Is anyone planning to do the pre-req? I noticed it takes 3-6 months to get that done so i am not sure if we should do it now or wait till summer? What else are you guys thinking of doing?


I am also interested to know how many have been waitlisted though i don't think we will ever know that..haha


I dont plan to take the pre-req. It takes one month of studying is what i heard.

Do you know if they will allow you to take the pre-qual exam prior to admission?

I felt the same. I didnt have a single question that I didnt feel prepared for. Do we really have to wait until 03/29 to find out?

RG, how did it go? I had mine a little while back. Overall, I thought it went well. I was a little nervous and felt like the 30 mins flew by.


I felt exactly the same. I didn't think my answers were uber long or anything, but it certainly didn't feel like 30 mins. The interviewer explained that they only have 30 mins to interview and then 30 mins to write it up, so they're on a pretty tight schedule.

It was a prety casual coversation...no surprising questions.

How does the prereq stuff work? I noticed on the site that they have a cut-off for the math prereq and a higher Quant score is considered. Is a 48 high enough? I dont want to spend the summer taking a math class if possible. It seems that everyone has to do stats...

I think everyone has to do the stat and math is waived based on a Q cut-off (48 should be enough but I don't know what the adcom has set for this yr).. I don't mind taking any number of courses this summer.. All I want is an admit!!! :lol:

Is anyone of you applying to the FEMBA UCLA program too? If you are waitlisted by Haas and accepted at FEMBA, would you lose sleep over Haas? Thank you.

Assuming commute to both are the same, i wouldnt lose any sleep over Haas. Recently heard UCLA's program got ranked #1. Again also depends on your concentration.

I agree. Little to choose between the two. Infact Anderson seems to be doing a better job of getting its name out there and organizing various events for its students. Not sure about rankings/concentration ..

I didn't apply to UCLA but I wouldn't "lose sleep" over being WL'd by Haas...both are great programs...

Not sure bro. The earliest might be 3/28 if its an admit. I stared at my phone full 2 weeks before R1 deadline to get a call from that 510 number which never came. :/

Any idea how difficult the UCLA Round 3 is? I am hoping for the Haas admit, but I guess the FEMBA could be a last minute effort if Haas doesn't come through. I think the FEMBA deadline is in April, so the timing at least works out.

Finished my interview today. No surprise questions as well. Just some regular questions focused on resume. (Why MBA, Why Haas, leadership stories, etc...).

From what I've heard about the FEMBA program at the Open House is that Round 3 is no more challenging than any other round. It is not comparable to the full time programs. This advice came directly from the admissions director who was advising that you wait for the right round when you have the BEST application that YOU can put together. Also, the incoming class size for this year's FEMBA class has not yet been determined. They are deciding between 280 and 350 (4 classes of 70 students, or 5 classes of 70 students). So if they get enough "qualified applicants" they will potentially increase the class size.

Not sure where that stands at this point, but this was what I heard 2 months ago.

I would encourage anyone looking at Haas to also take a look at Anderson. From what I've seen, heard (from current students I work with), and been a part of... this is an awesome program!

Hey everybody,

Great discussion here. I'm prepping for my interview next week. I've found past questions posted on ClearAdmit but havent found too many other resources. Anybody know of other sites or have any other tips for how to prepare?

Thanks in advance for your help.
