Interviews for the Berkeley Full-time MBA Program are by invitation only, and candidates are selected for interviews after at least two members of the Admissions Committee have reviewed the application. For Round 1, invitations began going out in mid-November, and will continue to be sent until close to the Round 1 response date.
If you applied in Round 1 and have not yet received an invitation to interview, please be patient—there are likely to be many more invitations in the next two weeks. There is no fixed quota of applicants who will be interviewed in each round—it is simply a function of which applicants the Admissions Committee feels are strongest. Additionally, all candidates who are offered a place on the waitlist will be offered an opportunity to interview as well.
