Why are the R2 deadlines for Haas a month before all the other schools ?
This throws a wrench is the otherwise orderly R2 application pattern

Haas has four rounds instead of three so the timing of the rounds is different.

Why would that kill your chances?

I know for a fact that the law school is notorious for not admitting alumni, I am just assuming the b-school is too... I am not sure why, but when I was at Cal I knew a lot of peers applying to law school and engineering masters programs that got into Stanford, MIT, etc and got rejected by Cal... I am not super optimistic.

That tends to be the case for law schools but business schools don't seem to follow that trend. For example, I went to Northwestern for undergrad and have a bunch of classmates who are currently first years at Kellogg. As far as Haas goes, I read the transcript for one of their online admission chats and a couple of the student representatives had been Haas undergrads.

so since Haas has 4 rounds instead of 3 like other schools, applying in the 3rd round is not necessarily a suicide like other schools...am I correct in assuming this?

Yes I would take that chance. I think that would be safe.

The 2011 employment report doesn't seem to be out yet, but do any of the current students have an estimate if the avg/median salaries went up this year?

It is very quiet here.
To be honest everytime someone posts to the thread, my heart skips a beat because I click hoping to see someone post an invite

Fingers crossed for next week I suppose?

This is such a load of BS...

I looked at the 2011 thread, and last year interview invites started to go out on Nov 1, and their submission date was the same as ours (10/12)...

I'm not sure whats going on, but it feels like something happened and they are way behind... then again, their decision date is a few weeks after Stanford and Booth which had the same submission date, so maybe they are just moving a bit more slowly because they can...

Been lurking on other sites. Looks like invites started going out this week. Anyone know the stats on what percent Haas interviews and then subsequently admits?

While I think it's definitely safer than those schools with only 3 rounds, I applied Round 3 two years ago and got dinged after interviewing, visiting, and waitlisting, and when I received my feedback, the largest point was "We just wish that you'd applied a Round earlier." They had a few more points, but the overall gist was that I was just on the cusp, and the timing had made the difference.

Needless to say, I applied Round 1 this year.

Haas’s essay question 6A
I was going over my second draft and I noticed a subtle point. The question asks you about “how have your professional experiences prepared you to achieve these goals?”
Emphasis is on the “prepared”. When I wrote my first draft I understood this questions as “How my professional experience has inspired me to achieve the goals”.

I made the changes. I wonder if anyone else noticed that or I was the only one who did not understand the question well.

That was a close call
