Honestly, I am not sure why they make it so difficult. The next few hours is like watching a nice suspense, thriller movie! There are 28 R1 applicants on this forum and we have only 6 admits (<25%) so far. I am guessing there has to be more. So, the only question is: When are they going to start calling today? If they have to update the online status by Noon, they would most likely finish calling by then.

Based on my conversations with AdCom directors at UCLA and Kellogg (pretty similar to Haas), a very very crude estimate for admit distributions might be something like this

15% in R1 40% in R2 40% in R3 5% in R4 (or from all waitlists)

Now if we assume that Haas under admits in R1, then that 15% will fall to may be 10% and the R2 will bump up 45%

Assuming a total of 700 applicant pool, approx 110 must have applied in the R1, approx 11 must have gotten their admits yesterday(?) (6 here) and the wild estimate would be that approx 9-10 might get waitlists today (?), now how many of those will be from this forum is an excellent question

(Feeling jobless today )

Why do you think they admit only 15% in R1? If I had known earlier, I would have probably applied in R2 or R3.

Will the 40% in R2 and 40% in R3 include wait-list from R1? or will All wait-list including R1 be admitted in R4?

So much for the fact that "each round has equal weightage"... now i am contemplating if i should have taken more time and applied in R3... that would have given me a few more months to work on outside office stuff that i am engaged in and then talk about them in my application when they were near completion..

Keep in mind UCLA also has a really early R1. From what they said, they only get 10% of their application pool in R1 and something like 75% between R2 & R3.

There are ~35 students in the FEMBA 2016 facebook page (moderated by AdCom) so they must have admitted 35 in UCLA FEMBA R1. (Just another data point.)

Why do you think they admit only 15% in R1? If I had known earlier, I would have probably applied in R2 or R3.

In R2 and R3 you'd be competing against way more applicants, right?

So much for the fact that "each round has equal weightage"... now i am contemplating if i should have taken more time and applied in R3... that would have given me a few more months to work on outside office stuff that i am engaged in and then talk about them in my application when they were near completion..

Well, that's why they tell you to apply when your application is the strongest. If you apply earlier you show more interest in the school though. It ends up being a wash and at this point, your application is already in. If you get admitted today, great. If you're on the WL, work on strengthening the app. If you get denied, then it's time to reevaluate your options.

I was under the impression that applying in R1 would show that I am interested in Haas and that I am prepared ahead of those who will be applying in R2/R3... Not that I have anything against R2/R3 folks, but the fact that I could have gotten more time, just kills me.. maybe thats what they mean when they say "apply only when you think you have the best application"...

15% in R1 40% in R2 40% in R3 5% in R4 (or from all waitlists) (Feeling jobless today )

Total quota is 250, so in round1 they will admit 250*0.15=37.5 people. Or if they under admit, they admit 25, and waitlist the 12+

Is there any number on how much percentage of applications they get in round 1? Doesn't the number mean round 1 is a bad round to apply in? (Kinda contrast to what adcom says).

In that case, the more you wait to apply, the more stronger your application will be... So potentially someone can end up spending all his life in just trying to strengthen his application...

Well, now you see why I'm entering business school at age 30

If it makes a big difference to hold off on the application for 2-3 months, do it. If not, apply as early as you can. Especially if you're in an overrepresented career. I feel bad for the engineers applying to Berkeley. There's simply so many of you that a lot of good candidates get a WL or passed over entirely.

I wish I was a girl today... Might have been easier to kickass of a few boys with similar profiles in engineering.. Will I ever get into Haas with a software engineer title?
