Dear Lauren,

Are you sure about the origins of the diplomas? I was sure all I need to do was just to have them during the interview.
So I need to send them directly to the university MBA program? sorry for repeating this question one more time

Thanks

Answer: The Haas Admissions Committee requests a copy of your official academic records when you are invited to interview. If a candidate interviews on campus, they can turn their document(s) in at the front desk of the Haas Admissions Office (not to the interviewer). If a candidate does not interview on campus, they should mail their document(s) to the Haas Admissions Office. Candidates can always check their online application status page for clarity on what documents are still needed.

Hi Lauren,

Will our online status be updated to show when our transcripts are received? I sent mine in about 2 weeks ago after I received my interview invitation but my status still indicates that I need to "mail in my transcript if invited to interview".

Thanks!

I had my interview on Wednesday, and I was expecting a slew of questions like rtm47, but surprisingly it was really simple:
-- Walk me through your resume and elaborate on some of the projects you've worked on.
-- What are your goals?
-- Why Haas?
-- Why should Haas want you?
-- Any questions?


Mine was more behavioral. A lot of questions like "tell me a time when you had xyz situation". (for example, used communication skills, had to convince others of an idea) A bit about my goals, and I worked in "Why Haas" into my answers, so that wasn't specifically asked.

Good luck to everybody!

Thanks! Then, if I don't get that email in a few days, I'll probably double-check with them to see if they got it or if I need to have my university re-send.

Answer: If an applicant has sent their transcript to the Haas Admissions Committee, Ad Comm will process it as soon as it’s received and inform the applicant that no additional documents are needed. Sometimes it takes a few weeks for the documents to be processed by the office. The important thing to know is that the Admissions Committee will be in touch with the applicant when the document(s) are received and the online status will be updated.

I still have not heard anything back.. with just one week left, safe to assume i'm either ding or WL? I know they say they extend interview invites till the last minute, but looks like most people have heard back already...

anyone else out there still waiting?

Question: When is the decision expected for wait listed candidates?

Answer: Applicants from rounds 1 and 2 that are currently on the waitlist will have their applications reviewed after round 3 decisions have been released on April 28. These waitlist candidates can expect to hear from the Haas Admissions team by mid May.

And what about waitlisted Rd 3? By when will they hear?

Also, is it me, or is there a serious, conspicuous, palpable dearth of Rd interview invites to date? Per my previous posts, I track both BW blog and this one and compared to other schools, and seemingly even Haas Rd's 1&2, there just seems to be WAY fewer posts from Rd3 applicants who have gotten interview invites. I know, I know, the Haas blog says that invites will happen up until the 28th, but am I misperceiving this trend (aka there HAVE in fact been alot/normal amount of invites to date), OR will there be a big bump in invites between now and 28th OR are there just going to be fewer Rd3 invites in comparison to Rd1 an Rd2 - for whatever reason?

And, perhaps most importantly, can someone (anyone) please skip all the cloak and dagger and just tell me if I AM GOING TO GET IN - that would be super helpful. Thanks!

Cheers and Good luck!!!
GSR

PS and thanks to Lauren, and others who've gotten invites for sharing and contributing!!! Much Appreciated

calihopeful, I have not heard anything yet either and feel the same as you . . . does not bode well. grickman's comment gives me some hope. Also, do you first have to be interviewed to be waitlisted?
