Just got a call as well. R3 applicant. Got in!! Anderson has release their R3 results 5 weeks early!!


The R3 decisions were supposed to come in today. That being said, I'm not sure why the R2 decision date is listed next friday, a week after R3 decision. Some people got in last week, so obviously they changed their schedule somewhat.

I also just got my call today! I'm in!!!

My case proves GMAT isn't everything. I scored 620 on the GMAT, but the rest of my application was very strong :)

Even though my score seems to be out of the 80% range, I'm thankful that the adcom took the time to look at my entire submission.

The admission committee requires "a degree certificate in native language ". Any international student from India here ? I am from Pune university and their degree certificate is in English ...not sure how to get a degree certificate in native language ???

If your degree certificate is in English then you do not need to get one in native language. Thats my opinion. You may want to confirm with adcom

Being a R3 Applicant it was a pleasant surprise to get the call on Friday -did not expect it!! I will be waiting for the Haas EWMBA results later this week (where I am waitlisted) before accepting the FEMBA offer.
Relieved to know that I will be attending a fantastic MBA program no matter what! :)

Hi All
Long-time reader, first time poster

I was accepted into Anderson FEMBA Round 1. Although I was planning on applying to other prominent part-time programs, including Booth, Haas, and Kellogg, once I got into Anderson, I didn't bother submitting my application to any of the others.

Anderson was my first pick given it's reputation, integration of FEMBA with the full-time students / campus community, and quality of career services available to FEMBA's. Anderson's commuting option (FLEX) was also a very important factor as I will be a fly-in student.

For financial and career reasons, part-time was the best option for me.

However, I have some advice for everyone still with outstanding applications, do not stress over GMAT. My impressions (and therefore opinion) of the overall admissions process was that diversity/quality of career experience and goals are what most greatly sways the "yay" or "nay" admissions decision. If you have a compelling or unusual background of high quality and your GMAT is in the 80% range (which for Anderson FEMBA is 640-740'ish, I think), GMAT becomes a "check" rather than an influencer.

Therefore, if you get in the mid 600's or higher, I wouldn't stress too much for Anderson FEMBA. However, I think this logic can be applied to other schools and full-time programs - get in their 80% GMAT range, and you should be good.

Now since rankings are important and GMAT greatly influences them, it is my impression (and therefore opinion) that a stella GMAT score (i.e. 750 or higher) may make the admissions committees 'forgive' a less compelling/application background; however, I heard of stories of those with 3.8 GPA's and astronomical GMAT scores getting rejected given lack of compelling goals and work experience.

GMAT quant also becomes a little more important in my opinion if you have no quant background to demonstrate your ability (ie you never took calculus, you currently work as a journalist, etc.); however, if you can show your ability to handle quantitive work other ways, it again falls into that "check" category. Get in the 80% range, and you should be fine.

Therefore, it does not suprise me that folks with less than 700 GMAT's got into Anderson and many other wonderful part-time and full-time programs, including the coveted top 5 full-time programs. Get in the 80% range with a unique compelling high-quality application, and you should be fine.

For all those admitted to Anderson, I look forward to meeting you :-D

got rejected from full-time but they accepted me for the part-time since I live and work across ucla. I'm super excited , I think they wanted to give people outside of LA an oppurinity for the full time and people in LA to the part time.

did you apply to both programs? I thought they'd only let you apply to one or the other.

Is anyone opting for the flex option? I work in the bay area and am still debating between flex and the weekend option. I am sure some of you might have given it a thought and would love to hear your views on it. I might be moving to LA next year so that complicates things even more. Is it possible to switch between the flex and regular classes after a semester or so?

I am commuting from Bay Area too and was in the same dilemma but opted for Flex option as my most preferred scheduling option. I felt that commuting every weekend would be too hectic for me...especially because I plan on driving mostly and don't plan to move to LA for now. If you plan to move to LA early next year and it's only one quarter that you'll need to commute from bay area, in that case I'd pick the weekend option if I were you, but that's just my opinion because I highly prefer in-class experience over online.

From what I know, the scheduling option that you pick right now is what you'll have to stay with for the 1st year - all the core classes. They mentioned that changing the scheduling option during this time would be 'difficult', so not impossible but I'm guessing they'll want strong reasons to change your section if each section is filled to capacity already...you may want to check with admissions department.

Somewhere I read two people from last year's class switched from regular to flex. It's probably much easier to switch from reg to flex than visa versa. Something you might want to consider or talk to the admins about it

I applied only for the full-time but they sent the dinged letter but included in it if I were interested in FEMBA. So I went to the business school the very next morning and talked about FEMBA. They told me they selected a few applicants from full-time that they wanted for FEMBA. I'm excited it was a miracle.
