APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:

TOP 10 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS




We have compiled the top Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) we have received from prospective applicants via e-mail, phone calls, and in person. We hope the tips below help you on your MBA information gathering and your application journey.

Q1. What events are available at UCLA Anderson for prospective students interested in learning more about the MBA program and where can I sign up for them?

A1. UCLA Anderson offers group information sessions, school tours, class visits, coffee chats, lunch chats, and webinars as opportunities for prospective students to get to know us. To sign up, you can visit our Events calendar to register for a day that works for your schedule. Please note that some of these events have capacity limits. More events will be added at the start of the new year.

Q2. How do I get in touch with current students and alumni?

A2. You can reach out to our current students through our Connect with a Student interest form. Here, you can select your specific career interests and get linked up to current students pursuing similar career goals.

Q3. Do I need to submit my official transcripts and/or official test (GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS) scores when I apply to UCLA Anderson?

A3. No, you do not need to submit your official transcript documents or official test scores when applying. With your application you upload scanned unofficial copies of your transcripts and documents, and self-reported test scores are perfectly sufficient for the admissions committee to evaluate. If invited for an interview, you will be asked to provide hard copies of your transcripts and official test scores (more specific details will be provided).

Q4. Do I need to take the TOEFL/IELTS?

A4. We require all international applicants to provide TOEFL or IELTS scores (with exception of some countries -- please contact the MBA Admissions office to check), regardless of the language of instruction during your undergraduate studies. This is a requirement from UCLA Graduate Division, which is the authority that oversees all graduate admissions.

Q5. Do you offer a GMAT/GRE waiver?

A5. We do not offer GMAT/GRE waivers for any reason. All applicants must submit either GMAT or GRE scores and we recommend you take the test you feel most comfortable with, as there is currently no preference for either exam in the admissions review process.

Q6. Can I submit updates to my application after I have submitted it?

A6. Unfortunately, we do not accept updates to the application once it has been submitted. If you do wish to add information after your application has been submitted, then your application will be moved to a later round for consideration.

Q7. Do you accept transfer students or credits from other MBA programs?

A7. No, we do not accept transfer students or credits from other MBA programs. We believe that part of the Anderson experience is developing relationships with classmates during the two years of attendance in the MBA program.  You may still apply, but you would be required to begin as a first-year student. It may be possible to test out of some core courses to be replaced by MBA elective courses of your choice.

Q8. Is there a minimum GMAT/GRE score or GPA required for admission?

A8. No. Many factors are considered in the decision process. Admissions decisions are not made solely on the basis of grades and test scores. However, you may want to note our average and range of scores in our most recent class profile and ensure that your GMAT or GRE score (including Writing Assessment) represents your ability. If your score doesn't reflect your ability, we recommend that you consider retaking the test.

Q9. If I earned a three-year undergraduate degree, am I still eligible to apply?

A9. Yes, you are still welcome to apply. We do admit students with 3-year degrees but the rest of your application needs to be exceptionally strong to compete against other applicants. If you would like your academic records to equate to a 4-year degree, you would need to either complete a Master’s degree or other Post Graduate Degree/Diploma.

Q10. Can I begin the MBA program in the winter or spring?

A10. Unfortunately, we do not offer spring or winter admission.  All students in the Full-Time MBA program start at the same time (end of summer).

APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:



TOP QUESTIONS FROM INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS



As we get closer to our Round 2 deadline (January 8, 2019), we thought it would be helpful to share some of the common questions that we receive from international applicants. Below are the top 12 FAQs we receive from international candidates:

Q1. Is the application for international applicants the same as the application for domestic applicants?
A1. Yes, we use the same application for both international and domestic applicants.

Q2. If I have dual citizenship (i.e., Italy and U.S.), am I considered an international applicant or a U.S. applicant?
A2. We use the primary citizenship listed on your application --  if you list your U.S. citizenship as your primary citizenship, you are considered a U.S. applicant. However, if you list your U.S. citizenship as your secondary citizenship, you are considered an international applicant.

Q3. What academic records do I need to submit with my application? What if they are not in English?
A3. In order to submit a completed application, you will need to upload a complete transcript and degree certificate or diploma in the native language of the country in which your degree was earned, as well as a certified translation in English. Please make sure that your degree certificate or diploma shows the exact degree received and date awarded. If invited to interview, you will be required to send us official hard-copy documents.

