Dee Leopold, Executive Director of MBA Admissions and Financial Aid at Harvard Business School, outlines four items she hopes you are extra careful about in your applications.
- Time: don’t make the admissions committee guess where you were and what you were doing for periods of time after college. Account for any gap longer than two months.
- GMAT Self-Reporting: input your subscores for verbal and quant correctly. Pay as much attention here as you do to the overall score.
- Re-Applicants: do not assume they are referring to your old application. Your prior applicant status is not visible to the Admissions Board unless and until you’re invited to interview.
- Number of Recommendations: Do not under any circumstances send in more than 3 recommendations.
