Guys, I have a strong hunch that one of my recommender did not give me a good recommendation. Is there any way in which I can neutralize the poor recommendation? I can submit one more recommendation as a waitlisted candidate, but I would like to submit more than 1. Has anybody done that in the past?


I don't think you can send in more than 1 official recommendation though I was able to convince my manager to send an email to the Admissions office stating how my job function etc had changed while I was on the WL. I think they are pretty open to receiving additional emails/letters and will add it to your file.


Thanks for your input 2timesACharm

I was interviewed on 4th of Feb for round 2. Any idea how long do they take for a decision ? All this wait is making me anxious.

you won't know their decision until the decision date comes.
But being called by a current student may be a good sign, according to last year's posts.

ronreapp : Is this call from one current student different than the interview call ? How does one get such a call ?

If you want to know more you need to refer to last year's posts.
Based on my memory, the call should be from a current student other than the interviewer.
It is a cold call.

You can ask packet82. He should know this well.

Hello everyone :)
I am new to the forum, I applied for R2 on the day before R2 deadline. Was invited to interview on 22nd January and I was interviewed on 3rd Feb. I haven't heard back from school since then and there hasn't been any change in the online application or the Maths requirement. Wait is killing me. 1 and half month more to go. Cheers !!

No not at all. :) I have mixed feelings about my Haas interview. I barely made it on time so got kind of nervous by the time interview started. It wasn't really a casual talk (which i expected) but also wasn't like a job interview. Interviewer right away asked me 3 or 4 questions without a pause and i kind of had to answer all in the same sequence. Interviewer was mostly interested in getting to know the real me and why would i want to do an MBA. There were some specific questions about my resume.

After interview, I felt as if i skipped over couple details which I wanted to explain during my interview but i think like any interview, you cannot be 100% prepared. By end of the interview, interviewer had to make a hard stop as we overshot the 30 minutes time. She was very professional, nice and made me feel comfortable during the interview and the escorted me out of the building.

From my experience, they just want to know you and how you can be an asset to the school and classmates.

From what I heard from some friends who got in last year, there isn't any such correlation. Getting admitted and Math requirement status updated can be treated as two parallel events. You will definitely need to prove your quant abilities but it is possible that you will be considered for admission and your math requirement will be updated a bit later during the process but definitely before the decision deadline.

Thanks for the details . I know it is an anxious time for you, because I am in the same boat.

Part-time MBA ROI: A Career Change to Management Consulting [#permalink]

New post 18 Feb 2015, 12:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Part-time MBA ROI: A Career Change to Management Consulting
Image
When Desirae Early, MBA 15, looked at part-time MBA programs, the extensive career resources in theEvening & Weekend MBA Programwere an important factor in her decision to enroll at Berkeley-Haas.

She had no idea how important they would prove to be to her MBA ROI. She went from career switcher to entrepreneur back to making a career change—ultimately landing a position with McKinsey & Company. 

It’s not that work as a sustainability specialist at Levi Strauss & Co. wasn’t satisfying,but she was curious about what else was out there. Success in a business plan competition with a full-time MBA student prompted the duo to see if they could launch their own enterprise. While she enjoyed that, it wasn’t quite right either.

The more this evening and weekend MBA student talked with the Career Management Group (CMG), the more career panels she attended, the more she felt drawn to management consulting.

Her decision made, Desirae jumped into the arduous task of preparing for on-campus recruiting. “I didn’t even know what a case interview was,” she recalls.

It didn’t take her long to learn. CMG’s Jeanne Lew and members of the Haas Consulting Club put her through her paces. “A group of my classmates organized ourselves to practice case studies,” she said. “Classmates and recent grads who work in the field were so generous with their insights and advice.”

The topper may have been Desirae’s experience in Social Sector Solutions, a class in which student teams consult with a nonprofit on a specific issue. Co-led by a former McKinsey director, each team is advised by a McKinsey consultant.

Desirae calls it a “rich experience all the way around. It felt good to help, and I got to test-drive consulting and come away with a portfolio example to show potential employers.”

Potential soon became actual. In Fall 2015, Desirae starts as an associate in McKinsey’s Atlanta, Georgia office. “When career doors started opening up, I decided why not try a new city, too? That makes me one more member of the Haas Alumni Network in Atlanta.”

Last year 42 percent of grads from our Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program advanced in their careers, and 42  percent successfully made career changes. We invite you to explore these more reasons to choose Berkeley-Haas.

A few questions:

1) Once accepted should I expect an admission packet in the mail or is it all done online?
2) When should one expect to get verified by Kroll?

Thanks!

Nope. Nothing since the interview. It just says "file under review". I think we won't know anything until the decision date. I have heard and read in past forums that if a current students contacts you(cold call), it is a good sign.

Many Happy Returns: Long-Term ROI on the Berkeley MBA, Part I [#permalink]

New post 26 Feb 2015, 17:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Many Happy Returns: Long-Term ROI on the Berkeley MBA, Part I
Against the backdrop of frequent stories about the financial return-on-investment of b-school, we wondered about other benefits of the degree that contribute to professional success and personal satisfaction. In this three-part series, we asked several Berkeley-Haas alums for a different kind of MBA ROI—how their Berkeley-Haas studies and degrees have affected their lives in the longer term.

Image
Name and degree:
Beau Giannini, class of 1994

Lives in: Tiburon, CA

Works in: San Francisco, CA

Position prior to Haas and position today: “Before coming to Haas to study in the Evening & Weekend MBA Program, I was running my own print and promotional products company. Since getting my degree, I’ve done a ton of different things. Right now I’m a capstone professor of entrepreneurship and startups in the MBA program at Presidio Graduate School. I’m also a fifth-year PhD candidate in economics and management technology at a Tongji University in Shanghai."

"And for fun, I started an organic snack food company.”

How his MBA has improved his career: “I was a Chinese major from Dartmouth with some experience in international markets. My business degree gave me the confidence to go out and really work globally, knowing that I have this incredible institution and a very strong network behind me. It opened a lot of doors, largely because of the strength of the Haas brand.”

Most rewarding aspects of life today: “Learning from top professors at one of the world’s leading universities has given me the confidence to think more creatively, to take risks, and compete. I’ve been able to travel around China and when I meet with other Haas alums, there’s an immediate comfort level. The school attracts a very progressive, internationally minded student.”

Other ways in which his Berkeley degree has impacted his life: “My wife also holds a Berkeley MBA, so we share that special experience. And I now have a son at Berkeley as well, so Cal is definitely running through our veins. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Berkeley community, and specifically Haas. The core principles and that rich community have really added value to my career and my life by allowing me the freedom to dream up and launch innovative business ideas.”

Do you want more freedom to dream up and launch innovative business ideas?
