It did not show that I had checked the CPA box. Don't think it is as important as the GMAT score. I sent my official GMAT score report to UCLA (I believe they required it) so I would not be too worried. Plus, the application won't let you submit if the score is missing.

I am leaning towards believing that the application is having rendering issues when the information is put into the .pdf form.


Yeah I had similar issues. I think if everything is in the actual application they will see it one way or another....at least I hope!

To current students/ alumni,

I've exceeded word limit in one of the essays by 37 words (5%). Is that okay?


It's more of a guideline than a hard set rule.

You certainly do not want to go over by a lot but 37 words should be okay.

I went over by a bit last year.

I submitted but when I did the PDF rendering didn't happen at all. I am going to write to the school about this so that they are aware at least. Hoping everything reaches them.

I haven't sent the mail yet. I couldn't convert my application to PDF at all forget not seeing something in the app. It just kept throwing an error. I contacted Tech Support and they said that it has to be done from the chools end. So I will send an e-mail to UCLA informing them of the problem.

I went over my application 5+ times just to make sure it was all there. But I still can't be sure. :(

I called the admissions office just to check that there wasn't something wrong with my online application. Apparently one's GMAT score is not included in the printed application proof. So, it looks like we're good to go!

Anyone know how soon they start sending out interview invitations?

For question 1 (what events or persons.....) How did you interpet "character"? I thought of it as personality traits but one of my friends noted that it could refer to moral character. What do you guys think?

The two aren't necessarily exclusive. But mostly it is open to interpretation of the candidate I guess.

I think moral character is a subset of personality traits. There are other personality traits too that you'd be proud to share too. I took my essay in the non-moral character direction - talked about some virtues that I demonstrate, and then talked about why those virtues are important in my personal/professional life.

Got the same email. It says by mid-Dec so I'm guessing we'll start hearing from them mid-late Nov onwards...

I know what you mean!
Everytime I get an email I immediately check to see if its Anderson.

Good (and bad) to know we're all in the same boat.
