What do people here respond to the question of which other institution are you applying to? It says it's only for statistical reasons, but I really don't want to tell them what other programs I'm applying to. I don't want them to start making assumptions on whether or not Haas is a backup (it's not, but I don't want to risk it).

Don't say you're not applying to any. They will also receive your GMAT score card, which will have a list of 5 schools. Also, don't say you like small class environment and the other school you're applying to is H or W. Be coherent with your story.

Well I didn't send my score to any schools when I did my GMAT, my official score report is blank on that section. I wonder if they have any way of finding out what I'm actually applying to.

I dont think they do. But, it will be hard to believe that you are only applying to Haas. I don't see much harm putting in names there.

Is Haas the only school requiring TOEFL for Indians this year? I didn't find TOEFL requirement for UCLA specifically pointing out Indian students, even if the under-grad school taught only in English.

Out of the US top 15, I don't think anyone else requires a TOEFL. Most of them waive the requirement if your UG was taught only in English.

Exactly! Most Indians study in programs which are taught entirely in English (Thanks to the queens reign for most of her riches)
What surprises me is that within UC there are multiple takes on this matter and it is kind of frustrating to give the TOEFL just for the sake of one school! Especially, when you have GMAT AWA, GMAT verbal and most importantly a face-to-face interview to assess all the literary abilities of a candidate!

Worse, its coming from Haas, one of the most practical programs out there! Hope the queen intervenes and gives me a better thing to cheer for than the new born prince.

Just put list a couple of schools in the same ranking range or with similar curriculums (i.e Duke).

Even if you list schools on your gmat report that doesn't mean you're applying to them. I sent my scores to Harvard the first time but I'm not applying to them.

FYI for international applicants regarding TOEFL.

From Haas's website:
Quote:
For fall 2014 admission, we only accept official scores from exams taken on or after June 1, 2012.


All other schools I've looked into will accept scores as long as they are within 2 years of the application deadline. I've emailed Haas about this and they will not make any exceptions. I took my TOEFL in March 2012, which is valid for other schools but not Haas. What a bummer.

Agree. Pain it is. Especially, if you're from one of the over-rep demographic, even finding a slot could be a challenge.

I used Quality Inn for Days@Haas last year and had no complains -- it's an easy cab ride, walkable if you're ambitious, and there's a bus stop right across the street that for $2.10 drops you a half block from Haas. When I came to Berkeley to apartment hunt this summer I used airbnb and had a great experience for half the price of Quality Inn, so you might want to explore that option too.

Enjoy your visit!
