IN! Live on west coast. Got the call around 7pm PST.

Anyone who has heard receive a scholarship? She didn't mentioned anything on the phone so I assume nothing. Will be my first acceptance to not offer any.

I've read that you have to apply to Haas scholarships separately, after you're admitted. Public school also so not as much $ available to offer. Congrats on getting in!

I hate to say that but most likely the calls for international applicants are over...I just don't get the whole point of the interview, I didn't get the call although I'm sure the feedback from the interviewer was pretty positive...

To those who received acceptance. Congratulations!

I am still patiently waiting for a response. Out of curiosity, I interviewed March 9th. Did any applicants who received acceptance interview around then? Trying to see if they're dishing out acceptances based on interview date to calm my nerves.

I interviewed on March 17th. I don't think you need to worry about the interview date. Got my call on Monday, based in Germany.

Good luck to you!

Dear all: I scored 700 on the GMAT (43Q/42V) and since I was not invited to interview, obviously I will be either waitlisted or dinged. :-(

In order to show them I can handle Quant subjects on the MBA Program, do u guys think I should retake the test or enroll online Math classes such as MBA Math ?

I'm a 30 years old Brazilian lawyer with a 7-year work experience:
3 years working as a lawyer; and
4 years working both as a CEO and as a Board Member.

Tks.

I was almost in the same shoes. I got a 710 Q44 V42 and applied with that, and I too was not invited to interview.

I'm guessing as a lawyer you did not have many quantitative subjects at university? I did have some, but my undergrad scores were not amazing. Good scores in quantitative subjects can mitigate a so-so GMAT quant, but I don't know if you had any.

As for me, I did both, I retook the test and signed up for MBA Math, and I wrote in my application that I would do so. This doesn't appear to have helped, unfortunately. After all, the quant side of things is only one element to your application, so even if you had a great GMAT you may be turned down for another reason entirely. I also sent them my updated GMAT score (750 Q49 V44) but they said they would not consider it unless I wanted to move my application to Round 3. I tried to get a feel from them regarding whether they advised me to do so, and they just said that Round 3 is more competitive, which I took as either a subtle hint to not move to Round 3 or just them stating the facts (and those facts were what made me decide to apply in Round 2 in the first place, so I decided that I was going to stick with it in Round 2).

In your shoes, I would definitely try to retake the test, but that depends on whether you have reason to believe you will do better. For example, I had done better on a few mock exams, and I knew I could dedicate some time to intensive study. I switched from textbooks to Magoosh when preparing for my retake, which was a much better fit for me (I seem to learn better visually and verbally, rather than from reading), and focused on time management for quant (particularly that I need to be *ahead* of time earlier in the test, because as the questions get harder it gets harder and harder to keep up). Regardless, what is clear is that if you land on the waitlist they are on the fence about you, and in my mind that means you need to give them something that pushes you to the right side =)

Remember the GMAT is just PART of your application. You have a fairly impressive background which could make up for your quant score. I was offered an interview invitation with scores similar to yours. I come from an engineering background, but my work experience is far less impressive (4 years in R&D at a large consumer goods company). There are many different factors, if I were you, I would fully invest myself in the quality of your essays, and in making sure your resume and application materials are written flawlessly. Haas is about demonstrating the type of person you are, so make sure that shines through.

I think it's the clearest way to show you are capable, but obviously it is a time-consuming option. So it depends on whether you land on the waitlist, whether you have been admitted to any other schools, whether you plan to reapply, what other weaknesses you might have on your application, so forth and so on. Good luck!

I definitely agree with this as well, as I mentioned the other weaknesses need to be addressed if you have any. I remember a guy with an 800 GMAT that was dinged at like every school he applied to except Booth.

As for HaasBass, he/she has the benefit of an engineering background, which I am sure this strongly mitigated any shortcomings on the GMAT quant.
