Going on the opposite direction of most questions, has anyone been dinged for R2? Any idea if they will reject a candidate only on the last couple of days?

3 weeks and a few days to go for the final notification. Wonder if it is time to brace myself for a crash landing

I think for all the apps that went under review early February there is still hope (at least I would like to believe so).

I'm not too familiar with this part of the admissions process, but do schools ever ding before the decision release date? I always thought they left applicants hoping till that day, where the ding feels like a dagger to the heart....

Many schools at least have a middle deadline for interview invitation (unlike Haas) so that you know at that point, well before the decision date, that you're not in since you weren't interviewed and the best you can hope for is being waitlisted to interview. At least one school (Booth) I know dings people at the end of that interview notification period too, so you don't wait another several weeks before knowing whether you're truly out or not. This whole "you could receive an invitation to interview up until the deadline" is definitely the most stress-inducing method I've heard of.

Re: Haas (Full Time MBA) Class of 2016 Calling all applicants [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2014, 16:19
Guys, I have 2 questions I would love to have some help with:

1)My application just went "under review" yesterday (2/29) and I was wondering if it's normal for AdCom to BEGIN reviewing an application this late.

2)Once an application is "under review", how long does it take before knowing whether one has an interview invite?

Regarding question #2, I've gotten conflicting information from two different sources familiar with the application process. One source is saying I won't know until the notification deadline while the other source is saying, considering the late date, I should you hear something 1-2 weeks from now as long as they're interested in interviewing me.

Anyway, I just want to know when I should write off Haas should I not hear from them. Of course if I hear back this is all moot, but I'd be grateful to anyone who can help; and good luck to those still waiting to hear back!

What was your application status before 'application under review'?

I should've been more precise, my status was always "application under review". Whats changed is under where it says "Status Description" there was something to the effect of "we received your application, you may have some stuff missing, we'll let you know when there's an update in your status". Now, I didn't have anything missing but was told thats what the application status says initially.

Well now under "Status Description" it 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 see - i am still at "we received your application, you may have some stuff missing, we'll let you know when there's an update in your status"
My 2 cents (after an almost obsessive analysis) - there isn't a right answer to your questions and a lot of the timelines and change in statuses seems quite random.
sorry, not much help here.

they probably would if you were to get accepted ... I am sure they wont be relying on your prior year interview...

A lot of us waiting for the invite ... but time is obviously running out since Dday is Mar 26. I highly doubt they will be giving interview invites after the 20th or so ... I am pretty much going to cling on to some hope till follwoing Friday (14th) ... after which I say good bye

I received an invite this morning around 1000 PST. From Los Angeles. I was given the option to interview on-campus or off-campus. I didn't look at options for off-campus, but they only had availability for on-campus interviews M-TH through 18 Mar, if that helps at all. Certainly doesn't mean they won't add more slots at a later time though. I thought I recall that some people have been Skype interviewed only a couple days before decisions are sent out, so that's always possible too!

Hello,

Yes, I am an Indian applicant. But I am based in NY. I am flying to Berkeley to interview on campus.

Thanks for your wishes!

To all those who received interview invites: Did you get an e-mail invite? And was it reflected online on your account?

I applied to Anderson as well, and I got an e-mail invite, but I don't recall seeing that I was invited on my online account. So if I had dropped that email, I would not have known about the invite.

I am hoping that my aggressive spam filters didn't scoop away my Berkeley invite! :(
