual failing rate at HBS, if you have any academic weaknesses (low GPA, a weak TOEFL relatively, insufficient proof of a quantitative history), prepare yourself to address those issues. Be prepared to tell new stories and alternative versions of the stories you told in your essays. 2. The relevant questions you get will be specific to you. Most questions shall not be odd, however they may be unexpected.
- PING is successful to the desired IP Addresses. Windows Firewall has been disabled
- Ship r / c if: – the vessel carries more than six travellers for hire; or
- Since the majority of the liquid possessions of Neo900 UG are clogged, we had to prevent all advance buys
- If ready, then it might be deployed to production after OK from CTO
On the other hands, lots of reviews suggest that most questions are actually frequently occurring ones. See my previous post on interviewing. Be able to articulate clearly what you would like to learn at HBS and what you can contribute. Although it is important to have the ability to discuss command, don’t assume the interview will be entirely focused on it. The interviewer comes into play knowing what they want to ask you.
3. Assume there will be at least one question for which you may not be ready for. Don’t panic. Take a breath. Answer fully the question and do not become flustered. Be ready to answer questions in regards to a hypothetical case study, conflict with colleagues, and the latest book you read as these have all been reported frequently.
4. Adcom interviewers are friendly, but to the real point. They don’t really do stress interviewing exactly, but they will question you intensely. They will be taking records. Whatever you say can be subject to inquiry, so to speak concisely, answer questions precisely, and try to avoid voluntarily mentioning any topics that you really don’t want to speak about.
Assume you will be asking follow-up questions, so expect to have the ability to evaluate/explain in a great deal of depth. 5. Reported interview size for interviews is half an hour.

Write feedback, but do not send me email messages asking me to advise you on the application strategy if you don’t be thinking about my consulting services. Please, see my FAQ about the types of questions I shall respond to.
