Has anyone gotten an invitation from California, and if so, what part of California?

Hey everyone, debating Haas for R2 and saw this when I signed up for the half day visit:

Drop-in Advising Sessions:
You may connect with an admissions advisor for a brief non-evaluative session. Drop-in advising is available 2:00PM to 4:00PM Monday through Thursday. Check in at the front desk in the MBA Admission Office reception area in room S430 for availability.

Has anyone done it? What kind of stuff are they willing to cover? I'd have to switch my visit reservation to do this so any insight would be appreciated :)

Got an interview!!! Received the email last night. I clicked the link in the email to select off-campus (NYC). They immediately sent me the information for the local alum that I have been paired with. I emailed him with my schedule and he responded within an hour. Now to prep for my Oct 20th interview! So so excited!

Does anyone know if Haas issues acceptances before the Jan. 15th notification date? Or do they wait and notify everyone on that day?

Looking at last year's thread the earliest acceptances came out was a few days before the notification date. Since this time the 15th is a Thursday, I would guess the earliest you would get an acceptance would be Monday the 12th.

I heard Haas has a specific date each round where they bring to campus all of the local applicants who received an interview. Apparently on this day, second years lead a mass "interviewing day". Is there any indication that your interview is scheduled on this day?

Edit: I'm referring to "Super Saturday"

Edit #2: Per http://www.mbaprepadvantage.com/blog/ha ... vitations/ it sounds like "super saturday" is held during round 2 and is typically for those residing outside of the SF Bay Area. I guess I had it backwards.

I had an option to select on or off campus, and then several dates/times to choose from.

Awesome, thanks for the info and congrats on the invitation! I have a feeling I'm heading towards the waitlist - it makes sense that Haas leverages the waitlist heavily given their small class size. At 250, they have to be careful not to have too many outstanding offers at any given time, or they could easily end up with a class size of 300+.

I Interviewed on Monday. It was pretty straightforward. He asked me to walk him through my resume first. Then what my goal was. Then why Berkeley. Lots of small talk in between, felt more like a conversation than an interview. It was over in 25 minutes haha. He finished saying "call me when you get accepted so the alumni chapter here can celebrate with you".
