Man, that sounds like it was a lot of fun!!! Hopefully, I'll be taken off the waitlist and I'll be heading to the next DAH. Well, at least I can dream :P

for those of you who were interviewed and accepted, about how long did it take to get the admit call? i am R3 applicant, just had my interview with an alumn yesterday... went extremely well... very informal and conversational; he just wanted to know one thing: WHY MBA? and then just told me to ask him questions. our interview lasted about 45 minutes and was very enjoyable. it was one of the easiest interviews i've ever had in my life. hoping i will be at the next DAH!

you will not get the admit call until at most 2-3 days before the listed deadline (which I think is April 30th). So no need to stress about it until then. :wink:

Bobo,

I had my on campus interview on Monday and now am in the same boat as you. I have a feeling that they will be notifying admitted applicants earlier than 4/30 because the next DAH is on 5/1. Crossing my fingers!

"If you consider b-school a vacation, where would you rather spend it? In a place where there is a lot of snow, or somewhere warm and with a lot of sunshine and with nice people?" Wasnt convincing enough for me. But oh well.


Haha, great post branson. Kudos!

I think the vacation thing was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek joke, not the "real" reason for coming to Haas. I mean, it's definitely one of the factors, albeit minor, that I used to decide. If Kellogg and Haas were equal on most things, then would I rather freeze or be somewhere warm? :P

From the sounds of it, you seem to have decided on Tuck? I will read your Tuck admit weekend to see your reasoning. :)

BTW:

When I returned back home, I found a mail from Cal in my work account: 50% scholarship offer. I guess my DAH performance was just too good to not have me at the school. ;)

Ahh, wasn't sure what you meant by "not drinking the Kool-aid" :?:

congrats branson! Looks like Haas found a way to get you some $$ to even the field with tuck a little. They also got some funds to give international students better rate loans. So it'll come down to whether you liked Tuck or Haas more, and which one will help your career goals the best. :)

I need to see a video of this "legendary" performance now. :P

Haas Business Plan Competition Finals, if you're interested...

http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaI ... N=49869504

trying to figure out if admitted and matriculating students (those of us with Cal Net ID and a Haas email address already) can go for cheaper than $35.

wow, that's fast!

BTW, my kroll check went through in ONE day. I faxed it in Wednesday after hours, and I got an email this morning saying it's complete! I didn't even tell them my company's phone number or include a W-2 form... not sure what they checked. My boss was on travel last week (and they definitely did not have his cell number).

I submitted my app for Round 3 and I still have not heard anything from Haas. Should I just accept the fact that I will get dinged? Or is there a chance of making the wait list? And if I do get put on the wait list, at what point do they start taking people off of the wait list?
