So does this mean that WListed individuals don't really hear back till R4 decisions are released? Or can we expects admits and dings over the next couple of weeks for folks who have been around since R1 and R2..?


See my earlier comment:
Quote:
After the Waitlist chat held on March 19, I received the following in an email from the adcom:

"Round 2 waitlist candidates will be reviewed again after we have released Round 3 decisions. We will provide a status update to all waitlisted candidates on or before May 7. Please remember that, if you wish to add materials to your application, you should do so before April 28."

Unless things have changed, I would expect to hear an update by May 7.


Anyone from R1/R2 WL hear anything yet? From reading threads posted in previous years, it seems that our application status should begin changing form "Waitlist" to "Under Review" a few days before the notification date.

It looks like the nervous wait begins for us waitlisted folk next week. I feel like adcom will call those accepted before the 7th from the previous threads as well.

Hi All,

I was wondering if there are any waitlisted candidates in India? If so, have any of you scheduled an interview yet?

Thanks!

For anyone on the waitlist, what format do you intend to send your statement in? Will it be in essay form? Also, how long are you expecting to make it? Thanks.

I sent in a 2-page letter that: 1) highlighted how my candidacy has improved since my app was submitted last December; and 2) re-emphasized my interest in Haas

I couldn't log in from work either. I asked admissions last week and they said they will be emailing out the transcript to all waitlisted applicants within a week. So you should get an email with the details sometime soon.

Would a bullet point format be innapropriate for the update statement for waitlist candidates? I have 4 or 5 professional accomplishments since submitting my application and two personal accomplishments. I was thinking of separating the two and using bullet points for each accomplishment (2-4 sentences per bullet point). Is this far too informal? I would assume the norm is essay format. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Just an update for everyone: I got an email yesterday evening saying, "At this time, we plan to re-evaluate the applications of waitlisted candidates soon. After our review, we will make offers of admission to some candidates, will keep some candidates on the waitlist, and will notify others that we are unable to offer them admission. We will provide a status update to all waitlisted candidates on or before May 15.

If you are still interested in being considered for admission, please respond to this email by Friday, May 7, 2010. If we do not hear from you by May 7, we will assume that you have made other plans and are no longer interested in being considered for admission."

Kinda worrisome that I had already confirmed I wanted to remain on the waitlist, sent in new recommendations, and sent in an update, but if I had missed that email, I would have lost my spot anyways...

They seem to prefer short and sweet, so if you provide bullets, you're probably better off than long form essays. Make sure that what you're providing is actually new information for your application, though, and not just continued demonstrations of the same traits you already communicated...

Hi Lauren,

I was wondering if there will be a "Calling all Berkeley-Haas Fall 2011 Applicants"? I have several questions, but don't want to interrupt this thread.

Still waiting here. Wouldn't be surprised if they waited until the end of the week before releasing anyone.

Oh I meant application status as in "waitlisted" or "under review". It looks like from previous years threads that "under review" means that a decision is coming your way (admit/ding) as opposed to remaining on the waitlist.
