Guys, anyone willing to share insights on the system word limit? It turns out that the system calculate "out-of-date" as 3 words instead of 1. That way, my essays are slightly over limit in the system. How did you deal with that? Do you cut words or just leave it as it is? Appreciate inputs!

My essays were below the limit, so I cannot give you 100% sure advice, but generally they don't mind if you are a few words over the limit. However, given that Haas uses a textbox for essays instead of uploading files, I'd suggest that you check the preview of your application to make sure it does not cut off the extra words.

Thanks for the input. I think to be safe, I would make cuts to get below the limit. Btw, the preview pdf looks ugly in format... They really should invest \$ on the system.

The Haas admissions committee has explicitly said you can slightly exceed word limits. I wouldn't worry about a net difference of two words.

Yeah... Its been too long, but until now nobody who has received the confirmation email saying that the application is ready for review around Dec 20th has confirmed an invitation to interview.... so PLEASE, if someone has... let us know!! Too much time waiting and no news at all

Does someone know how it was for R2 applicants last year?

Haha, any time! It still feels surreal because I've been waiting for SO LONG to get this invite! I hope they don't "retrieve" my invitation by saying that they made a mistake in the system or something!

Submitted for R3! Took three hours in cutting every essay into exact word limits. Honestly, this is my best and very last application. Good luck to all who sit in in R3!

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

Thanks for the update!

To be honest, I'd think that in fact you were among the earliest to get an invite for R2. There was a facebook or blog post (can't remember) from admissions that said interview invites will start going out in January. Considering they had to make final decisions/update applications/inform applicants for R1 last week, I don't think many interview invites have been sent so far.

Yea, I figured since R1 applicants were hearing back last week... I was getting so anxious (especially with some R2 applicants on this forum who received some sort of interview invites, whether Super Saturday or not, before the holiday closure).

Hope you guys all hear back very soon, too!!!

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.
