One of those diversity programs that is sponsored by the school in order to give minority applicants an opportunity to sit in on classes, meet adcoms, professors and students, etc. It normally requires an application and essays in order to be considered.

Not me...I think they let everyone know on November 9th. I applied November 2 in the middle of the afternoon, so something tells me I have a very slim chance at getting in..apparently they review applications in the order that they recieve them, so the sooner the better.

that's pretty hardcore. You have to fill out an application AND write an essay to get into a prospectives weekend??? Haas just lets you go if you want to go.

Just make sure y'all applying to Haas don't miss their minority diversity workshop weekend coming up very soon (this weekend or next, I believe). No applications necessary!
