AnnouncementLive Chats with UCLA Admissions Team


Dear Applicants,

GMAT Club and UCLA Anderson Admissions Team will be jointly conducting Live Q&A sessions for GMAT Club members applying to UCLA. There will be 3 such sessions in this application season in which members from UCLA Admissions team will dialogue with prospective applicants in GMAT Club Chat Room and answer their questions about admission process. Dates of these events are as follows.

  • August 20, 2015. 9 AM Pacific Time (4 PM GMT)

  • October 22, 2015. 9 AM Pacific Time (4 PM GMT)

  • December 08, 2015. 9 AM Pacific Time (5 PM GMT)

Here is schedule of all Live Q&A sessions. announcement-mba-info-sessions-on-gmatclub-174827.html

Last year we did a chat with UCLA admission team members. I am posting here select questions and their answers by adcoms. Complete session transcript can be downloaded from the bottom of this post.

Thank You!!

asf5915: As a recently interviewed applicant, I was curious if you release decisions before the January deadline?
UCLAAdcom_Jessica: Yes, we are planning an early decision release before the R1 decision day. At this time I don't have an exact day as to when it will be. In the past few years, the early R1 decisions went out in mid-December


emilymom: I have a question about multiple GMATs: Does the admission look at the highest score or average the scores? Also if you have access to past scores, do you ever consider a high score on a particular section from a past score (even if the past overall score is lower)?
UCLAAdcom_Kelly: Hi emilymom! We will consider the highest overall score for admission; however, your official score report will show past test scores.
UCLAStudent_James: emilymom, to that note, I took the GMAT multiple times and it was not an issue


mib_8mfshd: Can you tell us what you look for in a candidate before the interview process and after the interview process? do you review the applicant again holistically after the interview?
UCLAAdcom_Jessica: We consider all parts of the application on the first read when we make a decision to move a candidate forward to interview. After the interview, we re-evaluate the entire application with the information from the interview included. The application evaluation is absolutely a holistic review, both before and after the interview.


Narenn: Hi James, My question is for you. Apart from UCLA, you were also accepted by two other great schools. I would like to know, what motivated you to choose UCLA over other schools.
UCLAStudent_James: Hey Narenn, that is a great question! There were several factors, but for me, the biggest was the people at UCLA Anderson. Everyone that I spoke to during my decision process was incredible kind, genuine, and down to earth. Everyone was happy, and I could really sense that. Since starting a few months ago, that sentiment has just grown stronger.


Htyo: What are the options to live in UCLA campus especially for international students with family? How much is the rent?
UCLAStudent_James: Hey Htyo, I am not an international student, but I am in the same boat with a family. I actually have three kids. I live in UCLA owned graduate student family housing. It is a killer deal rent wise, but it is also a great community to be a part of.
UCLAAdcom_Kelly: Hi Htyo, thank you for joining us today. There are many options in terms of housing. Many of our students will live in Westwood, Santa Monica and this is family friendly. The 2nd/1st year students are very helpful, especially with new students coming from their home country. We will provide additional resourcess to help with this transition as well. I have included a link that you may find helpful http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/degrees/mb ... amily-life


Viraat12: I am an international applicant and my medium of language was english during undergrad and High school. Is there any need for me to give TOEFL?
UCLAAdcom_Jessica: Viraat12, TOEFL or IELTS scores are required of all applicants EXCEPT those who were educated solely in English for their undergraduate and/or prior graduate degree. If you meet this criterion, the test is not required. Even if a TOEFL/IELTS is not required, you can still submit a test score. A strong score can be another good data point on your app.


rohan: What do you look for in a student other than his/her test scores?
UCLAAdcom_Kelly: We will also evaluate the individuals leadership ability, increased responsibility in the work environment, extra curricular activities, interpersonal skills, GPA. Please also be sure to check out our application requirement section.


Jamescmit: Thank you for taking the time to chat with us today. To the current students, I am wondering what you think makes Anderson unique from other schools -- perhaps the culture, the opportunities, etc. Is there anything that has surprised you during your time at Anderson?
UCLAStudent_James: Hey jamescmit, great question! For me it was everything that you mentioned. The culture at Anderson is great! The students are incredibly smart and accomplished, but down to earth. It's a very collaborative environment. In terms of opportunities, for me, being interested in marketing and technology, there weren't too many other schools that have the connections that Anderson does. I just got back from our annual Tech Trek to Seattle and the Silicon Valley where I visited companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Nordstrom, Google, LinkedIn, as well as a few start ups.


