R2 admit. Got the confirmation call on 3/15. Congratulations to all the admits so far and good luck to everyone waiting for the results.
Did any of the admits receive any information about financial aid/scholarship? I was told to call the fin aid office but have not done yet.

Odds of getting off the waitlist at a part-time program? [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2013, 08:53
I'm waitlisted at UCLA and was wondering if anyone (from any school) got accepted off the waitlist by not changing anything in their profile? I don't have time to re-take the GMAT (I was told that was the issue by the adcom), however I am getting somewhat of a lateral promotion due to sequestration and furloughs.

I'm not entirely sure if UCLA FEMBA allows this or not, but I know other schools will allow you to update your essays while you are waitlisted. You can also send them updates if you have a change in your job, a third recommendation, or any other major updates in extracurricular areas.

If they allow these, I would do as many as you possibly can, not only showing them sincere interest in the program, but showing them your leadership progression even during this short window.

Yes , I did. I was wait listed in R1 , I scheduled an application feedback call. Anderson suggested to increase my gmat score (which was 620 when I applied ). I took the gmat again , improved my score to 700, and now I am in. I also added a third recommendation , just in case.

Ucla prefers updates , without updates they wouldn't even re-visit your application.

I'm still on the waitlist from Dec 12... I really hope they make more calls this round.


I'm in a similar situation, excpet I'm Round 2. My deposit is due on the 15th of April to USC. Did you end up paying the deposit? If so, are you willing to give it up if you get off of the waitlist? That's a question that I've been thinking about lately...

At this point, I don't plan on taking academic courses / re-taking the GMAT, and as a military member I won't see a promotion, outside of the increased responsibilities due to sequestration. Don't know if that will be enough with my low GMAT, but I guess we'll see.


Like racer , I was also wait listed in ucla and admitted to USC. My deposit was due on jan 15th. I had to pay that off , and now that I am admitted I will have to let it go ( which I had already written it off since Anderson was my first choice). Anderson's program is much better , specially GAP sounds pretty awesome , ranked much better ....

As I said earlier , Anderson adc on told me when I was waitlisted that without any updates they won't even revisit your application again , so my guess will be you won't get off of the waitlist without any changes !
