R1 waitlister here, and I got this e-mail a few days ago:

"Although we have not made offers of admission from the waitlist at this time, we have released many waitlisted candidates whose applications will not remain in consideration."

I guess that means they haven't taken ANYONE off the waitlist? The wait sucks...

Kryzak, any tips for how to increase our competitiveness (besides what ad-com has told us to do)? Seems pretty unlikely at this point for me...

kryzak and cyrez8, thanks so much for your replies!!!! :) Yeah... I haven't heard anything from the GSB (and I didn't apply to Wharton...), so at this point I think all hope is lost... But you guys are right, both Ross and Haas are equally excellent schools, and it would be a difficult decision, but I think if Haas offered me some money I would probably go there over my ful ride... I'm a resident of California so I would be paying a lower tuition and I'm going into corporate social responsibility/nonprofit after school, so in a way money really is a huge issue, but Haas' program is absolutely the perfect fit for me!!!! I honestly don't think I will be able to get an extension for my scholarship, so I'm just praying I'll get some kind of sign from Haas before I have to pull my application... I wish I had been able to apply r2, but my recommender didn't get my letter in time :(

I highly doubt you will hear back from Haas in regards to any fellowship offers before your Ross offer expires.

Would you choose Haas with no money over Ross and the full-ride?

alws, would you consider paying the deposit for Ross and then making a decision if you get Haas with money? If you're ok with that, it would be the route I would recommend. :)

If you do get an offer from Haas, I'm happy to chat with you regarding the decision sometime. Good luck!

This is probably what you should do. Accept the Ross offer by paying your deposit and then see what happens with Haas.

Ross full-ride > Haas with no money IMO however especially with your future non-profit interests

Hi Milie ~

As kryzak mentioned, there is a second Days at Haas (DAH), and if you are unable to attend DAH I, I would absolutely suggest that you contact the Admissions Committee to get details specific to registering for DAH II. We certainly want you to have the opportunity to visit campus. DAH II is taking place on April 29 - May 1.

Best,
Lauren

Hi Everyone ~

I'd first like to thank each one of you for the time you spent completing your Haas application, and for the passion you've demonstrated for our program. As a current student, it is so exciting to see the enthusiasm and dedication, and I look forward to having many of you as classmates next year.

For those of you on the Haas waitlist, I've received quite a few questions regarding next steps, and how you can improve your candidacy. I've outlined below a few things to consider over the next couple of months. Please keep in mind that what I'm including below are my personal recommendations, and not official suggestions from the Admissions Committee.

If you choose to accept a spot on the waitlist, the first thing that I would suggest is to identify what you believe to be the weakest part of your application (i.e. GMAT score, work experience, etc.) Once you've identified this area, I would suggest that you determine the best way to demonstrate to the Admissions Committee that the area is actually a strength, or that you are working on turning it into a strength. For example, if you are concerned about your Quant GMAT score, you could do one of the following: re-take the GMAT, enroll in a continuing education or community college Statistics course. I would recommend that you let Haas know of your plans to re-take the test and/or enroll in the course, and then update the Admissions Committee with your score and/or course grade once it is available.

If you are concerned about your work experience, you could submit an additional letter of support and have a current or former manager speak to how you excelled in the workplace, perhaps specifically addressing how you stacked up against other employees with more work experience.

If you are on the waitlist, and have not yet interviewed, this is a great opportunity to really prepare and knock it out of the park! You want to leave the interview confident that your interviewer knows exactly why you are interested in Haas, how an MBA will help you accomplish your career goals, etc.

Finally, I would suggest that you update the Admissions Committee (via email) with any news that may strengthen your application. For example, a promotion or a significant change (increase) in work responsibilities could be valuable information. These email updates should be meaningful and comprehensive (covering all recent changes that you want to share with Haas).

I hope that this is helpful! The best of luck to everyone still navigating the business school application process!

Best,
Lauren

Question: Does anyone know if/when the Super Saturday date would be for R3?

Answer: I believe that this was already commented on, but I wanted to confirm that there is no Super Saturday for Round 3 or 4.

Question: I am in for Rd. 3. Does anyone know what their process is for rendering decisions? Is it on a rolling basis after you receive an interview invite? Or do they release all of their final decisions around the April 28th final decision date?

Answer: Similar to Rounds 1 and 2, the Haas Admissions Committee will be communicating Round 3 decisions by Wednesday, April 28. As I think many of you have seen/heard, calls can start to go out a day or two before the decision deadline, but decisions will not be released earlier than that (i.e. not on a rolling basis after your interview is conducted).

I applied for round 3 and think I have a relatively strong profile. However, I think my GMAT is on the weaker side at 710. Since I was testing out at 750+ on my practice exams, would it be possible for me to re-take it and submit my score before the April decision deadline? Would they take that into account, or would they only look at the score I submitted when I submitted my application?

The short answer is yes, the Admissions Committee will consider a new score. The longer answer is...710 is certainly a strong GMAT score, but if you think that you can improve your score prior to the Round 3 decision deadline, there is certainly no harm in re-taking the test. I would suggest that you email the Haas Admissions Committee and let them know that you are re-taking the test (including date), and that you will be sharing your score (if it is an improvement), by X date. Please also keep in mind that your GMAT score is only one component of your application, and the Admissions Committee is evaluating your entire profile in order to understand if Haas is the best fit. Good luck!

Thanks, Lauren. Also, this may have been covered before, but, on average, what percentage of the total applicants receive interview invites? And, on average, what percentage of those interviewed receive offers?

I officially withdrew from Haas today - I'll be attending Fuqua. This was a really tough decision for me, but after weighing all factors, I feel Duke is a slightly better fit.

That is by no means any slight towards Haas - I was extremely impressed with the people and program during my application process and visits to campus. I am 100% confident I would have had a great experience there.

I sincerely hope my withdrawl opens up a spot in the class for a fellow GMAT Clubber on the WL. Best of luck to everyone.

Congrats on the decision dr2005! We'll definitely miss not having you, but Fuqua is a wonderful school and I'm sure you will have an amazing 2 years there. It's all about fit, and I'm glad you were able to find that fit for yourself. :)
