Calling Berkeley-Haas Fall 2008 Applicants! [#permalink]
14 Jul 2007, 11:38
Saw the thread for the Fall 2007 peeps, and thought we should start one for Fall 2008 Matriculating folks.
I'm applying R1, and the essays are out. They don't seem as "difficult" as the Stanford ones, but I'll spend lots of time on it nevertheless.
I'll be going to the July 28th infosession, anyone else coming? Probably try to talk to some student club people and alumni later this month and in August to get my creative juices flowing for my essays (especially the "Why MBA and Why here" type questions)
I'm in. I'll do most of my essays sooner rather than later and then hold off on the "What have you done to learn more about us" until after I can squeeze in a class visit when they open up in September (or was it October?).
I'd originally signed up for the July 28 session...but now I have a wedding to go to. Luckily, I live locally so finding the resources to go visit isn't a really big issue.
Guys and gals,
Just wanted to let you know that I'll be attending Haas in the fall, so if you have questions related to the application process, PM me, and I can try to answer them. Not sure how helpful it will be, but I thought I'd offer.
Interesting! So, ncprasad, are you planning to apply to a mix of FT and PT programs this fall? Are you looking at a backup to the Berkeley PT also (Considering that the Berkeley PT is arguably the most competitive program to get into .. specially for some over-represented demographics)?
I was also thinking about applying PT when my green-card process seemed to fall in a limbo. But I am now focusing on FT only.
I dont consider berkeley PT a back up and I dont have a back up for UCB PT. I am planning to take my chances.
My FT portfolio looks like this.
HBS, MIT, Ross,Cornell.
My no.1 choice is MIT. HBS is a hail mary.Between Ross, Cornell and UCB, I will choose UCB anyday. Mainly because I am not a career changer and my post MBA goal is an amalgamation of entrepreneurship and social responsibility. UCB beats Ross and Cornell hands down in these areas. Add to this, the opportunity cost of a FT MBA. UCB provides me the opportunity to work part-time while planning for my post MBA company launch.
I attended a UCB info session and spent some time with both the admissions director and a few current students. I came away with a nice feeling and will have no hesitation going to UCB ahead of Ross and Cornell.
Do you think that you'll be able to spend more time in the PT program than just attending the classes (Considering you'll be working FT too)? Have you made some plans about "going beyond attending the classes"?
