I tried to ignore it, but ‘some prospective’ kept catching my eye, so I wanted to check whether I’m receiving all of it or not. Thanks for the response!

Hey, I don’t know whether the process for consortium applicants is different, but for individual applicants the Video Essay (defining leadership principle) is always on the portal and must be completed before hitting submit. It was a section called "Video Essay" on the menu on the left of the screen and once you click it a web recorder will appear. I don’t know if it shows differently for consortium.

Hey thanks for looking out nydedan. I just got an email from Berkeley 2 days ago stating that they received my application and I have a week to submit the Video Essays, so I am in the clear. Thanks again for your response.

I see a lot of people on LiveWire asking if others have received an email saying something along the lines of "your application is complete." I assume this is different than the email confirming the submission of your application? Has anybody received the "application complete" email? Kinda curious what that means in the review process

I have not. Got your app is submitted but that’s all. Ended up calling them to confirm they had everything needed and they confirmed my app was under review

The only thing that I saw when I checked the forums was that a lot of people get the email and invitation to interview on the same day. And many of them got accepted. So my theory is that your application is strong when that happens. But only a theory.

Yeah. As I said, there are so many theories around this email that a pattern could not be associated with it. I read about the email here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... 3-140.html

Doesn’t seem there is a difference. I have been trying to understand the pattern of these emails. Most applicants who get invited to interview receive the application status/complete email a couple hours after the interview invite.
So the application complete/status email seems to indicate that there was a decision made about your application (reject/wl/interview)

I see only one difference - the application complete mail says "your application is ready for review" while the status update mail says "application under review". Did anyone get both emails?

I applied R2, and I got the second email (Your Berkeley Haas Application Status) last week but no interview invite. Someone on reddit told me that this means that they’ve made a decision on your application so if there’s no invite, then its either a ding/waitlist. But someone else mentioned they got their interview invite a few weeks after receiving that email. I guess there’s no way of knowing, it could mean anything. :.
