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

I really hope I don't get waitlisted on UCLA while admitted to USC... I've heard people needed to pay USC's deposit by date x and then got admitted to UCLA on date x+1.


Last year I got admitted to UCLA on the day my USC deposit was due. To be honest though I have heard that USC's deadline is not really enforced.

It looks like last year people were accepted right up until the end. I would love to know by the 21st but i got the impression that decisions would be made up until that date (as the deadline date also lies on a Friday).


Yeah, I wouldn't give up until the very last day... but I assume chances are diminished if you don't hear by this Friday.

I've been on the waitlist since December 12th, so I'm not going to give up until 11:59pm June 28th... Haha.

Anyone here still waiting on a decision from UCLA that has a USC deposit deadline today?


Yes, I am in the same boat that you are in. I was really hoping for a decision today but I will put my deposit down at USC just in case as I don't want to end up out of options. Here is a question that I wonder if someone can answer - if I put a deposit down at USC and end up getting accepted at UCLA afterwards, would that lost deposit be considered a tax-deductible education expense?


I paid the deposit to USC also for the exact same reasons.

USC should issue you a 1098-T at the end of the year showing tuition paid. You should be able to deduct is as an education expense (i.e. lifetime learning credit, etc.) even if they don't issue it to you.

No, the applications used to say "submitted". They will now say "complete" or "incomplete". All it means is that they've received everything that is required in an application or not (i.e. Transcripts, 2 Letters of Rec). .

So, assuming that they just reviewed for completeness, they really only have just over two weeks to look over the round one applications since this week is a short week and decisions are due by December 12. Again, I read that people got admissions calls before the deadlines last year which would shorten the two weeks to less time.

I'm ready for this process to be over with so that I can move on with my life, whatever the next step may be.

My status has been "complete" for some time now also so when I got the email I thought that it was a little strange. Can't wait to hear back from them though about the actual decision....I don't like waiting...

Hi,
I'm a Bay Area applicant.

Anderson, in it's app, asks this question - "What other UC grad schools have you applied to?"

Would answering "Haas" affect my application?

I'd assume they'd be not very enthusiastic to offer admission to someone who's from the Bay Area and applied to Haas because if the candidate is offered an admission at Haas and accepts it, that would affect the statistics at Anderson slightly negatively (offered admission but not accepted)

Thanks!


I'm not sure if it will affect your application. I'm sure the admissions office would tell you that it won't; but what they do behind closed doors is another story.

If you don't put that you applied to Haas and they find out, then what will they do? They have the right to give you the boot but would they?

If you put on your app that you applied to Haas then you will have a clear conscience and you will not have to worry if UCLA finds out about your 'omission'.

Totally agree with racer150. What the adcom does with this information is anyone's guess, but I personally wouldn't want to find out what happens if they catch an 'omission'.

For what it's worth I am in a similar situation, i.e. applying from the Bay Area and checking off that I applied to Haas on my application. D-day is in less than two weeks so I'll let you know what happens...

I called them too , and you are correct racer , they do not have anything till January 2013.

Does anyone know what's the acceptance rate for the Anderson FEMBA wait list ?


http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/rankings/part_time_mba_profiles/ucla.html

Don't know how old that is... but I don't imagine that it changes much. Looks like 25% of 104 waitlisted... Still better than a ding.
