"That's probably the same reason UCLA makes the deposit for R1 due on 1/31 when Berkeley announces R1 admits on 2/1."

Actually, from reading last year's thread, it looks they called up most of the admits one day before the R1 decision date. Of course, the online status was updated on the decision day itself.

So chances are that you'll be in a position to save your deposit money, if things go your way.

Still waiting and hoping. Strangely my Statistics course went from being "Complete," where it had been for about a month, to "Incomplete."

hey guys,

looking at the class entering in fall 2012, seems like everyone is ATLEAST has a manager title.
so does that mean being an individual contributor in a big organization would hurt my chances?
i am a typical asian male in software engineering... :(

Interesting !! The same question came up in a recent info session that i went to. The current students who actually did the Q&A were all titled manager and above. One of the prospective students asked - Are only mgrs and above hired ?. To which, the students responded - No, they have a good representation of individual contributors also in their cohorts. Hope that helps !! :-)

I work for one of the top tech companies (Google/Apple/Microsoft/Amazon) and have the same issue ... I don't have a lead or manager title. This fact has got me nervous.

Looking their facebook group page.
Almost all the Asian males/females have a manager title. You could check their linkedin profiles.
I am not sure if there is ANY hardware/software engineer in the list. I see Product managers, Program Managers, etc... :(
That is a bit discouraging because I know for a fact that people like me are in Engineering because we love it and now need an MBA to leverage our product development knowledge...
But I hope whoever said that they have a good representation of individual contributors knows of a few hands-on engineers...
Or is it a case that hands-on engineers should not be applying to EWMBA? :(

Well, I mean what else were they going to say? "Yeah...you guys without Manager titles got suckered into applying to a school where you have no shot...mwhahaha"

It's the revenge of the business folks man! They are sticking it to the Engineers ;)
BTW: Program Manager isn't really a manager in the typical sense of the word. I would consider them IC's.

From what I have seen, I would consider a few Project Managers and Product Managers as IC's too...
But the fact that I don't have ANY sort of a managerial title makes me VERY nervous... :cry:

Dude..the way I see it...you have done your part. No point worrying over things within the black box. Speculating on the other hand is definitely fun :)

Speculating is definitely fun.
Coming up with random statistics and then guessing over what might happen on 1st feb is also fun...
I was just counting... and seems like there are 82+ people (out of 250 admitted students) from Indian origin in the class that joined in fall 2012.. :D
talk about being over represented... I am sure that 75% of those folks would be in tech.. :D

LOL. I think the "top tech company" part might help you with AdCom.

24% of last year's incoming class came from Engineering, 11% from Project Management. I'd say you have a pretty decent shot. The biggest problem is that there are a lot of engineering applying and Haas doesn't want a class that's 75% engineers.

Thanks for sharing
The one comment I would add is that for EWMBA the % of applicants interviewed to interview is much higher around ~60-80% based on various responses on this thread....
