I just noticed that there is now a 4th round open for applications (something which wasn't there before) with an application deadline of May 1. However, applicants from both Round 3 and 4 will be notified on June 1. Just wondering how this would affect the round 3 applicants. Does this mean they dont have enough applications?


They did this last year as well. Opened up a 4th round late in the application process. FEMBA UCLA did so as well. I think part time programs add a 4th round late in the application process for 2 reasons
1) working professionals not having sufficient time to put together an application
2) full time applicants who didn't get into universities of their choice may consider part time programs

Sadly, a 4th round just makes the application process more competitive since there are now more applicants for the adcom to choose from


It's probably also one of the reasons Haas EWMBA's admission rate is under 50% unlike all other part time programs.

If they don't have time to complete their application will they have time to attend class and be a productive member of a group? It's true that you can manipulate any set of data to make it look good in your favor. The head of Haas did come from Goldman-Sachs.

Have been lurking for a while, and I have found this discussion to be very useful. So, I guess it is my time to throw the hat in the ring.

I applied in R3 on March 15th, and barely made it in time with 45 minutes to spare :) My profile is thus: Work experience of ~7 years (by August 2012) in a top-tech company in the US; Out of state candidate; GMAT 730; PhD in Computer Engineering;

Am hopeful that I will get a call for interview soon. It will great if you all can share your profile, so that we know what they are looking for.

Welcome muxtheic!

So it seems like only one interview invite so far? Anybody else receive an invite?

I got a R3 invite but the dates are lacking. Will consider Haas if I get a weekend cohort even with a Stanford admit in hand. Thanks for the comments.

R2 applicant...interviewed with Courtney Chandler....very straight-forward and to-the-point....lasted 35-40 mins. Some of the other interviews I had (at other B-schools) were more conversational...this one was like a tern Q&A session. Anyway, hope Britta was better as an interviewer?

Submitted 2/13/12 along with my recommenders and invited for an interview 3/19/12. Are the interviewers really part of Adcom? Don't see their names on the official Haas adcom webpage.

Yes, interviewers are part of Adcom and may not necessarily be on the official AdCom webpage. My interviewer (Rd2) was a 3rd yr student and also working in the AdCom.

One more week.....

Next week by this time, R2ers and R1 WLers would have something to cheer about or something to drown yourself in sorrow. As in the past years, ad com calls should start going out by Thursday 9am. What is your post decision strategy going to be- especially if you don't make it?

Last year they started calling a week ahead of schedule for R2. Also the EWMBA class of 2015 has only 33 members so far. Either many haven't joined that group or there are a large number of spots waiting to be filled.

What did you search for the FB group? I can't seem to locate groups for EWMBA Haas 2015 or any variation of that name.

For us R2'ers, this is the home stretch. Admit calls should be coming in in two days, and I must say...the suspense is absolutely miserable!

Quick question - has anyone received feedback as to how much weight the AdCom interviews carry? I know the standard holistic application rigamarole - GPA/GMAT/Work Experience/Letters of Rec/Essays - but once you get called on campus for an interview, how much does that matter? Does your interviewer have the ability to accept or reject you outright?

I was very happy with my interview, it was straightforward and honestly the quickest 30 minutes ever. Does anyone know how much interviews matter for the EWMBA program?

Cheers!
