Hi All - FYI, I just got the email for an interview. Round 3 applicant, submitted on 3/12. So took 1 week to get a call! I scheduled the interview for this Friday, 3/23!

Guys, I think the ADCOM can see the complete applicant pool by now. Any guesses how many seats are filled?
The fact that so many are getting waitlisted is a good sign. They want to do a fair comparison before giving admits and us late app'ers are not forgotten.

Something about myself, I am a 31 year (old :lol: ) project manager with civil engineering background (based in bay area). I am a working mom without any support (except for the giggles and cheers I get from my 3 yr old) and did put a lot of effort to get this application in. In my first shot at GMAT in Nov 2011; I got a 610! It was just too shocking/insulting-exactly 1 month after that I gave my GMAT to get a 720 (Q49 V38). GMAT part of this club, BB and other fighters here were my inspiration. Its been 3 weeks that I submitted my application (only) to EW program at Haas in round 3. No interview invite yet. Frankly with 7-8 years of experience and after managing many big budget projects (with no direct reporting employees though), it would be interesting to know why I should'nt get an interview invite. But lots of factors are accounted when they make a class. May be people with similar backgrounds like me are already in and they don't want more (I know, I could be the snoozer/loser). Anyways next 4 weeks will decide if they wanna talk to me and next 4 months will decide if my dreams come true.

To all those in different stages of wait---Nothing can take away your strengths from you. You tried and that was a win in itself! Don't buckle and don't give up. In the end you will get through and will be surprised that you made it.

Can someone from Round 1 EWMBA share some insights on his/her interview? Was is straightforward? What types of questions were asked? Etc...


I was a Round 1 re-applicant and I don't think that they asked me the typical questions since they focused more on what changed from last year.

But, last year my interview was very straightforward. I went through my resume first. Then they asked about the four guiding principles, which one I wrote about and asked me talk about one of the other three. Can't remember the rest but the interview lasted 30 minutes exactly and the interviewer was very nice and made me feel comfortable.

Hope this helps!

Hang in there. I'm hoping more GMATClubers get the call today. It was great to be able to talk to each other over the last few days when panic hit the roof.

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.

Did anyone submit updates to the adcom? Are you adhering to a specific word limit?



Hey guys, what is the world limit for updates when on waitlist?


I am thinking max 1 essay , double line spacing (approx 400 words). This because the application essays averaged 250-500 words

The wait is over. Got in Stanford with $$ and a private scholarship. It makes the Haas June 1 decision date so much easier to live with.

Just got the call and I'm in as well!

I have a << 3.0 GPA so for people that have low GPA I am yet another example that it can be done.

it's a 5 minute call congratulating you, confirming on your cohort choice, and informing you of next steps (email packet, admit day, etc).

Good luck everyone!


Can you share a bit more about your profile?



Yeah sure. 2.65 GPA in electrical engineering from large state school and a 710 GMAT (48/40). I have 6 years of working experience - 2 as account manager for F500 semiconductor company, 2 as business program manager for Electronic Manufacturing Services company in China, and currently 2 as a consultant for a non-MBB management consulting firm.

GPA definitely sucked so I had to make sure that the other areas of my application made up for it. I was able to get good recommendations from my firm, and also spent A LOT of time on the essays. I was able to weave together my story and integrate how a PT Berkeley MBA is going to help me advance in my job... I think the key is to remain true to who you are and be confident of what you have accomplished. Lastly, I didn't mention anything about my GPA except in the 150 word optional short essay. Instead, I focused on other areas of what I have to offer....I think admission is able to easily see how you have grown since college days through other parts of your application so you don't really need to explicitly dwell on it.

I also got a call yesterday. I am in. Congrats everybody !! See you on Facebook with our full names :-).
My online application still shows "File under review". Did anybody's application status change? Any idea when Haas will update the status?


Same here buddy....my online status still shows "file under review"...I'm sure there are a few of us here in the same boat.



My status has remained the same as well. Probably going to wait for the official email/package to come before it changes. Speaking of which, has anyone received anything in their inbox?


I just checked with one of the current EWMBA student, last year his status was updated in late afternoon. Yes looks like email will have all the instructions for fee deposit, etc.

As someone mentioned earlier, AdCom must have been busy last week with all the R2 calls, and that may explain the delay in R3 interview calls. Also, in one of the sessions I had attended they had mentioned call people throughout the period....so I wouldn't worry too much as yet. I don't see any reason either why they would not call you for interview....Good luck!

They asked you all of these questions? Every other interview report i've seen has said they got 5 or 6 questions total.


Haven't had my interview as yet. Just compiling questions in preparation.

My math requirements were also updated recently. It states my math pre-req is complete with statistics showing as incomplete. Unfortunately I don't expect to hear the admission results until we get closer to the deadline and I don't believe I can sign-up for the statistics course/waiver unless admitted (please correct me if I'm wrong as it sounds like I may have the wrong info).

As for your question, it's up to you if you don't feel your knowledge with Statistics is up to snuff. If your app says you're complete, I would assume you're good to go.


Hi, GZR4DR

Thanks for the response.
I believe you can sign up for the waive exam just by logging into your status report, and you should be able to see this,

You have invitations to private event(s). To find out more or to RSVP, please click the link below.
Mathematics Waiver Exam -- 5/18/2012
Mathematics Waiver Exam -- 5/12/2012
Statistics Waiver Exam -- 5/12/2012

At least that's what I have.

I applied in R4. I got my file status changed to in-review a few days before the interview. I had my interview last week and the pre-req status changed to completed for quant and in-complete for statistics yesterday. I am keeping my fingers crossed...

I am a R4 too.
Both my Pr-requisites are complete.
Status: File Under Review since a month.

Frankly I dont think updating prerequisites has anything to do with adcom. I believe the prerequisites are a parallel process to the actual decision making.
