Anyone else getting a little anxious to hear for round 3? Hoping for good news soon!

I had feedback on my waitlisted round 2 app and the main issue was my transition plans from the East Coast. I'm hoping my explanation was sufficient. I was told my app would go through the whole evaluation process again. I've also had some good academic updates.

Any guesses on the timing of the first round 3 calls? I'm hoping they start by the end of next week if not this week.
Based on what I've read previously, it looks like they tend to make the first calls on a Friday...


I am also a waitlisted round 2 applicant. They asked that I increase my GMAT because my undergrad GPA is low and something I can't change. I retook the test and emailed the adcom my new score and asked when they will make a decision. They said they could make decisions early May.

I wouldn't expect any decisions out by next week since the deadline for round 3 was only a week ago. I do think they might start the round 3 calls May 9.



Do you mind sharing your initial score btw?...


My initial GMAT score was 660. My GPA was 2.9. Junior and senior year GPA was 3.0. They said that I barely made the minimum GPA requirement. If I had gotten below a 3.0 my last two years, they would have had to petition for me and get a special exemption from the dean.

Anyways, I scored 700 of my GMAT a couple weeks ago.

WOW, FEMBA is stiff competition. Just goes to show that whole, we view your application as a whole is total nonsense. Congrats on the new score! My GMAT is a lil bit below the range, and I simply don't feel like taking the exam again. So, I'm pondering if I should bother applying or not.

I was waitlisted in round 2, like 3 weeks before round 2 decision day.

Congratulations PTMBAco2017 and Conektid! After reading this board for the last few weeks (or has it been months), I recognize both of your names. I'm happy to hear that your time on the wait-list is over and that you're finally in. I can only imagine that you've spent the afternoon telling everyone you know! You'll be going to bed tonight with HUGE smiles on your faces. Congrats!!!!

I was expecting them to take longer than this for round three applicants, so I wouldn't be surprised if our decisions are still a couple of weeks out. I'm wondering if they call people on the wait-list first? That would be pretty nice (read: merciful) of them since I've only been waiting two weeks and the suspense is driving me crazy! I can only imagine what it's been like for you two.

Anyway, I'm crossing my fingers and holding my breath... Dylan have mercy!

Anyone else get a call today?

Round 2 wait lister and I just got the call today letting me know I was accepted! I would encourage everyone to take advantage of the consultation they offer. They'll talk you through your app and identify any weak spots. In my case the pre-MBA math class through UCLA extension and a promotion at work were enough to get me over the hump.

Best of luck to those still waiting. See you all in the fall.

Yup, it was an ugly 700 though. Verbal 98%, Quant 54%. That's not exactly what most schools want to see.

Woohoo, also got the admit off the waitlist last friday.

GMAT 650, GPA 2.9

Got a new job with a 15% pay increase and signed up for a mba prep math course through UCLA extension after the initial decision and reported that to the school. I will be a deans list exception and will take a few extra weeks for everything to process through because of it but hey, whatever works right?

I was not expecting the call nor decision along with the rest of the round 3 admits and am pretty happy about it.

Cheers,
-Phil

Me too. I'm considering submitting an app for FEMBA round 4, but only if I don't get a good adcom response from the other school I applied too.

I went to FEMBA Super Saturday last month and I seriosuly dont think it was value-added for my application. It wasn't serious at all. It seemed like I was having small talk with a friend. The interview seemed like a check the box wash imo. Anyone had similar experiences?

Congratulations! Before getting a call, is the application status changed from "Your FEMBA application is complete and is being reviewed by our admissions committee" to other one?
