Maybe this is why we haven't heard any more interview today, apparently there was a shooting at haas today. Sorry I can't post link but is on google news.

Hope everyone is okay!

I was an undergrad at berkeley and I lost 3 friends while I was there to random bullsh*t... this shooting makes me so sick to my stomach. At a place like USC you know the area is sh*tty so you stay in your little bubble, but Cal wasn't supposed to be like that, and it is. With that said...

If you are reconsidering applying, I urge you not to have a knee jerk reaction to this. I am still applying, and I've "been there, done that." The education I received was phenomenal, and this isn't the schools fault... especially the b-school... but this is really upsetting. On the bright side, the campus police responded really quickly which is a huge plus. I am going to call my friend on their service and give him congratulations to pass on to his colleagues.

I'll be waiting with bated breath for more information.

OhDenny,
First of all congrats for your invite ..
I wanted to ask you that you received the email saying your file is ready for review about a month back .. around 13 October? Also did you status change prior to this interview invite .. saying that your file has been reviewed or was the status same .. saying "Application is being reviewed" ..?

Thanks ..


I recieved that particular e-mail on 10/13. Submitted 10/9. But I seem to remember Stephanie saying at a Haas event that they mix the applications up so the order of submission isn't relavent. Did I dream that up?

One thing with the off-campus interviews - they've asked you to pick a location before you pick a date. This is so they can match you up with an interviewer and you can arrange a time directly with them. This is great if you have a home base, but I travel quite a bit, so may have to go a couple of rounds with Admissions to get something on the calendar. Not that I'm complaining! Just glad to be interviewing.

I'm pretty sure there was no "file is done being reviewed" update. If any school would do that, it'd be Haas, but I'm also pretty sure most schools only update statuses for submitted, under review, and invited to invite (and then accept, waitlist, ding, etc.)

Does anyone know whether Haas uses skype interviews? If so, do they mention any preference towards off-campus interviews with alumni?

Hi all,

today I have received sad news from Haas, please see below. I am wondering how it would affect peopple`s decision to apply.

Dear XYZ,
We are sad to inform you that there was a tragedy at the Haas School on Tuesday which involved the shooting by University Police of a student carrying a gun. Nobody else at Berkeley-Haas was hurt.

In our business school’s 113-year history, we have never experienced an event like this, nor do we expect another occurrence—all evidence points to this being an isolated incident. Still, we are taking every precaution to make certain our students, staff, and faculty are as safe as possible. Safety is of paramount importance to our community and an essential precondition for what we are all doing here together at Berkeley-Haas.

We are grateful for the vigilance of our staff members and police officers who responded so quickly to keep others in our community safe. As is typical at Berkeley-Haas, our community is pulling together to support one another during this trying time.

For additional information, visit
http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2011/11/ ... of-nov-15/.

Rich Lyons, Dean

Haas updated their admissions blog with the following regarding R1 interviews:

Quote:
We recently began extending interview invitations for Round 1 applicants and thought this would be an opportune time to share some interviewing tips.

Be prepared. This sounds obvious, but you would be surprised by how many candidates put hours of effort into their written applications and then don’t invest the necessary time in preparing for their interviews. Practice talking through your responses with a friend or colleague. Of course you don’t want to sound rehearsed, but you should know your story and be ready share details about your accomplishments, your career goals, and your motivation for pursuing an MBA at Berkeley-Haas. Being prepared also means having thoughtful questions ready to ask your interviewer. The admissions interview is an opportunity for you to learn more about the Berkeley MBA Program, so take advantage of it!

Treat the admissions interview as you would a professional interview. Dress to impress (a suit is always appropriate) and arrive on time. Don’t give your interviewer any reason to question your professionalism.
Answer the question. If you’ve been invited to interview, you can probably boast a long list of achievements and awards. However, let the interviewer guide the conversation and don’t try to force-fit responses that don’t actually answer the questions. When answering a question, think before you speak; don’t be afraid to pause, reflect, and collect your thoughts for a brief moment before responding.

Relax and be yourself. Though we understand that interviewing can sometimes be nerve-wracking, remember that the admissions interview isn’t meant to be a stress test and your interviewer won’t be asking trick questions. We’re simply trying to get to learn more about you and assess your potential fit with our program and community!

As a final note, if you are a Round 1 applicant and have not yet received an interview invitation, remember that we may continue to extend interview invitations up through our notification deadline of January 12. We appreciate your patience with us as we complete thorough evaluations of your applications. Good luck!

- Corinne

Hi,
I am a round1 applicant. Can anyone shed light on why don't B-Schools send out all their interview invites for a particular round at once?
My belief is that the "best" ( in the school's view) round1 applicants have been issued invites. Other invites maybe issued for Round1
applicants based on the quality of Round2 applicants (Round2 deadline is Dec1). Unfortunately I have not received an invite yet and
Haas is my first choice school.
Welcome any other inputs.

Even I think so too.. I had got an email from Haas that my application is under review on Oct 20th

Based on that, If I was their first choice applicant, I should have got an invite by now..

Chances don't look good from now on :(
