This may have already been touched upon, but will Haas send any notification or update to the application if you are dinged over the next month or so? Or will applicants who get dinged only find out by NOT receiving an interview invitation?

I'm beginning to get nervous like many others and am trying to determine at what point I should stop hoping for that invitation.....

My application was 'ready for review' on October 25th. The application status says 'Application Under review'. Does this mean I can expect a status update within the end of the week?? I know its not how it officially works but I was hoping to get a prediction based on the applicants who received their invites.

Got my interview invite yesterday late afternoon. Submitted about a week before the deadline, got the email that my application was ready for review about 8 days ago.

Interesting this (called after previously being accepted). Good luck.

Hi,

Congratulation on previously being accepted at Haas and I wish you very best for this year! I will be applying to Haas in R2. Can you please share your last year's interview experience?

Thanks!

Berkeley - It seems like your page is getting a lot lesser action compared to the other top colleges. A few more interview requests might generate some more traffic! :sa

In the status page under additional notes does all of your applications say,
"We will require an official transcript from X and Y universities if you are invited to interview. "

This could at the least mean the admissions committee has read my application.

Yeah I've got that one too, but they updated mine right when they changed my application to 'under review' leading me to believe that the update was based on a preliminary view performed only for accessing application completion.

Ah, thanks for verifying. They seem to have diligently copied even the additional periods I entered to shorten the university name. Most likely a system generated update then.

What do people's status descriptions say? Mine says "Your application for admission to the Berkeley Full-time MBA Program is under review by the Admissions Committee. You will be contacted at the decision deadline to see your final admissions decision."

I'm constantly checking that page and am trying to get clues about my admission status from anything (even though I'm sure it's not there)!

I read an old post with the following:
Status description (when you click on "status report" on the main screen) is what changes and this will give you an idea as to when exactly the adcom guys start reviewing your application.

Stage 1: The description reads something like " Your application is ready for review......" and under additional notes they put in comments if they will need your official transcripts etc at a later stage if you are invited for interview

Stage 2: When the adcom guys actually pick your application for review, the status description changes to this -
"Your application for admission to the Berkeley Full-time MBA Program is under review by the Admissions Committee. You will be contacted at the decision deadline to see your final admissions decision"

Once your status description changes to this, you can start looking for an interview invite. Now, nobody knows how long it takes to get interview invites after Stage 2. Some got it in a week, others even longer..... probably based on how may hands your application passed through or based on availability of an alum for interview etc etc.

My status description says "Your application is ready for review, but we may need additional materials before a final decision can be made. Please read the note below, which indicates what is missing from your application. Please feel free to call or e-mail us if you have any questions regarding these documents. "

Sounds like your app is further along in the process.

It looks like everyone's statuses are "Under Review" and mine is still "Received". I submitted on 10/16, and my recommendations came in the same day. Is anyone else in the same boat? Just wondering if/when it would be appropriate to contact admissions to check on this.

My status changed to Under Review just 6 days ago (on 11/7), and I submitted my app on 10/13. I think they're still probably going through all of them.

Don't worry, I have submitted my application on 10/13 and the status was changed on November 6 to "Under review". It is still under review, so I am expecting some changes soon. I think they check it one by one, so your turn will come. ;-)
