For those who got the admit calls, has the status on the admission page changed? Mine still says
Application Status: (File Under Review)


I think it is usually a day or two later. I was told admits will receive an email tomorrow with instructionsn how to proceed next

Been lurking and thought I should contribute. After giving up hope, I got the call today at 5:15pm PST. I was an R2 WL.

I wouldn't. She said that she was going to in until 530. It didn't sound like I was the last one on the list either. For her voice it sounded like a long day of calling people.

Well it's definitely not alphabetical because my last name starts with A. And from a credentials perspective my gmat was low relatively speaking with a high IR, gpa a bit below average, but strong professional, great LORs, and I think a great interview. It really isn't only a numbers game with them. They really do look holistically. If you feel like you have a strong app, hang tight.

No, I was actually interviewed by Linda, and received a call from her informing me about the decision.

Congratulations to those who received phone calls today. And all the very best for everyone waiting.

Hi everyone, I need opinions! I got accepted into Haas EWMBA and UCLA full-time. I have not received financial aid for either program, although I may be able to get my MBA paid for by the company I work for if I pursue the Haas EWMBA route.

Which MBA program is better between the two..Haas part time or UCLA full-time? It seems like Haas part-time does not have the prestige as the full time program, which has me worried. I also don't know if it is worth going to a full-time program and taking out large amounts of loans.

Any opinions?

My opinion - I would try not to focus too much on "prestige," especially between different programs within the same school. It's the same degree at the end of the day. You got accepted to two quality programs. Think about what your goals are, and your reasons for investing time and energy into an MBA. Then look at the two programs objectively. Forget the brand (prestige) that each one has built for itself and look at the program's offerings. Do the classes sound interesting to you? Do you have good opportunities to network with classmates, upperclassmen, professors, and business leaders? How about electives? Do they excite you? How about the people you have met so far? Do you imagine yourself spending late nights creating presentations with them? What does their career service offering look like? Do they connect you with internship opportunities? Do they have extracurricular clubs and activities that you might be interested in joining? How about side projects that can help you gain additional experience? How much is this going to cost you personally? $125K in loans is a mortgage in many states. How does your financial situation today align with that reality? How do you expect it to change after MBA?

Ask yourself these questions and many more. Maybe create a model where you weight each answer as you see fit. Then, if after you've answered all of those important questions, both schools are still tied, then include soft things like brand, prestige, etc in the equation.

I was able to login with new admits option chosen. I haven't heard anything from my interviewer so far. Online status still shows "File under review".
