    HBS Invitation to Apply for Doctoral Program

    Sponsored Ad:
    I received an email invitation to apply from HBS for their doctoral program (I believe using data from my GRE profile). This is a random mailer blast to anyone who scored above a certain score on the GRE isn't it?

    I wanted to apply for Harvard, but decided against it because I felt like I would not have a chance despite research fit. Now, I am struggling against spending $105 for the application.

    Someone please tell me what I can make of that email.

    It's a mass mailer. Nothing to make out of it. If you weren't planning on applying, then don't apply. I promise that this email does not increase your chances of admissions.

    Damn, that's a bummer. Well, it felt good for a while at-least.

    Yeah it's kind of a low blow that schools do this. You'll likely receive some more based on data they have collected about you.

    One thing for sure is that this email signals that you meet some minimum qualification for the program. So that's a positive. Keep the hope!
