In at HBS!

When I applied to HBS in round 1, I was given "further consideration." This bumped my app to round 2, meaning I applied 6 months ago. It was a long wait, but it was beyond worth it. This has been an incredible journey filled with stress, anxiety, happiness, and triumph. From the days and nights I spent agonizing over the GMAT, to now being accepted to Harvard Business School, I feel beyond fortunate.


  1. Congratulations!!! Thank you for sharing your experiences. I was wondering if you could give some advice as to how the HBS essay worked out for you. Did you by any chance use it as an opportunity to explain why MBA and why HBS? Thank you for the help!

    1. I highlighted what personally motivates me and how that has influenced my career decisions. Dee Leopold has repeatedly said not to overthink the essay. Go with your gut; that's what I did. If you are planning to apply to HBS next year, keep in mind that the essay topics have changed every year for the past three years.

    2. Thanks for the response! Wishing you the very best!!! :)
