Hi everyone, received what seems to be a bulk email titled 'Additional application updates' at around 1:23 am IST today.

It basically reiterates that the Admissions Committee is still reviewing applications. Perhaps the most important takeaway is that

"Don't be discouraged if you haven't received an interview. Interview invites can be sent at any point up until the decision date. Remember, the timing of your interview does not correlate to a particular outcome."

So for applicants from those regions where we've not seen/heard about any invitation activity, this should be something worthwhile to cling on to as we prepare for another week of waiting for an invite! :)

Hi, has anyone registered for the Video Interview for Haas. Does anyone have any information about the same? There are no slots available in any city in India and I am freaking out!

Hey guys,

As a few others mentioned above, I checked my portal earlier today only and was surprised to find my interview invite just sitting there. No e-mail received at all.

Extra info: Applied on the R1 deadline (26-sept), received the "Your Application Is Complete" e-mail on the 18-oct. Based in Latin America for those wondering about geographical roll-out.

Don't lose hope! Good luck to those who are still waiting for invites!

Hi everyone! Is there anyone here who's interviewed via the video interview format? It would be really helpful to understand the details of the experience.

I received an interview invitation today. I found out through the portal - I didn't receive an email about the interview, or an email confirming my application was ready for review. Also one of the recommendations was submitted after the deadline, if anyone is wondering about that.

I am located in South America.

All three of the Haas MBA programs are now STEM certified, one of the first schools to achieve this feat! More details in this article: https://newsroom.haas.berkeley.edu/berk ... -programs/

Hello everyone,

Just wondering - has Haas been sending out an uncharacteristically small number of interview invites this year? I know we're not at the decision deadline yet, but we are nearing it. Compared to the last 2 years' DecisionTracker reports (~65 interview invites for Round 1), this year reported only around ~25 invites for Round 1. Similarly, this year I counted only around ~35 invites on Livewire.

Of course, I'm aware that not everyone reports their statistics.

Thank you - would like to see what others think!

HI Axum, it is difficult to comment at this point on the interview invite trend for this year, without any official report. Interview invites have rolled out last week as well (I received mine on the 14th) and as per the AdCom, there's time until end of November to complete the interviews. So, I believe that invites might roll in for another week.

Regarding the decision tracker updates, a lot of people tend to update their status once they've received a final decision (admitted people tend to share and dinged ones don't really want to), so I think that there might be a certain discrepancy in comparing previous years' invites with this year so far.

These are my two cents, wish you best of luck and hope you get some good news soon! :)

Just saw this in the news. Haas MBA programs are now STEM-designated! All programs including PT and FT.

https://newsroom.haas.berkeley.edu/berk ... -programs/

Or is this old news?
STEM means increased competition from International Students since STEM allows for a 3-year work permit after graduation (with a few strings but much fewer and is pretty much guaranteed unlike H1B which requires a review, large payment, and most often is a lottery)

No it’s pretty new news!

International students who complete a predetermined number of credits will get the STEM OPT extension which is a game changer!

Lots of business schools are adopting this strategy in response to recent immigration anxieties!
