Just received a FEMBA email stating that they are accepting apps till May 31st (a full blown extension)...If I would have known this, I would have waited on my other decision and saved $200 bucks...lol...I'm just wondering if there is a shortage or if they are trying to find the purple squirrel candidates.... Because at Super Saturday, a current FEMBA student told me his cohort was majority engineers. And lets just say he didn't say it in a positive light....I'm not saying he said it negative either, but my take is that he mentioned it to say Adcom didn't diversify the cohort enough....Any thoughts? I did not receive that email?? Hmm.. Did you ever hear back from the admissions office .. You were contacting them for something weren't you?

No I did not. But, I was able to schedule an appt with Adcom next week, so I'll just follow-up..lol.. Maybe I received the email in error. But, they are extending round 4 till next week.

Yea, I applied to USC and UCLA. USC is my #1 option. I may apply to LMU as a safe school, but I really don't see the point of pursuing an MBA outside of UCLA or USC. FEMBA is cool, but I don't know... there is something that is pulling me toward USC...lol...I think these two prospects from an Admissions 101 event still haunt me..lol...One had an outdated resume (w/ a tutoring job) and the other was on a dead-end career. But, I am sure FEMBA weeds these folks out.

To make sure I don't sound bias, my experience at USC's info session was a bit odd as well. It was like 6 people, including the Adcom speakers..lol... And a few grad students were chased off for trying to scavenge the leftover food.

No....Did you submit in r3, but had materials that came in afterwards...Seems pretty late for your application to just change to submitted....

For what it's worth, my class (class of 2015, 2012 application cycle) has significantly fewer engineers than other classes, but there is definitely no way that a cohort is "majority engineers." From what I've seen, classes tend to hover around 25% engineers inclusive of all engineering majors. With that said I have never seen a class that "wasn't diverse enough;" counting the number of engineers is a far stretch from concluding that a class is not diverse enough.

And yes, I am an engineer turned manager. Best of luck to all your apps!

I am in the waitlist. What Should I do next step?

I need to sign in the form within one week. How I can improve something within one week?

Because I need to fill in the field of "Please provide any updates to your application that you feel would improve your candidacy:"

I've heard that the admissions office will give a "consultation" if you are put on the waitlist. I think I read on one of the previous pages of this post that somebody went to one and found it extremely helpful. I would call the admissions office Monday morning and ask to set up one of those appointments. At the very least you should go to it in order to show that you are interested and willing to do what it takes to get off of the list!

And congratulations on making the waitlist- it's better than a NO! And it's a foot in the door!

I Got admitted into UCLA , the call came on Friday.

My story attests to the fact that GMAT is not everything and that the Adcoms look at your entire application.

In my case my career progression, GPA, reco and my admission interview helped overcome the GMAT.

Good-luck to others who are waiting.

Hi all!

I want to apply for the FEMBA class of 2018. Before I begin the process I would like to know my odds of acceptance. I have six years of work experience, three in public accounting, three for a fortune 500 company. I have a degree in Finance, however i have 2.75 GPA. I took four classes this last semester in math related course and received a 3.5 GPA. Does this help? I have yet to take the GMAT, but in my practice tests I'm scoring in the 680 range. If I submit an application with the above credentials do I have a chance? I appreciate everyone's help!

Because I need to fill in the field of "Please provide any updates to your application that you feel would improve your candidacy:"

The first part is just a confirmation that you're interested in being put on the wait list. I think they just offer up some space to include any changes if applicable, I was able to include a project that I started at work and another that was starting in a few weeks. In this case I think anything helps.

After that, at the bottom of your letter there should be some info about contacting Christy Marquez for an admissions consultation. I believe this is only available to wait listed applicants and she'll go through your app and basically tell you where you were dinged. Hopefully it something that you can either fix or show that you're making some progress to correct. For me, it was some of my math work so I sign up for pre-MBA math at Berkeley extension. They have an online course you can start at any time and that was enough to get me accepted. Even though I hadn't even started they mark those changes on your file. My guess is that it probably goes a long way if you call them up and show a willingness to work for your admission.
