How bad is it to miss the online info sessions I registered at hbs? Do they check that I registered but not attended?!

My POV:

If it's a virtual session that's not meant to be a small group thing/no participant cap, you're not really taking a spot from someone else. In person sessions are a different story but schools weren't doing those when I applied

Life/work happens and there have been times I had something come up last minute so I had a few times I had to miss. If they have an option to cancel your registration, Id do that even if it's last minute or send an apology email (some schools just said to email them to cancel and I did for the small group sessions but not for the big info sessions but I rarely missed those). I cancelled a lot of registrations maybe not last minute but within the day before for one M7 and still got in.

MIT cares a lot about attending these sessions and ask you on the app to list what you've attended/who you talked to/etc. In general, I think schools like you showing interest but attending sessions is only one way to do so. You should also talk to students/alumni and can demonstrate that interest in your application/interview.

I’ve heard that HSW don’t care, others might track to some extent. I think MIT and Tuck care a lot, that’s the sense I got
