Tried checking my status on the website and when I click "Status Report" it gives me an error. Maybe something is about to change. For the love of god please.

Edit: Well that was short lived. No change :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Any thoughts on what is the order for sending out interview invites? -- by strength of application/ by region or country?

I am a candidate from India, and yet waiting for an interview notification. Wondering if any one from India has got an invite.

Got my interview invitation on Jan.24, and did it with an Alumnus from Shanghai today.
The interviewer is extremely nice and encouraging. Hope he gives me positive feedback, Haas is really my dream school. Now fingers crossed

@Msgorgeous - could you please provide more details like the date when you applied and when your application went into "under review" status?

I have heard that is NOT by strength of app.

Someone else who may know sth about it?

I think it's totally random.

Definitely not strength of app since that would mean they'd have to review all apps first, put them in order and then start inviting people.
Also, I don't think they'd do it based on region, you can see that people from all over the world are getting invites in no particular order. They may give apps from the same region to the same people to review to get a better picture of applicants from a particular region though.

Yeah, they've said it multiple times that it's totally random.

I'm clinging to that hope since I still haven't heard anything!

Had my interview. Aside from the standard questions, my discussion included the following:
- What do you find most frustrating at work?
- How do you define "intelligence"?

All in all I was very happy with the interview experience. My alum was very personable, seemed interested in the questions he was asking and the responses I was giving and pried deeper in a few areas. Consistent with a lot of commentary on Haas interviews I would say it seemed to be mostly about discerning "fit", but I could be misinterpreting. In any case the experience helped me confirm the notions I previously had about the culture of the school community.

I'm sure this has been covered before, but he mentioned that Haas interviewers are not provided with any part of your application except for your CV, and that he was expected to provide his feedback within 24 hrs (not 100% sure if that was a school mandate or his own habit).

It has been very quite for last 3 to 4 days in terms of interview invites. I wonder if they will release a bunch in next week.

Just saw the dreaded update in my status:
"Your application for admission to the Berkeley Full-time MBA Program is under review by the Admissions Committee. You will be contacted at the decision deadline to see your final admissions decision. "

Can almost hear the DING ....

Have the same message under my status report as well. So Wait list w/o interview is the only possibility left?

Isn't that what it's always said when it's been under review (ever since submissions started being reviewed by the AdCom) or did the wording change?

If you browse into earlier discussion of the thread, you will see that many people had seen their status changed to this prior to the interview invites. I actually remember some posted said that he/she got interview invite week after his/her status changed like this. Maybe there is nothing to be assumed at this stage?

Hmm, I think I missed that. My status initially said something like "Application under review" . . . "we will contact you in case .... material missing ...." and it changed to the above today. Interesting, paradise not lost yet .....

Yeah, the Under Review message doesn't mean anything. Patience, my friends.

Here are my 2 cents on the Status changes:

The Applilcation status remains in "Application under review" as soon as they have verified that all your documents are present.

Status description (when you click on "status report" on the main screen) is what changes and this will give you an idea as to when exactly the adcom guys start reviewing your application.

Stage 1: The description reads something like " Your application is ready for review......" and under additional notes they put in comments if they will need your official transcripts etc at a later stage if you are invited for interview

Stage 2: When the adcom guys actually pick your application for review, the status description changes to this -
"Your application for admission to the Berkeley Full-time MBA Program is under review by the Admissions Committee. You will be contacted at the decision deadline to see your final admissions decision"

Once your status description changes to this, you can start looking for an interview invite. Now, nobody knows how long it takes to get interview invites after Stage 2. Some got it in a week, others even longer..... probably based on how may hands your application passed through or based on availability of an alum for interview etc etc.

So all of you whose status description reads like whats mentioned under stage 1, do not panic until you reach stage 2.
others under stage 2, hope for the best!!

Mine is in stage 2 from 18th and I am in a panic mode right now.
