It depends on when they actually received it.

Mine was delivered on 2nd November, but it has not been updated yet on the portal. They said they would update the portal status 7-10 days after receiving it. So I won't get panicked yet.

Mine got delivered on 30th.. But still not updated. On contacting, this is what they said

"Thanks for your email. Please grant us additional time to process your documents if it has arrived in our office. If you check your application status, it should be reflected by early next week."

So nothing much to worry about.

FROM From UCLA Students' blog: Introduction: Chigozie Muoto
Hi, my name is Chigozie Muoto and I’m in the UCLA Anderson Class of 2017. I’m so excited to be writing this post to introduce myself to you because I believe there’s so much we can learn from sharing our experiences. I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria and attended the University of Lagos for undergrad. Shortly after my undergrad, I moved to Connecticut and attended the University of Connecticut for graduate school. Below are some more facts about me. 

                                                                                                                  Image

Undergraduate and Graduate Major: Materials Science & Engineering.

Pre-MBA Jobs: I worked at Intel for about four and half years as a technology development process engineer right after obtaining a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering. My passion for being involved in developing the technology that is directly impacting and changing people’s lives drew me to Intel and I really enjoyed working there. I also worked briefly in Nigeria as a network engineer before I moved to the US. I configured and maintained the computer networks of various agencies such as the Central Bank of Nigeria and the University of Abuja. This was my first job right after college and I felt so privileged to be given such responsibilities. I learned so much at this job.

Post-MBA Career Goals: I would like to participate in a post-MBA rotational leadership program in a high tech company to gain a broad overview of the business. Intel has one of such programs and I will be applying there both for a summer internship and full-time position. After the rotational program, I would like to go into a business development role. I want to help lead a high tech company not only to extend its growth in the developed market, but also to expand its business into emerging and frontier markets such as Africa. I have a passion to grow businesses and create development opportunities in Africa. My long-term goal is to launch a leadership/innovation academy in Nigeria and provide educational opportunities, sponsorships, mentorships, and leadership to young people.

What I’m most excited about: Meeting my classmates, hearing their stories, learning from their experiences, and building strong relationships. Anderson encourages collaboration among peers and it’s really exciting to be a part of a community where the general underlying mentality is “how can we both win”. Also, because Anderson promotes student-driven activities, I’m excited about sharpening my leadership skills in an environment where tolerance and understanding are highly valued.

Why Anderson?: Having a career focus in high tech and a long-term goal to drive economic growth in Africa, I sought for a business school that would create the enabling environment to equip me to pursue my passion. The first thing that attracted me to Anderson was its tagline, 'think in the next' and its defining principles; share success, think fearlessly, and drive change. As I researched more information about Anderson and connected with current students, I understood more about Anderson’s distinctive features and realized it’s the perfect choice for me. UCLA Anderson stood out for a number of reasons: strong focus on entrepreneurship and innovation (innovative classes on venture formation and growth, Easton Technology Management Center, Price Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation), real social venture initiatives (The NetImpact club, Challenge for Charity, and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Disable Veterans), collaboration among peers (there are vast opportunities to learn from your classmates both in class activities - case study, team projects - and in extracurricular activities), diversity (wide mix of students across every spectrum - pre- and post-MBA careers, age, racial background, country of origin, and gender). Also, Anderson sends an unprecedented number of MBAs to the tech industry through the help of an amazing career management team – Parker Career Management Center. All these and more made Anderson my #1 choice.

I’m really excited to be a part of this community and I look forward to sharing more of my Anderson experiences with you as they unfold. Stay tuned!

Hey supreya,

Did you check the exact time what IST time corresponds to the PDT time you selected. There has been a DST change on November 1st. So everything is delayed by an hour in the IST time.

Did not know this. Had to wait for an hour. I googled "Current time in LA" and when it came an hour later I thought I had botched up before.

Anyway the interview was very casual.

1. Take me thorough your resume.
2. One achievement from the Resume.
3. Why MBA?
4. Why UCLA?
5. LT and ST goals.
6. Example of convincing others
7. Example of team work.
8. Any Questions.

Just had my interviews. As others have said, it was largely conversational, especially towards the end when you get to ask questions.

1) Walk me through your resume
2) Why MBA?
3) When you enter a new team to be a teammate/leader, how do you go about it? Give example
4) If your manager strongly opposes you and things aren't going your way, what do you do? Give example
5) If there is one selling point that you have and can differentiate you from other, use that to sell yourself in 2 mins and present a strong case to the adcom.
6) If you have one weakness that gives a chance to the adcom to reject you, what is it and what have you done to mitigate it?
7) Any questions

Lasted about 30 mins.

Hi PTK:

Thanks for being a source of support! I applied at the end of Sept and have not received an interview yet, so naturally I am a bit nervous.

Do you remember what month you received your invitation, and approx. when it took place?

I thought I had read somewhere that the interviews would basically be finished by mid-Nov for UCLA, but I don't know if that is necessarily true.

Many thanks for your assistance, and for checking in with all of us applicants.

Questions:
Tell me briefly about your resume and why did you get to think about business school.
Specific things you want to get from the Mba and why Anderson.
Short and long term goals
A time when you convinced a group of people.
Your strenght when working in a team and an example.
Any questions for me?

Good luck everyone!

From my observation and the last update email from the admission team, the last majority of invites are going to take place this week, so I believe that if dont get invited after this week then we should prepare for the worst and just move on, no point on getting anxious on something out of our control, would just stress you out bro :oops:

There are around 30-35 skype slots left and similar number of on-campus slots left as well. Sit tight till the end of the week.


Thanks a lot etch1516 for the info. Some respite for torrid souls like us! :)

HI All,

I had my interview on campus a few weeks ago and wanted to share -

My questions were exactly like what Intraban got - pretty standard with examples of team work and convincing someone to do something.

My interviewer was friendly and casual, though he and I had two very different backgrounds. I thought I rambled a bit :/... hope that wasn't a deal breaker. He asked me questions for 15 min. and I asked him questions for 15 min. Though I had some more questions.

It was pleasant overall. I did email him about a follow up question, and he never got back to me so I hope that's not a bad sign.

To those still waiting, good luck!
