One of the most prestigious business schools in the US – Harvard Business School – has already released their application dates. Those of you gunning for admission at the premier institution need to pull up your socks now.
The Harvard Business School Application Deadlines for the class of 2018 are:
Round 1: September 9, 2015
Notification of decision: December 2015
Round 2: January 6, 2016
Notification of decision: March 2016
Round 3: April 4, 2016
Notification of decision: May 2016
Students need to apply in only one round, one time in an application year. Harvard Business School encourages applicants to send in their applications as early as possible. Also, it is better to apply in the first or second round as there will be limited opportunities available in the third round. In any case, all the applications need to come in before April 4, 2016 by 12 noon otherwise they will not be considered for admission.
There are great advantages of applying early to Harvard. Need-based HBS fellowships have a deadline and applying in round 3 may leave you with very little time to prepare for the application. Same is the case with external scholarships. For students requiring additional coursework, English proficiency and visa applications, sending in applications early can give you more time to work on the application.
