Rejected. Tomorrow this may repeat considering that Wharton is sending out 'ding' decisions tomorrow ....

In a way, it is good that it will all be over soon. Closure is better than the wait. I had already started preparing for another GMAT attempt. This is going to help me focus better hopefully.

Congrats to all those who got admitted!! you all are definitely going to make a great class at haas. I like the culture there and Bay Area is a fun place to be at. Enjoy your days at haas.

That's the spirit Saurav.

And don't forget to get your rejection feedback after this admission cycle is over. It will be very useful if you are applying again next year.

Rejected without interview. Not very surprising considering I haven't heard anything yet. Haas is an inredibly competitive school. Congratulations to those admitted! You must be really amazing candidates.

Luckily, I'm going to Tuck, and I would have anyway. Colder, but I'm used to it :)

Accepted!

They sure made me wait. I didn't get the call until after dinner on decision day (2/21), but no complaints now!

Have any of the other admits received scholarship money from Haas? It seems like they are ultra tight compared to some of the other schools.

I just got an email this morning re: financial aid. It looks like there are scholarships, but you have to apply for them. I don't know if there are any automatic scholarships, so to speak, like other schools have.

In the acceptance e-mail I received they said "Please note that all of our scholarships are by application after admission." Since the scholarship application page includes both need-based and merit scholarships I take that to mean that they don't do like done other schools as notify at the time of acceptance with "automatic" scholarships.

To clarify, I was a rd 1 applicant and applied (unsuccessfully) for a few scholarships. Just curious if anyone on here has had any success with their scholarship application.

Hi dilbert99, same here. R1 applicant and got the email yesterday saying I wasn't getting any scholarship. A friend of mine who got in as well didn't get any either. According to the financial aid website, "Approximately 70 percent of Haas students receive some form of financial assistance, including scholarships and loans.". It would be interesting to have more details about that statistic, to me most of those 70% must be helped with loans.

Hi Hern007, do you have any source backing this up ?

Yeah I think they're very cagey on how much in scholarships they give out. My feeling is that it's qutie a bit lower than other schools. That being said, I don't think the school is having "financial issues." I wouldn't extrapolate whatever issues the state of California is having (real or imagined) to Haas.
