Typically how many weeks does it take from the time your app goes under review to the time the interview invites are sent out? My app went under review nearly 4 weeks back. Should I wait for 2 more weeks and if I don't hear back call it a ding?

I'm currently in the process of relocating to the bay area with my significant other, she already has a job and I'm still looking. I'm also interested applying to the part time program but my transition won't be complete by the round 2 deadline. Do you think this seriously hurts my chances? Anyone applying from outside the area?

Does anybody know how admissions will use the optional question "Please provide the occupation of, and highest degree obtained by, your parent(s) or guardian(s)."? Seems like a lot of schools ask this question, but I'm not sure why. I'd image if you're the first in your family to go to college or your parents were Haas alums, it'd be a plus, but does anybody have any clue what role your parents' occupations play?

With other schools this is where you talk about any additional quant or verbal work that you've done that may not be apparent in your app. For Haas, they definitely encourage you to use it if you are reapplying to talk about what you've done to impose your candidacy. Otherwise, I think these questions should only be answered if you feel like you have a specific something that needs addressing.

I think the schools want to see if your parents or guardians can afford the cost.. many students face some financial difficulties during their school terms and some even drop out. The educational level or occupation of your parents or guardians tell how financially stable you are to finish the course..

So I will have to put a break on my dreams for this year. I screwed up on my GMAT big time. I scored 600 where I was supposed to score 750. But that is fine. Crying over the spilt milk is of no use at this point. I am not giving up yet. I will take this GMAT down because I know I can.

Anyway I wish all the best to whoever is applying this year.

Congrats, Belyok. Quick question - when did you receive your email stating that you're application was ready for review? Just want to see what their timing is like.

It was about three weeks ago (just the same time when everyone received this notification, I guess). The only difference with me was that they failed to recognize my transcripts at first, and I spent 4 hours on useless attempts to send a fax to the adcom via the Internet. Aaargh, what an experience that was

To all those people with interview invites, did you guys receive an email about the Interview Invitation or does the application status change to reflect your "Invited to Interview" status or both

Hello there!
I'm submitting my R2 application today.
Haas is a stretch with my 640 GMAT but I think the rest of my application package is pretty compelling.
I went to Cal for my BA in architecture, not sure if that helps or hurts my chances of acceptance. Will keep y'all posted.

Congrats to those that submitted round 2! Must be a burden off your shoulders! Unfortunately, I was slammed at work this week and I'm not going to be able to finish my application within the next 30 minutes, so it looks like it's round 3 for me =(

I know that Adcom says there is no difference between round 2 and 3, so hopefully that's true!

Best of luck everybody!
