What Does It Take To Get Into Harvard Business School?

What does it take to get into one of the best MBA programs in this world?

This is a question for those who actually were accepted into this prestigious program.

I've heard that they accept mostly consulting people from Bain and McKinsey who are trying to switch into IB or PE (or Maria Sharapovas of this world). How true is this?

sharapova enrolled in an exec MBA course, she's not actually at HBS

for white males, it's generally going to be either top BB--> top PE/HF/VC or MBB. Also top undergrad with 3.8+ GPA and 750+ GMAT

How difficult would it be to get into any M7 from a mid-tier BB (BAML/Citi/CS) with a good GPA from a state school, and let's say 750 GMAT?

also nobody from MBB is going to bschool to switch into IB

Frank Slaughtery:

also nobody from MBB is going to bschool to switch into IB

This is false

Oct 19, 2016

i'm at an M7 and pretty sure 0 people who came in from MBB went to IB, I have seen IB to MBB though

Oct 20, 2016

@Frank Slaughtery I agree with you. I've spoken to investment bankers about possible routes into IB from MBA and was told repeatedly that Harvard is not the best course. Instead Booth, Wharton, Rice, Texas, etc were recommended over Harvard.

@AlphaDog56 your question is difficult to answer but I work with several people who have MBAs from Harvard and one common theme I saw is they all had military backgrounds or attended West Point and then served in the armed forces.

Oct 20, 2016

I can attest to this too, I know of a guy who started HBS this fall who came from a pretty normal background (you would never think he would go to HBS), but went to the Air Force Academy which got him into LSE, which provided him with the pedigree needed for HBS.

The fool thinks himself to be a wise man, while the wise man thinks himself to be a fool.

Oct 20, 2016

HBS and Wharton are best for PE right?

Oct 20, 2016

H/S are the best, then W/B/C in some order. Your Pre-MBA background matters a lot more than where you go to MBA though for PE placement.

Oct 20, 2016

From the few people that I know at HBS I'd say it helps if you have something unique about yourself. One of my mentors was an immigrant from South America and got into banking -> PE -> HBS -> PE and really was a different candidate than most of his peers who may be from the Northeast, went to Penn, worked in consulting, etc. Also would recommend joining any of those diversity programs that partner with B-schools. I think ML4T is one and I'm sure there are others. I have read on here that the 2+2 program prefers diversity candidates and non-business or econ majors. If you can, try to apply to SVMP.

@Xepa probably knows a thing or two about HBS because he goes to a M7 and went to SVMP at HBS.

Monty, I'm not sure you know Brady's situation. I don't think this helps.

We need to prove that anybody with a good attitude can get into a top five school. All this will prove to Brady is that you're "elite".

This is just not true. You can't just want something, you need to GET it for yourself.

Illnni, I respect your willingness to look beyond prestige and see how "Great" a candidate really is (I do the same), but sometime you take it too far. This is one of those times.

Interesting proposal. i don't think this bet really makes sense for me since I think you have a legit shot given your unique background and experience.

How about this. If i get into either HBS or Wharton, I will personally fork over roughly 3K for a trip for you and your wife. If I don't get in, nothing happens.

Getting into one of those schools will be so ecstatic and life changing that I would be glad to drop 3K on such a bet. It would easily be the happiest day of my life, and I would cry like a newborn baby.

Odds

Monty Gets into top 5 3:2
Monty Gets into HBS 9:1
Brady Gets into top 5 4:3
Brady Gets into HBS 13:1

I'll make a book and cover up to 5k in bets.

Top 5 are based on USNWR 2011 Rankings and are as follows

Stanford
HBS
MIT
UPenn
Kellog/Booth (tied for 5th)

Odds updated because I can't do algebra

I think the Odds are skewed a bit... plus what's the Vig.

Oct 20, 2016

I'll take Brady into Top 5, I think he's probably ahead of Monty on that count. The HBS odds seem fair though.
Major props to monty09, this is is the greatest call-out thread ever. Take the bet Brady, you can cry about HBS on your own time.

Odds reflect some of the underlying info to the best of my ability.

