Just received an interview invite! Real estate guy from New Zealand. It took me by complete surprise as it's the weekend and I'm in holiday mode hehe.

Good luck those still waiting!

FROM Haas Admissions Blog: Haas Trivia Contest – Day 5 Answer
Congratulations to Vicky C. who submitted the first correct response. The two students who are planning the drive from Deadhorse, Alaska, to Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina are Jonathan Lim and Brandon Doll, both of whom happen to be veterans as well. They anticipate their vehicle, named the Solar Nomad, will make this journey in the summer of 2015.

To learn more about their project and how the Solar Nomad was conceived, please visit the Haas Newsroom.

Just had my application changed to Under Review. Seems that they are still doing reviews (and hopefully still sending interview invites).

Just a little more than 1 month to go until decision deadline with the holidays coming up. Super nervous!

Got interview invitation few hours ago. :-D
Submitted my application on Oct. 15th and became ready for review on Oct. 22nd (it was a really long wait). Don't lose hope, they're still sending~

Congratz, Sugararbez!

Yesterday I got an e-mail from Haas inviting to a coffee chat with students... For a few seconds I thought it was an interview invite...
So frustrating!

I got Stage 1 under review on November 6. Nothing has changed since. Anyone else wait this long between Stage 1 and Stage 2?

Honestly don't worry about it. They review different apps at different times based on whatever system they use, but rest assured it'll get fully reviewed. I think sometimes the status online doesn't necessarily reflect every single update or set of eyes that looks at it. For example, a few weeks after I'd already interviewed I called because it still said "interview and review" stage and then specifically invited me to register for my interview (even though it had been completed for a couple weeks). So, I emailed to confirm and everything was in order and the status just still says what it says. Bottom line is they get 3K (great) apps per year and have a slightly longer turnaround than some schools, so bear that in mind. Unless it seems really clear that something is wrong I wouldn't worry about it.

R1 Has anyone been accepted yet? Or should I not be expecting to hear anything until Jan 15th?

Had my interview in the middle of November.

I submitted on October 15th. Recos went in Oct 16th. Received Interview Invite on 3rd December. I interviewed today in Chicago with an Alum.

Based on last year's thread, admits started flowing in a couple of days prior to the specific Round deadlines. So I am not going to worry until 12th or 13th January.

Good Luck to everyone waiting!

I don't think they notify you until the decision date. Isn't that how it went down last year?

Along with others, I am getting pretty nervous about my application into Haas. Do they let you know if you have been dinged before the admission deadline or do they just not interview you by the time the next round starts and then start sending out notifications?

Just received an email inviting me to interview. I'm from the UK with a finance background, submitted on R1 deadline day and had began to think that I'd missed out.

Good luck for those waiting to hear. Wouldn't read to much into "under review" timing etc, sure its just a case of them taking the time to review each app thoroughly.

Hi,

I got invited yesterday evening Europe time,

29 male from Spain, Product Manager at tech startup.

A weird thing is that a few hours before I got the invite my app was still in 'Stage 1'. I was really surprised when I got the mail. Has anyone else experience something similar?

Although I think my essays were good, I doubt my application is as strong as to trigger an immediate invite upon reading, specially since no one else has reported something like that.

Maybe they are reviewing faster as the decision date approaches...

Anyway, good luck to everyone.

That is weird. They probably just forgot to update in their system when you moved to Stage 2. How'd you find out that you got an invite - was it from checking their site, or did they e-mail you?
