Do you still need TOEFL for Haas even if you have a M.S. from a University in the U.S. ?


No, you don't. See this from their admission requirement page. esp the highlighted part.

The UC Berkeley Graduate Division requires that all applicants who received their degrees from countries in which the official language is not English submit official evidence of English Language Proficiency. This requirement applies to applicants from Bangladesh, Burma, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa, the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, and most European countries. This requirement also applies to US citizens who received their undergraduate degrees in these countries or regions. Only applicants who have completed a full year of US university-level coursework with a grade of B or better are exempt from this requirement.

Hi,
I have a question pertaining to transcripts in case of an international undergrad degree.

The application form says: "If your international institution does not issue official copies of your transcripts or degree certificates, please upload scanned copies of the originals with your online application found under the Education section. "

Did you just upload scanned copies of your mark-sheets? Did you have to send anything by mail?
I did my undergrad from Mumbai University.

Thanks!

Has anyone else interviewed yet? Any advice? Thanks!



Congratulations! And best of luck!! Check past comments on this thread - someone had posted the questions that he was asked during the on-campus Haas Interview.
It seemed like it was a fit interview basically and the interviewer only had a resume.

Could you share some information on when you applied and your background! It would help some of us still waiting to hear back.

Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

I received an email with the subject Berkeley MBA: For Round Two Applicants. A part of the email said: We anticipate interview invitations to be extended beginning in December up until our Round Two notification date of February 21.

Does that mean that there will be invitations going out this upcoming week for R2 applicants? I think that is so soon! How long do R1 waited until the first invitations started going out?

I think Berkeley's R1 and R2 interviews will definitely overlap. R1 interviews, for the most part, seem to have gone out to international applicants and a few R1 applicants.

I do think it's so soon that they are releasing interview invites for R2 applicants 1-2 weeks after application submit deadline...

Hey Guys,

Does anyone have any insight into the latest interview % and interview admit % stats? I searched around gmatclub and other sites and I found one source but its dated 2008.

"Haas: Interviews around 25%-ish, and accepts around 65-75% (they have a slightly higher acceptance rate than most schools because of Super Saturday--a higher majority of students"
