你好,hswang, 非常高兴你能提供一个这么好的机会。我的问题是,关于HBS. 是不是这所学校最注重或者只看重申请者的leadership?

Hi and thanks for your inquiry, Crossmoon.

Yes, HBS does care **a lot** about leadership and if you don't demonstrate leadership, you are not getting admitted regardless of GMAT scores, GPA, etc.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it is all they care about even if they give it a heavier weighting than the other top programs. For one thing, they obviously care about integrity. (The fact that 5 people got kicked out this past year due to application discrepancies is testament to that.)

Other important factors are academic qualifications, i.e. you must demonstrate that you can handle their curriculum, so the GMAT and transcripts are also important.

Finally, having a good story that includes airtight reasons for why you want an MBA, why you want to attend Harvard, etc is critical to gaining admission to HBS -- or any other selective b-school for that matter.

Sincerely,

H.S. Wang

Thanks for your follow-up inquiry. I'm not sure if it's also on their website, but I got it from one of my friends, who knew an HBS admissions officer.

<>请问我这种情况是否可以进入 a top 25 MBA program?我的GMAT是600,GPA是2.7。但是我可以搞到很牛的推荐信,另外我的工作经验很棒的。</P>
<>Many thanks!</P>


Thanks for your inquiry.

Yes, it is possible to get into a top 25 school with your GPA and GMAT. It is the exception though rather than the rule and you will need to demonstrate great work experience with a rapid career progression. You will also need to mitigate any concerns about your ability to handle the coursework in b-school.

Letters of reference are helpful if handled properly. Otherwise, they won't really help you or hurt you since the majority of the other applicants will have similarly favorable references written about them.

The good news for you is that the b-schools give about a 35% to 40% weighting to your academic qualifications, i.e. your GPA and GMAT.

Best of luck with your applications!

Sincerely,
H.S.Wang

Wang, 我有个问题,想弄清楚。 How important is it to apply in R1, particularly for HBS. 如果我赶第一轮有些仓促,那么是否最好等到第二轮呢?第二轮的申请是不是竞争性有所降低呢? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your inquiry.

As a general rule, it is always more advantageous to apply in the first round than the second. There are more openings for the incoming class and the admissions committees are trying to fill seats. At the most selective schools, round 2 is when the class becomes rounded out and the admissions officers really focus in on getting the right representation from demographic groups such as NY I-bankers and Indian IT applicants.

There is no truth to the urban legend that the second round is less competitive than the first round. The admissions officers know what percent of good applicants apply each round and they adjust their targeted number of admissions offers to reflect this.

Finally, a good applicant will make a convincing case for why he/she wants to attend XYZ b-school and why he/she has been proactive about wanting an MBA for a long time. Applying in round 1 will certainly help signal this point much more clearly than applying in a later round.

In conclusion, if you have a good application put together for a top school, it will behoove you to submit it earlier than later.

Best of luck with your applications!

Sincerely,
H.S. Wang

<P>Hi, HSWang</P>
<P>我GMAT考了760,但是AWA却很惨,只有3.5。你能告诉我这对于我申请第一流的美国商学院有多大影响吗?</P>
<P>谢谢

Lander</P>


Thanks for your inquiry.

I wouldn't worry too much about the AWA score. Fortunately, the AWA does not carry nearly as much weight with the admissions committees as the verbal or quantitative scores. Furthermore, your verbal score has already helped mitigate the 3.5.

Well-written essays and good admissions interviews will help to further mitigate any concerns about your communication skills.

Best of luck with your applications!

Sincerely,
H.S.Wang

<P>我还有一个问题,本科学校如果不是很好,对申请top school的影响大吗?我只是毕业于一所在国内都不是很有名气的重点大学,你看我是不是应该放弃申请牛校的努力呢? </P>


Thanks for your inquiry.

This is another urban legend that, unfortunately, continues to propagate itself. There is an ounce -- and only an ounce -- of truth which is the admissions officers know grade inflation can be a bit rampant at some schools and therefore a 3.3 from a top-tier undergrad may be viewed similarly to a 3.5 in the same major from a lesser-known school.

If you are looking at statistics that show a large number of applicants to the top schools come from famous universities, bear in mind these two points:

1. These schools tend to attract a disproportionate amount of talented overachievers.
2. The feeder companies for the top b-schools (think the top consulting firms and investment banks) tend to recruit at these schools.

If you have the same GMAT, GPA, extracurriculars, and work experience as another applicant and the only difference is that you went to Tibet Universityand the other applicant attended, say, PKU or Princeton, you would both have the same chance of being admitted to a top b-school.

We have seen this time and time again with our own clients.

Best of luck with your applications!

H.S.Wang
