Honestly I don't think almost anyone outside of the US and maybe Canada has interviewed for UCLA. Just calm down. Be positive.

Thanks for sharing this one!

I've been losing hope with every passing day approaching mid-December, but it sounds like there will be more invites in January.

Thank you, Mr.Potter. It would have been nice to receive an update email from Admissions, especially since the original one specifically stated mid-December.

They're probably taking stock of the increased interest this year, now that they are not making applicants do those videos/sound recordings!

I think that is one of the main reasons for increased volume of apps. I know personally that doing a video was a major roadblock. Novel idea, but puts people who don't have good equipment and editing skills at a major disadvantage.

Whoa. When did the app require a video submission? Last year? What'd people have to do?

Any Latin candidate has received an interview invitation?

With no word from GSB or Haas, should make this decision easier. Anyone know if UCLA gives decisions before the end of January decision date?

yes when I talked to admissions during my interview, they said they would be releasing a batch of decisions before the holidays (only positives) and then the rest of the acceptances and the rejections would come on the january date.


It would be nice to hear a positive result for the holidays!

Finding out positive news before the holidays would be amazing! For people that have interviewed... has that been reflected in your application status? Mine still says...

"We reviewed your application with interest and would like to learn more with a personal interview. Please watch your email for our updates."

Trying to suppress my paranoia, but to no avail.

Your MBA application is being reviewed by the admissions committee and a decision will be released by the publish date for your round.

Based on last year's data, it appears that Anderson interviewed approx. 44% of all candidates and ultimately accepted approx. 29% of all candidates, which would indicated that about 2 out of every 3 interview invites got admitted last year. That being said, the info session I went to mentioned that the entering class was too big, and they were looking to reduce the size this year. That coupled with the increase in applicants will most likely reduce the % of accepted candidates. Whether they adjust the % of interviewed candidates remains to be seen. My guess is the percentage of interviewed candidates accepted will most likely be in the 50-60% range.

In terms of your interview, I wouldn't worry too much about it. The Anderson website even mentions that the interviews generally just reiterate what's already in your application. As long as you didn't stray from your story, and came across as mature and genuine, you should have a good shot! Let us know how you end up and best of luck!

Just logged into my application. It still says "Your MBA application is being reviewed by our admissions committee and we will contact you if we have any questions."

The MBA Blog on the Anderson website says that the interview invites are going to be rolling out till mid-jan so am not too worried. Plus no international applicant interviewing outside the US seems to have received any interview invites.

Did anyone just get the email that was just sent out?? There is a bullet point on the email that says:

"Our largest-ever group of December admits will be announced before the holidays to spread good cheer -- then more admissions and interviews will come after our school's winter-break closure Dec. 22 to Jan. 2"

Does that mean that people who already interviewed will be notified by Dec 22??

Just saw the email. I just think this means most but not all of the admit notices will be sent out before the holidays. I also think this means that there may not be any new interview invitations until the new year.
