Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Ignore my ignorance, I am kind of overwhelmed with all the posting in this forum. Seems like everybody trying for 2008 FEMBA has already finished GMAT/application etc. I am also planning for 2008 Fall FEMBA and planning to take GMAT by Dec 1st week so that I can get everything before R2. Is it too late or any suggestions?
Shamelessly copying River's post from Chicago GSB thread
Well since the deadline is almost over for R1, time for a Roll call of who applied. Hopefully we can get one going like in the wharton thread, then we can update it as needed with interviews and hopefully lots of admits. Argh the thought of interviews sucks, its going to be horrible waiting once you know someone else got an interview.
Just copy and paste this list into your post and add your name at the bottom, that way we dont have to search through to find everyone.
I will wait and call tomorrow morning to find out. Apparently the admissions desk told me that they will go through individual files and match documents and try to find if anything is missing. It will take them a week-2 weeks to reflect change in status
Wow, do we really only have THREE R1 applicants for UCLA??? Where do their 3200 applications a year come from then?

Called up UCLA. I love the response. This is my conversation transcript
Me: I am calling to find out why my application is on hold. I have sent out an email and I have received no reply.
UCLA: Please hold
I am kept on hold for 10 minutes, transferred to a technical agent, kept on hold again and then the fun begins
Me: Why is my application on hold?
ucla: Ummmm... we don't know. let me look into your account. Actually let me open it up. What is your last name (WTF were you guys doing for the last twenty minutes?)
I hear voices in the background.. lots of key typing
ucla: ohhh..ummm.. ohhh.. ohh yes I got it. Everything is complete except for your TOEFL scores.
Me: I completed 4 years of grad studies in USA. I do not need to give TOEFL. I already wrote that in my application.
ucla: Correct. Yes, you do not need to submit TOEFL.
me: then why is my application on hold?
ucla: ohh wait... your application is complete and has been submitted for review...(this happens exactly in 2 seconds while the conversation continues)
Me:..ummm, are you sure? Shouldnt I be getting an email that says my application status has changed? Are you positive that my application is under review?
ucla: Yes.. (an emphatic Yes in my opinion). Your application is complete.
Me: good to know. (I am still clueless how my application changed status so suddenly). Its comforting to know that it moved from on hold to under review so soon. Thank you very much.
I know UCLA is a wonderful school but their admissions office procedures take the cake in ineptness.
I still havent received any email that shows my application is complete. Heck! I cant even see my application status on their web-page. That was why I had called them up in the first place itself!!!!
Final decisions are in: Berkeley: Denied with interview Tepper: Waitlisted with interview Rotman: Admitted with scholarship (withdrawn) Random French School: Admitted to MSc in Management with scholarship (...
