BTW, checked with a few Berkeley students, they all filled out the "what other schools are you applying to" section in the application, and most did apply to Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, etc... And obviously they all got in.

Hoping this will calm some nerves. I'll probably fill it out. Oh yeah, the Haas Student Ambassador says that it is NOT detrimental to leave it blank either.


That question is kinda weird...what if you're not sure so you leave it blank, or enter a 2-3 schools only, and then you apply to another 10 schools in R2? Would that constitute as lying??

I think they're just trying to get some metrics on where else their applicants apply. I doubt that part will be included in the background check.

I asked that, they said it is ONLY used for statistical purposes, and will not be held against you if you don't fill it out or are missing some.

I had to cancel my Seattle infosession. I just got back from my big tour, so I am trying to catch up on work and I wasn't likely to make it on time. Plus, I was just at Haas for an entire day last week. Hopefully they dont hold it against me.

R1 on Thursday or Friday night. Then I get to take a small breather before doing the 2 R2 apps I have planned.

Can't wait until this is over.

Nah, my app is done actually. Just going to proof it 1 more time this weekend.

Trip was great. I'm pretty beat though, and I have about 3-4 hrs of work ahead of me tonight.

Ooooh. I hate to say this. I may not be able to get all the recommendations I need for Haas. If that turns out to be the case, then my app may get pushed to R2. :cry:

Hi Guys, I am new to this forum and applying for Berkeley R1. I just noticed from the instruction online that all the transcripts must be posted in one enveloped after I hd already had my universities post my trnascripts directly to Berkeley (I got one my master degree already). Would they hold this against me? Should I at least send an email to tell them about this? Thks.

I had mine sent directly to the school. I remember this being okay for some reason, but I can't remember where/why and am too lazy to look it up.
