Does Haas call every selected candidate ?
Since I am an international applicant, is this dingville already or can I live to die another day ??

Evening & Weekend vs. Executive MBA Programs: How to Choose, Part II  [#permalink]

FROM Haas Admissions Blog: Evening & Weekend vs. Executive MBA Programs: How to Choose, Part II
There’s more than one path to an MBA, and for many people, a full-time program just isn’t in the cards. Perhaps you’ve already launched your career, or have started a family.

That’s why we offer two part-time MBA programs. The Evening & Weekend program is designed to be a three-year, six-semester program;our executives program meets every three weeks from Thursday through Saturday over the course of 19 months.

Both programs offer the same rich resources and result in the same Berkeley degree. But which program is right for you? In this two-part series (See Part I), we spoke with two couples in which each partner chose a different part-time program.

Image
Tatiana Medvedeva and Sergey Averchenkov live in Mountain View and are engaged to be married. Both are Russian – she’s from St. Petersberg, he’s from Moscow – but they met in the U.S. in 2011. Sergey will receive his degree from the evening and weekend program in 2017, while Tatiana will graduate from the executive program in December 2015.

Why did you both decide to get your degrees at the same time?

She said:  We were both at a place in our careers where going to business school just made sense. The timing for both of us was good, before we decide to have children.

What are you each doing professionally besides studying at Berkeley?

He said:  I’m Vice President of the Engineering Department at Gbox, a small start-up in Redwood City. We’re just coming out of stealth mode, trying to create a business engine for creative people to monetize on movie-making capabilities.

She said:  I’m a Director of Product Management for Intermedia, a company that provides cloud services for small and medium-sized businesses.

How did you decide between the Executive MBA and the Evening & Weekend MBA programs?Image


He said: I chose the evening and weekend program because I wanted to have more time to pursue extracurricular activities and the schedule is less intense than that of the executive program. Ultimately, I want to build my own start-up – I’m now working on creating my own business plan and model.

She said: I felt like 19 months was a better timeline for me. Within the class demographic, I knew I would be among peers with very similar experiences to mine. I also had more flexibility around my work schedule than Sergey, so I could take a couple of days off every few weeks.

What are the challenges of being a “two MBA” household?

She said:  Time is definitely the main issue. It’s a challenge that we have different class schedules – when I have a break, he’s busy with his homework. It’s difficult to coordinate our down-time.

He said: We do like to fantasize what will happen once we have our free time back! We’re making this significant investment to advance in our careers. So a frequent topic of discussion is: What’s next? How are we going to achieve our goals?

What are the advantages?

He said: We’re definitely benefiting from exposure to the networks of both programs. The connections and people have been just unbelievable. We’ve made more friends in the past six months than in the past ten years. And the professors in both programs have been phenomenal.

She said: You can’t go wrong when you’re ranked among the top ten U.S. business schools. We’ve really been enjoying the classroom atmosphere. And Haas was a great fit in terms of the culture. It’s very open – everyone is so generous with sharing their experience, information, and collaborative studying. You don’t always find that in other business schools. It’s one of the main reasons we chose Haas.

Nothing yet. Staring at my phone and willing it to ring hasn't worked for me.

I did that yesterday and it didn't work for me either. Someone else got a call at the same time though so I think I just misdirected my will power. I will try again today.

Well done!! Maybe my prediction about late interviews was right ;)

Still waiting and hoping for a call of my own...

This may be nothing, but I'm west coast and got a call from an unknown number around 5 PST. The call cut off as I answered in my office, which has horrible reception. Calls from unknown numbers are highly unusual for me(like 0 in the past month), so given the timing, I suspect it may be Stephanie and she decided to call back later instead of leaving a message since it's still early. Will update here if it happens.

The call I received was also from an unknown number, and there was some weird static connection at the beginning that took a second or two before we could hear each other. Seems consistent with what you're describing.

From everything I've heard, it's extremely unlikely to be admitted at this point. The best you should hope for is making the waitlist.

It may not be her. I didn't receive any call last night. I did receive another call this morning around 6:50 AM that I missed again, but it seems unlikely she'd call so early and also not leave a message again if she couldn't reach me. Lol, it probably is the DNC trying to get money - with awful timing as usual.
