Re: Calling all Haas MBA Applicants: 2021 Intake (Class of 2023) [#permalink]
I think you are mistaking FT and PT application threads. I can still answer your questions from the FT prospective though. PT program is actually bigger than the FT and networking between two programs is not too bad. I know EWMBA MBAA and FT MBAA are working to get more networking and joint events. We share evening and some of the of the weekend electives and all of Haas events (club or schools organized) are open to EWMBA. Not sure what the Fall semester will look like with this COVID situation, but once we go in-person it will be fun!

As for switching jobs, I can tell you that it is pretty easy in the FT program and I cannot tell much beyond that. As long as you know the target company well and worked on your resume with peer advisers, then it shouldn't be that big of a problem. The brand will get you into the door then it is up to you. I would reach out to EWMBA career advisers or peer advisers (your fellow EWMBA 2nd and 3rd years) and ask them this question.

Thank you!! Haas 23' Candidate here. I'm curious your sense of how many of peers in your class have gotten new jobs, promotions and/or changed industries since you started in the MBA program (specifically interested in anecdotes of those who transitioned into tech)?

How is networking with full-timers and how close-knit is the PT program? I know the FT program is as big as the PT program and you would know close if not all your classmates with the small class. Any personal experience you can share there?

Thanks!

Did any of you attend any online webinars from Haas? I wonder how the deferrals are going to impact the 2021 intake. Any thoughts?

Deferrals will definitely impact 2021 intake for all schools. This year we can expect a challenging admissions cycle.

I think it would be best to apply to more number of schools and to a wide range of programs to increase the odds.

Dear Experts,

I have recently taken my GMAT & managed to score a 760 (Q50,V42). However, I screwed up on IR & ended up scoring a 2. Do you think this IR score can become a point of rejection during my Haas MBA application, assuming that the rest of my profile has no red flags?

If yes, are there some strategies I can take to reduce the impact of the IR score? I am not really keen on taking the GMAT again just to move up the IR score.

Does anyone know if we can apply at Haas with the Online GMAT score? On this link it says AWA is needed: https://mba.haas.berkeley.edu/admissions/gmat-and-gre but the online version doesnt have that section. Would appreciate if someone can confirm.

Hi everyone! And thanks for the warm welcome :)

Haas is definitely one of my target schools. Love their 4 guiding principles: Question the Status Quo, Confidence Without Attitude, Students Always, and Beyond Yourself.
