Has anyone else NOT received this email. Getting nervous.

I received an email from the adcom today that says they are still reviewing applications and there is still hope for an interview invite. It also said that the timing of an interview invite does not correlate to a particular outcome.

Anyone else received the same mail? Also, any interview invites from India/Asia yet?

There have been reports of people getting the invite and not getting the “ready for review” email. I wouldn’t read too much into it!

Hi Sankar769, Thanks for the debrief. I've a similar background as yours and am looking into the Fulltime MBA program at HAAS (far less WE ~45 months). Do you know how well represented the BioTech research background is at HAAS? Also, Did you have an opportunity for questions to the interviewer?

Interviewed in person on Haas campus

Overall the interview was pretty casual and conversational. Started off with the interviewer saying, "this is going to be pretty low key". I wasn't sure if this was meant to throw me off guard, so I just smiled and kept a friendly face.

The interviewer wanted to make sure the time was going to be set for 30 mins, she started a timer and mentioned that she might be checking the timer occasionally.
The initial few questions were all the standard ones:
About yourself/walk me through your resume/introduce yourself?
Why do you want an MBA and what will you gain?
Why Berkeley Haas?

I had been well prepared for these and she felt pretty satisfied with my responses, saying something like- that's a good answer, sounds like you've thought about it a lot, that answer covers all different angles- good work etc.

Some other questions covered:
Any managerial duties and reporting structure?
Now, I work in Biotech research and its a pretty long career path. Usually people don't get managerial duties without PhD and 3-5 years experience especially in an R&D intensive organization like mine. I explained all this and also covered some other leadership responsibilities I have had on projects I worked on, such as training new employees, communication with other departments, managing interns etc. She seemed to get it but didn't exactly say what she thought of it.

What will your boss say about you- Strengths and weakness?
Said the strengths and she said, "I believe all of that". Weaknesses were explained too- seemed satisfied with it.

What will you bring to Haas?
I had been well prepared for this one. Covered some of my personal and professional attributes, some student clubs I wanted to be part of and Professional organizations within Berkeley Entrepreneurship. She said, that answer covers many different things- good work.

Two sort of curveball questions were:
What are some challenges you faced in promoting a diverse work environment?
My company is really diverse, we have a world map with flags on countries where people are from and it literally covers the world. I explained this and said I have not really had much issues with having diversity and explained what I would do if it were an issue. She was satisfied at the answer and said she wanted to ask because she has talked to some Indian Tech people who only have other Indian males in their teams. I explained that I work in BIO-Tech and that it is a little different for me.

Looking back in your life, is there anything you would do differently?
Now I wasn't well prepared for this one. I thought about it for a second and talked about some occasions in my old company where I had disagreements that could have been handled much better and that I am more mature and understanding now. She followed up and asked whether it affected my professional relationships at work and I explained that it wasn't the case, but that there were just few instances of disagreements that could have been dealt with in a more subtle manner.

I was given a chance to ask questions, there was only about 4-5 mins left. I asked a practical question about scholarships and cohort preference and something about possible cross functional classes or projects with other departments at Berkeley.

Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the interview and her response to my answers. There were a couple of questions where I could have done better but summary being it felt pretty good.

But now I have been placed on the Wait list, so I am not sure if there were any weak answers that I didn't recognize. Will see what happens Fingers X.

Hi dadom,

Are you a R1 applicant? I have a research background too in the pharma industry and applied to Haas in Round 2.

No, I applied in Round 2 - I had a document missing so my application was not complete till about 5-7 days after the deadline. However the portal says that my application will be reviewed in Round 2.

When did you receive an invite to interview? How much time did you have to prepare?

Nope, not a word.... judging by R1 and last year’s cycle, looks like Haas starts calling people around 3 days before the deadline (3/14)
