Harvard Business School will send a small surprise to candidates admitted to their MBA program on December 10, 2020. The package shipped by Federal Express or FedEx is delivered in an elaborate dark grey box which says, “You’re in it! Congratulations!” This is the message on a greeting card included with the kit. In addition to the message, the box will also have a formal acceptance letter printed on the school letterhead, signed by Chad Losee, the Executive Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, and a mini Harvard Business School felt pennant. Harvard Business School recommends that applicants send the card to a family member, friend, co-worker or mentor who encouraged them throughout the process. Let’s get to know more about these Harvard MBA Admits!
The card is a three-dimensional replica of the school’s emblematic Baker Library. The card was made by Lovepop, a startup founded by two Harvard Business School MBA alums, John Wise and Wombi Rose. They were quite inspired by the artistic and intricate handmade cards they saw on a Harvard Business School trip to Vietnam. Both earned their MBAs at Harvard five years ago when they launched the custom-designed 3D card and wedding invitation business.
But, it is not the admissions package. Instead, it is a token of thanks to all those interviewed. The admissions decision will be published on the online portal on December 10th, after which Harvard Business School will send a signed paper copy of the admission letter.
Meanwhile, Chad Losee wrote and posted a message of thank you to all the round one applicants on his blog on November 23, this year, noting that the school sent its round one decisions out on December 10, 2020. In that, he also mentioned how 2020 has been a challenging year around the world for everyone and with the given pandemic, we have missed travelling to the applicant’s home towns and countries to meet them in person and share more about the Harvard Business School. He had also mentioned that they miss hosting the freshers and applicants on the Harvard Business School campus for class visits, campus tours, and interviews. But despite all that, the Harvard Business School has enjoyed meeting many of the young freshers through the medium of online events and webinars.
