I'm in it now. The coursework isn't terrible, but the system they use for the homework and the final is pretty bad. It's not a bad class, just the technology they use gets in the way more often than not.

Thanks Packet! You feel like everyone who is taking the course should get an "automatic" pass if they do all the work and study appropriately? I just don't want a brain fart during the final to ruin my chances of matriculating into Haas.

It's certainly not an automatic pass, but according to the professor, everyone passed last year.

R2 WL here - Denied Admission!
Profile : 710(Q48,V39);completed pre-reqs; 9 yrs WorkEx in IT Consulting; Female;Project Management; good extra curriculars!

Somehow, I'm unable to leave this pursuit and move on. I'm planning to apply next year with a bang!

Question to IT folks who got admission: How did you make your profiles diverse and special? Please share your stories and inspire us!


hey fremont. To answer your question, I would approach the problem differently. I'm also from an IT background and instead of trying to create a profile that was someone else, I tried to become the person they wanted to see; the profile would follow naturally.

when I finished my gmat in june 2012, I realized I was either too late or way too early for applying -- I applied for the class of 2016 and was accepted off waitlist in rd 2. In any case, I had about 6 months to boost my dreaded IT profile before applying. Here are the things I did:

- I joined a toastmasters club and within 3 months placed at a speech contest, took a high officer position, and chaired a big open house event. Right before I was accepted off the waitlist early 2013 I was nominated to be the area governor.
- I took extra responsibility at work and for the next review was given my biggest merit increase to date, this info I provided to adcom
- I followed my passion for bodybuilding and stepped onstage for the first time. I placed 1st in three categories and was invited to compete professionally in Reno (did not).
- I started volunteering (though I did not mention this at all in my application)

So all the things I did prove that you can achieve an incredible amount within a short span. With the exception of #3, you can argue took over 15 years, the others anyone could presumably start / finish before now and the next application season. And don't assume I'm some outspoken natural leader that can achieve goals easily. In fact I became that person because I knew that was a.) who I wanted to be b.) who I needed to be for business school

One of the things I did early on was take a hard look at myself even before I had the idea to apply. I looked at myself and asked "can you score over the 90th percentile on the gmat", and I said no. I knew I did not have the skills or the willpower to study for it. Over 6 months later and after getting over the GMAT hurdle, I took a hard look at myself again and asked "are you Haas material". I said no, not yet. and then I proceeded to build my leadership, character, whatever it took until finally I believed it myself.

Congrats to all those admitted!

For waitlisted candidates, can we have a roll call?

Also, can candidates with multiple admits and plans to pursue other opportunities also drop a one liner here.

This will help us waitlisted souls estimate our slim chances.

I know this does not sound a very encouraging way to get into the program but alas we aren't left with other choices!

Hey guys, I'm a R1 applicant, and was just waitlisted for the 3rd time.


That is brutal, almost makes me feel somewhat okay with get denied now rather than waitlisted one more time and eventually denied. There can't be many spots left.

Yeah, I can't imagine there are a whole lot of spots at this point. If Haas is the place for you, I'd be working on a re-application for the fall and trying to strengthen any weak areas. You may get in this year, but I wouldn't be counting on it.

Anyone know when the feedback sessions will take place? From a skim of last year's forum, it appears they happened in July. I'm gone most of the month of July on personal and work travel, and want to make sure I have an opportunity to get feedback.
