I don't think selecting the essay review was wise as you will not be able to act upon the feedback provided. It will more than likely just make you insecure to know there are things you could have done or worded better.

I applied for the November round and haven't heard anything back yet at all. I do live on the East Coast so I likely wouldn't be invited to on-campus events. Has anyone who applied in the November round gotten invited to an interview yet? If so, are you in the Bay area?

I think it could be very wise, depending on whether you apply to any more schools this year or possibly next. Insight like that from an actual adcom, and director no less, is about as valuable as you can find. I would pay a hefty fee for a top school director to tell me exactly what they thought of my essays! Consider yourself lucky and use it for all its worth.

I was invited to Super Saturday even though I'm based on the East Coast (MA).

Super Saturday is primarily for non-bay area applicants, according to a few old admissions blog posts. Does anyone know if all Super Saturday invites have gone out or do they continue to give those out over the course of the next few weeks? I'm still waiting/hoping myself for an interview invite (R2 applicant).

I obviously can't be sure of this, but I am very confident R2 invites are still going out. Don't panic just yet.

I’m an R2 applicant in the D.C. area and just received an interview invite. The email didn’t mention Super Saturday but gave me the option to interview in my area or on campus (I had planned on doing a local alumni interview since a cross-country trip would be challenging).

Hi all,

I appreciate this busy forum. Very helpful.

A couple notes below:

1- it looks like it takes about 2.5 weeks from the date they send you the "your application is ready for review" e-mail, for the ad committee to review your file and send out an invite (or not). So, plenty of hope for a lot of us R2 applicants. (Disclaimer: this estimate is only based on 1 data point...)

2- Haas first Trivia contest through their Facebook page was a great success. Their latest video contest ... not so much. It looks like they got only a few submissions. ( like me, most applicants might be camera shy!) ;)

3- question: can somebody help me and share some detailed information about what this "super saturday" is.

thanks all!
Keep the hopes up!

For me it was actually over a month: I received the "Your file is ready for review" email on December 3rd and got an interview invite on January 7th. I have no idea what that means, except that the process is probably more random than we think and there is hope for everyone.

Thanks for the info! This is great news for most of us... (or just a longer torture...) either way; I'll wait ! ;)

So, what I'm gathering from this is, as a first round applicant who has not been invited to interview as of today (Jan 8), I should pretty much move on, brace myself for the denial, begin drinking heavily?

Has anyone else gotten calls yet? This forum has been surprisingly quiet today- based on past years was expecting more activity.

Fingers crossed for all R1 applicants! :-D

London - I didn't even notice that, I must have forgotten to change some default forum setting. Anyway, yes, I would assume they are still doing international calls.

I would suggest you be very clear as to why you want to go to Berkeley, and read up on their mission statement and the things that they say are important in their culture and community. I had an alumni interview and they clearly had some questions that had been provided by the admissions team to determine how well the applicant had researched the school and program.