Viraat12: I have 6 years of experience in Power sector and want to shift to consulting. How UCLA will help me in career transition especially in consulting domain?
UCLAAdcom_Jessica: Viraat12, more than half of our students are career switchers so our Parker Career Management Center is highly experienced with working with students with this goal! Also, our professional clubs are another way for great resources in leadership and professional development.


Shibojyoti: Hi James, given that I worked mainly in finance application providing consultancy to varied industry customer, what do you think would be the chances joining the IB industry at an age around 33? Will this be a real chance that I should give it a try?
UCLAStudent_James: Hey Shibojoti, rather than age, I think the most important factor is showing the companies that you are recruiting for your genuine interest and excitement for their company and industry. If you can do that and really tell your story in a way that makes sense to them, you shouldn't have a problem.


Shibojyoti: Thanks James, but a second MBA can be a road block in that sense that I have already been 7 years in IT?
UCLAAdcom_Kelly: Hi Shibojyoti, Parker Career Management Center has a host of different activities that will get you up to speed. This includes different workshops that will help you prepare for the career switch, networking hours, etc. Students also are in a course with other individuals interested in that specific field, where trends, recruiting activities, are discussed. You can also choose to do an internship your first quarter to help you gain experience in your new intended field.


graceh: James, can you talk about your academic experience at Anderson? What are classes like? How much of the work is group work? I understand it depends on subject, but just want to understand what makes Anderson different academically
UCLAStudent_James: graceh, I am winding down my first quarter at Anderson. I can tell you that the professors have not disappointed. They have been fantastic! The amount of group work does depend on the class, but I meet and work with my learning team on average a couple times per week.
One thing that I can say that makes Anderson different academically is the emphasis on applied learning. We don't just learn concepts. We are given a ton of opportunities to apply what we have learned. One example of that is the AMR project that you do in your 2nd year, http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/programs-and-outreach/amr


Shibojyoti: can you please let us know about the Fin-aid if it can cover the expense with my family....loan/scholarship?
UCLAStudent_James: Regarding your question about Fin-Aid, I am in a similar boat with children. I have been able to survive on student loans. You can get loans for childcare and also get the amount for housing increased if your rent is higher than what is allotted.


mib_8mfshd: Hi James, can you give us a snapshot of what goes into your day to day life? do you find yourself split between student activities and classes?
UCLAStudent_James: mib_8mfshd, my day-to-day life varies so much. We typically have classes Monday through Thursday. My week is sprinkled with club leadership meeting, company presentations, learning group meetings, recruiting events, interview prep team meetings, etc. In all of that I will try and squeeze in some social stuff too, not to mention a little studying. It is never boring, that's for sure!


srshrikant: I'd like to know from the admissions council perspective what role are you expecting the essay to play in the whole application?
UCLAAdcom_Jessica: srshrikant, the essay is just one piece of the admissions application, and it's a great opportunity for us to learn more about you and the principles that have guided your life to now.
UCLAAdcom_Kelly: The essay is an important factor to see your connection with the Anderson principals/community, and to see your goal reflection. Each piece of the application will be evaluated equally and is important.

Yes... a little annoying because I wrote my essays for FEMBA last year, then ended up not applying anywhere; I figured I could just update my essay from last year until I saw the topic had changed.

I'm not sure if this advice will work for others, but I let myself just freehand a response to get my brain flowing. I promised myself I would write one paragraph, hopefully it would generate some ideas, and then I would throw out the paragraph but use the ideas as an outline. I ended up writing 600 words and being pretty happy with it, so then I just pruned it back to 500 to fit the essay space. I don't know if that method will work for anyone else, but I am happy with my result.

You might also try asking a few of your friends to tell you in a sentence or two why they think you're unique so you can get a sense of how others view you, and use those ideas as a springboard.

Some ideas of questions you can ask them:
-what is my best trait? (ignore "smart" and try to dig deeper: do you have a great sense of humor? are you generous to strangers? are you a great parent? etc.)
-am I ever a little bit crazy? if so, in what way?
-if you were going to set me up on a blind date (or set up a Match/eHarmony/etc profile for me), and had to describe my personality (not appearance) in one sentence, what would you say?

