UCLA Anderson Response? [#permalink] New post 27 Oct 2006, 06:48
Though they have deadline dates, Anderson is actually rolling admissions (according to them at the info session at least)

As anyone heard a response yet? If so, when did you complete your application?

In the past, I've heard some say that they found out in as early as a week after their interview.

Thanks!

i was just about to ask if anyone had interviewed on campus yet. i have scheduled mine for next month.

did they ask any tricky questions? how long was it? did you do anything else while on campus (eg go to a class, take a tour, etc.)? if so, how was it? i just went to an information session and the staff seemed friendly.

The questions by themselves weren't tricky, it was just that there were a ton of follow up questions and no visual feedback. I read at accepted.com's website that some of the admissions directors at Anderson are notorious for being rude and probing..I hope that I did well and didn't blow it. I have a strong profile and good essays..waiting to hear some good news from Anderson !

guess it all depends on the interviewer.... [#permalink] New post 27 Oct 2006, 11:32
my on-campus interview was very informal and pleasant. i had an alumnus and it almost felt like i was talking to someone at a social gathering - very comfortable and no structure. just natural conversation back and forth. we had some similarities in our career backgrounds. after about 35 minutes, he looks down at his watch, and then starts fumbling through his papers and says, "oh man, we're out of time, and i was supposed to ask you all these questions...." and then just kind of shrugged it off since we had a good chat anyways. he seemed very passionate about anderson and his career as well.

i wouldnt' draw that conclusion at all. i've read on accept.com about anderson's interview reviews, and it seems like the responses vary so much. some interviewers are real tough, and some are very casual. depends a bit on luck of the draw i suppose.

you didn't happen to interview on "super saturday" by any chance?

No, I went on a regular business day. There were only two other candidates.

Just adding my 2 cents on interview experience...

I interviewed with Linda Baldwin about a month ago and must say overall experience was very pleasant.
Definately very very conversational. In fact, she did a big portion of the speaking.
The only questions asked were:
Why UCLA
what would your collegaues say in regards to your interpersonal style
what interpersonal skill is a weakness
anything else youd like to tell me (follwed by what do you do outside of work)

I have a background in running a family business involving textiles/manufacturing in China. I mentioned entrepreneuship/ globalization as the major draw of UCLA and seemed to hit it on the spot with this topic. We delved into how globalization is really changing the way business is done nowadays, and how it is really just in its beginning stages. She mentioned that people like myself were paving the way for future generations..something I took to be a good sign.

We spoke about the business competition that they run, we talked about the cultures of certain consulting companies (my post mba goal) and how I would not fit into such and such but that I might better fit this or that company.

In a way I feel lucky to have been interviewed by her ( not sure if there is a way to choose your interviewer). She was very warm and friendly and it was definaltey and exchange of info.

We spoke for about 40 minutes and she gave me the impression that had there not been a time limit, we couldve kept talking for another 30 minutes. There were several more detailed example that I wouldve liked to address.

The interview was held in her office, much better than the windowless interrogation style room that I expected.

Prior to entering the room, you are asked to fill out a card which asks for basic info: gpa, gmat, etc...
If you flip the card, you will find the basic questions that the interviewer is supposed to have answered after the interview.
She took notes during the interview and filled up the entire back of my resume.

Cant say much about other admin staff...but if you have the option, definately interview with her. If you have the chance to make an impression on either a 2nd year or the admissions director, I think the choice is clear.
