Have you guys seen how much Haas's applications have been rising? I could be mistaken on these numbers, but I believe that last year it went from 2100 to 2800 applicants for about 400-500 acceptances (and about half of the acceptances actually end up attending). So it has to be more than 3 grand applicants this year. It's gonna take some luck.
I've been looking at berkeley but it appears too competitive for the amount of work needed to complete the apps. I find the question regarding what steps I took to get to know the haas program a bit difficult. it seems that if you dont visit, you are already a step behind other applicants. How are you guys handling this? _________________

i also haven't visited the school and the question about the "familiarization process" stumped me too....i have formulated a response pointing the usual suspects...web/online journals/website...and an alumnus...managed to catch hold of one...
Just got an email saying they had released their first batch of interview requests. However, they said they review the apps in random order, so the timing of your interview request is not indicative of where you stand with them. Still, can't be a good sign to not have received a request yet.
