Singapore, Singapore
Taipei, Taiwan
Tel Aviv, Israel
Toronto, Canada

I just signed up for the Berkeley one. But damn, why couldn't it be an interview invite instead...

Just got the chat invite. Thanks for the heads up.

Edit: you beat me to it! I wish it was an interview invite too. Combined with the Chicago monthly newsletter, it's been a rough day for email!

the purpose of the chats is to give students who are applying to Haas this year (whether you've submitted your application or not) to meet more students and alums more conveniently. Think of it as an informal outreach and a great opportunity for you to see what students are like at Haas without traveling all the way to California. :)

There is NO correlation between these coffee chat invites and admission interview invites, unfortunately.

Like kcbear said, the coffee chats are out! I should be at the SF and Berkeley one, so please sign up for it so we can meet in person. :)

You need to register as an "applicant" for this website, but here's the link:

https://ssl.haas.berkeley.edu/Admission ... /index.cfm

Stay positive! interview invites should come out in a couple of weeks. The adcom are swamped with reading right now, from what I've seen. :)

regarding interview invites, from the berkeley mba admissions blog:

We will begin sending interview invitations on December 3rd, and will continue to issue invitations until shortly before the response date. Additionally, any applicant who is offered a place on the wait list is automatically invited to interview. For more details about how to prepare for an interview, please visit http://mba.haas.berkeley.edu/ and click on "Admissions Podcasts", and you can listen to Stephanie Fujii, senior associate director of MBA Admissions, who discusses our process.


That blog post is from last year. Don't be giving me anxiety attacks!

Does everyone get a coffee chat invite? And does attending have any effect on your application?

I will be in 3 of the coffee chat cities during end of Dec/beginning of Jan and yet none of the dates line up with my schedule!

It's ok. I'm just giving you a hard time. In all honesty the blog is pretty pathetic and you made a very reasonable mistake. I know because I previously thought the same!

a few answers/comments:

- Berkeley Admissions Blog: Yeah, sorry about that blog. I think they're trying to figure out whether to take the blog down or update it more often. Please check out this blog. It's updated a lot more frequently and has cool pictures of student life here:

http://berkeleymbastudents.blogspot.com/

- Coffee Chats: Everyone who registered on the Berkeley Admissions website (to do class visits, to submit your application, etc...) should get one. If not, just sign up for the website (or login if you've already signed up) and register for a coffee chat. Don't worry, this has no bearing on your application, it's just a way for you to meet some current students who are in your area during our winter break.

- Super Saturday: Super Saturday for Round 1 is on 1/17/2009. For round 2 it's 3/7/2009. Hope you guys get invited!

I think that answers most of the questions?

All they have to do is supply small status updates - I'd be more than happy with that. No need for long expositions...

actually, what sort of "small updates" would people like to see (not necessarily on the blog, maybe through emails)? I know quite a few of the admissions people and can probably pass on the suggestions.

for realz this time....

i got a heart-stopping email that's actually a blast email to all r1 applicants that says:

"Our first interview invitations will be extended next week, and we will continue to extend interview invitations up until our Round One notification date of January 28, 2009. Please note that you should not be discouraged if you do not receive an interview invitation by our Round One notification date. Some Round One applicants will be offered a place on the waitlist without having been interviewed; these waitlisted candidates are welcome to schedule an interview in February."

so news will hopefully be coming soon.

I got the similar mail. It can be another spam flooding the inbox. Unlike UCLA, UCB is keeping the hopes alive.

good luck to all.

Something like today's email would be fine. Decisions will start next week - perfect. Exactly what I was wanting to hear.

awesome that they sent that out (without me asking them yet :P). I'm looking forward to hearing all the interview invites come in!

Remember, WHEN you get the interview invite means nothing other than when they get to your file. So don't lose hope!

I got an e-mail for the admission office stating [to clarify, this is for R2]

Thank you for submitting your application for admission to the Berkeley MBA Program at the Haas School of Business. Your file is now ready for review by the admissions committee. Application decisions for complete files will be released on the response dates specified on the application form, and you can check your application status online at https://ssl.haas.berkeley.edu/admissions/application.

I don't know if that means they've started looking on R2 materials or not. But just want to throw it out there.

Here's my status:

Application Status: Application Under Review
Status Description
Your application for admission to the Berkeley Full-time MBA program is under review by the Admissions Committee. Please visit the web site again and log in with your user name and password on or after the decision date for the round in which you applied to check your application status.
