Dillon House is where Harvard Business School makes all of its admission decisions.

Harvard Business School’s remaining round one applicants will get their news today (Oct. 24) from Dillon House, the home of the school’s admissions staff. Candidates will hear if they have been Invited to interview, dinged, or waitlisted.

This second and final wave of notification to the early bird applicants for the Class of 2015 will likely result in about 125 candidates given the chance to interview with HBS’ admission staff as well as another 100 or so who will be put on the waitlist. Roughly 750 applicants were invited to interview in the first wave of Round One notifications on Oct. 17th.

Whether you heard in the first wave or you hear today, tell us your story as you find out your fate. Our new discussion group is called HBS: Round One — Intelligence & Gossip, a place to share your thoughts, ideas, and feelings.

The first ten HBS applicants who weigh in will receive a free copy of our new book, ”Handicapping Your MBA Odds: Profiles of 101 Applicants & Their Odds Of Getting Into a Top BusIness School.” One lucky candidate will win the new iPad Mini, introduced by Apple just yesterday.

Don’t miss the chance to share your ideas and thoughts on our newly created discussion forum.
