If they offered you the opportunity to send in another recommendation letter, do it. While chances are, your recommendations were great, there's always a chance that you got a recommendation that wasn't 100% on your side. Might as well water it down a bit with another one that's hopefully stellar.

The LinkedIn and FB page for EWMBA 16 has only 16-17 members. Are those the only admits for R1?
Even if we take a 50% response rate we are looking at max 35 admits, that might be a positive sign. Whatever makes to keep the hope alive for next 6 weeks!!

Just checked. 23 members in the linkedin group, 7 of which are members of the adcom.

The Facebook group is up to 22 members, but at least 2-3 of those are adcom members.

I went for the in-class visit yesterday. The experience was simply amazing! Its hard to put it in words...
After that we got to interact with some current students too. Was a nice experience..
I did meet a few waitlisted folks yesterday... But because of the visitation/interview day, there was a big crowd of prospective students yesterday.
I think they interviewed about 40-60 candidates from outside the bay area...
Don't know how many applications they received for round2.. but by looking at the turnout yesterday, that number seemed a lot bigger than i was imagining...
@calculas, were you there too? did we meet? ;)

A class visit was what sealed the deal for me. Haas seems to be a much different place than a lot of other business schools.

40-60 interviews on a visitation day isn't bad considering that it looks like they've only admitted ~40 people so far. 200 seats are still up for grabs.

Hi! yes, I was there. It was a good experience. Although, I didn't do the visitation part of the program, as I was an R1 candidate, but I was able to do a class visit and the reception ofcourse. Did we meet? good question, you might be able to recognize me - let me IM you.

packet82, looking at the linkedin group or facebook page, can you please check if Haas admitted more out-of-bay-area students in R1?
I know 1 guy who will be flying in from outside bay area who got admitted, apart from you...

There's one person I know of that's living in San Diego, but I haven't looked through all of the introductions all that carefully.