Q4. My undergraduate university does not use the 4.0 scale for my grades. Do I need to convert my grades?
A4. No, please do not convert your grades to a 4.0 scale. We will evaluate your transcripts using the grading scale used by your institution. It is helpful if the grading scale is visible on your transcripts or degree certificate/diploma.

Q5. If I earned a three-year undergraduate degree, am I still eligible to apply?
A5. Yes, you are still welcome to apply. We do admit students with 3-year degrees, but the rest of your application needs to be exceptionally strong to compete against other applicants with 4-year degrees. If you would like your academic records to equate to a 4-year degree, you would need to either complete a master's degree or other post-graduate degree/diploma.

Q6. Is the TOEFL or IELTS required for all international applicants?
A6. TOEFL or IELTS scores are required of all international applicants EXCEPT those from a select list of countries. For more information please refer to UCLA Graduate Division Office English Requirements.

Q7. Is the TOEFL preferred over the IELTS?
A7. No, both exams are accepted equally. It is up to you to decide which test you prefer.

Q8. If I completed my bachelors or masters degree in the United States, do I need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score?
A8. No, if you have a bachelors or masters degree from a university in the United States, you do not need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score. The same applies if your bachelors or masters degree is from a university located in another country in which English is both the primary spoken language of daily life and the medium of instruction (e.g., Australia, Barbados, Canada, Ireland, Jamaica, New Zealand, United Kingdom).

Q9. How does the interview process work?
A9. Interviews are conducted on an invitation basis only after submitted applications are reviewed. Interviews last approximately 30 minutes and are intended to be an interactive conversation. We are interested in getting to know you as an individual and understanding how you'll fit into the next class. A large portion of our interviews are conducted by student ambassadors.

Q10. If invited to interview, do I have to interview on the UCLA Anderson campus?
A10. No. We offer two interview options: on-campus or online via Skype. If invited to interview, you will be able to choose which option is best for you. If you would like to visit campus to interview in person, you are welcome to, but we do not expect all applicants to do so. There is no difference or preference between interviews.

Q11. If I am visiting campus and have not received an interview invitation, can I request one?
A11. While we encourage applicants to visit a class or attend on-campus events, it is not possible to request a formal application interview if you have not received an invitation. Since our interviews are conducted on an invitation basis, we need to respect our process in order to be fair to all applicants.

Q12. If I need more time to submit my application, can I apply in Round 3 as an international student?
A12. Yes. While Round 3 is generally more competitive because fewer seats are usually available in the class, it is still a very viable round.

From The Dean's Desk: Round 1 Decisions Released Today  [#permalink]

FROM NewsUCLA: From The Dean's Desk: Round 1 Decisions Released Today
This post is part of our “From the Dean’s Desk” series, where we hear directly from our UCLA Anderson leaders across the school.

Just after midnight today, we released all of our decisions to our full-time MBA Round 1 applicants for our Class of 2021! Admissions officers also called each admit yesterday, so we had the chance to break the news to a lot of surprised candidates. It was so wonderful to hear the joy and excitement on the other end of the phone line!

All Round 1 applicants received an email to check their Status Page for their decision letter, as we use that secure site to display letters rather than actually sending them by email.  If you applied but did not see the notification email, please check your spam folder, or just go directly to your Status Page to view your admissions decision.

We are already receiving Round 2 applications and we know, as always, it will be our biggest round of the year.  We look forward to seeing many more excellent candidates in the new year by the Round 2 deadline of January 8 (or Round 3 deadline of April 16).

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our application for Round 1, good luck to those working on applications for Rounds 2 and 3, and congratulations to all of our new admits!



Cheers!

Alex

After a few weeks off for relaxation and travel, our students returned this week for the Winter Quarter. Our Admissions Ambassador Corps (AAC) is back to work with our Campus Experience offerings, including General Information Sessions (GIS), school tours, class visits, webinars, coffee chats and lunches. These events are all great opportunities to learn more about the MBA program, our culture, and individual experiences at UCLA Anderson.

Class Visit
Join an actual full-time MBA class and experience the collaborative environment among our students and faculty. Classes are generally held Monday through Thursday during the academic year (beginning the 2nd week of the quarter).

