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...

-Cheers

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?

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?

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

Hey everybody,

I'm working on my application now, and am wondering what your thoughts are about the optional essay question "If not clearly evident, please discuss ways in which you have demonstrated strong quantitative abilities, or plan to strengthen quantitative abilities. You do not need to list courses that appear on your transcript."

I scored relatively low on the quant section of the GMAT (77th percentile). While I know this isn't the worst thing ever, I know it's not good and I'm wondering if I should address it via this optional essay.

To add some context, I have an academically strong quantitative background (economics w/ a 3.8+ gpa in quant courses) and strong quantitative work experience (analytical work in municipal financial consulting). I also specifically asked my recommenders to comment on my quantitative abilities. Typically I was scoring 98th+ percentile on the quant section on my practice GMATs, but I just messed up the timing on the real deal.

My initial inclination is not to worry about writing this optional essay and to let the rest of my application speak for itself, but I just wanted to see if any of you thought that is an error in judgement.

Thanks and best of luck to everybody!

Go Bears!

On a different note, I just got an invite from Haas. Judging by this forum, it seems like they're still in te beginning waves for this, so give it some time. Good luck to everyone!

I would also not go and self incriminate myself and say i have a low gmat. I think as long as applicants in your pool engineering/finance/male/white/asian etc have a comparable score i dont think it will harm you too much. I think you can skip it

OhDenny,

Just curious, prior to the interview invite, when did you receive the email saying your application had gone under review? Thanks.
