Congratulations.

Are you referring to CMU PT or FT?

If you want to live in California or West Coast, then I would think UCLA would have far greater advantage in terms of networking as most UCLA Anderson graduates stay in the West Coast. Conversely, if you want to be in the Pittsburgh area, then I would say CMU.

I had to choose between a top 15 FT MBA in the East Cost vs UCLA FEMBA. I had dig deep down to understand my own priorities in life and staying and living in LA came close to the top. Plus, going to a PT made more sense for me financially.

Thanks for the reply. I got admit for Part time in Pittsburgh.. After living in Bay Area for 1.5 years i knw California is the place to be...but as far as my future is concerned, location doesnt matter if the course is good.

Did you apply to Tepper? I would have never thought had i not followed the application process more closely. While UCLA is a very good brand for part time MBA and one of the top for entrepreneurship, I didnt find the adcom communication that effective and the application process was not student friendly. Till last week I didnt even knew that there was a 3rd round that was introduced. Though I had applied in R2, but I would have loved to hear the change in the process. At the same time, Tepper, communicated everything at regular intervals and also have a very good marketing in terms of creating a brand value.

I know that these things wont matter much, so I am looking for some advise on which of these would offer me a better future for me and my goals?

Thanks,

As PT programs go, I think UCLA is the way to go. Although I might be bias looking at my name but hear me out. UCLA has been like top PT program last couple of years. Also with PT programs, you want a program that allows you to recruit with the FT program (which if you saw the protect at booth this year, not all schools do). I think CMU is limited since the FT program isn't concidered a elite program and Pittsburg is pretty limited with tons of great programs in the northeast.

Side Note, go look at BW to see the on going debating if PT people should be able to recruit with Full time people.

If you want to compare the two programs (UCLA FEMBA vs CMU PT) based on merit and repuation, then I think most publications and rankings would rank UCLA FEMBA ahead.

I think location matters especially for PT programs because you would need to hold down a job. Do you really want to move to Pittsburgh from SF and live there for 3 years while working and attending school? Also finding a new job is rarely easy these days.

Thanks! I think even I am more inclined towards UCLA :). Moreover, moving from bay area to LA seems less painful than moving to Pittsburg :D

btw...are you in LA or u also gonna relocate?

I live in LA. As you might be aware, the LA economy is very different from SF. LA isn't nearly as high-tech oriented.

Good luck with your decision.

If you're a R1 applicant that hasn't heard ANYTHING yet, i would definitely contact the Admissions Office at this point.

Even if you have received some response, I don't think it hurts to let them know you're still jonesing for an admit... remember, the Squeaky Wheel :)

I am actually R2 applicant, my decisions deadline is tomorrow. I was wondering if they respond to all applicants on the deadline date and wanted to know if all R1 applicants got their decisions.

I believe all R1 applicants received their decision (admit, ding, WL) on or before the R1 decision date.

I imagine the same would happen to R2 on June 9th.

The WL process probably would take longer than June 9th to settle since they need to decide on all the waitlisters based on the yield (admits who decide to matriculate) of R1 and R2.
