So HBS R1 interview invites came and went on Wednesday. Unfortunately I was not fortunate enough to receive one. I am a slightly disappointed but strangely not as disappointed as the radio silence after the first wave. I guess the writing was on the wall. I am still really glad that I applied though because nothing ventured nothing gained. Also with it being my first submitted application, I learnt an awful lot about myself and what I wanted out of an MBA and, dare I say it, life. Thanks for the lessons but HBS, I bid you adieu.
The real test now is with my other R1 apps. By the end of this month I will have a much clearer position about where I stand. I have already started mentally preparing myself for the possibility that I receive no interview invitations from all three of my R1 schools. It is important to quickly regroup and have a plan in place for R2 since there won’t be a huge amount of time left till those deadlines. My motto now for the rest of the application season: hope for the best; plan for the worst.
P.S. To those who received interviews at HBS. I wish you the best of luck.
P.P.S. HBS, hope you enjoy my $250 donation 🙂 I am sure it will go towards educating some remarkable people