Oct 20, 2016

Assuming Brady is not a troll, his chances of getting into HBS are really slim, considering that he would be 32 years old at matriculation and given his overall profile. I'd give it a probability of less than 1%.

Oct 20, 2016

Don't feel bad for me. Brady's a good guy to meet. I wish he drank more. This is coming from the guy that Frieds calls a "lightweight".

There are things that I have which are dealbreakers in friendships. Brady does not have any issues on those fronts. He's not arrogant. He can carry on an intelligent conversation about something we're all interested in.

Self-respect starts with self-knowledge and self-acceptance. It's something we're all working on and getting better at. If we knew exactly who we were and exactly where we wanted to go, and had already become the people we wanted to be, we wouldn't need friends.

I am younger so may have a small edge.

Oct 20, 2016
monty09:

You have a HUGE edge. First, HBS likes younger applicants. And second, you have a very unique background and work experience. I'm older and have a background that HBS hates. So you chance of getting in is exponentially higher than mine; hence, it makes no sense to make this bet.

Oct 20, 2016

^^^ Sure, Brady, but I think you can make it into Chicago next year. With a well-written essay, I'll put your odds at U of C at around 40-50%.

We need to talk some more about what really forms the basis of that and what you need to be working on right now to get ready for the re-apps this fall. Yes, you need to get started right now in January or February to be prepared for this fall.

Elite MBA admissions is a politically correct process in which adcom officers blatantly discriminate against people of certain demographics and industry backgrounds. Unless you're a rockstar or downright unqualified, you just have to check the "right" boxes and tell "interesting" stories that make adcom jizz their pants.

Agree 100% with this. I have friends at M7 schools right now, and they are appalled at the caliber of a lot of their classmates. They think mba admissions is a total joke.

Interesting. Does it mean that you never revisit your past decisions- 'whatever done is done and so be it' and you dont take this approach- 'well, I prob should do it differently so I'll try another way this time'? Just cuirous.

Oct 20, 2016

Good for you monty. I for one don't ever regret things because who knows what the outcome outside my current path could have been?

Oct 20, 2016

Funkfreed, and you never want to know? Outcomes or path could be different and better but the only way to know is to try.

Oct 20, 2016

I personally do not believe in too much woulda coulda shoulda analysis. The situation is what it is. You make the best decision based on the information you have in front of you, and then you own it. And at the end of the day, as Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius would say, we all turn to dust and are soon forgotten anyways.

Regardless, asking monty if he regrets not applying to HBS isn't quite like asking Bill Gates if he's sorry he dropped out of college, but it's within a few zeros of that.

Oct 20, 2016

I asked Monty about regretting (or not) not to go for mba in general (that was my understanding) but I appreciate your contribution anyway.
Dont think that we should take Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius as a guiding light or authority though. But if you do, he had plenty of more positive statements. But it was a very long time ago, about 170 AD.......

Oct 20, 2016

The outcome of a MBA was presented to me so I took it. What do you do to b school anyway? The next job to put your career on a different path. What if that path is put on a platter minus the two years, missed income and loans?

Are you better? Worse?

Do I care about not having a MBA on my resume? Not at all

I honestly doubt I will ever use my resume again.

Monty, of course in your case it's def better. Platter minus two years and no debt- pretty good outcome. I am on the fence on deciding about MBA and interested in others' experience.

Guyjer, you give some of the worst advice out of anyone here. A 20 point difference when you are already at a 680 is insignifcant. The original poster should be worried on writing knockout essays and highlighting his/her "wow: factor.

If his/her undergraduate gpa was lower than average, he should build an alternate transcript by taking some quantitative classes such as mico/macro econ, statistics, calculus and accounting to show his ability to handle quant. material.

Awwwww taking your fustration on me. I don't mind, we all need to blow off a little steam but remind me your still in school just like me w/o even an internship. Dont be hypocritical it is unbecoming.

yeah but your advice is totally unrelated to IBanking. You have no first hand banking experience, you aren't even looking to get into the industry from your posts. Why the hell do you even waste your time on here? You probably are a social moron with the computer screen as your only friend

awww your making me cry, it hurts it just hurts soo much lol.

your a big tool. I can't even imagine how that friend of yours Eshan or whatever the hell his name is wanted to hang out with a moron like you. I did speak to him once briefly and he's a great kid. As far as I know he also got the call from JP Morgan.

