Important Notes:

To avoid overwhelming server traffic generated by the high volume of applications received, candidates are encouraged to submit their application as early as possible prior to the deadline of each round.

Applicants are encouraged to apply in the first (deadline has past) or second round, as space in the class may be limited by the third round. In addition, applying in the earlier rounds will give candidates more time to address the following:

  • International candidates needing visas will find that applying in Round 3 makes the timing of their visa application stressful.
  • International candidates admitted in Rounds 1 and 2 find that it’s helpful to have the additional time to work on English proficiency.
  • Some candidates may be required to complete preliminary course work prior to their enrollment.
  • Many deadlines for outside (non-Harvard Business School) fellowships are in early spring. Only students who have been accepted are eligible for these fellowships.
  • Financial aid is available regardless of when students are admitted. However, since admitted students may apply for financial aid only after they are admitted Round 3 admits have less time to prepare their application.
  • Harvard Business School residence halls and Harvard University-affiliated apartments are assigned by lottery. Deadlines for both of these housing options precede Round 3 notification, and you must be admitted to HBS before you can enter these lotteries.
