Yeah I think you should clarify this to the ad com, sending an email wont hurt , but from my experience, some ad com do send email for clarifications to us if they feel that it is necessary.

Hey btw relax bro, I like to think that us Indonesians are deep in the application pool and the adcom just has not started sending to our region yet ( at least that is what id like to assume). Keep in touch, man :lol:

FROM From UCLA Students' blog: Applying to Business School as a Couple
Recently we have received a lot of questions around applying to business school as a couple. For couples in this situation, there is a lot riding on the outcome of your applications. Daniela Castillo and David Valencia, members of the Class of 2016, were in this situation not too long ago. Here is their story:

Our journey applying to business school was special. Not only because we were international applicants, but also because we had a wedding to plan. We are second-year MBA students at UCLA Anderson, and we want to share with you our experience of applying to business school as an international couple.

Taking the GMAT

Business school has been part of our relationship since the beginning. We met at a GMAT student prep center back home in Bogotá, Colombia. The MBA was part of our respective career plans, and in each other we found a study partner who shared similar professional objectives.

Image

Anyone thinking about an MBA has to face the challenging reality of taking the GMAT. Our strategy was to study at least one hour each day after work. We say “at least” because sometimes we studied for way more than one hour. It is not always easy to say “no” to other activities, especially social gatherings, parties, dinners, and the like. But we put our MBA application goal before anything else. Actually, studying for the GMAT became a way to spend a lot of time together and we learned very much about each other.

Once we had the scores we aimed for, we had thorough conversations about where we really wanted to go for business school. We spoke about rankings, career interests and classes, we reached out to alumni, and we even thought about weather as a factor that would affect our two-year experience.

Our recommendation to couples is to talk about everything on your mind. Avoid later surprises by discussing what really matters to you and your partner. At this stage, you have to factor in everything that could help you make a decision about where to go. In our case it was not easy, we each had different career priorities; but we ended up applying to three business schools that aligned with our interests, and UCLA Anderson was one of them.

The Application Essay

When writing your essays, work individually. Bring to life your personal stories, and make sure you sound authentic and that the message comes across clearly. Your story needs to make sense and doesn’t have to be aligned with what your significant other is writing. Obviously, you can help each other review your essays, but we did that at a later stage, when we thought our essays were almost ready and only needed editing. We think the most important thing when telling your story to admissions is to answer questions such as, why do you want an MBA, why now? How do your career objectives align with your past professional experience? It really matters to admissions that you have the potential to find the job you’re looking for after graduation.

The Interview

To prepare for the interviews, we practiced together and did many mock interviews. We found it very important to travel to campus and meet our interviewers at Anderson. We believe for international students, establishing a rapport in person is easier than on the phone or video call.

We did tell the universities that we applied to that we were a couple and we wanted to go together. It worked well for us; the three universities that we applied to accepted us both.

This couple is happily halfway through our MBA experience. The people we have met, the professional growth, and the support we have had from each other to continue pursuing our dreams have made the decision to come to UCLA Anderson one of the best we have ever made. We could not be prouder of or happier about our achievements, and we are looking forward to our new lives after graduation. This is definitely a life-changing experience.

Hello,

I had my interview on skype earlier this week with a second year student.
Overall it was a very friendly interview and has cemented my understanding of the kind of student community at Anderson!
Some of the questions asked were: Why MBA, why now, walk me through your resume, which clubs would you want to be involved in at Anderson, give an example of where you took the initiative and solved a problem (professional), example of inter-personal skills, post MBA goals etc.
Best of luck to everyone prepping for the interview! Hope this helps.

Cheers! :)

Received Invite. Indian Candidate. Today morning at 6 am.

I see they are asking for hard copies of transcript and degree. Is there any deadline for sending them. I was hoping to send them after receiving the final acceptance, so that I can make the journey to my school once.

Yea true, you need to send the hard copies of transcripts to get decisions in R1. I think I missed indraban 's question.

My questions were
1. Can I schedule my interview before sending in the hard copy of the transcripts?
2. Will my admission process be ​affected/delayed if Anderson receives my transcripts a day or two after my interview?

I did my interview before I sent in the transcript..I think the two are separate things; interview is interview, transcript is only to validate the school you submitted, after which the AO can make the final decision. Good luck with the interview!

Hi potential new classmates :-D

I'm a first year at Anderson and followed this forum very closely when applying, but didn't post much. I'm recruiting for technology here at Anderson and am originally from the Midwest. PLEASE PM me with any questions you have about the school. I'd love to answer them as best I can at this point.

I've loved everything about this school so far. It's a great place if you're looking to recruit in the technology industry.

I had my interview with a second-year student, it lasted around 40 minutes:

The questions were quite traditional:

Walk me through your resume
Why MBA
Why UCLA
Why Now
Tell me a story you convinced somebody
Anything you want to ask?

Overall, I felt that interview went quite well! But we'll see.

Does anyone know what the process is for reapplicants? I applied in Round 2 last year and I was interviewed as well. Unfortunately though, I was waitlisted in Round 2 and then again in Round 3. l only got off the waitlist in August (the waiting wasn't fun at all as you can imagine). In any case, I applied again in Round 1 this year and I realized that I'm not sure how the whole interview thing works for reapplicants. Does Anderson re-interview reapplicants?
