Hi, I am an Indian candidate looking to apply to California schools in R2. I have admits from UNC-Kenan Flagler and ISB, but since I want to move to tech industry California would be the best place for me I believe.

Any inputs on Haas acceptance rates for Indians in R2? Is it worth the effort. Also, what is the situation like with scholarships in R2?

Thanks!


In a similar dilemma. Any advice is appreciated.

Also, is giving TOEFL mandatory for Haas, even when the English was the language of instruction in my under-grad ? Is it the only school among (Top-15) that has this requirement ?

If you feel you have a competitive profile for Top 10 US schools, you should go ahead and apply to Haas. Don’t worry about it being R2.

Yes, TOEFL is mandatory irrespective of “undergrad language of instruction”. It’s a policy across University of California b-schools.

I have my interview on 21st December (applied in R1) and was told that I will receive my decision on January 3rd. Not sure what impact this late interview has on my chances....anyone else in the same boat as me?

All admitted students have to separately apply for scholarships :) should be in the admit-only website.

Haas is a super-competitive school, even more than MIT, Wharton, Booth, etc. so its definitely more difficult to crack Haas compared to other similar schools. Also, its essays are interesting but take time. Ultimately it comes down to how well you know Haas.

And yes, TOEFL is an aboslute must for Haas. No waiver.

I also think even IELTS can be taken instead of TOEFL. The issue is I am unable to get a test slot for either of the tests in the coming days. Even if I do get one, there are high chances that the TOEFL score will not be evaluated before the application deadline.

Does the school permit the applicant to write, or submit scores (even unofficial), few days after the application deadline ?

Thanks.

The short answer is "no". This is not a Haas thing but a Univ of California thing and there is no way for Haas to waive this requirement.

Not to discourage you from applying but as johndoe2016 said, Haas is very competitive, especially for Indians. Our analysis of acceptance rates of GMATClub users at various top schools shows that only 1% of Indian applicants got in to Haas in last 5 years.

Anyone have any idea if I'd need to take TOEFL/IELTS even if I'm an American citizen who's been educated at an indian University (medium of instruction english).

Also, my schooling (in india), was done under the British Cambridge system (A levels/GCSE).

I tried mailing the adcoms, but they're closed for the holidays.

Most probably, yes. The country where you obtained your Bachelors seems to be the driving factor in case of Haas, not citizenship or work-ex.

Hi All,

Any idea if we need to send the official TOEFL score to the Haas admissions office? From what I understood it would take more than a week or two, for TOEFL to send the official score to the selected schools and the Round 2 deadline is just round the corner.

Couldn't figure out if self-reporting is sufficient to be considered for review in this round.

Thanks a lot in anticipation!

https://mba.haas.berkeley.edu/admission ... tml#Scores
All exams (GMAT, GRE, TOEFL) must be taken on or before the deadline for the round in which you apply. Please self-report your scores on the application, and request to have your official scores sent to us.

It's OK to use self-reported scores on application and mail the offical score after the deadline as long as you took the test before the deadline. :thumbup:
