I felt really good after mine. The conversation was fluid, we joked and had a good dialog etc. but looking back I feel I could have highlighted my experience in certain areas such as leadership even more. I just felt I shouldn't repeat stuff which was already in the application and resume so stayed away from it.


It went pretty well (obviously). I had to do it via skype since I had to travel that week to LA for work and couldn't get back to SF in time. As with everyone, I over-analyzed my answers to a couple questions, but it was pretty lighthearted.

Guys any suggestions for courses/colleges to fulfill the statistics pre-req?

In the chat session it was mentioned that Data decisions workshop will be advertised by Feb end, but Haas hasn't sent out any information about it.

Should taking a community college course suffice since it is way cheaper?

I remember bumping on a webpage in which Haas documented the list of approved Statistics courses around the bay area. I am not able to find it now.

Although I am not a big fan of online classes, Berkeley extension has an online course priced at about $800.

Whatever you do, do not take the Berkeley Extension course.

I paid the $800 for it and it was a gigantic waste of money. The entire course consists of making you buy a $100 textbook and assigning pages to read. There is absolutely no instruction, no feedback, nothing.

If you do live in the bay area, I heard that "Foothill College" is pretty good.. A friend of mine who graduated from Haas a while ago did his Statistics pre-req there.

Hey guys,

I interviewed last Friday on campus. I thought it went really well. No surprises. All the basic questions that others have posted on here before were what I got asked and I felt well prepared.

Now it's just a waiting game. :)

My interview lasted less than 30 mins and felt I was rushing. In retrospect, it sounded rehearsed and could not convey why me or why haas well. I felt awful after the interview :cry:

Did anybody else feel the same way?
Just 4 more weeks before the D date..

I felt great after the interview but looking back now I feel like I did not make all the points I could about my profile. I definitely feel that my interview was fairly spontaneous but I have been second guessing myself on pretty much everything I said. Bottom line...what is done is done. I am sure you did well. Just keep your spirits up and it will work out :).

Since I kind of knew what questions to expect and was prepared for all those gotcha questions as well, there was no room for spontaneity. That is bugging me now. I wish I had not prepared so much for the interview :(

It is a done deal now..

My status says that I "should log back in closer to the decision date to check my status." Would have been nice if it said "We will call you once we get close to the decision date", but am guessing they don't say that for anyone. :-).

Good Luck!


Unfortunately, the only calls they do is one to notify those that have been admitted.

The status literally doesn't matter though. All you'll learn is what prereqs you'll need. If you haven't taken a stats course in the last 5 years, you'll either need to take a course or the waiver test. If you got a 48 or higher on the gmat math section, they won't make you take the math test.

I attended the visitation day this past weekend as well and I could have even met some of you, although, your backgrounds don't sound too familiar as to those I spoke with.

I felt great after my interview as well, and started even thinking I nailed it. But after I thought about it, I realized there were some things I wished I had mentioned. And now I'm second guessing myself so much, I'm wondering if that's how they want you to feel after the interview and that I really didn't nail it at all. Only thing left to do now is wait and second guess I suppose!

But it was a good time overall, met some great people and got to see the campus, which was really nice, aside from the construction at the bschool.
Good luck to all!

Everyone goes through the same self doubt. As long as you got the motivation questions right and gave a coherent overview of your career path, you'll be fine.

Also, the construction is supposed to be finished in April. So, none of us will have to deal with it this fall.

Hi all,
I am new to this thread.
Congrats to all who made it to the EWMBA program and good luck to all aspirants.
My profile is Male/Semiconductors/700/7yrs/R3.
I am preparing the essays and have the following questions

First - Are there only three essays this year? (2 short essays and 1 main essay)
Second - For essay no. 2
2. a. What are your short term (3 to 5 years) and long term (10 + years) career goals?
b. How have your professional and personal experiences prepared you to achieve these goals?
c. Describe your plan to meet these goals. (250-500 words)
Does it mean that each part has to be 250-500 words ?

Same here, I did the visitation day and it was a fantastic experience....even the 3 hour accounting class was so much fun. Imagining myself sitting in the room but the second guessing about my interview response is killing me. I need to find some other distractions.

There were 2 batches on saturday as far as i know. One batch had interviews in the morning & the other batch had class visit. They just swapped in the after noon session.

Morning class was "Game Theory". It was a lot of fun.
