1/14/13: invited to super saturday

I'm sure interview invitations for R2 are still going out...

Awesome dude! Can I ask when super saturday is exactly? I'm going to think positive hoping for an interview invite and want to start laying out my *potential* Q1 schedule.

Super Saturday is an on-campus, Admissions-led event consisting of lunch, student life and career panels, a campus tour and, most importantly, the interview

Here's a good read on Super Saturday: http://berkeleymbastudents.wordpress.co ... the-table/

Is it safe to assume that if we are US applicants not form the Bay Area, that we're probably not getting invited to Super Saturday? I would drop all plans and go there if they invited me on 2/1, but logistically I assume they send those out earlier so that people have enough time to book flights, etc...

Here's hoping for an interview in my area!

Super Saturday invites are for US applicants NOT from the Bay Area. I would assume that if you indicated that you visited campus then you might not get a Super Saturday invite. Regardless, it no different than a regular interview on any normal day.

Application question for those of you who already applied to Haas. In the employment section they say to NOT include unpaid work. Does this include stuff like startup/consulting projects where one is not getting paid? Or does this apply to volunteer stuff like community service work, etc.?

I've been doing advisory work with a startup that is completely unpaid (no equity or anything), and I listed that role in the community service/extracurricular activity section for all of the schools I applied to. I don't remember exactly how Haas broke up its app, but since I wasn't getting paid and it wasn't a structured "internship" I didn't feel comfortable listing it as "employment". I'd say definitely put it on your resume and definitely list it as an extracurricular, but leave it out of employment.

Thanks. I decided to put them on my resume. Don't think i'm going to put them in extracurriculars since my resume has the pertinent information and don't feel like double listing them.

Nopes. Whats up with HAAS??? I've not heard a lot of people from R2 invited to interview. Have they already filled up their class in R1? Has any international applicant got an interview invite (whether currently in the US or elsewhere)?

Definitely - still feels weird that it's been over 7 weeks and we haven't heard anything...

I just had a look at last year's thread and they had interview invites going out in February as well. Granted, last year's R2 decision date was about a week later, but it seems we still have about 2-3 weeks left.

I applied Round 2 and just got an interview request email. Seems like these things are going out random and sporadic, so I wouldn't fret if you haven't heard anything yet.

The email told me to log onto the application website and choose between on-campus and off-campus interview. For off-campus, it asked me for a city to interview. (There were lots of choices.) After confirming my city, I received an email with the name of my interviewer and instructions to schedule date/time for the interview.

Hope this helps with planning. Best of luck!

I am a R2 applicant residing in bay area. I just noticed the 'Status description' for my application status has changed today. My application status had changed to "application under review" on the 20th of December and status description read something like " Your application is ready for review......" ( I precisely remember the 'ready for review')

The status however still remains "application under review".

I am concerned about the second sentence. Does this somehow mean I am not chosen for interview?? Do all of you have a similar status description.

Also, if this is the status description prior to getting an invite, does anybody know what the average time is prior to getting invite?

Just received my interview invite, haven't seen other R2 international invites yet so I thought it would be meaningful to the forum to post. I wouldn't panic if you're another international student and haven't been invited yet...I think I'm a bit of an "in between" case because I'm from California but on a temporary work assignment to Israel.

In any case...a bit more on my background:

3 years Big 4 in audit
5.5 years in finance in renewable energy
1.5 years working in Israel
GMAT - Q-45(68%) V-47(99%) 740(94%)
Submitted my application on the due date...can't recall when mine went to "under review"

Congrats to all R1 applicant call-getters! Those who are in waitlist/waiting for a interview Invite R2... all the very best. Hope is something you can hold on to pretty tightly .

R1 applicants - would be really glad if you can post your profile, country and interview questions along with what you loved about the interviewer(culture or something). Might be of a great help to us all.

Happy new year to all of you!

I'm a US applicant working in the financial services industry. GMAT was 750+ with a 3.5+ gpa from a top US public school.

The interview questions were posted earlier in this thread by someone else. They are quite generic in my opinion (why a MBA? Why Haas?) and I believe that the interview is more a fit test than anything. My interviewer was from Europe and was very laid back. He had participated in a startup competition at Haas so it was interesting to talk to him about that since I have entrepreneurial interests. We had a very good dialogue and I came away feeling that we had connected well. Note that they end the interview at 45 minutes sharp on campus.

Congrats dilbert99, hope to see you there in a few months.
I'm from Israel, male, 31, 670, 3.0 GPA, vast work experience, CPA in big4 accounting firm, and plenty of volunteer work which really impressed them as per the acceptance call from the admissions.
I agree with what dilbert99 wrote above. The interview itself was very easygoing in a coffee-shop for about 45 minutes.
It started by him telling me a bit about himself and then asked me the normal questions:
Why MBA?
Why now?
Why Haas?
Career goals?
What would your friends say your character flaws are? (wasn't prepared for this one)
He then gave me a chance to ask him some questions which I had prepared in advance, both the usual (why MBA, why Haas...) and specific questions about his profession (googled him before) and that's it.

hope this helps, good luck
