For the many people who were asking about fellowship offers, the fellowship offer is extended through a separate e-mail from the admissions e-mail. I received my fellowship offer e-mail about 4 hours after my admission. Definitely a nice surprise :).

Is this something they do for many (or all) dings? I don't think the FEMBA would fit me anyway, but I'm just curious.


I also received that message. I'm wondering if anybody didn't receive that. Any dings out there who didn't get that message?

I received it as well. Could just be a generic message, yes?


Got the same... Would be curious to know if everyone got it, as well. Not sure that it helps me, as I live half way across the country.

I live the full way across the country, but I wonder if I can be "fully employed" at somewhere like a Starbucks. :)

Was wondering if anybody was in the same situation as me ...

I was lucky to hear that I was admitted from R2 a few weeks ago (March 12th to be exact), but I have yet to receive an admissions package. In my acceptance e-mail, they said that I should expect an admissions package within the "next few weeks" (it's been 3 weeks now). Anybody else in the same boat? Maybe they were waiting to send out all of the admissions packages once the Round 2 decision deadline passed?

Declining my spot and 1/2 tuition $$ - so hope that helps some waitlisters out there!

I had an AWFUL experience with admissions and during my visits (see my earlier posts) but came into this process with Anderson atop my list. Do what feels right - for me its no longer Anderson. I hope somebody who had a better experience is able to take my spot and someone in need of some assistance gets my scholarship.

The process isn't fun for anyone but hopefully I can do some good by turning it down early.

Best of LUCK!

I was admitted on 3/12 too and also did not receive my package. I even e-mailed them earlier this week about it and haven't heard back.

Urgh Waitlisted.... That is annoying.

Does anyone know if there is any chance of getting off the Waitlist before the round 3 deadline or do they revisit all the waitlisted applicants in the light of round 3 applicants?

Thanks and congrats to all admitted!

I'm in the same boat. It looks like Anderson generally offers a yes or no decision to waitlisters by the deadline for the next round. Our round three deadline will be June 3, so expect an answer before that. :)

Just got that too. It's a very cruel e-mail to send...aside from the e-mail title, the wording in the first paragraph of that e-mail was not very good in my opinion.

Yep, just received it recently too. Maybe it's just me, or maybe I don't quite understand how FEMBA works (I've only ever considered full-time), but it feels a little sad. It sort of feels as though they're desperate for applicants by pawning off the rejected and also by emphasizing that you can receive a decision in less than a month. This is all just my uninformed opinion though.

Is that $25k a year? Anyone know how many of these fellowships they give out? Curious how rare it is to get, and what amount is average.

1) Anderson (Full-time) vs 2) Haas (Part-time) vs 3) Reapplying next year

(This is going to be a long post. Please bear with me. Your inputs to help me make this crucial decision would be highly appreciated.)

I am glad to be selected to Haas EWMBA program and Anderson full-time (with $50K fellowship) program. I am trying to figure out the pros and cons of the two programs. I am also considering skipping this year and applying full-fledged next year.

Given below are the details about my profile and plans.

Profile:
Indian, Male, Age: 29, GMAT 730, (Q49, V40)

Work experience details:
5.5 years with a Govt agency. Worked in different engineering roles for the first 3 years. Working with project management division for the last 2.5 years.


Post-MBA plans:

Path A: Would like to move into management consulting in firms like PWC, Bain, and KPMG. Prefer to work in infrastructure management and PPP (Public-Private Partnership) roles, but open to explore other areas too.

Path B: In my present job in project management I spend a significant amount of time on data-analytics. Along with Infrastructure Industry, Data Analytics is my passion. If I chose this path, ultimately, I would like to set up my own data-analytics firm. I still need to figure what kind of roles would be suitable and are of interest to me in this field, post-mba. Any insights in this regard would be helpful.

