Hahaha sorry! I think it went well! I interviewed with a second-year student on campus. I felt like I connected with my interviewer on a few key points (industry and finding meaning in work) so I feel positive about it. No questions that I didn't expect. Here's what I remember:
-Walk me through your resume/tell me about your background
-Goal with MBA
-What specific gaps do I have that I need an MBA to fill (why am I not just making the career transition now)
-Long-term goals
-Example of team-based experience (and were there any conflicts on that team)
-What clubs do I want to participate in on campus
-Which of the Core Values is most important to me and why

I asked her what advice she would give an incoming student, her favorite courses, what surprised her about her experience. I really enjoyed her responses. The Core Values and culture are obviously really important to the school and we talked about them a lot. I felt like she was an excellent ambassador for the program.

I can't say there were any "hard" questions or things that I wasn't prepared to answer. My advice would be to really think about your goals and what makes this school unique and why you identify with their culture in a way that feels authentic to you.

I'm hopeful and it will be a tough month waiting to hear back! Haas is definitely my dream school.

My application went from "received" to "under review" just now. I guess this means they've started Europe.

They say "We will require an official transcript and degree certificate issued by XXX and YYY in the original language with an official English translation, if you are invited to interview.". If we have submitted a scanned copy of the official English translation (certified), I guess this means that also official (printed) transcripts from our educational institutions will be required.

Same for me. Where are you based?

Does anyone know how long it takes for them to come back with a decision once you get the ready to review email?

I got my "Ready for Review" email on October 20 and just got my invite yesterday evening, October 28.


Seems to be about a week. I'm in Eastern Europe.

How do you read their degree/transcript requirement? The application FAQ said we should organize sealed copies from the universities. Is there any way around that (as this might expect some time)?

Well that's disheartening... my status has been at "Under Review" (with the side note "your application is now ready for review") for what feels like an eon. Really liked visiting with the students/teachers and seeing the campus so hard not to be pessimistic at every opportunity.

Hang in there! At the end of the day we really don't know how it works inside the admissions office :) We've still got over a month while they're still sending out invites.

Does anyone get an email from Haas asking for transcript (in both original language and english), degree certificate (in both original language and english)?

I am confused because I remember submitting those files, at least the original versions.

Also, is it an implication that might lead to an interview?

Thank you!

Everyone gets that email. I don't think it implies anything - it's more just to have it prepared from before to increase efficiency.

As for how long it takes, I went back and did some digging (here and Livewire), seems like it can be anywhere from 7 days to a month. The high proportion of invites has been between 7-10 days though.

I'm a US national living in Europe for a few months and I received an interview invitation end of October and interviewed beginning of November. The address on my application was Europe, but my permanent address was US so not sure what pool of applications I was reviewed with.
