Can anyone confirm if that is the "Dashboard" portion of the application page? Where the application status and recommendation providers appear? Or somewhere else? I don't see a field for Document status, unless it's added later.


I asked this exact question at the admissions office the other day. They told me that I'll see the updated status on the screen that appears after I log in, below the "APPLICATION STATUS: SUBMITTED" line.


Has anyone seen this updated status yet?

I haven't! And the interview invite email I received said, "We will update your ApplyYourself account within 5-7 business days of receiving your package, so please check there for your document status." Tomorrow will be past the 7 business day mark for me since they received my materials, so I'm going to follow up with them then.

1) I interviewed via skype last week.
2) My FedEx tracking says my materials has been successfully delivered - signed by Silva.

My status still remains as "Submitted" today. No mention whether my interviewer has submitted his notes. I guess at this point everyone who has interviewed are in the same boat as me.

Oh and I only got to know my interviewer's identity 30 minutes before the interview. He sent me a brief introductory email. Was able to track him on linkedin, but I feel it didnt really matter much.

Judging from my experience, I suspect I may have the same interviewer as mgh234.

Same here. I feel that if we don't hear anything before Dec first week I think it's more or less done and dusted. :(

Hello,

Just had my skype interview.

It lasted for 35 min and the interviewer was very nice and accomodating.

Questions were pretty much standard -
Resume walkthrouhg
short and long term goals
why MBA - why UCLA
A Failure

Overall , I am not sure how it went. Keeping my fingers crossed !

BTW - The interviewer did mention that they are tyring to get the decisions out much sooner than Jan.

Cheers,
r2k

Not yet--I contacted the admissions office last Friday, and they said, "We are currently updating the status of your documents and this will be reflected in ApplyYourself in the next week or so."

So I hope I'll see something by the end of this week! But I might give it a few days after that, even. They don't seem to be in too much of a rush about this, so I'm less worried.

Does anyone know where we can find the list of recommendation questions?

There are some sample ones provided online (below), but I'd like to get a list to my recommender prior to adding into name / email / etc into the system.

Quote:
Sample Recommendation Questions and Topics*
1. How strong is the candidate's focus in terms of being results-oriented, strategically-minded, and career-driven?
2. How does the candidate demonstrate leadership, e.g., by creating a vision, motivating others, managing resources, and taking risks?
3. How strong are the candidate's interpersonal skills as shown by their professionalism, teamwork, attitude, and conflict management?
4. How effective is the candidate in communicating clearly, eloquently, and confidently (in written and oral form)?
5. What are the areas in which the candidate could develop further?

*Please note: Questions and topics listed above are for reference only. Actual submission of letters of recommendation is done online, through the application system only.

Those are the exact questions, along with a few check boxes to check on whether exceptional or excellent and etc.

Great, thank you! Are there individual boxes to answer each question, or the does the recommender just upload one file?

My recommender told me there are individual boxes with VERY tight word limits. He drafted a letter and had to cut a LOT of information due to the word limit.

Your recommender will submit answers to each question separately. Also note there is a 700 character count limit for each response (including spaces)

I went out for drinks with my recommender a few weeks ago, and she specifically brought up how much more difficult the UCLA one was compared to others. So make sure you give your recommendater ample time to fill out the UCLA one, since they can't just copy and paste their standard rec.

Folks, I heard that some candidates are being interviewed by Second year students while some are being interviewed by Admissions Directors.. Is this true ?

Thanks,
