Hi Guys,
I am applying for R2. Just took my GMAT last weekend, and I got a 630, Q-47, V-30 AWA 5.0
I'm 34 yrs old, I have 6 years WE in IT, work for a Fortune 500 in the LA area. I hold two Masters degree in Engineering, and a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering. What are my chances of admission at UCLA Anderson for FEMBA 2012.

Anyone here from San Diego? It'd be nice to set up an SD FEMBA happy hour for all who got in this past round so we can all get to know each other.


Anyone from OC?

I am no adcom member but here is my opinion fwiw.

From BB/BW here are the GMAT distributions for the previous (2014) class.
10% - 640, 25% - 660, 50% - 690, 75% - 710, 90% - 730

Your GMAT score is in the bottom 10th percentile. Your verbal score is quite low, even for an engineer. Was this your first shot at the GMAT?

That being said, you do have good work experience (Fortune 500). Hopefully you can show career progression with increasing responsibilities and hopefully some supervision of people in there especially at your age. One thing I would be careful with is the "why an MBA" question. You already have 2 masters and now you want to get an MBA - just make sure you can tie your future career goals to obtaining an MBA and why 2 masters in engineer are not enough.

Good luck!

Congratulations to all of you that made it in. To those that didn't...keep your heads up and take pride in a lot of hard work in a competitive applicant pool; having the guts to aspire for more puts you a head taller than the rest in my book. Five years ago, I got dinged from Johnson (Cornell) two years in a row. Five years later I found a home at Anderson, and I cannot imagine being anywhere else. I know that Dylan was really excited about all of you applicants, and spoke highly of you at last night's open house for prospective round 2 and 3 people.

Some current students will be reaching out to admits and look forward to learning more about you and offering our experience to you should you have any onboarding questions or anything else that you didn't want to ask admissions directors or staff during the application process. Congrats again to all of you starting this next phase of your lives (at Anderson and elsewhere) and best wishes to you and yours this holiday season.

Best regards,

Andy Bruin

Does anyone know the total cost of the program? The only information I can find is the 1st year "fee" which is $36,000 (not including books, materials, fees, etc). Is this really the fee for each of the 3 years for a total of $108,000?

If that's the case, then it's more expensive than Marshall MBA.PM, which is $108,000 BUT INCLUDES fees, books, parking, etc.

Is it true that UCLA is actually more expensive than USC? Can anyone chime in on this?

Hey Guys,

New thread master here.... For the admitted applicants, are any of you going to the Welcome Event on the 21st?

Also, for the remaining applicants, I'd be more than happy to take general questions on admissions.

I am deciding whether to do the 2 weekday classes or the 2 Saturday classes. I work in OC and my work schedule is flexible enough that I'd be able to leave at 2 and beat traffic if I do the weekday classes. This is appealing to me because then I don't have to spend an entire Saturday at school.

However, I think the majority of OC commuters will be taking the 2 Saturday classes and I would like to get to know the people who are in my area better. Any OC ppl planning on doing the weekday classes?

Can anyone please give me their take on the pros/cons of weekday vs Saturday classes?

Campus is normally dead on Saturdays? Plus I didn't want to take an extra day a week for school. I wanted to keep my full weekend.

I just interviewed today, Super Saturday for FEMBA R2. My overall experience was positive - it was more of a casual conversation than a typical interview and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Unfortunately, I think I was nervous and didn't come across as well as I would have liked - we'll just have to see. Kudos to UCLA for an awesome open house last weekend, and a friendly atmosphere for Super Saturday. The more exposure I have to this program and to the people involved, the more I want to go!

Playing the waiting game till <= 3/23/2012 ...

I also found the super saturday to be a positive experience. I was paired with a current femba student that I'd say i clicked with pretty well. No strange questions... mostly why UCLA FEBMA, what have I accomplished in my career, what would I like to do next....
