JayLin20 - Just curious, did you apply to other schools as well? My interviewer said that they hadn't even seen my application when I was invited (which obviously was a little disappointing). I was thinking that it may have been due to the fact that I applied to some other schools (full time programs). If not, then I think it is a really good sign for you because they had a look at your application and invited you based on the quality of the application (just a theory).

LOL. CaliCpa and goodluckMBA are in the clear. I'll keep my expectations in check. Thanks for the encouragement.

Also, I received my interview invitation.

I did not apply to other school. I spoke to several alums and current students about their interview experiences, they all told me that the AdCom usually do not review the application until after the interview to have a holistic view of the applicant.

Thats what I heard too, but what is interesting is that they interview roughly 3/4ths of the applicants. What do you think they use as the initial cut-off for interviews? I was thinking maybe GMAT score or something.

That's a good point, they do need something to gauge by. I would assume that they take a quick glance at the whole package (GMAT, resume, essays, education, and recommendations) to look for the right fit.

JayLin - I spoke with some admissions people at the event on Saturday. They use the resume to decide who to send out interview invites to. They interview 2/3rds of applicants (straight from AdCom itself).

I enjoyed the reception and class.

Can someone kindly share details about this Haas Visitation Day and whether you attended the event as part of R2 interview or received a formal invite to this event and had already interviewed prior.

Speaking for myself and other "outside Bay area" Rd 2 applicants I met during the Haas visitation day -
It was a Rd 2 interview + opportunity for campus visit and class visit for applicants living outside bay area.
There were also prospective students who were only in the class visit. Hope this comforts your anxiety....

To my knowledge, most of the people on visitation day are out of state applicants (only a handful of locals). The adcoms tried really hard to get all out of state applicants to come to class visits, campus tour and interview at the same time. I received the invite roughly one week after submission of R2. If you are local it seems very likely that you are interviewed individually and you probably have attended class visit and infor seminar already, which many out-of-state applicants can not afford to...

Re: Haas EWMBA 2012 - Calling All Applicants: Resume format [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2012, 00:30
Hi,

I have a quick question for EWMBA application resume format. I have 12+ years of experience.
Does anybody know if Haas prefers 1 page resume or 2 page resume, if years of experience is high?

As most of the schools prefer 1 page resume irrespective of experience level.

Thx...

If you can fit in one page great, else 2 page is OK. Mine was close to 2 pages (about 6 yrs exp.) and there seem to be no issues.

I attended the event as a Round 2 local applicant. I emailed and asked if I could attend. They said that I was more than welcome to attend and sent me an invite. Honestly, I am trying to do anything that may give me an edge or show more interest in Haas. I really hope that I am attending this fall.

For others who may also be worried about this, I asked Tammy whether the AdCom considers how much an applicant has done to learn about the program. She assured me that they do not track the number of admissions events that applicants attend, and that it is in no way factored into their final decision.

That being said, it's probably in our interests to learn as much as we can about the program. But I wouldn't go out of my way to attend unnecessary events to try to impress them.

I agree to some extent. While I don't think it will hurt you to not attend admissions events, I do think it can help to attend events (and therefore hurt you compared to other applicants that do attend if you think of it that way). The AdCom has a unique skill in that they are able to meet thousands of applicants and remember faces, names, etc. If they have met you in person before reviewing your application, they can put a face with the story. If they meet you through an alumnus, professor, etc., then even better.

Thanks. I thought this form was to fill out any increase in salary or any change in title? Does it also provide space to speak about additional responsibilities? thanks in advance
