The most important points are below:

1. The deadline for Round 1 is mid-September in 2014

2. The application will go live in mid-June

Here are the words directly from Dee Leopold

We’ll be launching the application for the Class of 2017 in mid-June.

Here’s some advance info: The Round 1 deadline will be mid-September.

More details here, but thought you’d all want to know. One more thing –they’ve eliminated the 2+2 summer round. That means the first round for rising seniors will be the September round.

Dee Leopold is very open about what the Harvard Business School admissions process is all about. I’ve written quite a bit about her public announcements and webinars — the most recent article quotes a transcript I made of her last web presentation, including Q&A, and a good starting point if you are thinking of applying to HBS this year for entry in 2015.