Webinars
Join our student ambassadors and admissions officers as we discuss the UCLA Anderson MBA experience, the admissions process and answer your questions. These interactive sessions are offered on most Thursdays from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM.

Coffee Chat or Lunch

APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:

WAITLIST GUIDELINES


Getting onto UCLA Anderson’s waitlist is an exceptional accomplishment; waitlisted candidates are recognized as potentially being a strong fit, but we cannot offer everyone a seat at this time due to size limitations. Nevertheless, we encourage you to read the following guidelines to learn more about the waitlist and ways to potentially enhance your candidacy.

  • You will remain on the waitlist until a final decision is made on your application or until you request that your application be withdrawn. 
  • Waitlisted candidates (except those who withdraw) will be reconsidered for admission in subsequent rounds.
  • Round 1 applicants will receive an update on their application status on or before the Round 2 decision deadline which is March 26, 2019. Some candidates may be offered the option of remaining on the waitlist for consideration in Round 3.
  • Remaining waitlisted candidates from Round 1 and Round 2 will receive an update on their application status by the Round 3 decision deadline which is May 21, 2019. 
  • We cannot give individual feedback to waitlisted applicants.
  • The likelihood of being admitted off the waitlist is difficult to predict since the number of students admitted from the waitlist varies from year to year depending on the size/strength of the admit pool, the number of admits who enroll, and several other factors.
  • OPTIONAL: Waitlisted candidates may send updates to wlmgr@anderson.ucla.edu.
    • We ask that you use your personal judgment and discretion in submitting additional information that is relevant to your application. Examples include (but are not limited to): promotions at work, updated test scores, and recent extracurricular accomplishments.
    • Prior to submitting additional information to the waitlist manager, please consider:
      • Each interaction we have with you moving forward can be a data point on your file, so be your updates add value.
      • The quality of information and communication is more important than the quantity.
If you are on the waitlist and have any additional questions, please e-mail wlmgr@anderson.ucla.edu

We appreciate your continued interest in UCLA Anderson and look forward to being in touch in the coming months!

APPLICATION INSIDER TOPIC:

INTERVIEW TIPS


Interviews are a crucial part of the application process. While interviews serve as an opportunity to meet you in person, learn more about your goals, and potentially, clear up any questions that we may have about your application, they are one of the best ways for you to demonstrate that you have a clear vision for your MBA and how you will enhance our community.

The first step to ensuring that you are prepared for your MBA interview is to understand the interview process. For UCLA Anderson specifically, our interviews are invitation-only interviews, which means that we first evaluate your application before deciding whether or not to extend an interview invitation. Staying true to our collaborative spirit, the majority of our interviews are conducted by second year student ambassadors. Our student ambassadors are our partners in the admissions process and we value the insight they provide in helping to select the next class of Anderson students.

Here are a few tips to make sure that you make a positive impression during your interview:

  • Be professional. Treat the interview as you would an employment interview. Be on time, dress professionally, and make sure that your resume is up-to-date. Remember to treat everyone that you meet with respect.
  • Be confident. Don’t forget that you can exhibit confidence through your body language. Sit tall with your shoulders back and remember to maintain good eye contact with your interviewer.
  • Engage. Remember that the interview is not one-sided, it is meant to be a conversation. Be prepared to share about yourself, engage in the conversation, and ask thoughtful questions. The interview is also an opportunity to learn from your interviewer.
  • Be clear. Be prepared to speak to why you are pursuing an MBA, your goals, and why UCLA Anderson is a good choice for you. Understand how your experience to date can help support your goals and how an Anderson MBA can help you fill any gaps or help you develop further. You should also be prepared to speak to how you can contribute to our community.
  • Be genuine. Be yourself and enjoy the conversation. The interview is an opportunity for you to showcase your personality, enhance your candidacy, and learn more about UCLA Anderson.

To learn more about our interview or the admissions process in general, I encourage you to review our Requirements and FAQ webpages.

You should also be prepared to speak to how you can contribute to our community.
  • Be genuine. Be yourself and enjoy the conversation. The interview is an opportunity for you to showcase your personality, enhance your candidacy, and learn more about UCLA Anderson.

To learn more about our interview or the admissions process in general, I encourage you to review our Requirements and FAQ webpages.
