Is it just me or does Haas seem to be rolling out interview invitation more slowly than other schools? Does Haas admit a high percentage of those interviewed? That could account for relatively low number getting invites.

I don't know but it's killing me. With 2 dings in round 1 already, personal morale is getting pretty low.

Haas is 50/50 historically with an interview and is naturally going to have fewer invites due to the really small class size so the limited activity does make sense.

Yeah I can see that. Does anyone who has interviewed know if your online application status changes in any way? Mine still says I'll be notified at the decision deadline. I keep checking it in case I miss an interview email, but I'm not sure an invitation to interview is reflected on the application status.

The application status changes to "Interview and Review" once you receive an invite.

Since the ewmba thread isn't getting many looks, wondering if this thread can help shed some light on this. How hard is the 250 word count limit? From that 2013 chat transcript, it seems as though they do allow some overage within reason. However, how can you tell what's "reasonable"? 20-30 words over? 40?

250 is fairly short, so just wondering if it's an automatic DQ if you're 40 words over or something.

No.. it's not an automatic DQ. Infact if you are 40 words off as per MS word, the count will be even larger in the Haas system. It takes apostrophee and hyphenated words as two separate words.

Yeah! That was a bummer, I had to edit my essays to fit in that word count.

I have to say Haas has one of the most outdated application system among all the schools I applied. One link for each section, text fields for extra curricular, misaligned boxes, and weird application proof page...

They should upgrade their app system or just have those standardize ones like other schools...

Berkeley MBA Studies Help Military Servicemembers Take Flight [#permalink]

FROM Haas Admissions Blog: Berkeley MBA Studies Help Military Servicemembers Take Flight
Teamwork and leadership skills become second nature when you serve in the military. How to use a spreadsheet or a financial model . . . not so much. That’s why Kelly Deutermann and Mike Christman—who happened to meet first in flight school—consider it a good career transition point.

Here’s what these Berkeley MBA students had to say about why they chose business school, where their careers are headed, and why they recommend it to other vets.

 Kelly Deutermann

Image

Her military career:
Kelly remains an active duty member of the U.S. Coast Guard as a maritime search and rescue pilot. Before starting her studies, she was posted in Humboldt Bay, California and earlier in Miami, Florida. In both postings her duties also encompassed law enforcement, notably drug smuggling and migration.

 Her decision to go to Haas: “When I was researching programs, I got the strong impression that, as an institution, Haas really knows who it is, what it values, and how it wants to serve the community.  The school’s sense of self meshed beautifully with mine.”

 Her future: “The Coast Guard is sponsoring my studies, so I’ll continue in the service. My next posting will be in a new arena, one that takes advantage of my new skills in financial analysis. I’ll be in Washington, DC, helping to craft the Coast Guard’s budget. Knowing what comes next gives me even more freedom to explore the opportunities business school offers without the pressure of looking for a job.”

She recommends business school to other vets because: “I’ve seen too many senior officers leave the military only to feel lost in the civilian world. I think of business school as a professional incubator. It gives you two years to explore your options and try new things while you’re learning a whole new skill set. This is a no-threat environment to test your wings.”

 Mike Christman

Image

His military career:
During his nine years in the US Marine Corps, Mike flew more than 300 combat hours as an attack helicopter pilot in Afghanistan. He also organized and led the grassroots “Combat iPad” effort to bring that technology into the cockpit.

His decision to go to Haas: “I was struck by how closely aligned the Haas Defining Principlesare to the values that guide the military services. The idea that the school and its students are here to serve others resonated with me. Berkeley-Haas attracts the kind of people who wants to do things bigger than themselves. Plus, the vets’ community here is super tight.”

 His future: “My academic background is in engineering. The technical problems we faced in the Combat iPad project were easy compared to getting people organized. During my internship at Apple last summer, I learned that herding cats is the essence of product management. I don’t know yet where I’ll end up, but it’s likely to be something more related to motivating people than analyzing data.”

 He recommends an MBA to other vets because: The full-time MBA program gives you two years to try things and make mistakes without consequences. You learn a whole new language of business—one that doesn’t include the f-word as much as you’re used to. The skills and knowledge you gain will set you apart from other returning veterans, and you leave with an entirely new network to rely on.”

Just checked my Berkeley account to find that my status has changed to "Interview and Review". I suggest checking your account for the same.
