My status still says "Waitlist", but the description underneath it on the Status page has changed to say, "Thank you for accepting our offer for a place on our waitlist." I also received an e-mail from Haas acknowledging that I had accepted the waitlist spot.

I'm thinking about taking a Berkeley extension online math course to boost my quant profile. I assume that the school values certain courses more than others (calc > stats or pre calc) but can anyone confirm?

The course is a bit pricey too (~$900), do you guys recommend any alternatives?

I'm not sure about schools preferring one course over other. Anyhow, if you have not had so solid grades in one of these (or haven't taken them), your decision becomes easier. I think UCLA also offers courses. You may check those. Finally, if you don't want to spend that money, check out Coursera or a similar MOOC platform. They generally have basic math courses running pretty much all the time.


On a different note - anyone withdrawing from waitlist or considering other options?

I'm considering visiting Haas on the next weeks.. Is there a "Days @ Haas" for Round 2 (and Round 1 accepted after Waitlist)? Because if I visit Haas now I don't think it will be feasible to visit again at Days@Haas (I live in Brazil, it is a expensive flight to SFO)

Jnmba2014, i have a lopsided verbal/quant GMAT score and am currently enrolled in UCLA online extension's "Intro to calculus'.

I considered Berkeley's but UCLA was a bit cheaper. Overall I'm liking the class

There is a "Days @ Haas 2" that is usually near the end of April (I think this year it's the 24th/25th/26th)

Yea. Me, too. Maybe just one. I can't pester more people, seriously. Also, I think Haas has been great in holding that WL chat right after the decisions and also, in telling us that they dont review material until 1st March. I'd really like other schools to show this transparency.

They mentioned that the results would be rolling as well. They can choose to accept/ding as they review. However, I think further waitlisted applicants would only get to know on the final result day (not 100% sure about the WL thing).

For me it is quite unclear how they handle this rolling decision.. They will start reviewing on 01/March but the payment date for the ones that were accepted in only on 11/March, probably we will hear the results by this date..

True. But, there might be a few who have already declined their acceptances. Anyway you slice it, rolling decisions is always a pain. Good luck!

I know that its only March 3rd, but any updates as to where people stand with waitlist status? Any calls or change in status (will this happen when they re-open files?) on the admissions site? I understand its been the weekend but I figured I'd ask.
