I haven't made up my mind yet. Anderson days was awesome. I hadn't spent much time on campus when I went to interview. Some things that stood out -

1. Most of the people wanted to attend Anderson. They weren't undecided.
2. The campus is really really awesome.
3. Westwood has a great vibe.
4. Students are quite non-traditional. Lot of people are looking to create unique opportunities in atypical industries such as media, entertainment, energy etc.
5. The current class is extremely entrepreneurial. Lots of experiential learning opportunites both locally and internationally.
6. Alumni network seemed very passionate. A guy had flown from Chile with his wife to attend some alumni events.
7. Students were split in to groups of dozen for dinners around Westwood. I had dinner at a swanky place with the CEO of a company which has more than 10000 employees. The company's major stakeholder is the Harvard endowment. He started this company out of UCLA in 1989.
8. Current students were typically so-cal. Confident, competent yet relaxed and soaking in the experience.
9. Lots of people from Harvard, Yale etc who have accepted. A little intimidating. But they were all genuinely nice.

I just got interview last Thursday, and today I'm admitted!!!

This is my second admit aside from Ross. Between the two school, it would be a tough call.

Profile: 720, 3.5 from top US school, 3 years experience in Asia Pacific.

Great description lhotse. I think UCLA really benefits from its location and is able to utilize the attractiveness of Westwood, LA, the beaches and surrounding area to attract high-achieving students from around the country. There's definitely a sense of opportunity and entrepreneurship around campus.

Thanks agsfaltex,

It is a tough decision. I know LA has great weather, but I used got used to extreme cold and snow from my undergrad so I don't really mind it again either.

Nope, still waiting here as well. On the bright side it is only 8 days to go.

Adcom wants my latest GMAT score

I applied to UCLA for R2 , worried about my low gmat score i mentioned in the essays about my plans to retake the GMAT. Intention was to retake the GMAT if waitlisted. I never heard from the school until today and out of the blue, adcom requests for my updated score.

Now what should i do? Request for a month's time and try to increase the score or go ahead with my existing score.

The request came just before the decison date which is March 29..

Any advise friends?


Hi OZ, the way I see it you only have one option:

First of all, this is a positive sign, pretty much the ball is in your court here.

Request for an extension - make up a believable excuse as to why you couldn't get to it (work, travel etc)! Odds are you might have to be part of RD3, but if you can boost your GMAT (in one month) to above their mean/median, you'll have a good shot because they are asking for it.

I wouldn't try reasoning out the waitlist deal, because they're asking for the updated GMAT for a reason. I also wouldn't try cramming in the GMAT in 2 days and expect to score 710+.

Good Luck!!

So we're coming down to the final stretch for those of you still waiting just like me.

I heard some hearsay that some person got in on the last day of decisions, but I think that's some kind of special case (sent in official transcripts late or some other circumstance).

The best we can hope for is a waitlist. Although, I'm not exactly hoping for a waitlist.

Good luck to you guys.

So if we haven't heard by now it's probably no good? I didn't know that, there haven't been any reports lately of acceptances in the past few days on other boards. I'm still crossing my fingers.

Besides Business week forums, what forums are you talking about?

Yes, I need more posts to analyze and go crazy.
