Not me - I am R1 and was interviewed by alum. The wait is KILLING! Does anyone know more about the deadline tomorrow? Does it mean we will have an email first thing in the morning or we have to wait till midnight tomorrow PST time?

Looks like US admits are going out today. Only seen 1, but I am sure there are others.


Anyone else hear about US calls?

I also received an interview but no admit call. Haas by far has the strangest setup.

I saw one or two acceptances in US on BTG community.
Remember Haas can handle only 240 students so they extend admission offer to around 440 people during the whole admission season. So we might not see that many people getting accepted on this community compare to some of the bigger schools such as HBS and Booth.

Haven't heard anything here either in the U.S. (interviewed R1). In past years it seems they have called U.S. candidates last but I'm starting to get worried.

For Haas, is a good idea to send an additional rec from a prominent alumni?

- R2 applicant, no interview invite received (yet, hopefully)

It can't hurt. However, it's most important that the person knows you well and can talk about his/her experience with you. Haas and all the other major schools have emphasized many times that you should not request a rec letter from a prominent alum that barely knows you.

Well- after all my nail biting and crazy anxiety, i got the call! i'm in Texas.

Like all other posters, Stephanie was very specific in explaining why I was admitted and what specifically in my application appealed to the admissions team.

Thanks to everyone for posting- I think this forum is the only thing that kept me sane for the last 2 days. I hope all of you that are waiting get some good news very soon! :-D

Congratulations !!!
When did you get the call central time? I cannot figure out from the time stamp on your post. Did your online application status change?

I'm assuming that if I've not received a call at this point (located in CST) that I am never getting it. Any thoughts?
