Berkeley MBA Interview Invitation

The smile I had on Monday evening just got wee-bit wider. =)

BW: Admissions Q&A with Pete Johnson & Jett Pihakis
Pihakis: Last year, we created Super Saturday interview days. Tomorrow is a Super Saturday for about 100 round-one applicants. It's an opportunity for us to do a huge number of interviews in one day. We invite people from all around the world so that they can get a day of activities and an interview. They hear from current students and career-services representatives, and they get to meet each other.

Last year, we did it as a result of feedback: People who had come to campus were disappointed with their interview experience because all they had was a 45-minute interview, as classes weren't in session.

Johnson: An invitation to attend a Super Saturday doesn't mean you're offered admission. These applicants are still under consideration.

Pihakis: Of those we interviewed last year, 75% were offered admission.

Johnson: But we expect that percentage to change this year as we move toward interviewing the vast majority of people we consider for admission.


I'm so excited because not only do I get to interview with my alma mater, but I also get to go visit the frat I started and attend a rush event! GO PSP!

This has turned out to be a wonderful week! I wish all my weeks were filled with such great news!!! =)

Thanks guys!

At this point, I'm not sure what my first choice is. Every school has their strengths that attracted me to them in the first place.

I would probably say that these are the things that are most important to me:
1) Entrepreneurialism
2) Close to my Family (Los Angeles)
3) Technology Emphasis

The admission process in the university leads with some sort of interview. The MBA interview planned for the admission purpose. This may see the interest for the candidate in the subject of essay writing company. The detail for the course discoed with the students for the future and some past academic detail known by the management.
