Has anyone done a Skpe interview with the extended arms of the admissions committee.
Any experiences you guys would like to share ?

Haas confuses me.

On the 8/14/12 online chat, it reads:
Quote:
The interview process starts a few weeks after the round deadline, but will continue right up to the decision release deadline given the volume of applications and our holistic approach to evaluating every application.

So the interviews are conducted up until the decision deadline.

However, 4 months later, on the 12/13/12 online chat, it reads regarding the interview process (R1 in this case):
Quote:
As Stephanie mentioned in her email update this week we will continue to send out Round 1 interview invites up until the notification deadline in January.

So invites are sent up until the notification deadline, as opposed to what stated earlier.

Do you understand this differently and care to clear things out for me?


Honestly, I think they mean the same thing, but are just worded differently. I always personally understood that to mean that they could invite you to interview up to the deadline date. So if the notification date is on 2/21, you could theoretically get an interview invite on 2/20. I don't know how they will do that- notify, interview, make a final decision, give an admissions offer- in 24 hours, but I guess that is their MO. Perhaps if they have X number of offers to extend, and by the end of the round they still have a few spaces left and you're on the cusp, they then decide to interview you.

I guess all in all, if you're someone who hasn't heard yet, don't lose hope until they release decisions. I know- easier said than done.

At this point, with only a little more than a week left, I'm just hoping to get waitlisted.

Could people who interviewed please share their experience regarding the official documents submission?

I have mailed mine almost 2 weeks ago (I'm from Europe) but the online application's status report still says that I should mail them. Unfortunately my country's postal service told me their tracking service screwed up so I have no idea whether it has been delivered or not. I'm a bit anxious as if it has been lost, I must send another one (this time by Fedex or UPS) before the end of the week for it to make it to the school before decision date.

In your experience, how much time did it take for Haas to process your documents and notify you about their reception? Also, were you sent an e-mail or did only the "send your docs" notification disappear from the online application's status?

Any input would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I sent mine back in December and received confirmation from Haas exactly two weeks after I requested to have them sent. They should notify you once they have been received.

How does Haas send invites? Is it on a rolling basis? I am a R3 applicant. Has any R3 applicant been invited for the interview?

Wait until the status description reads something like " ...is currently reviewed by admissions committee".
Once it reaches above mentioned stage, you can expect invites. There is no time limit on how long it stays in the same stage. It varies for different applicants.

Rolling basis. I have never seen huge waves with multiple people
getting invites on the same day from Haas.

A quick update, I had my interview with an alumn in his office in my city.

Conversation was very casual and relaxed and we even strayed off-topic a couple of times to discuss various topics that came up. Overall, the interview lasted well over an hour (for which he apologized at the end, not that I was concerned :)), with the interviewer also spending some time talking about his experience at Haas even without questions.

Some questions that came up:
- Walk me through your resume
- Why MBA? Why now? Why Haas?
- Tell me about a leadership experience / what kind of a leader are you?
- Tell me about a time when you had an idea but it was rebuffed by the team/superiors.
- Tell me a couple of traits/words you would describe yourself by. + examples
- Would peers describe you with the same words?
- Where would you go on an internship? (He suggested some additional options as well.)
+ Questions

Overall it was a very pleasant experience, time really flew by. Good luck everyone!
