Berkeley HAAS personal statement question

<p>How many essays for HAAS do you have to write/ how much is the first personal statement weighed compared to the rest? If I am not mistaken, these are the personal statements transfer students must write this coming fall correct? <a href="http://students.berkeley.edu/files/Admissions/12626_5.Info_TransAdm.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://students.berkeley.edu/files/Admissions/12626_5.Info_TransAdm.pdf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Just wanted clarification on the matter.</p>

<p>bump it up</p>

<p>As far as I know, 2 general prompts for all transfer applicants during November, an extra essay and a resume next January. So 4 total, I guess.</p>

<p>For your 2nd ?, the essay and resume weigh 1/2 of the admission decision, according to their website: Application</a> and Selection Calendar, Undergraduate Program - Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley . Having said that, it all varies from applicants to applicants so just do you best, don't worry too much abt this scale ^o^</p>

<p>Thanks,</p>

<p>so the 3 essays are all weighted equally?</p>

<p>I don't know, just put your heart into each essay lol
But the third one may be weighted more than the other two since it's exclusive for Haas, I guess. Ask those folks that got into Haas this year for more details :D</p>

<p>The third essay is the one that tests how much of a match you are for Haas. I would consider it the most important. If you have something really awesome to say, reserve it for that one.</p>

<p>Thanks! how do you know about this?</p>

<p>I was accepted to Haas. They asked for an essay on the principles of the school. I'd recommend you to spend some time learning about their values in order to formulate them the way they expect you to.</p>

<p>hi sonomono,what kind of topics they are often asking for?</p>

<p>Last year's topic:</p>

All applicants are required to answer the following essay question.</p>

<p>At Haas we value our Defining Principles (Confidence without Attitude, Question the Status Quo, Students Always, Beyond Yourself). Pick one principle. Why is this principle important and how do you identify with it?</p>

<p>Please limit your response to approximately 500 words. To avoid a session timeout, we recommend that you compose your essay in a word processor using its Word Count feature, and then cut and paste it in this space.
