Has any R2 applicants gotten an invite yet?

The Haas Admissions Blog (http://theberkeleymba.blogspot.com/) has been taken offline. When it was online, it said that they would start invites at the end of January. I'm hoping the process got delayed rather than no gmatclubbers got invites after 1.5 weeks.

I really hate this waiting game. Every morning I psych myself up for an invitation e-mail, only to be disappointed to find nothing in my inbox :(

Does anyone know what the SS interview for R2 is going to take place?
My comfort in not having received an invite is that no one here has reported an invite yet. And 0/12 R2 gmatclubber for invite is highly unlikely.

I may be jumping the gun a bit, but I'm bored. I looked through all the threads (even the 2008 one), but couldn't find any interview experiences. Would any interviewed candidate like to share his/her interview experiences, questions, etc.? Your information would be much appreciated via Kudos.

kryzak, I think what happened with Haas is that, they admitted 250 students in R1 and all of them decided to matriculate :wink:

haha, well, that would be a record (100% yield) and a big problem for R2-4 people. :P

I'd like to know as well. For me its been radio silence from Haas, Columbia & NYU - so I'm assuming those are dings (If not it would be a nice suprise) :P

For those of you still waiting for invites--don't give up hope! I didn't get my R1 invite until 2.5 weeks before the deadline, so hold tight . . . my guess is we'll see a flurry next week!

If last year's trend holds, all the R2 interview invites should have went out around this Thursday(yesterday)/Friday(today).

http://the-b.org/~kenny/haas/

This year in R1, caligl (accepted) got her invite 1 week before SS. SS for R2 is on March 7. I think we still have hope. I really REALLY doubt that every R2 gmatclubbers would get denied of an interview.

I think what more likely happened is that given the volume increase and the small admissions office, Haas is a bit behind on the reviewing the R2 applicants. From what I hear, Haas review over the application more closely before the interview than most school, that's why the admit date is so close to the SS interview.

So don't give up man. I know this wait sucks, but good luck to everyone.

Yes, those in California seemed to be getting invites one week before the SS event; I seem to remember that when I made that timeline there. I imagine now they're just behind on reviewing applications. After all, it is just one year's worth of "trends" we're looking at.

Applications are also up this year and I don't think they increased the size of the admissions staff, so getting through all those extra apps is likely taking extra time. Don't give up!

Hey all,

Don't panic yet. Yes, Haas does read through the applications with at least TWO (sometimes more) readers before extending an invite, which is why the invites go out later and come at random times. This is definitely a good thing since you know you're in a pretty select group if you get an interview. :)

The volume has gone up, but not as much for R2.

California invites usually go out last because of the ease of arranging travel to get to SS, so don't be surprised if you get an SS interview a week before the day. Also, California applicants can be interviewed on campus, so some invites have gone out AFTER SS. So don't give up hope yet.

What else... Pretty much even if you don't get an interview, it doesn't mean you're dinged. You may get waitlisted and interview after the decision release deadline. I've met quite a few R1 W/L who are interviewing in the past few weeks. I'm guessing many should get off the waitlist after 3/18 (R2 deadline).

Hope that helps!

Look for an email from "mbaadm@haas.berkeley.edu" with the subject "Your Berkeley Full-time MBA Login Account"

Good luck
