devil, generally we don't really ask "stats" like the BW forums here. people are encouraged to post a profile of their own either in the Compilation thread or make their own profile (like the one in my signature). You can request access to it in the "Members Profiles" sub-forum and get all the juicy details.

Another way is to search for isentropic's name in the "Ask Accepted" or "Ask Hjort" or "Ask MBA Game Plan" forums if he did a profile evaluation.

Hope that helps, and welcome! :)

Dear Kryzak,
Thanks for pointing this out. Being new to the forum i was not aware of the subtle etiquette. My apologies. However, i am not being able to figure out how to acess the detailed profiles, even yours, when i click i am denied acess. How can i get access? kindly clarify.

no problem devil, we definitely welcome new people here with open arms, but I just wanted to point out the difference. :wink:

To request, try this link:

ucp.php?i=167

If that doesn't work, go to the main forum page and look for the "Member Profile" area under B-School Applications. Then you should see a link that says "request" in the description.

If *that* doesn't work, then do what riverripper loves the most, PM him. :P

Let me know if all those fail. I think as a new member, you need to promise to post your profile before he lets you in, or make some good contributions (not just empty post counts) to the forum. Another way is to post your own profile at this link:

ucp.php?i=167

you can search for people by typing in a school they've applied to... we're trying to implement searching for users instead of text right now...

So for example, search for "Stanford" or "Haas" within the thread will give you everyone who applied there.

Hope that's helpful.

I'm a R3 applicant to Anderson... I just got an interview offer today.

I'm freaking out. If there is anyone out there who can help me with some wise advice about how to act and what questions to expect... I would really appreciate it.

Heck, if there is someone in the Bay Area (SF), I'd like to meet up and discuss the whole interview process with you.

Thanks!!!

Thanks! I just realized I posted in the wrong thread :) That's how freaked out I was I guess.

I'll search on the UCLA thread first like you said. I may ping you later however. I'm also in the Bay Area.

Round 3 decision deadline is April 30th, I believe. Days at Haas will be in May for those applicants. You're fine bobo.

Haas Interview Q&A [#permalink] New post 14 Apr 2008, 08:43
Posting my Haas Super Saturday Round 1 Interview back on January 19th. Realized I never posted it until I had a PM with these questions. Hope this will help future applicants!

1. Was yours by an alumni or a prof? Esp, what kind of questions were asked ( Any basic questions that you can recall?),
I was interviewed by an alum. The questions are typical (look at Clear Admit or Accepted.com for blogs). Basically the "Why MBA, why Haas, why now?" type questions. Name one failure you had and what you learned from it. What would you contribute to Haas' culture. Tell me in depth about your leadership experiences... etc.

2. How long was the interview.
Interview was 30-45 minutes. I did it on campus at Super Saturday, so yours may range from 30-90 minutes, depending on how you connect with the alum and how much time he/she has.

3. Did you face any odd questions?
No odd questions from Haas. It was probably my best interview.

4. How much time was allocated for you to ask questions? Did you prepare any list of questions that you referred to ask or did you prepare for the interview in anticipation of a list of question?
I asked questions for about 10-15 minutes. We got along so well our interview went to the limits of the time slot we had (45 minutes). I don't really prepare questions, as it's not my style. I generally have some in mind and then adapt it based on what we talked about during the interview.

5. Is it a blind interview? I assume Haas interviews are blind however I have heard sometimes they ask specific questions which the AdCom have told them to. Were you asked some specific questions? Just wondering...
Yes, it's a blind interview unless it's an AdCom interviewing you.

6. Any idea on how much is the importance of interview in Haas MBA process?
The interview is probably more important than other schools, but I wouldn't place too much emphasis on it. I would say it's probably on par with the GMAT/GPAs combined, but less important than your essays and work experience. Of course, this is all my own conjecture based on what I felt about the whole process. :)

7. What kind of conversion rate to success is expected after interview?

I would expect 50-60% conversion rate based on Admissions411 and historical figures, again, a rough estimate.

8. Were you asked which other schools did you apply to? And if yes, how did you tackle that? I have heard Haas is very curious about knowing about your choice of other schools and to know whether you are using Haas as your backup
No, I was never asked which other schools I applied to by any of my interviewers at all schools.

9. Anything else that you could recall
Just know your background very well, and know why you want to go to Haas and how you can contribute. relax and you'll do just great!

red_s4 and others may have comments too, so feel free to contribute! :)

Bar of the Week:

This was at Thalassa on Shattuck and Durant. Huge bar, but the music was way too loud to really talk. My throat was killing me by that point talking for 6-7 hours straight. I left around 11:30am


Kryzak doesn't close down the bars... he reopens them in the morning also.
