Thanks Machichi for some help there. I read your blog, interesting read indeed. :) I am also 2-3 days a week soccer player.
I am originally from India so every song buzzing in my mind is generally a Bollywood number or some old Pink Floyd song so that doesn't help much.
I will have to figure this one out soon. Although I have drafts of three other essays ready so I am not as stressed as I was last year. :)


I see you're a blogger yourself! You haven't posted in a bit--are you retaking the GMAT again?

I don't see anything wrong with a Pink Floyd or a Bollywood song. I mean, I guess the Bollywood might remind the adcom too acutely that you're an Indian applicant, but if it conjures up real, authentic, and interesting memories of your life, I don't see any problem with that. And well, Pink Floyd is a classic! :)

I thought about referencing one of my favorite songs, River by Joni Mitchell and how it was totally ruined for me when I heard it playing at a sex shop in Chicago. Haha, then I decided that fell into the category of "TMI" (too much information).

Not really. Only advice I have is to start with the Berkeley essays if you can, because they cover a wide variety of topics and you may be able to use content from its essays for other schools.

Could anyone get the TOEFL waiver from Haas ? I am so keen on applying to Haas (R2) but no time for the stupid Toefl.



I tried but they flatly refused. My app is ready but for the toefl requirements. I owned and managed a daily english newspaper but even that was not enough for them! But toefl is an useless exam the last time i took it i was hungover after just doing 2 hours of prep. I got a 108.. too bad the score is not valid anymore.

I submitted for R1 in October and received and interview invitation last week. I was a little surprised myself - but it seems like they are slowly trickling out. Good luck everyone!

Is there anybody else who's facing problems in uploading their transcripts/resume to Berkeley's online application? I'm uploading pdf version of my transcripts and resume but am getting the following errors repeatedly -

The form was not submitted because of the following error(s)

The resume file 'xxxx.pdf' is not a valid file type. Please upload a valid file type your resume.


Just bumped into this question and although I presume the problem probably has been solved since then, I guess it might be useful to share the answer if anyone else bumps into this problem:

Try uploading with IE, as I got the same error when trying to upload with Firefox, but IE worked fine.

Applying for R2 - lets hope I make it in time.

Danish/Australian. Design / Project Management / Venture background. GMAT 730, Q47, V45. GPA 3.53 - Major: Theater

My biggest worry is that my Quant score is relatively low for Berkeley and my major not being quant focussed makes this worse (though I did take lots of math, engineering and business/finance classes). Any suggestions/words of advice very welcome.

Anyway, good luck to all!


Hi there, I would use the supplemental essays to explain all the quant work you did and intensity of it. Also, if possible I would ask reccomenders to back up the claim as well.

Also other essays are good place to display that. For example one of the Haas's defining principal is "Confidence without attitude" and one of the key definition for that is "We make decisions based on evidence and analysis". This is clearly reflected in their E3 and you can use it to display how you proposed a change and supported it with some solid data analysis. This way you will kill two birds with one stone. Culture fit and display your quant skills.

I hope this helped.

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!


My university gave a trascript that lists all the courses I took and my performance (grades) in each. If mark-sheets are the closest documents you have to something like that, you just need to upload scan copies of those.

I believe you need to arrange for your college to send official versions of these documents directly to Berkeley in the event that you get invited to interview. It's better to take care of this beforehand as they only give you 2-3 weeks before they decide to delay or jepordize your admission for this reason.

Also, I read somewhere that you need to upload a scan copy of your degree certificate if its from an international institution. Just FYI as I saw that in the last minute. Hope that helps.

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!

Berkeley is very annoying. So glad I got into another school (that DIDN'T harrass me with irrelevant e-mails!)

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)


I received that e-mail 11/30/12

Okay guys, calm down. No need to get into a junk measuring contest over schools. We all have preferences and not everyone's preferences aligns with Businessweek or US News rankings. Finance "rockstars" are not the sole measuring stick of what makes a great bschool. Nor are acceptance rates the end all and be all in selectivity. Please do not turn GC into the shitshow that is WSO.

Can someone kindly let me know which airport is more advisable to fly into if I am going to Haas campus ? I was invited to Super Saturday and trying to plan my trip. Also anyone who is attending and is willing to split a hotel room , to mitigate costs, should feel free to PM me.

Last year R1 applicants started getting acceptance calls 2-3 days before the decision date. I guess today is the day adcom should start making calls for R1 candidates.

Interviewed in early December. Keeping my fingers crossed and eagerly waiting for the call.

I'm guessing they are beginning with international students because of the time difference.

Good luck everyone, hope to see you soon!


Congratulations! Let's hope they make it over to the west coast soon.