Since you won't be able to describe all of your unique traits in only 500 words, I think the important thing here is to pick one theme and go with it -- use it as a lens to give them a snapshot of who you are.

Finally (and please, others, correct me if I am wrong), I get the sense that this is the place in the application to be much more personal, as opposed to using it as a forum to talk more about academics, work experience, etc. Certainly if your job makes you really unique compared to other MBA applicants (e.g., you are a professional magician, or a spy for the CIA) then talking about work makes sense. But I think for most of us who might otherwise not seem different based on our schools and work (most of us probably went to good colleges and did well, have several years of good work experience and GMAT scores over 600), this is an opportunity to show some personality and why we would work well with our classmates while we are in school, and be good ambassadors of the Anderson brand after we graduate.

Best of luck on the essay, and the application process! Here's hoping we all get accepted!

FROM UCLA FEMBA Admission Director: 3 FEMBA military leaders + $1,000,000 Hult Prize Challenge
As we approach Veteran’s Day, I’m already thinking about the contributions of leadership that the 65 active duty / reservist / veteran FEMBAs add to our great student body. This week, I want to mention three of our FEMBA military members who continue to offer their leadership to the world, even after their military service has completed.

#1  Graham Pulliam, FEMBA 2017, Director- Design and Manufacturing at i4C Innovations Inc., formerly United States Marine Corps Officer

Graham was interviewed on Public Radio International last week. If you follow this link, you can read the story and hear the radio interview of Graham.

#2  David Henwood, FEMBA 2018, Account Executive at Stryker, former US Navy Surface Warfare Officer.

On the philanthropic side, David let me know about a fund-raiser he helped plan and deliver last month.

Our event, Ohana (Hawaiian for “family”) supports the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which serves to pay for the college education of wives and children of special operations warriors.  We hosted an upscale Hawaiian resort theme/gala on Friday September 18, in Redondo Beach at the seaside lagoon, with live music as well as food tasting.  The Hawaiian theme came from my outrigger paddling team, and I have connected them with my former SEAL mentor, CDR Tom Deitz, who sits on the board of the special operations warrior foundation.

The event was a huge success.  We raised $25,224.00 – not bad for our first year!!! As I mentioned to you before, all of the event proceeds go toward funding the college tuition of wives and children of fallen Special Operations Warriors.  We are extremely excited to have nearly TRIPLED our fundraising goals!  We had our post mortem and have already started outlining plans for our September 2016 event.  I absolutely think that there is a connection for FEMBA to be part of this next year, and I will be sure to connect with you about this as time draws nearer.

#3 Mark Harper FEMBA 2011, SVP Creative and Business Development at We Are The Mighty, formerly US Air Force officer

This week I was on Facebook and I saw a link from Mark Harper, one of my all-time favorite FEMBAs. From 2010 to 2014, I hosted the “All-Anderson Commercial Challenge” and teams made 60-second viral commercials about Anderson. Mark and his classmates won the grand prize the first two years. Post-FEMBA, Mark is now the SVP in a unique start-up called We are the Mighty.com, and that is where I saw his very poignant video (link below). Keep an eye of Mark: He’s one of the most creative people I know and I love following his future.

We are supposed to hear officially on Dec. 18, right? I seem to recall from last year's forum that admits got calls a week in advance of the official notification date... which would be Dec. 11 for us. It will be a long 10 days to wait!

Best of luck to all applicants!

It seems there’s a chance that admission team may send out the decision earlier than Friday, but the decision is set to be released on Friday, Dec 18th. And I do agree the wait is devastating.

I felt the sting of the waitlist last year for Round 1. Typically, not 100%, but typically the decisions are made before the last day if you are admitted. Agreed, the full-time program seems to be the focus early this week as their deadline is tomorrow. We should start getting calls as early as tomorrow or Wednesday for part-time. Best of luck to everyone.

Thanks for the info. Sorry to hear about last year's R1 waitlist; I hope you get in this time! I'm sure Adcom will be impressed by your tenacity and dedication to re-apply.

The waiting is very hard -- I had deluded myself into thinking we would hear last Friday! -- but hopefully it will be worth it.

Best of luck to everyone!
