I meant essays in the application. Do the schools think that essays in the application could be written by someone else.
So lets have people write essays as part of their GMAT exam (which hopefully cannot be hoodwinked)...


That's what I mean. There's nothing stopping someone from paying someone else to write their application essays. Like I said, I've heard it has been a problem in the past. That and add in all the 'application consultants' these days that edit and revise essays and adcoms have no idea if the essay is actually written by you.

Thus, the AWA. The testing center takes your photo and checks your ID. You are the only person that could have written that essay. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it shows you can write an essay in english.

Not really, they'll admit some R1 WLs in R2 also. But if you get WL'ed in R2, then you're waiting all the way to R3 decision date to know if you're in.

Like i mentioned before "Not the best part of my application". Mid 600's. :-). Like i also said "Atleast based on what i believe, candidates should be provided an opportunity to interview with adcom. A direct conversation will show the depth and breadth of experience, personality (composure, communication, style, etc) and the true value one will bring to a highly diversified class of Haas". I hope and am confident that Haas will provide this opportunity to all candidates. Waitlisting without an interview is really not a qualitative way of filtering candidates out. My 2 cents. No interview still :-) !!

Well, you got in to Anderson. That's no small feat. You're still going to a top school. So, I wouldn't worry about it. If Haas wants you, great. If not, Anderson is pretty awesome.

Don't worry. They still have 3 more days to call you for an interview. Else they might just call you in R2.. :(

I wouldn't get your hopes up. They'll call when they call.

@ calculas
I am in an identical situation: 1) I have a admit from UCLA and am waiting for Haas decision.
Couple of questions:
1. Did they ask for the admission letter as a proof?
2. Did they take a few days to process it or was it quick, coz I am thinking if they take few days then it doesn't really matter as they will declare the decision by Thu/Fri itself this week.

Thanks

Hi guys,
I applied round 1 and haven't yet been invited to interview. Yesterday a current student sent me an email saying that the admissions office mentioned that I was applying and that he would be happy to answer any questions I may have about the program.

Has this happened to anyone? I have to admit I'm a bit surprised receiving this being that I haven't been asked to interview, and the decision date is this Friday.

I received an email like that a couple of weeks ago. I actually sent an email back to the student right away asking what times would be best for his schedule to chat and he never emailed me back. It was kinda strange.

I still haven't been invited to interview yet either.

Hey -
I think I read on last year's thread about a similar situation where the folks were waitlisted and/or invited to interview w R2 applicants...
Do you mind sharing your profile....

Funny enough, I got the exact same email last week and had absolutely no response.
