Does anyone keep "interview and review" status at this stage??? Fingers crossed!!!!!


Same here..but we shouldn't read too much into it...by the way when did you receive your call?


yes, the decision must be already taken.... but I can't help trying to read between lines :S

I received my interview invitation the 26th Feb and took it the 2nd of March... :roll: :roll: :roll:

It really does seem that the "status" on the Haas portal is fairly nebulous. On Friday I emailed them because mine was still saying I needed to send in my transcript, even though FedEx tracking showed that it had arrived several days earlier. They emailed back to say sorry, they did get my transcript and they'd update the status online- almost as if they'd just forgotten to do it. Similar thing happened just prior to getting an interview invite. My status changed to "you will hear at the decision date" for about six hours, and then back to "interview and review".

All I'm saying is: I get the impression there's a process they have for reviewing our apps, and a process for updating our statuses, and the two don't seem to be in any way linked.

Does Haas call each accepted applicant? Am curious about the demographcis break-up, the way someone posted an article on no. of people accepted after interview.


Looking through older threads, I believe Haas does call each accepted applicants. Not sure what you mean by demographics break-up--if you mean what percentage of acceptances Haas calls, I don't think that would be available anywhere and neither is it that relevant.



What I meant by demographics is what is the apparoximate break-up of the class demogrqphics wise (Asia, SA,EU, domestic students etc.) - just to get a sense.

Here's more random musings to chew on as we sweat and fret. I was looking at the number of members in the Haas FT MBA Class facebook groups for the classes of 2017, 2016 and 2015:

2015: 700 members
2016: 522 members
2017: 132 members

Just based on this and their usual yield, it looks like Haas still might be sending out quite a large number of invites from here on out to get close to even 400 members on that 2017 Facebook group. Of course this assumes that Haas adds everyone they can find to the fb group once they are admitted which I think is a reasonable assumption. But bottom line is I think there's still plenty of room! Or least I sure hope so. LET'S DO THIS.

If it follows round 1 patterns, today will be international admits, wednesday will be domestic and tomorrow will be a bit of both.

So, the website implies that everyone will have a decision by March 26th, 2015. Does this mean we will get responses before that date, or up to 23:59 on March 26th ?

EMBA Silicon Valley Immersion: Entrepreneurship Up Close & Personal  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 23 Mar 2015, 16:00
FROM Haas Admissions Blog: EMBA Silicon Valley Immersion: Entrepreneurship Up Close & Personal
Image
Living and working in SoCal, Christine Elfalan, EMBA 15, is familiar with Silicon Beach; she is, after all, Executive Director of Product Management Bouqs, an online flower service based in Venice, California.

Silicon Valley, however, was another story—and one whose mysteries were revealed during  a Fall Immersion Week focused on entrepreneurship that is one of five immersions in the Berkeley MBA for Executives Program.

She shares her impressions in this Q & A:

What was Silicon Valley Immersion Week like?
Part of the time we do case studies in awesome locations like Google and hear from executives you’d never think you’d be able to meet with—like Facebook CIO Tim Campos. Then we visit various startups and have intimate conversations with the founders. It’s just not something many people in this world ever get to experience.

How did classroom time and startup visits work together?
If we had just had the case studies it would be like any other class. If we just had the immersion, visiting the ventures without the doing the cases, we would have been focused on the companies--their products and missions rather than on the entrepreneurial experience itself—and that’s what the week is really about, understanding how you get there if you want to be an entrepreneur. It’s an eye-opener.

How are you already seeing impact from this EMBA immersion in your life?
My background has mostly been with larger corporations, and I recently joined a 20-person startup as Executive Director of Product Management for our site experience. The immersion week really brought to life that at a startup, I’m no longer  just an employee, rather I feel like I have ownership, that this is my company.

"The entrepreneurial experience itself—that’s what the week is really about."

How does that sense of ownership play out at work?
Early on, I was just trying to get things out, completed. That’s still important, but now I’ve started to get my team to focus more on the actual return on our efforts.  

What was the biggest epiphany from Silicon Valley Immersion Week?
I realized that someday I’d really like to be up in the Valley. You really see that the nature of this environment is ingrained in the people there, the startup mentality, the lean mentality. It’s just a very different environment than in L.A.

What was most surprising?
I was happily surprised by the strength of the network. It was mind blowing to me that all these founders, people actually trying to run new companies would take time out to talk with us about our journeys and to tell us about theirs.

How did earlier lessons come into play during the Silicon Valley Immersion?
I really saw how the first two terms were setting us up for this week. From our leadership classes to our to our marketing class to our accounting and finance classes, they were all essential to get the most out of the week.    

Final thoughts?

Just a big thank you to Professor Toby Stuart and our program office for putting in a tremendous amount of time and effort to give us a gift that nobody else could. I wish we could do it again.

If I had to guess, I think he / she got that number from the applicant summary (real time) in the first post of this thread.

Wow, guess I'm the first to post, I'm an international applicant from Brazil.
I've just received a call from Stephanie telling I was in (about 5PM PDT; 9PM in Brazil).
