Survey Says: HBS, Try Decaf! I've taken down the poll of reaction to HBS' unilateral rejection of 119 applicants (full story here) for looking for their decisions early. The t-shirts were cute, but the creation of hbs119.com tells me that this story has officially "jumped the shark".
40 hours after putting up the poll, the responses to the question "Did HBS do the right thing?" stand at:
208 responses (55%) - No - This is a huge overreaction to a very minor thing. 72 responses (19%) - No - They should weigh these breaches as part of the overall applications. 41 responses (11%) - Yes - Applicants have to live with the consequences of their actions. 30 responses (8%) - Yes - HBS must make a stand for good ethics. 19 responses (5%) - No - (for other reasons). 11 responses (3%) - Yes - (for other reasons).
I've taken the poll down from this main page, but if you'd still like to vote, click here. As with any web survey, the results are not scientific, but may act as a gauge of what the general sentiment of the MBA public is.
