I am the only one here who is contemplating about turning down my ucla admit and going to hkust..its not a very bright idea..but the alumni i interviewed with told me that if i wanted to work in asia post mba.. its better to study in asia as its getting more difficult to move from the us immediately after completing the mba and finding a job in asia...
my goal is to work in asia..

any thoughts on this matter - opinions are most welcome and sorry for hijacking the thread..

ps - i have only 12 more hours to make a final decision as i have to pay the deposit for hkust tomorrow.


Aviroop, just my 2 cents- from your profile, I guess that you are in the consulting industry.
I don't know much about other places in Asia, but Tokyo certainly offers generous opportunities in your industry provided you have an US MBA.

I was just obsessively reading last year's thread and came across this notion that you receive a status change from "Your MBA application is being reviewed by our admissions committee and we will contact you if we have any questions." to Your MBA application is being reviewed by our admissions committee and you will receive your decision on the decision date." when you either receive an invite for interview or a ding. This was in a sense a tip-off from the ad com that informed people well before they were dinged of their fate. In other words, if your status changed and you didnt get an invite within 48hrs, you were most likely dinged.

Did this happen to round one applicants this year or was this fixed?


i'm R1 and i got dinged w/o interview and my online app status did go from "...will contact you if we have any questions" to "...will receive decision by decision date". not sure how much i read into that. but just fyi.

For all round 2 applicants still waiting for an interview invite, this is what I got from the admissions office:

"As we had many more round 2 applicants than in recent years, we anticipate sending out interview invitations quite possibly up to just prior to the decision release deadline. We realize this is a very anxious time for applicants and appreciate your patience as we give each application the thoughtful consideration it deserves. I hope you receive the outcome you desire!"


Wow, that restores a little of my quickly fading hope. Thanks! Out of curiosity, where did you read that?


I sent a mail to the admissions office, and that was their reply.

Question about school choices. I got in both UCLA and Duke. Want to go into business consulting in the west coast in the future. Any suggestions?


Duke is ranked higher but if you want to work on the West Coast, it's hard not to think UCLA will give you the better opportunity and network.



I agree. Duke is ranked a little higher, but the program doesnt have as huge a network as maybe a top 5, so the slight ranking advantage definitely doesn't offset te huge benefit that UCLA will give you on the west coast. Plus, all the same mid to large companies recruit from all of the top 20 schools anyway, so you might as well be in the optimal location and fit.

Anyone here received interview invitations in the last 2-3 days? Just hoping for a long shot last minute interview call.


I doubt that UCLA Anderson will be sending interview invites these days.

Has anyone got admitted this week?


Got an interview invite May 29 if that helps. :) They said they would update my application status no later than June 6.

Good luck, everyone.
