What format is expected for the Supplemental Information section?

Two of the five sections specifically ask for a list - clear enough.

But for the career gaps question, I assume this can be in essay format, correct? There's no word limited specified. I actually have a lot of meaningful stuff to say here (several jobs since college, and gaps were fruitful/ had impact), so am wondering whether 300-400 words is too much.

Thoughts?

Hi,

Does anyone happen to know the e-mail address of HAS (Haas Student Amabassador)?
MY PC doesn't let Outlook Wizard work~ so, I can't see what's hidden behind "Email the Haas Team".

http://mba.haas.berkeley.edu/admissions/hsateam.html

Thanks in advance.

Does Haas actually send some ding emails for the people who are not sent the invites? or is it just that one has to wait till Jan 12th only to realize that he has not been invited?

Unfortunately, I believe you have to wait until Jan 12th

Based on last year's thread, that is the case...

Additionally, it seems that people were invited roughly 4-6 weeks after their profile went under review.. so for those of us who went under review shortly after the deadline, if we don't hear back by end of next week.. I would say there is unlikely to be good news on notification day.

Hey Guys,

I am a reapplicant. I went complete early in the process last year but was not granted an interview until mid-Dec. Eventually ding-ed.

Still waiting with the rest of you this year - but don't give up quite yet. If my experience last year is any indication - your not out of it until the very end.

Guys, Need your help!!

For the reco, there is a question to provide examples of "Confidence without attitude" kind of situation. One of my recommender asked me to help recall an example.But I am unable to think of one to show both - confidence and no attitude.
Any pointers on types of examples this question can translate into? Really appreciate your help!!!!

Not that I'm putting any weight behind it, but both of the applicants who listed interview invitation dates listed Tuesdays, so perhaps Tuesdays are Berkeley's preferred day to send out Interview Invites. Hopefully, we(and I) will see some positive news this afternoon!

Does anyone know if I will get an email from Haas admissions once my recommenders submit the recommendation? Or do I have to keep checking it everyday. I am applying for R2 Dec 1st deadline.

Yes - when they submit you should receive an email with subject "Recommendation Received" from "mbaadm".

You may want to chase up on your recommenders if you don't get that email!

Hi,

just to double check, Haas asks to send the Official GMAT Score Report and TOEFL score report(Intl applicants) by the point of application submission, right?

Just wondering coz some other schools are fine with Self REporting and only asks for the Official Report if one is accepted into the program.

If we still do not receive interview invitation at this time (6 weeks after R1 deadline), does it mean a DING?
