I am a R2 applicant based in the bay area. I learned from this thread that Haas would email you, letting you know that your application is ready for review. I haven't receieved such an email from Haas yet. But I noticed my application status changed to "Application Under Review" back in December. Is it the same case for anybody? thanks...


Yes that is same as "your application is ready for review" status.

Congrats to everyone who has received calls! I am based out of Shanghai and am keeping my fingers crossed over the next two days for a call from Stephanie.


Hey, is that an interview call with Stephanie? Don't international applicants have local interviews with alums.


Oh I mean a call about getting accepted. I interviewed with a Shanghai alum.

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.



Hi londoncalling! Can you be a little more specific with what you meant by "some questions provided by the admissions team". What type of questions they were? Really deep about the program?

Thank you very much!

Peruvian -- check out this link, it should give you a pretty good idea about what questions admissions want their alumni interviewers to ask: http://blog.clearadmit.com/category/interview-reports/school/haas/

I wonder if they will send out R2 interview invites for next two days, since ad-com might be busy with all the acceptances. Does anyone have an estimate on Haas' yield?


50-60% is what i have seen a few places

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

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!

Wow. You must have a heck of a resume and essays to get into all those great schools with a sub-3.0 gpa. What do you think set you apart?

Congrats.



Thanks Shawshank. My GPA is a little tricky. My undergrad grades out of a 5.0 scale. The 2.9 is based on their conversion recommendation, but I'm not sure if schools follow that. Other than that, I have good work experience in manufacturing with increasing responsibility, lots of extra-curriculars, and a masters in engineering.

How'd you get the invite? Did you check on the website or did they send an email first?

Yep, they sent me an email. I believe my status on the website was changed to "Interview and Review" or something like that.

Hi all,

I confused by the wording in my Haas application status report.

This is what is in my login page.

Application Status: Application Under Review

Status Description
Your application is ready for review, but we may need additional materials before a final decision can be made. Please read the note below, which indicates what is missing from your application. Please feel free to call or e-mail us if you have any questions regarding these documents.

Additional Notes:
We will require an official transcript from **** University if you are invited to interview.


Are they waiting for my official transcript? But they clearly state that I should send it only if I got the invitation. Anyone else has this situation?

PS. I submitted on 12/29 and got only e-mail saying that they will contact me within 4-6 weeks if my application is incomplete. I did not receive any e-mail saying that my file is complete or incomplete.


You are fine. So if you get invited for an interview ask the ad-com whether you should bring your transcript to the interviewer or send it to the school. Right now you don't need do anything unless you got an interview invitation.
