This may sound like throwing the towel before the fight but I am having grave doubts about whether I should apply full time to Haas at all. I mean the competition is so intense.

My profile has 1 big negative (age 34) and other parts are ok not so great. EC's are minimal...don't know how much EC's matter to Haas. What matters most to Haas, anyways?

Back to my point, chances are better for the Part Time program, aren't they?

R3 is Jan 30 and I am in 2 minds...!!!

age is not a big negative for Haas. There are quite a few classmates who are over 34 in the class (probably more than many other larger schools). Of course, it's what you've done in your 12 years of WE that matters a lot. ECs are great to show leadership, teamwork, and your involvement with things other than work, but is not necessary. There really is no answer to "what matters most to Haas?", it really is dependent on each candidate.

Part time is less selective based on the numbers, but I don't know enough about that program to make a judgement on if it's "easier" or not.

Good luck with your decision!

Anyone know if Haas calls the admits the day before decisions come out or if they just send out the final notifications via email/online status check? Just need to know if I should hyperventilate the 27th if I don't get a phone call . . . :|

For those of you interested in finance at Haas or PE/VC, this may be useful, from the BW forums (yeah, they actually have some useful things, haha)

no, wasn't him, but it was a member of the adcom. she called my cell phone. i saw it was area code 510 so figured it was berkeley. the first minute though, i kept waiting for a ding and for her to say, "we thought you're great, BUT..." since it took a little while before she actually said i was in. she followed up with an email recapping what we talked about and online resources for admitted students. official letter should be coming via snail mail.

good luck to everyone still waiting!
