Only a select few of the 10,000 or so annual applicants to Harvard Business School receive an interview invitation. Many of the chosen ones turn to the staff at The Harbus, the student news organization of HBS, for counsel. Why? Because each year the newspaper puts out The Unofficial HBS Admissions & Interview Guide.

For $65, potential HBS MBAs can download a 68-page PDF that includes many of the questions the most recent incoming class had to answer in their admission interviews. In the latest edition, Harbus staff conducted in-depth interviews with current students to get advice for applicants.
