I got an invitation as well. Does anyone know the statistics regarding whether you do it or not? Does doing the video significantly increase your chances? The only reason I ask is because I'm going to be extremely busy at work these next few weeks and would not want to half ass a video.

I haven't seen any stats on it. They say its optional so I imagine if you have a strong application then you probably don't need to worry about it. If you feel like you're on the bubble then its probably worth your time. I can't really see it hurting your chances, even if its just 4 minutes on a web cam.

Hi everyone. This is my first time posting on the forum. Applied last round to USC and just got an email invite for the video interview. Hopefully it will increase my chances...Has anyone seen stats on admittance rates for PM program with interview? Does the PM program do in-person interviews?

Got the call today from USC. Feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. For what it is worth submitted application on April 10 and had recommendations in within a couple weeks after. Video was submitted end of April.

Congratulations HW!!! which campus did you receive for year 1 and was it your requested choice?

Seems like a quick turnaround on their end. Applying after R3 deadline and getting a response 5 weeks later prior to R3 release date.

Congratulations to all the new admits!

Just got a chance to update: I sent in my video this Monday (R3 MBA.PM) and received a call from Marshall on Wednesday. Still pretty amazed by their turnaround time. Seems like the video can be one big accelerator for the final decision. I applied and received orange county campus.

Just withdrew my full-time application to UCLA. Have been on their waitlist for months. One of the most important question during the interview that I couldn't answer very well was that "Why do you want to go full time?". I think it all makes sense now. Also considered applying to FEMBA before June 1st. But decided not to since I want to concentrate on technology commercialization and am really impressed by one of my friends' Trojan spirit.

Hello All. So who's else is out there waiting for R3 UCLA FEMBA results? We have a little over a month of waiting to go.
I hope they add the 5th section (Mon/Wed) because:
a)it could potentially mean more seats available and/or lower teacher/student ratio and
b)Mon/Wed would work well for me.

Anyways, good luck everyone!

Just FYI in case anyone didn't see, UCLA extended the deadline an extra month for FEMBA. They are accepting applications until June 1st with GMAT until June 15th. I think this bodes very well for current R3 applicants and WLers that haven't heard back. UCLA must have seen a smaller than expected applicant pool and/or more withdrawn applications.

This also probably means they may delay notification for R3ers.

Really unfortunate on the delayed notification but how else would they do it? Rolling? I would imagine a lot of people are going to have had to made deposits elsewhere by the time they hear anything from FEMBA.

Good luck to everyone who has applications in.

The morning of the Rd 3 interviews Dylan (UCLA) made it seem like they would go through the applications as quickly as possible since the know many people are trying to figure out what to do with themselves....I imagine they are going to treat the round as rolling admissions. But I am just speculating...

This is the post SuperSaturday email I received on 5/10:

Hello ,

Thank you for attending the FEMBA Supersaturday Interview. Once your application is complete, it will be evaluated. Round Three Decisions will be released via e-mail, no later than June 22nd, 2011. To ensure that your application is complete, you can check the application status online through ApplyYourself.

We appreciate your interest in UCLA Anderson.

Best regards,

UCLA Fully Employed MBA Program


The application deadline was changed to June 1st before they sent out this email so hopefully this means June 22nd is still valid.

Its likely that they are trying to increase applicant pool because of the new 5th section.
I'm estimating each section has around 70 students because class of 2013 had around 280 students for 4 sections. If they try to maintain the same students per section, this year could be up to 350 students. If they are hoping to maintain the 40ish percent enrollment rate, then they need around 875 applicants, which is over 150 more than last year.

If they don't receive this boost in applicants they could either raise their enrollment rate (and statistically appear less selective), reduce section sizes (loss in $ maybe), or eliminate the tentative 5th section.

This is just my logic based on the info I've gathered. I could be wrong.

Hang tight everyone. I would highly doubt they'd keep people waiting until they've gone through all of the applications though. As an R1 FEMBA admit, they let us know in mid-December when the official notification was February. A friend of mine applied in R2 and he was also notified far before the decision date.

Think of it this way ... every program knows you have options. By notifying or delaying notification, it just lowers their yield % which doesn't go in their favor. I agree with PoweredByJay, I think the extended deadline is just to allow for more time for more qualified applicants should they open up another section or if there was a smaller applicant pool this year.

I just got the admit call from Marshall MBA.PM today! I applied the day before the R3 deadline. I chose not to do the video resume. Good luck to others still waiting.

Still not a peep from UCLA.

Just checked my USC.PM application status and was wait listed. Submitted my app for the LA campus and sent in my video last Monday. The letter says I can send in supplemental material but I'm not sure what that'd be at this point outside of upping my GMAT score.

Congrats abmyers!

When you say R3 deadline, do you mean May 1st? I'm confused because the USC MBA.PM website shows only Round 1 & 2.
