Hey everyone! I am sure many of you are out diligently working on those Haas apps right now. As a reminder, they are due on December 1 at 4pm. Make sure you get them in before then, or else they will NOT be considered. More info on Application and Selection for Haas Undergraduates.
As promised, I wanted to talk about my own application as a successful applicant of the Haas School of Business. As a reminder, it consists of 50% grades and coursework, 35% essays, and 15% resume.
Following up with my gigantic list of business clubs, I thought it would only be fitting if I talked about my own experience with extracurriculars. Experiences definitely vary person to person, and if you’re interested in learning more about a particular time of mine, feel free to shoot me an email! In addition, you should definitely ask members about their own experience in their organization, because these are not standardized.
At Berkeley, we have a ton of business related clubs to choose from, and sometimes it’s hard to find a comprehensive list of organizations and their activities! I’m going to try and consolidate all Berkeley organizations by type and emphasis. Beside the club, I will give a general description if it’s not inherently shown, and link them to their website, which will show you an idea of their club culture and what they’ve been up to. Italics are those that are Haas sponsored. Keep in mind that some of these groups may fit into more than one category. Most of these groups also have various committees that provide a chance to work with group promotions, finance, event planning, consulting, leadership and professional development, etc. Check these websites for their events, group culture, and connections if you’re interested! I tried to include as many organizations as I possibly could, I apologize if I forgot a couple. Remember that you don’t have to participate in any one of these clubs if you’d like to apply to Haas; remember your passion!
