Thanks Kryzak. I just wondered if they cared since I am local. I suppose it doesn't make a difference. Any interview tips for Haas?

well, just know your profile really well, know your essays and motivations, and know the school (clubs, programs, things you want to participate in). You should be fine. :)

notokung, we will take pictures for you! It is hard for us domestic people to comprehend the extra added difficulty in applying and deciding on schools that international students have to deal with. I personally could never attend a school I've never visited, but that's just me. :)


Thks Kry. I understand what you are saying and totally agree that one should at least visit the schools he applies. I actually visited many schools but it just not possible for me to visit every uni I applied. Unfortunately, Berkeley is one of the schools I hv never been to. :)

Are there any updates from those on the RD1 waitlist? It's been quiet on that front for awhile and I'm eagerly waiting Monday's deadline.

36 Hours in Berkeley - NY Times Article

http://travel.nytimes.com/2008/03/30/tr ... ref=travel

there are a lot of these places I haven't been yet!

and BTW, Shattuck AVe is the "heart" of Berkeley, and Telegraph is the "soul". :P

Hi All,
Congratulations to all those who are admitted and good luck to all those waiting.
I am an R2 admit from India. A late bloomer on this forum though :-)
Thanks

Thanks Kryzak!
I would have loved to attend DAH but wont be able to. Its a bit too much of travel from Mumbai to Berkeley. Will look forward to knowing more from your experiences. I have a couple of other choices but I am almost sure now that Haas is where I want to be.

It's an official ding from the round 1 waitlist. After all these months of waiting, it's pretty disappointing when I submitted 2 additional letters of rec and statement. 6 Dings now and waiting on one last saving grace.

Good luck to those accepted at Haas!

Sorry to hear that trojan. You've gotten into USC, right? Will you end up going there or is there one more application you are waiting on?

I've been accepted to USC but at this point, I'm waiting on Yale which I'm hoping to find out this week or the next.
