Congrats to those still getting calls! It looks like Haas is running a little late this year. In the past they did all the calls the day before d-day and then released decisions online in the morning. There is still hope for those who haven't heard yet. :-D

Waitlist for me....third one now, pretty Lame! I knew I could handle one waitlist well, especially being the GSB, but I have been piling them on, Sloan and now Haas. I feel pretty burnt out and dejected, so much so that I really don't even want to do much with the WL crap.

Couldn't agree more! Congrats eltoro, I'm envious of the decisions you're going to have to make about which school to attend!

Waitlist for me... Moving on to giving more info to the AdCom!

I know it sucks but on the brightside you were not rejected by any of those great schools like I was. You just need that final push. Come on.

Good luck man. With a 770 GMAT and 3.8 I would be shocked if you didn't ultimately get in to one of those three. I applied to Stanford and didn't even get the WL, so that's a pretty incredible accomplishment in and of itself. Obviously these schools all see something they like in you.

Ding for me with interview. Pretty disappointed but i guess it happens. I will take advantage of the opportunity to talk with adcoms this June and see where I can improve my chances for re-application.

They allow you to contact them in the summertime for feedback? I tried finding anything about applicant feedback on the website, but it redirected me to the 'reapplicants' section, which wasn't helpful.

Haas is one of the few schools that offers applicants feedback. I think they don't offer it until after round 4 is over though.

I think the following can help -
1) Addtional recommendation letter that shows a different side of you / addresses any obvious weakness
2) Additional community activities and leadership experiences since submission
3) Professional updates such as promotions, performance evaluations, projects completed and/or other accomplishments since submission.

Without really knowing for sure on how things will play out and what exactly would help enhance candidacy, I would tend to agree with stayfrosty.

Personally, I'm thinking additional letter of recommendation and perhaps a personal statement. What about you?

Us waitlisters got to stick together! Haha

Thank you Stayfrosty6 and @dwchin for your response. Looks like we have lots to do..
@dwchin - I agree we should stick together, help each other out :) I read the past transcripts for Haas Waitlist chats a noted a few interesting things:
1) R1 Waitlist candidates will be notified before R2 waitlist about a final decision.
2) They will review all the waitlist candidates together again in Mid/end March. So we have until then to beef up our candidacy. A decision will be provided that will be admitted/denied/waitlisted further.
3) If you decide to provide an additional personal statement then they recommended it should not be more than 1 page.

Like you said, it is hard to provide additional information without really knowing what they view as a shortcoming on your profile. My plan is thus to reinforce all aspects:
1) Have one of my original recommenders talk in detail about my quant ability.
2) Have a second new recommender talk about overall leadership potential and a more personal side of me.
3) Take a trip to Haas. I have only attended chats/spoken to students so far
4) Write a personal statement saying how my visit further reinforced my interest in Haas talk about new community work I have done since, I have changed my job so how that has brought me closer to my long term goal.

Does that sound a little overbearing?

This is a little dated, but the Haas Director of Admissions talks about being waitlisted..
