Dear all,

Many of you met Michelle before while she was still in Shanghai. She is one of our former teammates and now studying at Harvard Business School. She is willing to help our current teammates with questions related to HBS.

I suggest that Michelle helps answer questions about HBS here at the forum. For the general questions, she will answer here, and for the private questions, especially for those who are applying to HBS, Michelle can give additional help through us. So, let's filter out the general questions here first at the forum.

Thanks to Michelle!

So, guys, just ask your questions about Harvard by replying to this message.

Do more research before we trouble the our busy alumnus with basic questions. Let's be considerate as well.

I bet many HBS applicants have heard a lot about case stduy. And I strongly recommend applicants to have an intimate look inside the unique approach to case method teaching and learning at Harvard Business School. As a student there for months, I was thrilled when looking at the vedio below: it pictures 100% our real life at HBS. Personally I think HBS admissions admit people who they believe can thrive in this learning environment.

Hi, Nikinsky,

Nice to meet you here. Yes, Harvard did give offers to fresh graduates but just very rare. You have to demonstrate strong leaderhsip to the admission committee. As I know, this year the youngest student here is 22 year old.And you can also check whether you can apply the 2+2 program (the link above). I'm impressed by your early MBA plan. Wish you good luck!

刚刚结束期中考试,突然意识到时间过得真快,已经半学期没了。趁今天稍微空点,写写我在哈佛的生活,hope it helps for application.

昨天和Sandra同学在Harvard campus闲逛,哈佛百年的人文环境,真的就是把你在瞬间征服。回想这几个月的生活,虽然每天都累得只比死人多口气,但是精神上的愉悦却是无法言表的,Cambridge实在太美了,在这里走过的每条路,每座桥,相信以后都会非常怀念。

其实我觉得我最喜欢的还是HBS的Culture。HBS的教授实在是教得太好了,完全没有条条框框的理论灌输,全部都是活灵活现的应用,最后总是在不知不觉中让学生自己领悟出来他想教我们的理论。我真的很难想象这些教授之前要花多少心血备课设计才能做到,又要handle好同学们乱七八糟的问题,有很多问题都会偏离主题七万八千里,又要控制好在80分钟之内让我们自己通过课堂讨论分析自己得出结论。而每天从同学身上学到的可能就更多了,其实具体的某个理论都不记得了,但是同学们的有些思考方式还是经常很让人有’aha’的感觉。或许是一种被transform后的成就感吧,觉得好像也可以活下去了,而且每天学到的很多想法都让人觉得很兴奋,随着同学们越来越熟,每天上课发生的搞笑的事情也是接连不断。本来觉得哈佛的学生应该都是根正苗红、很没劲的好学生,来了之后才发现班级里的同学实在太cool了,每个人都超有个性,而且绝对都是超级不克制地展现个性,我相信在生活中HBS的学生肯定是经常要令别人不舒服的,但是我觉得HBS的学生都是非常真实的人,他们绝对不会因为别人的想法而掩盖自己的想法或者不好意思去做他们想做的。

HBS的学术环境是有名的严谨的,一开始觉得有点被压得喘不过气来,但是渐渐地竟然也发现在这么competitive的学习环境下其实还是很fun的。在HBS,~50%的成绩都取决于你上课的发言表现,每天的case都是新的,逼着每天你都要准备, 很难有机会偷懒,不象在本科只要考试前两星期突击就OK了。如果一门功课里连续三堂课你都没发言的话,那么下一节课你就等着教授的cold call吧。有的cold call还是不错的,也不太难,因为教授会也是尽力想把你involve到课堂讨论来,有些就比较tough, 冷不丁地就在你思想开小差的那一秒被叫到,叫你和刚刚发言的那位同学debate, 通常那一刻你可能紧张得连刚刚那位同学讲了什么都记不起来,而且一般教授对你讲的东西都会很push。不过呢,经历过几次以后,你就会看到同学们都develop了不错的技巧:明明大家都看出来他根本不知道怎么回答,但讲着讲着竟然还讲出了insight。课堂讨论里最大的特点就是你必须要make decision, 尽管可能可以被选的solution A和solution B都是有利有弊的,但是你必须要选择一个,建立你自己的观点,不可以back off,从来都没有“中庸”的解决方法,其实想想现实生活中在复杂的business环境中哪里有perfect的解决方法呢,总是需要在trade-off中做出最佳决策。

HBS还是很cool的,为了让学生更好地适应学习,开学前两个月是不允许公司进学校来招人的,所有的recruiting company也只能等着,不过下个月开始recruiting就开始了,所以就要更忙了,不过还是会经常回来forum的。