Your going to be a glorified FMP intern and your not even getting into the program, but even if you do you aren't getting anywhere.

Have fun being stuck in the corporate world on the road to nowhere, I'm not wasting my time with you. End of discussion

good you finally decided to shutup and know your role. By the way you never answered my pm about where you go to school. Probably some garbage school with zero ibanking presence because the people are morons like you.

Are you releived yet? becuase if you want you could keep posting if it makes you feel better

I'm relieved that I'm making this board better in terms of accurate advice that is being give,n out and making sure that idiots that have no first hand knowledge or desire to get into the investment banking industry such as yourself, don't pollute this forum with their senseless crap.

It's obvious you got to a nonsense school for the sole reason that you failed to respond regarding schools.

Have fun trying to get into ibanking.....your going to need it.

You elitist prick. This entire time I have been trying to let you off by sliding all of your personal attacks off my back but you don't seem when to give up.

First off you go to Miami, what kind of shit are you talking about my education when we all know people go to that school for South beach, football and bitches. So don't talk to me about pedigree. Also why should I tell you more any more personal information about me? You always post my PM on the public forum.

Don't give me this crap about polluting the forums either. In case I remember you had two posts on how long it would take to buy a house. What kind of garbage is that crap. In addition read the forum topics retard, most of them are under monkeying around. Also you make generalizations that just because you want ibanking that I want it to. Sorry I donaEU(tm)t spend my time drooling over a job in my sophomore year when I should be more focused on who I'm going to sleep with tonight.
O yeah you degrade my previous experiences. Look at you; you don't even have any experience what so ever aside from working for your uncle. Right now it looks like you have nothing this summer since you are applying for commercial banking and spewing crap on the forum about will this work, will this work. Stop using me as an excuse for your inability to succeed at anything.

So have fun thinking of a response to this, it's Friday I'm going to enjoy my time before the grind.

First off, someone doesn't know when to stop giving stupid advice to people.

Secondly, yes, I'll admit it most people come to the University of Miami for South Beach, Football and girls. It is true that we have all three of those things you mentioned.

However, if you would take a minute to look at the statistics and rankings of the school provided by U.S. News you would see we are ranked #54 nationally right there with University of Maryland College Park, George Washington University, Boston U and UT Austin as our closest ranked schools.

We have an average SAT score of 1260, 2/3 of the incoming class was ranked in the top 10% of their high school class and we have a president that has already increased our rank 8 spots in the last 4 years and she is going to do more. We have already gotten the official okay that both Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton along with former Vice-President Al Gore will all be coming to speak this year ALONE. Gore and Clinton will be here on back-to-back days.

Elite school, certainly not.....good school? well compare our numbers to whatever school you might be at and I can tell you that University of Miami is probably better.

You make ill-advised statements just as you ALWAYS have because you post without doing your research. Just look at my example above.

GE is a great company, don't get me wrong, but your speaking like your FMP intern stint or whatever it is that you do is as great as getting a job at a top BB and because you are at GE you are qualified to speak about ibanking firsthand. Your postion is simply not as prestigious or as competitive to get as top ibanking positions, I hate to burst your bubble. The pay is less, the future opportunities are not as great and you are basically going to be a middle-managing guy at GE or some other corporate company if you believe that the FMP will lead you to the corporate audit staff and future CFO or executive of a division.

If you don't have an interest in Ibanking then why the hell are you on this forum? its not called ibankingoasis for no reason.

If you keep thinking about who your going to sleep with instead of your career opportunities right now as a sophomore when next summer will be the most important summer of your pre-working life, then you are already not set out for ibanking and you will probably be a very mediocre guy in the corporate world, living in an average little house, driving an average little kia and shopping at Wal-Mart or Target.

You as my excuse??? I am trying to get into the damn industry realizing I'm not from a target school. I'll get into the industry alright and I will go somewhere too. You on the otherhand are obviously not at a target school because otherwise you would have mentioned it already and with your attitude, just kiss ibanking goodbye.

Now excuse me while I attend an evening at the Delano.
