I don't recall getting a snail mail letter for acceptance. It was all electronic where you pay your deposit etc.

Many congratulations to those from R2 round who received the call confirming the admit and/or scholarship. Does UCLA offer scholarships which are merit based or they need to be both merit and need based? Hoping the people who received the 10k scholarship would reply.

Thanks.

The dean mentioned it was a merit scholarship when he called, but thats all the information I have. I didnt apply for it seperately. The official letter should come in this week, maybe that will have more info.
Personally, I think it could be a combination of several factors ( employer contribution, geographic location, along with merit and need).

I have not received a call. I know the decision date is March 25th and a lot of people received calls last Friday...

I logged onto my application website and saw no dings/WL...I wonder if we still have a chance or if you didn't get a call on Friday then you didn't get in?

Not quite sure..

hey everyone.. wanted to check in and see what people's thoughts were on taking UCLA extension courses to help offset a less than ideal quant score (660 - 50% Q / 85% V / 6 IR). Have people been successful doing this? If so what classes do you recommend? I plan on applying R3 and have a quant background professionally (IB/FP&A) and undergrad (Finance), just worried the low test score will hold me back. Thanks and congrats to the recent admits!

Just wanted to send an update, now that my profile is updated online. It does say the decision is based on merit.

Just curious - why a tough decision? UCLA is much higher ranked than USC. UCLA FEMBA is an amazing program. Westwood is a much nicer part of LA. Unless you got significant $$ from USC, this seems like a no-brainer. I'm interested to hear why you are torn between the two.

An email from Dylan the Assistant Dean last week:

Round Two Applications

Almost 95% of Round Two has been presented to Faculty Committee, three weeks ahead of schedule. We’ll complete the review next week. We are continuing to have a very good year.

I think you should apply for FEMBA R3. Your score is withing UCLA gmat range and many people with score 600 has made to program.

Congrats to everyone who got accepted to the 2019 FEMBA class.

I received my decision a few days back and I'm in as well :)
I have noticed that some of the other schools have a separate GMAT thread for admitted students, do we have one for UCLA FEMBA admitted applicants?

Thanks!

FROM UCLA FEMBA Admission Director: Good news and Great news
Friday afternoon in Westwood and what’s this unique atmospheric occurrence? Something that resembles moisture has been falling from the sky…strange.

Great last couple of weeks in FEMBA. 99% of Round Two has been reviewed by Faculty Committee and the applicants have been notified, two weeks ahead of schedule.

WELCOME to all our new Round Two members of the Class of 2019!

Applications are still up for the season, and we look forward to welcoming you to UCLA. We’ll have a welcome event April 9, and save-the-date for FEMBApalooza 5, July 24th.

PROGRAM UPGRADE: Enrichment Program for young children of Saturday FEMBAs

We have launched an Enrichment Program in partnership with UCLA Early Care and Education exclusively for the children of UCLA Affiliates. We now have an on-campus option for child care on Saturdays.

Your young children can attend an enrichment program Saturday while you attend FEMBA classes! We can’t wait to see if we attract new FEMBAs with young children who would not have chosen to get their MBA otherwise.

CONGRATULATIONS! First Place winners of the Southern California  ACG Cup last week.

ACG, the Association for Corporate Growth – Los Angeles, hosted 11 teams from multiple schools in this annual investment banking competition. Jeremy, David and Kyle’s team came out #1. The team worked hard for the three week window of the competition, and their efforts paid off!

DOING WELL WHILE DOING GOOD — ANDERSON MEETS YAMAHA MUSIC

The photo above came from one of my favorite FEMBAassadors, Geetha Rajan 17, along with this note:

Hi Dylan,

I wanted to share an amazing opportunity that FEMBA students had this week (03/07/16) . What started off as a Net Impact Case Challenge, went as far as being chosen to represent Anderson to present our recommendations on scaling Harmony (a non-profit that focuses on positive development of low-income children through music) to the CEO/President of Yamaha Music and Wellness Institute, Dr Barry Bittman. Dr. Bittman flew in from Pittsburg to understand our recommendations and was very impressed. The Price Center and Professor Bhagwan Chowdhry have been invaluable in maintaining the relationship with Harmony and giving us this opportunity.

Further, we are also chosen to present our recommendations to an Anderson Trustee who is interested in potentially investing in Harmony!

I never knew how far this would take us. Truly an opportunity of a lifetime!

Thanks,

Geetha

FEMBAs sharing their experience with their peers at Northrop Grumman

Image

Above, this year’s first Corporate Connect Information Session for Northrop Grumman employees was held at Il Fornaio Restaurant in Manhattan Beach. This event was organized by Barry Ripley 16 and attended by four other current FEMBA students Roselle Chinslo 16, Timothy Bednar 18, Stephen Moran 18, Anthony Davidson 17, and 19 prospects that currently work in the Engineering field at Northrop. There was great energy in this informal setting and several people walked away with plans to apply this year and next year. We want to thank Barry for his hard work in coordinating with current students, building the audience and reserving the restaurant to make it a convenient way for Northrop employees to meet current UCLA Anderson FEMBA students and learn about the program first hand during their lunch break.

LUNCH-AND-LEARN at the Cheesecake Factory in Sherman Oaks

Barry Ripley 16 was with Chris Thompson and me for a lunch in Sherman Oaks, above.

Last, but definitely not least, Christy Marquez and Raymond Morada put a LOT of MILES in this week recruiting. Christy did two Bay Area events, one each in San Francisco and Mountain View. She also hosted a great coffee chat here on-campus today. Raymond did two lunches, one in San Diego, and the other in Irvine. What a good, great week! Thanks to all my team.

Great weekends everyone!

Hi all, so I applied for full time at Anderson but I got dinged and got an email offering me to interview with adcoms of FEMBA program and I have to write one more essay. I am already admitted in Tepper though. So what would you advice? I do not know much about FEMBA. How would you compare FEMBA to full time Tepper MBA? Thanks!
