Can someone kindly let me know which airport is more advisable to fly into if I am going to Haas campus ? I was invited to Super Saturday and trying to plan my trip. Also anyone who is attending and is willing to split a hotel room , to mitigate costs, should feel free to PM me.

Oakland is the easiest choice and it is often cheaper too. It's about 20 minutes to campus. If you do go through SFO you will be about an hour drive (more with traffic) from Berkeley.

imo, oakland airport would be the most convenient. Not only would it be cheaper/faster to take the bart (subway system), SFO is notorious for delays. 9/10 of my flights have been delayed by 1hr+, especially if you are flying in past 5pm.

I had my interview the week before christmas, but was unable to post the questions due to a crazy hectic holiday travel schedule (and obnoxious airline staff and lost luggage). Hopefully this should help R1ers who are still preparing for interviews and of course people in later rounds.

Interview was with an alum, and he came in with a set of questions he wanted to ask (he also checked my linkedin profile beforehand, asked me if I had checked his and whether I knew his background)

Tell me about yourself.
Why MBA? ST/LT career goals.
Why Haas?
Tell me about a time you had to lead a team.
Tell me about a time you had to resolve a conflict witin a team.
Strengths and weaknesses.
Which of Haas’s core values do you see in yourself?

Concluded with my questions for him. Good Luck!

Do Super Saturday invites only go out to people in the US? Does anyone living overseas, i.e. Asia get Super Saturday invites?

Kingfalcon, may I ask if you got a Super Saturday invite? Or a separate interview invite? Also, when did you receive the e-mail that says your application is under review?

Appreciate your help.

Yes, it's a Super Saturday invitation. And it looks like I got the "complete" email about a week after submitting.

Ditto here. No word at all, and only 1 week left? Pretty sure it's not going to happen.

Same here. A spot on the WL to drag this waiting game out even further wouldn't do much to relieve this anxiety either.
