Any reason why most of the threads have spelled 'applicants' as applicnts?

Doesn't go well with the reputation of gmatclub if it is unintentional.

I'm guessing it is because there is a character limit for the Topic Name. Most are probably a couple characters too long, hence the removal of certain letters.

Hi Neo,

It's because of character limit. We can only put 60 characters in the title of thread. This limitation often force us to omit few characters to make room for other important details. i.e. Class & Intake year, university location, etc. (Update {Sept 4, 2014} :- Thanks to Neo for bringing this issue in the limelight. We have now increased character limit for topic title up to 70 characters.)

I have now removed the word 'all' from the title to make space for 'applicants'.

Anyway..... Good luck to all Haas applicants. Feel free to share your strategies/thoughts/interview & school visit experience with fellow applicants in this thread.

Regards,
Narenn

Hello Guys,

We recently got an opportunity to talk to Current Haas EWMBA student and Prominent GMATClub member - Packet82 - and get his insights on Haas MBA programs. Here are the excerpts from the discussion.

GPA, GMAT, Application Essays, Interview, Work Experience, and Extra Curricular. If you asked to arrange these parameters in the order of their importance at Haas– what would it be?

Packet82:- (1) Work Experience (2) Interview and Essays (3) GPA and GMAT
Extra Curricular is a bit of a wild card. It really depends on the specific applicant.

What advantage, if any, is there in applying in a specific round over another?

Packet82:- If you come from a common background, it's better to apply in round 1. However, Haas tends to admit most of the EWMBA class in round 2 and will waitlist the bulk of the R1 applicants until R2 is done. So, if you have a strong background and have a lot of competition, it's probably better to do earlier. Past that though, it doesn't really matter. Just try to get it in by R2. R3 & 4 tend to be much more competitive as most of the spots have been filled.

Are the on-campus and off-campus interviews treated equally or there is any preference to one over other?

Packet82:- Haas officially only does on campus unless there's an extenuating circumstance. I ended up doing mine via skype and got in anyways. If you can, make the trek down to Haas for the interview.

Do you recommend a school visit? Is it a must?

Packet82:- Not a must, but I'd highly recommend it. Haas is a very different place from other b-schools I've visited. Admissions really only wants to admit people that fit in to the mold of the type of leader Haas is trying to educate. So, visit the school and get a feel for it ahead of time. See if it's a good fit for you.

How important is the school visit for an applicant?? Does that really play any role in strengthening application?

Packet82:- It makes for some added color. No one is going to record that someone came in for a class visit or not, but it can definitely help you with ideas for your essays.

Can you comment on the Employment process of the school? What support do students get from Career Services dept, peers, and alumni? Which companies (and from which sectors) generally recruit in the school? How strong school’s alumni network is?

Packet82:- In the Bay Area, it's mostly tech companies and a lot of startups. All the other usual suspects that show up to other top 10 programs also show up to Haas.

Which student clubs or groups are in the school? What social and philanthropic opportunities and opportunities to get involved in leadership roles one can get in these groups?

Packet82:- The full list of clubs is available here: https://haas.campusgroups.com/club_signup

Is there anything related to Financial Aid worth a mention?

Packet82:- For part time students, there isn't much in the way of financial aid other than loans. There are a few token need based scholarships (I don't know anyone that has received this), and one small grant for people living outside of the bay area, but that's about it. Many people have some sort of sponsorship from their company though.

Can you think of a few good and bad reasons for applicants to reach out to current students? Eps. Before submitting an application?

Packet82:- If you want to find out some more information about what it's like to attend the school, great. Don't ask current students information that can easily be found on the website or things like what specific books they used for classes.

Has anyone seen what the recommendation letter question prompts are for Haas? If they are different from the other schools I am applying to I might use different people to reduce the burden.

Hello all! We recently interviewed Stephanie Fujii, the newly-appointed assistant dean of the full-time MBA program and admissions at Haas. In her interview, she discusses the ways that Haas has made innovation a focus in their MBA curriculum. She also provides advice on how to approach Haas' application essays. If you're applying to Haas this year, her advice could really help you out! Read it here.

about ready to submit! is anyone else having this problem? checking through the printed version of my app and see this question: "Authorize use of your application materials for consideration of any awards and scholarships for which the Haas School believes you may be eligible" and it says I selected "No", but I can't find the question anywhere on my application and want to select yes. am i the only one having this issue?

EDIT: I called and they said they are aware of the problem. apparently question came over from last year, but everyone will be considered