Given my profile and plans, below are the pros and cons that I could think of:

1) Haas EWMBA:
Pros:
a) Family settled in Bay-Area, so it would be easier on that front.
b) Berkeley brand (I am not sure how much importance I should give to this with respect to my MBA. Being an Engineer, UCB brand for me is second to none, and on par with MIT and Stanford)

Cons:
a) career change might be difficult
b) might be missing that full-fledged MBA experience
c) network (not sure how much a part-time MBA would help me build a strong personal and professional network)

2) Anderson full-time MBA
Pros:
a) easier to change careers
b) full-fledged MBA experience might be a positively life transformative experience, especially with respect to my soft-skills and people management skills.
c) network, both personal and professional

Cons:
a) I am sure Anderson has its own strengths, but I am concerned how much I am losing compared to a M7 or Top 10 MBA
b) Family Relocation (I know I can't complain moving from NorCal to SoCal, given that many people shift countries for MBA. Nevertheless, it still is a concern)

3) Reapplying (full-time):
Due to personal constraints, this year, I had to start my application process in the very last minute (First week of January). I applied three schools - Kellogg full-time, Anderson full-time, and Haas EWMBA). I am confident of my story, and am sure that I can put a better application next year. However, with respect to age and work experience, I’ll fall closer to extreme right on averages at most top 10 schools. I am not thinking of Harvard or Stanford, but I am confident of getting into at least one M7 school.

Thank you for taking time to read my long post. Please reply with your suggestions and comments. They would be immensely helpful for me in making this crucial decision.

Bachelors: Civil Engineering, IIT Madras, GPA: 7.32/10,
Masters: Transportation Engineering, Texas A&M University, GPA 3.9/4.0

Certifications:
CFA Level 3 Candidate.
Professional Engineer, State of California.
Graduate Certificate in Business, Mays Business School, Texas A&M University


Work experience details:
5.5 years with California Department of Transportation. Worked in different engineering roles for the first 3 years. Working with project management division (present role - Assistant Project Manager) for the last 2.5 years.

I applied three schools - Kellogg full-time, Anderson full-time, and Haas EWMBA). Spent a week on Kellogg, another week on Haas, and 3-5 days on Anderson. I am confident of my story, and am sure that I can put a better application next year. However, with respect to age and work experience, I’ll fall closer to extreme right on averages at most top 10 schools. I am not thinking of Harvard or Stanford, but I am hopeful of getting into at least one M7 school. This is what my thinking is:

Kellogg/Booth/Sloan/Columbia
- I think I have a decent chance of getting into at least one of those schools if I put my best application. I’ll be happy if I get into those next year.
Haas/Tuck/Stern
- I am confident of getting admitted to at least one of these. I’ll be satisfied.
Any other school
- I guess, one year later, I would feel that I might have been better off joining Anderson when I had the option.

Thank you for taking time to read my long post. Please reply with your suggestions and comments. They would be immensely helpful for me in making this crucial decision.

Congrats on your admit Ram. This is a pretty good problem to have :) Since you are looking for a industry/career change, you might wanna keep two things in mind.

1. Internship - Absolutely critical for career changers.
2. Age - Younger the better.

UCLA Full-time is a great program. Recruiters WILL differentiate between a full time and a part time program. A Berkeley brand will NOT offset that. Plus, the school is NOT invested in finding you a job in a part-time program where as in a full time program the school really cares that you get a job (as it reflects on their career services report.)

My advice for you is to wait a year and apply to schools that you truly want to attend.

Business school imposes a lot of cost on students. Not only does it cost $100K over 2 years just in tuition alone, you also lose your earning powers during that time period (although you don't have that issue with a part-time program).

To me, it sounds like Anderson does not fit perfectly with your career plans. Although you have an option to attend Anderson as you have been admitted, it's your prerogative to turn down the offer extended to you.

During my process, I did think briefly about applying a year after to "higher ranked" schools but at the end of the day, I felt comfortable with what Anderson had to offer and joined the community.

It's a substantial investment on your part. You want to join a community that you truly want to belong.
