The first message means a pre-cursor to an interview, and the second means they've decided to ding you already.

Either that or the first message means they've decided to ding you, and the second is a precursor to an interview.

Either that, or they both mean we're under review.

I'm just going to check out and wait. Everything else at this stage is pure speculation and conjecture. It's like reading too much into a text message when you're chasing down a certain love interest.

Hi all. Had my interview on Monday. It went well, wasn't too stressful. I am from the Bay Area, did it locally up here. I was matched with someone who went to UCLA undergrad, worked for 5 years and then went back to UCLA, an alum from class of 99 Anderson. That matches my pace, but none of our past and future careers matched up. She was very nice, and asked very directed questions to school fit it seemed. What my career goals are, what I have achieved, how I have worked, and what I hope to gain from the MBA schools I am applying for. Failure and Accomplishment question. It ended up being an hour and a half just chatting about the school and what it has to offer. I never got the impression that the interview was the key to me getting in or getting rejected.

My status on the site is now:

" Submission Status: Submitted
Submitted Date: 10/26/2011 2:52:00 AM EST
We reviewed your application with interest and would like to learn more with a personal interview. Please watch your email for our updates."

It probably won't change until they process the interview report from the Alum is my guess. Then I assume I will have to wait until Jan 26 to learn anything about my status. Good luck everyone!

My dad used to guest lecture every year for one of Anderson's classes and got to know a guy who is now an associate dean (I think that's his title) of the business school. They ran into each other a while back and got talking about the admissions proces (I just found this out today). The guy said that they don't weight the interviews too heavily because a lot of it comes down to who interviews you, so it's hard to compare one interview to another. When my dad asked why they even go through the interview process then, the guy said "because applicants to top schools expect us to do interviews." So if you have an interview coming up, don't stress too much. Sure if you totally blow it it will negatively impact your candidacy, but beyond that it won't make much of a difference.

Thanks, ls!

Stats: 700/3.6/northeast area/accounting... I am plain vanilla on paper, but I do have some good community leadership. I had pretty much given up hope after a couple rejects (even went on a job interview today I was so discouraged, haha), so I'm rejuvinated with the positive news.

I know how much it sucks to be waiting. I sincerely hope the best for all of you! Good luck!

Got an invite today as well around 8:30PM EST. Fairly excited. I am also an non URM male with a 670 GMAT and 3.2X GPA (though I have strong entrepreneurship/community service experience).

In the email they say that interviewing on campus or off campus is evaluated equally. Do you think this is true as I have not reached out to any alums or done any research beyond the website? Any other east coasters venturing out to CA?

Good luck to everyone applying! This is real stressful process and I have been fairly down about not getting a Darden interview and getting dinged from Booth.. receiving that UCLA invite email when out to happy hour with co-workers was an unexpected surprise.

Status hasn't changed online after getting the interview invite. Still reads: "Your MBA application is being reviewed by our admissions committee and we will contact you if we have any questions."

Hey mray - Congrats on the interview! I'm from the northeast and I am making the trek to cali next weekend for an on-campus interview. I had an off-campus interview for Kellogg, and it was not as easy as the on-campus interviews other candidates had posted. While I believe adcom will evaluate each interview equally, you just don't know what you are going to get with an alum interviewer. Off-campus interviews also tend to be longer, where on-campus interviews are a hard 30 minutes, which means less opportunity to screw up.

So, I'd recommend on-campus if you can help it, as it is more predictable. I also got to think that making the trek across country is going to show dedication in the back of their minds? That's just my two cents, but do what you feel is right. Good luck!

Congrats on your interview, Mray! I agree with Jingle. If you can make the trip, you definitely should. I am from the Northeast and visited the school over the summer. It's really beautiful.
