Check this article out on BusinessWeek

"In a new approach, B-schools dispense with the essay—and the painful wait—and give fast answers in one-day admissions programs"... (article continues)

I kinda like it. It definitely simulates those "do-or-die" business pitches that some of us have to make in the future... and saves on a lot of agonizing weeks of waiting...

Pros and cons to both this method and the current one. I feel 1-day would be too short for someone (or some people) to review and 'absorb' your application. What if you are an ideal candidate for the school and your paperwork (resume, transcripts, your overall profile, etc) gets glossed over?

:-X

At the same time, please don't take 3 months to give me a 'yes' or 'no' answer :x

I'm currently debating between Haas and UCLA, and waiting on Kellogg. Most probably Haas at the moment though, unless Anderson Days does something dramatic to change my mind.

maybe it's because i did my undergrad at cal, i really liked ucla. i like the ucla campus a lot more and i like the environment of the business school a lot more at ucla. i do like the food at berkeley much more though...blondie's pizza, top dog, etc.

haas is a great school too but the business school area seemed so cramped and full of students.

i took some pictures at ucla when i was there a few months ago.

anyway, good luck kryzak.

RVD.

RVD, I did my undergrad at Cal too. The UCLA campus is MUCH nicer. It rivals even some of the nicer private schools with how nice the buildings are. I don't know how they do it and why Cal can't.

Anderson is also much less crowded, I wonder if they have undergraduate business degrees or not. Having undergrad Haas students could be a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it. I kinda like it, other than the lack of space part. Though for that, I know enough places on campus to go for group meetings because I know the engineering department quite well.

Tough choice... the one key thing is I don't want to move back to LA at the moment, which is a down side for UCLA...

From my weekly (or sometimes daily) emails from Notre Dame (as I side note I really need to get them to take my name off their mailing list).

For round 3 - submit your application by March 15th have your decision on the Patty's day. Seems they are trying 1 business day decisions for "rd 3" there.
