Does anyone have a sense for what Haas is looking for in the Employment History section when they ask for "Responsibilities/Key Accomplishments"? How is this different than a basic job description paired with what's on my resume for each position? I don't think they'd ask this if they just wanted a cut and paste job from the resume, but I'm also not really sure what the right way to approach it is.

Thoughts?

Hi guys, I know Haas's dead line is coming up soon. I just finished a blog entry about how I answered the first essay question on Haas application . I think it will be a good idea to share it with people. Here is my blog.

http://essaytricks.wordpress.com/

If you like my post please give me kudos.
Also, if you have any questions or comments about my method feel free to ask me. I am not an admission consultant or anything to that effect. I am just another applicant like most of you.

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers :-D

Any R1 interview invites yet? I'm an alum and I'm pretty sure that kills my chances.

Thanks,

I just received an email from Haas stating my file was just now deemed complete and is ready to be reviewed by the Admissions committee.

Unless someone's already gotten one, it appears that we might be waiting a little longer to get interview invites. Having said that, I've heard many stories from Haas students about getting invites in December and even a couple days before the January notification deadline. That seems pretty excruciating but I guess we'll just wait and see.

I am applying in 1st Dec deadline. Any technical or philosophical advice from the people who already applied in earlier rounds? All my essays are ready except one. I am just waiting for my recommendations. I am kind of cutting it close by taking my GMAT on 28th November.

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 is a conscious school. They want to make sure that Haas in not your backup. Probably that's why. Just my guess though.

I think you are still in good shape.All you have to take care of is the GMAT since your essays are almost done.
I still have to take the GMAT ( in a week) and haven't even started any essays. I think I am going to drop Haas from my list of schools because of the early R2 deadline.
Do you guys think it makes sense to apply in round 3 ?

Thanks for the word of confidence. I think it makes sense to apply in R3. They have all these rounds for a reason. Also, please keep in mind that Haas has 4 rounds instead of standard 3.
Also, Haas essays are short (250 words). I really enjoyed writing answers to Haas essay questions because they are de-compartmentalized form of big essays. I think once you start writing it should not take long to finish Haas essays. I wrote these essays when I took break from my GMAT studies. If your recommendations can be ready in time I think you can also go for R2.
All the best !! :-D

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.

Re: Haas Berkeley 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 08 Nov 2011, 16:56
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.

Does any one know if Haas has a deposit amount if you are offered an admission.
