I just received an interview invite from Pam Maestas. I was surprised as my application was in the review stage since about 1.5 months.

I have a question for those who have received an interview invite and are located in the US but not in California. I am in Chicago and when I tried to schedule an on-campus interview it says - "Sorry! There are no dates available for interviews within the next three weeks. Please revisit this link weekly to view new appointment slots."

What are my options? keep waiting? has anyone opted for an off-campus interview in the United States?

I did my interview with an alum in Houston. I had already visited campus earlier this year, so I opted out of taking another flight. The alum I met with told me that he had been interviewing candidates here for years.

Thank you for the prompt response! I think I will go ahead and schedule with an alumni here in Chicago! Any feedback on the interview questions? was it conversational? was he asking specific details about your application or was he asking more general questions?

Just the normal ones that you would expect. The only one that caught me a little off guard was being asked to about why I would be better able to achieve my specific goals by getting an MBA versus continuing to work in my industry, being that I hope to eventually return.

Hi everyone,

Does anybody still have the "Your application is ready for review..." Status Description?

Also, did anyone of the people called for interview have this status description when they were called for interview?

I am asking because my status says "Application Under Review" but the Status Description says that my application is ready for review so I'm not sure whether admissions already looked at my application... Does anyone have a thought on this? Thanks!!

Hey, guys.
My error message also went away and my status changed to:

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.

You can learn more about what these students did and about the other amazing things our students are doing on our Haas Achieves Blog http://haasachieves.wordpress.com/
