    A computer science major with a 4.0 from Imperial plus a 750 GMAT? That is super solid for Harvard’s 2+2 program. Add in the fact that you are a Brit and won a 6-month technology industrial placement at a bulge bracket investment bank and I would think you are as much of a sure-thing as anyone can be in the 2+2 lottery, where admissions is highly selective and unpredictable.

And if HBS doesn’t accept this, you do have a shot at Stanford and a very strong shot at MIT Sloan.

    Hi, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. Admissions to HBS’s 2+2 program can be unpredictable, but I think it’s certainly worth a shot.

If you don’t make it through, no harm done – they will be happy to see you again in a few years. An estimated 10% of HBS’s class each year is made up of reapplicants (many from the 2+2). With your stats, your leadership and community work, I think you have a good …
