How To Avoid Landmines In Your 2+2 Interview

James is as solid a candidate for Harvard Business School’s 2+2 program that you’ll ever find. His stats are enviable and impressive: A 760 GMAT (47Q/47V) and his grade point average at New York University is a stellar 3.81.

And it’s not as if he has taken an easy road. He’s a biochemistry major who is, in fact, a Presidential Honors Scholar who will be graduating this spring. But that’s not all.

James served in the elite Paratroopers Brigade in the Israeli Army and has done a series of prestige internships in research labs, equity research, and venture capital.

In this Fridays With Sandy video episode, HBSGuru.com founder Sandy Kreisberg puts him through the paces of a mock interview for Harvard’s 2+2 deferred admissions program.
