Does anyone know if the application status is supposed to change after you've interviewed? I interviewed just over a week ago and it still says invited to interview.


Mine says the same! I did my interview like three weeks ago haha


Thanks taffy97, good to know. I guess it will change no matter what in less than a month!

I interviewd on 11/21 and called adcom last week about my application status still hanging on "invited to interview". I was told it would remain like this until decisions came out in Jan. Just make sure that you check the notes under your status to see if you need to submit anything else like official transcripts for instance!

Hey all,

I'm applying round 3 and had a question about the application. When filling out the employment history page, the application asks for "Responsibilities/Key Accomplishments".

Did you choose to use this as an additional essay, similar in nature to the "most significant accomplishment" or did you keep this fairly high level and general? It doesn't appear that there is a word limit on this entry. Right now I've kept it fairly high level, but was thinking about adding a personal anecdote or two for key accomplishments (although I my most significant accomplishment essay is a work accomplishment). What did those that have already applied choose to do/what are you planning on doing if you haven't applied yet?

Hi sfmatt,
Submitted R2 intl applicant here.
If I am not wrong, the application asked for "Responsibilities" only. I mean as far as I remember, it didn't ask about "Key accomplishments". So, I kept it pretty high level and general.

Just got back from a coffee chat in my city hosted by a 2nd year student. It was very informal but a great way to get information about Haas' academic and EC opportunities from a student's perspective. Also I think interacting with current students can give a slight idea of what your classmates might be like. If any R2 applicants know of a coffee chat happening near them I highly recommend going.

Does anyone know if it is possible to switch an application from part-time to full-time? My recommenders have submitted and I am working on the essays, but after further analyzing my goals, I really feel that the full-time program would better suit me. The essays seem to be the same, and I'm assuming the recommendation questions, etc. would be the same as well. I don't want to appear indecisive to the AdCom, so if they were to say no, and that hurts my part time app, then I dont want to do it. Any thoughts?

I doubt it's possible to switch your app. I think you'd have to create a fresh app for the FT MBA program, and discard the other one, which means you'd have to ask your recommenders to submit their recos again. I'm assuming you have not yet submitted your app, in which case it shouldn't be a problem.

Also, even if it's possible to switch, I would advise against it because the recommenders' comments & tone would surely be different if you were applying to the FT program than if you were applying for the PT program.

Anyone who did their undergrad at Cal having difficulty sending official transcripts to Haas? The online system will only let me send my transcript to the graduate office, not directly to Haas Admissions.

Inside UC Berkeley Haas's Admissions Office - What happens when you click that "submit" button?

Stephanie Fujii, Director of Admissions at Berkeley Haas - Once the applicants submit their applications on the online platform,they immediately get a confirmation and response from the school saying “Thank you for submitting your application.” Next, we put together the application to make sure that all the required pieces of the application are in order, including the application form itself, the essays, the letters of recommendations, resume and now the applicants can also submit the official transcripts while submitting the rest of the application.


After putting together all the components of an application together and verifying that the application is complete in all aspects, we send it for its first read. All of our applications from specific regions or country are assigned to readers based on the country of applicant.

Ya, I agree with you. I only have one reco. submitted so far and my app. is not in yet, but think I am going to go through with the part time program anyway.

I'm an R1 applicant (interviewed). As we enter the final stretch before notifications, what are people's opinions on calling up the admissions office and letting them know that Haas is my first choice (which it really is)? Does the admissions office dislike receiving such calls?

Well R1 applicants, we are entering the final stretch.. for those of us who weren't granted interviews, I guess a waitlist w/interview or ding is in our future.

For those that interviewed congrats and hope you are all admitted!

This year appears to be very different from last year in terms of activity..
