The HBS Post-Interview Reflection is a distinctive element of Harvard’s evaluation process, and you’ll have just 24 hours to submit it the admissions committee after your interview.
At first blush, this might feel like a timed test version of the HBS essay (‘what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy?’).
Instead, writes Fortuna’s Karla Cohen (former HBS Associate Director) in her article for Poets&Quants, think of it as a final opportunity to set yourself apart as the thoughtful, incisive human that you are. HBS, in effect, is giving you the chance to have the last word before making a final decision, and you’ll want to make the most of it.
