Tried IE and Firefox with no luck. Anything in particular you would recommend? :)

If nothing else works, I'll drop in a mail to adcom tomorrow, although I may have to wait until monday to get a response.


If I'm in your position I would just put in zeros in there, I don't think it's something that will break or make your application. I have just submitted for R2 too myself, best of luck for all of us! :-D

I'm applying for R2 (Nov 29th). I gave TOEFL iBT on 16th this month and obviously haven't received my scores yet. The online application does not let me enter just the test date and leave the scores as blank, even though the instructions at the top seem to say otherwise.

"If you have recently taken the TOEFL/IELTS and your scores are not yet available, enter the date of the test and leave the score areas blank."

Has anyone else been in such situation? If yes, is there is a recommended course of action (enter 0s for all the scores)?


Call Adcom. Simple as that. They're there to help.

Anyone else repeating themselves in the essays. Especially in essay #2 (your greatest accomplishment) and essay #5 (-the part about how your experience so far has helped you prepare you to achieve your goal)?

I went personal with #2. Definitely don't repeat yourself.

I don't think it's a problem as long as you don't go into details in both essays - in other words, if there's no overlapping content.

In my achievement essay I present a project I worked on in detail, explaining the task, my role, the result and why I consider it important. I mention the same project in my #5 essay but it's just two sentences to highlight it as one of my main reasons in deciding to pursue an MBA.

Anyone have school or interview guides for Haas they would like to share? If so, PM me. I have GSB, Sloan, HBS, and more that I can share.

Yeah, that was so lame! Lol... and I haven't even been invited to interview, so that e-mail was even worse for me.

Fourth'd that. I bet all of the adcom was like, "Watch me lift the hopes and dreams of a thousand kids... then slam it into the ground with a reverberating splat."

I submitted an app for R1 and have not heard back as far as an interview goes. This morning a faculty member from my undergraduate institution informed me he just sent a letter on my behalf after hearing that Haas was my first choice. Although it was a kind gesture, I am nervous that the unsolicited letter will be viewed as spam and actually negatively impact my chances. Should I send a note to adcom explaining that I was unaware? Should I ignore it? I welcome your feedback!

If I were you, I wouldn't do anything because you risk making it a bigger deal than it already is.

Phew, submitted for R2 ! :)

Had to squeeze in TOEFL prep into the last couple of weeks which made the otherwise straightforward process tiresome. All the best to those waiting for R1 updates and to fellow R2 warriors.

Haha, same here. Just submitted for R2, and I also had to take another TOEFL.

Good luck to everyone!
