Next week is Thanksgiving in the U.S. To those who have been part of Round 1, thank you not just for your interest in HBS – thank you for how generous you’ve been throughout the admissions process.

During on campus interview days, we have the opportunity to gather interviewees together for a lunch QA session. Those sessions have an interesting mix of emotions since half the room has completed the interview (they’re relieved) and half has not (they’re still anxious). What’s been heartening is to hear how encouraging and helpful the relieved crowd has been to their fellow interviewees. I also saw this play out in Brazil a few weeks ago among interviewees—and have heard from my colleagues around the world: you’re enjoying the interaction with one another and you’re hoping and helping all show their best selves in the interview.

Generosity is something we like to see. Our learning model depends on students who can give and receive, teach and learn, lead and be led. Given that most students live on campus, generosity is also a foundation for the HBS community—and for a lifetime of leadership.

So, thank you for how generous you’ve been in sharing your experiences, your dreams, and yourselves with us. And thanks for being generous with one another.

I’ll post again in about two weeks regarding specifics for Notification Day on December 12. And for those of you working on Round 2 applications, we can’t wait to meet you, too. Please reach out at +1 617-495-6128 or if we can be of any help.
