Hi guys

Any body got interview invites for R3? I applied on April 14th 2014.
Does ucla intimate the candidate if not short listed?

Hi cssrikanthca,

Your experience is impressive, but Anderson may question your GMAT scores. Also, round three tends to be the most competitive. Perhaps you should re-test and apply again in round one.


Hi Jack,

Thanks for the response. I do understand your view point and agree that I might have to retake the test. But just wanted to know if UCLA responds to those candidates who are not short listed for interview. Because the website clearly says that they may not be able to give feedback on rejected admissions after interviews. But how about the shortlisting of applications and sending interview invites.

Any R2 Waitlist folks have any updates or insights?

This wait is torture...


The wait is pretty bad - I check this site pretty much daily and the lack of transparency into the process is frustrating (and unavoidable). At least we should have some update in early June.


Agree. Applied on April 14th 2014. Waiting for an update.

Will still be ok if not invited. But just want to know whats happening :(

What is the last date till which we have to wait for an update. Been checking the status tab and email obsessively.

The decision deadline is on June 3. Since early May, Anderson knows exactly the number of Round 2 admitted that accepted their spot. Hence they are probably now in a position to evaluate candidates and understand what type of profiles they would like to add up to the Class of 2016. I would not get worried until the end of May.

There is still time, keep calm and try to keep your eyes away from this forum as Anderson sends interviews in different batches. Good luck to you!

there's your answer - now the question is, will they update candidates before the decision deadline - has anyone heard a definitive answer?

Anyone applied for round three and did not get an interview invite yet?
As they have said in the blog update that the vast majority of interview invites have already gone out... So those who haven't received an invite are most probably to get denied?

Hi Mate,

Pretty much in the same boat. I guess we have to wait till end of May. Do they send a mail if dinged. Just wondering :roll:

The same for me, still no answer. From what I could understand we have about one more week to expect interview invitations. They will send an email with the decision anyway, if admitted or dinged. Good luck to both of you!!

Hi everyone, I need opinions! I got accepted into Haas EWMBA and UCLA full-time. I have not received financial aid for either program, although I may be able to get my MBA paid for by the company I work for if I pursue the Haas EWMBA route.

Which MBA program is better between the two..Haas part time or UCLA full-time? It seems like Haas part-time does not have the prestige as the full time program, which has me worried. I also don't know if it is worth going to a full-time program and taking out large amounts of loans.

Any opinions?

It seems like you're leaning towards Haas based on the financial support. But, you would rather go to UCLA, if all things were equal. You should contact admissions and explain your situation. If you receive a fellowship to UCLA, then the scales might lean towards Anderson. The financial support should be a major issue, and I think it would be hard to accept UCLA w/no money vs. Cal w/full-ride.

See what Anderson can do about fellowships. It can't hurt to ask.

Unfortunately there is no hope for any financial support for UCLA at this point. I didn't get any fellowships and it is too late to get any type of scholarship. I am 90% sure that I will get financial support if I attend Haas but that is not fully guaranteed, and there is the possibility that I will leave my job to intern somewhere or try out a new position with a different company, which means that my financial support will be cut. I guess my main question would be is UCLA full time considered a better program than Haas part time? If I applied to Haas full time I would know for sure that it was ranked higher and an overall better program.

Still waiting for R3 Update. I reached out to Adcom last week. Requested for status update and mentioned that the status of application does not change in the website. Got a reply from them to wait till June 3rd as they were sending interview invites.
