Hello Everyone,

I applied to both the USC MBA.PM and UCLA FEMBA programs (round 2, 2011). Had an interview at UCLA last week, and it went quite well. The interviewer was pretty cool. He made me want to attend UCLA even more.

Any round 2 applicants out there just waiting for the decision dates for either the USC MBA.PM or UCLA FEMBA program? The decision dates are not coming fast enough!! Right? The anticipation is quite... interesting. Hahaha :-)

Hi acao,

I know the wait is not fun, but hang in there. Here's a message from Dylan Stafford at UCLA, "If you have colleagues who didn’t hear today, please reassure them that the reading order is randomized and that we will get to their application as soon as possible."

Figured I'd just elaborate on my resume/work history, re-iterate some essay material for consistency, and include the all important why question. Does all this sound about right or is it to bland/boring? Thanks in advance.


This is the way I went.

The instructions say treat the video like an in person interview so I scrapped a few of my more creative ideas and went with a straight shot. Went through my background and why I was a good fit for USC. Right or wrong who knows but 4 minutes is not that long...Its a difficult format but I think if you sound confident and show some personality it can't hurt.

Best of luck.

Powered By Jay, USC.PM had 4 rounds. The website removed the prior rounds (rounds 1 & 2) after the deadlines had past and renamed the later rounds (3 & 4) to round 1 & round 2... very confusing, I know, but I hope it helps explain your question.

Yep, I'm right there with you. Did you submit the video for USC? If so, what did you do? Which program do you prefer - USC or UCLA?

Hi LaChloe :-)

Cool. I'm not alone anymore. Hahaha. Yes, I did submit a video to USC. I just kept it simple. Talked a little about my backgrounds, passions and motivations. That's it. Which program do I prefer? For what I'm trying to accomplish, either one will do.

What about you? Did you submit a video to USC? How was your interview at UCLA? School preference?

For the video I just did a four minute version of 'walk me through your resume' and then finished it off with 'why USC'. All in one take. Probably had to re-do 10 different times to get it. Oh, and my video was 5 seconds over 4 minutes - hoping that's not an issue.

Interview at UCLA went pretty well. I would have answered 'what's your weakness' question differently if I could re-do it. I said my stubborness was my weakness which somehow led me down this path of not making it seem like I would take other people's perspectives into consideration. Which is totally not me! I tried to back my way out of it, but I don't think it came off too well. We'll see.

Really wondering when we'll hear back from either program. I'm leaning more towards UCLA, but I'd like to evaluate all options when I get them (assuming I end up with options). :)

I think that your video should be fine. In regards to the UCLA interview, I think that most, if not all, of us are probably wishing that we could have said and/or done something differently during the interview :)

I really hope that we hear back from the schools long before the R2 decision dates, which are April 30th (USC) and May 4th (UCLA).

Hi acao :)

Just curious, unlike other schools, I thought that the UCI FEMBA AdCom gets back to the applicants in around two weeks or so.

I'm trying to do the same, as well. Keeping myself busy, so I don't think about the decision dates.

My UCLA's online application status changed to "Your application is complete for committee review and will have a decision released by the publish date for your round." My USC MBA.PM online status remains the same.

Has anyone else status changed?

Yeah, I had an interview that day, too. My interview was pleasant. However, I concur that the interviews are difficult to read :)

Hello all. I am r 2 femba; My status is at "Your application is complete for committee review" too.

I understand the decisions will be out by the end of this month. Acceptances should start going out before that. Anyone with different information?
