Hi all,
any Canadians out there received an invite?


Nothing yet for Canada. Just emails titled "Berkeley MBA: Round One Update from Stephanie"

Stephanie is a huge tease.

Did anyone join the applicant chat they hosted this morning? Looks like there's a summary of some key points on the admissions Facebook page, and updates about interview invites for Rounds 1 and 2 applicants.

Late to the party but thought I'd share my experience thus far

Applied R1, invited to interview in early November, interview conducted week before Thanksgiving on campus with a 2nd year student

Background is European national, attended a highly ranked university in the US, math Econ with 3.5 GPA, 25 yo female currently working as a management consultant

Hope this helps and fingers crossed!

If R1 applicants haven't received an interview invite by the 31st, is it safe to assume its over for them? After all the R1 result deadline is Jan 10. :|

Does anyone else find it extremely annoying to receive a constant barrage of EMBA emails? Throw on top of that a financial aid email today AND no interview invite, and I'm in no mood. Le sigh!

Nope. I have not heard a word since I received an email sometime last week regarding holiday closure for the Admissions office. Although the email did say that interview invites would be out as early as late last week for R2 candidates, not sure if anyone has been invited... I certainly did not.

Guys, I would like to request everyone to please update their statuses if you have got interview invites, etc. It really helps not only those applying this year but also next year to get a clearer picture.

Congrats to those who have got interview invites.

More like end of this week (Dec 21). The admissions office is going on break for 2 weeks and will only have 1 week before the deadline. Although, there were a few invites that went out 1 week before the deadline. Keep you hopes up!

Question, Berkeley's website mentions the decision deadlines (Feb 21st for R2), but not the interview notice deadlines. Any idea when they inform R2 applicants as to whether they will be invited for the interview?

I believe I read that they will be issuing interview invitations all the way up to the decision deadline.

What does Haas typically do for acceptances? Call the day before? It looks like last year deadline was Jan 27 and calls happened as early as Jan 9, can that be right?

stupandaus: thanks for the info. When did you get the e-mail telling you that your application was complete and your status changed to "under review". Trying to get a feel for their average review time.

thanks!

Received the e-mail 12/19/12 around noon CST. Checked my application after and the status had been changed to "Interview and Review."

As far as submission, my application was submitted the night before the deadline (11/28/12). Looks like just about 3 week review time for my case.

Thanks!

What I meant, was when did you get the e-mail saying "Your file is now ready for review by the admissions committee." ? Haas sends this after you submitted, once they have verified it is all ready for review.

I am guessing this the time at which they actually start reading your application. (I received that mail yesterday)
