Still no invite. Everyday I am getting more disheartened. I know interview invites go on for a few more weeks, but I'm starting to feel that sinking feeling since everyone I know personally that applied already received invites. Well, atleast there is still a little hope to cling on too.

After all, 'Hope' is the only thing that can help us survive this tensed journey!
so, still too early to loose hope~

Hi Haas applicants! FYI if you're applying to Haas through the Consortium Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), hop over to the Consortium 2012 Forum and Update Your Profile to reflect that you are applying through the Consortium.

It's simple. Just select your school as "Consortium, the", then indicate which specific institution(s) you'll be applying to and the Consortium round you'll be applying in. You can do all of this easily through the handy 'Add to Your Schools' link on the front page of the Consortium 2012 Forum.

We have a special analytics specifically for those candidates applying via Consortium and lots of useful tips for your application and assessment of your candidacy.

Cheers!

Got an interview invite today! I had written off any chance at a Haas interview weeks ago.

My stats: F/770/3.9/3 year WE in Venture Capital

I know they say that on and off campus interviews are given equal weight, but do you think it will reflect badly to do an off-campus interview if I live in LA (only a 1 hour flight to Berkeley)? I can't get out of a full day of work on such short notice at this time of year.

R1 interview completed - off-campus as I live overseas - just wondering based on previous years: is it possible to hear back well before the early Jan notification date if it's good news? Cheers!

Hi idcx11, congratulations on finishing the interview phase!

Can you say how was it? What did they ask you, was it a regular interview like you expected, or were they unique questions? Did they go over your CV, essays, etc.

Any information you can give on the interview would be great

Thanks!

Hi, blg529. First of all... Congrats! Second, can you let us know when you received the email saying your application was ready for review?

Interviewed on campus. My format was a little different.

Submitted App for R1 EWMBA.
Received invite week of thanksgiving.

Im a reapplicant and was invited last time too. This time i was not asked Why MBA, why Haas,

I was not asked What my most Significant achievement was.

I thought those two were a no brainer!

Ouch Berkeley, play with my heart.

Just got an email from Berkeley MBA, excited I scan over to the subject line, "Meet current Haas students in your city." Big let down, was hoping for the invite.

Balc, same here! I got very excited, and then just felt a huge letdown. Oh well, I guess I will still go, but it will be awfully awkward if I haven't been invited for an interview by then. Lets hope I can talk to them about interview strategies with an official invite rather than just showing up as a wannabe.

Mostly expected - cv, specific experiences on my cv, why bschool, why haas, etc. Asked him a lot of questions at the end as well. Honestly it was a pretty relaxed, enjoyable conversation, at least by interview standards! Nothing on essays by the way - I don't think Haas interviewers get to see them, only cvs.

Yeah I saw somewhere that it's a closed interview where interviewers only have access to your resume and none other.. I did my research before the interview and it seemed like Haas interviewers would likely probe into the details on your work experiences and your roles and achievements, etc etc but it was fairly standard..

But I suppose if you interview with adcom, they will be familiar with your entire profile...

Had my interview today. Though it was generally quite informal, it was clear that the alumni had a certain script in mind when asking questions. Apart from typical things (why MBA, why Haas) he asked some behavioral questions: what was a hard feedback you received? where did you go wrong in your job? etc.
At the end of the interview he even asked me to show my ID :)

So it's fingers crossed for me now - good luck to everyone still waiting!

Btw, does anyone know if Haas releases decisions only at the decisions date, or can do it earlier?

Has anyone received a notification from AdCom that your interview process is complete?
I did my interview a week ago and I haven't received any notification from either the AdCom or my interviewer that my interview report is submitted or hence my interview process is complete.
Is this normal or should I contact the AdCom to make sure I'm done with the process?
My application status hasn't changed and still says that I'm invited to interview...

No update in mine either. I understand they take a while to update the AdCom (at least that occured when I sent a new copy of my transcripts that showed incomplete for ilegibility).
