Good Evening Everyone!

Congratulations to everyone that is taking this exciting step and submitting applications to MBA programs. I am a FEMBA student at Anderson, and wanted to make myself available to anyone that has questions about the application process or the experience. I know there is a lot to take in, weigh and worry about as this waiting game progresses.

One of the most frequent questions I get about the process is the about the interviews. The "Super Saturday" admission interviews can be daunting, but they are administered by students and alums that are passionate about the program, and just want to learn more about you guys. They are not gatekeepers, and although it is easier said then done, just take a breath relax, and treat it like another opportunity to learn about the program and get that added dimension beyond rankings speculation, and admission statistics. Best of luck, and I will be checking in on this thread to see if I can be of assistance!

Best,

Andy Bruin :-D

Derek,

It sounds like you are accomplished. Forget the stats...the die is cast and I wouldn't belabour the points. Dylan and FEMBA want to know about YOU. Everyone in contention has a lot under their belt and a lot to contribute, but find your honest voice and convey who you are and why you want to be here. Honestly, the GMAT, GPA and experience allow people into the conversation, and based on your numbers, you are in it. The lion's share of your time, should be spent finding your voice and desire for why you want to be at Anderson. How do you lead, and facilitate change? My classmates are dynamic as hell and amazing to work with, but I do not benefit from their GPA or GMAT. My classmates are awesome people with sweet experiences. Sell yours. BTW...surrounded by engineers in my section--good people! Best of luck!

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?


That's correct, annual tuition is about ~$36k for UCLA FEMBA. If I remember correctly, when I was applying last year, the difference was that USC's fees are not locked in, meaning each year it can go up and at the end of your program cost more than UCLA's. UCLA's is locked in the year you apply for the remainder of the program. The 2012 FEMBA Class actually has books included in their fees and they were locked in at a lower rate than our class.

On another note, I wouldn't focus too much about the difference of a few thousand dollars. Not saying it's not important, but your decision should be based more on fit with the program than which is a few thousand cheaper.

Folks,

The wordings on my status today are a little different.
It says: "Your FEMBA application is currently being reviewed by the admissions committee and a decision will be released by the publish date for your round."

Previously, it used to state: "Your FEMBA application is complete and is being reviewed by our admissions committee."

Anyone else having this updated message in their online status??....



Yes, mine says "your application has been reviewed by the admissions committee and you have been put on the wait list". I called thekm to see what the process was and they told me that they think their is an error in the status and will try to call me back by the end of the day.

Also received a call from UCLA this afternoon but missed the call! No voicemail was left. When I called the number back I reached a general UCLA afterhours recording. Looks like I'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Anyone who has already interviewed on Super Saturday - it would be nice to know your experience. Anything to be aware of ? Any unusual questions?

Thanks.


I did a Super Saturday interview for round 2, and I thought it was pretty typical/standard, without any real out-of-the-ordinary questions. My questions were along the line of tell me about your background, work history, why are you pursuing an MBA now, why UCLA, etc. One point to keep in mind is that the interviewer has not seen your application, so feel free to talk about topics you address in your essays - you may think it's redundant, but they haven't heard it yet.

HTH, and good luck to all the round 3 applicants!

How many people here are signing up for the math, stats and excel refresher courses in August?


The refresher course for Excel really isn't needed, I'd recommend saving your money. Anything you do in Excel for Stats and Finance the first year, the prof. will go over in detail. For Math and Stats, very very few people from my section took those, and those that did, they said there was a lot of repetition in that the prof. goes over it in the first weeks.

Is anyone else getting antsy waiting for the FEMBA decision date (December 9)??

I applied in R1 but was unable to make it to Super Saturday for an interview. I was not contacted for a phone interview, so that might be a bad sign. The one major weakness in my application is my cumulative GPA (3.03), however, I'm hoping that my major GPA (3.8) will make up for it.

I hate waiting! How are the rest of you getting through this?

@amylucha, I feel your pain. I am getting anxious as well. I'm the yin to your yang. Hoping my GPA makes up for less than stellar GMAT. I am surprised there are no decisions out yet for FEMBA r1. Don't know what to expect...

I am thinking decisions will be released on or within a few days of the deadline. What does everybody's status message say on the online app?
