Hey all,

Don't panic yet. Yes, Haas does read through the applications with at least TWO (sometimes more) readers before extending an invite, which is why the invites go out later and come at random times. This is definitely a good thing since you know you're in a pretty select group if you get an interview. :)

The volume has gone up, but not as much for R2.

California invites usually go out last because of the ease of arranging travel to get to SS, so don't be surprised if you get an SS interview a week before the day. Also, California applicants can be interviewed on campus, so some invites have gone out AFTER SS. So don't give up hope yet.

What else... Pretty much even if you don't get an interview, it doesn't mean you're dinged. You may get waitlisted and interview after the decision release deadline. I've met quite a few R1 W/L who are interviewing in the past few weeks. I'm guessing many should get off the waitlist after 3/18 (R2 deadline).

Hope that helps!

Look for an email from "mbaadm@haas.berkeley.edu" with the subject "Your Berkeley Full-time MBA Login Account"

Good luck

How does the waitlist move at Haas?

I'm guessing the below three events to trigger waitlists to move -

1. R2 deadline
2. R1 deposit deadline (does anyone have an idea as to when this is?)
3. People withdrawing

Any ideas as to how many are waitlisted this year from R1?

I am a waitlisted candidate and will be interviewing march 2nd week.

Does anyone know if Haas sent out the invite in a batch process or as they review it? For example, for those who received the invites, did it go out at like 12:01AM or is it a random time?

Knowing would help those of us who are anxiously waiting for the invite from checking our e-mails non-stop. :stupid
I had a false alarm when I got an e-mail from Haas, but then saw the subject was MBA eNews. :( I had my hopes up, only to be shot down. :2gunfire:

Even I am curious when is the deposit due for R1.
R2 deadline should definitely see some movement - However, i think it would be more of dings for R1 people on waitlist and accomodating R2 people in that queue.

They may not accept many people of the waitlist until they review R3 apps at least. [May be even R4].

Though, none of this is a fact - its pure speculation.
I do hope it turns out to be incorrect and they accept most of us waitlisted folks.

I just keep reminding myself - its not as bad as a ding - but then, who knows it turns out to be worse than a ding - a ding after 8 months of pain. :beat

deposits are due the week after SS, for r1 it's april 7

I'm an R3 applicant. Just received my "your application has been forwarded for review" email. I thought it was nice of them to send me an email about that. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known unless I checked my account.

I guess the waiting game begins now. I heard we're supposed to expect interview invites in "early March."

I received my Super Saturday invite today even though I live in the Bay Area. It's actually great timing since I'm in Boston looking at my R1 schools right now. Depending on how this week goes I'll know if I'm set on moving to Boston or if I'd rather pursue Haas and stay in the Bay/Silicon Valley.

Congrats BigBad. You seem to have a big decision to make! Hopefully you'll decide to stay in the Bay Area. :)

Hi all,

It looks like I won't be invited for a round 2 interview at Haas :cry:

Congrats to those who have!

My resume has recently become a great deal stronger (in terms of my future career etc.) Do you guys think it's too late to update my application? Is such a thing possible in general at Haas? My goal would be to shift a ding to a WL.


Thanks

Good luck! If Haas is where you want to be, you can at least try to use the other admits to leverage some kind of fellowship. Make sure you tell them where else you've been admitted while maintaining your preference to Haas.

Tamg, don't count yourself out yet...there were a couple people here who got invites like a week before the R1 decision date. Check back in the thread for details.
