2-3 years is on the lower end of the work experience for UCLA , I would suggest to look around gmatclub with people having similar experience as yours and then possibly take a clue from that

Re: UCLA Anderson 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink]
Hey everyone, best of luck. I would love to hear some thoughts about Essay #1.

1) What is your proudest achievement outside the workplace, and how has it impacted you? (700 words maximum)

By far my proudest achievement has been my start-up, which I ran as a side project for the first two years before leaving work to focus on it full time. I'm not sure if this would still be considered "outside the workplace" but feel it may be valid since it took up a significant portion of my spare time.

I think I'll be an interesting case study:

3.25 Undergrad in Econ / 750 GMAT
4 years in banking then went off and tried to start my own business
ZERO extra curricular - this is one of my biggest concerns

PS: Is anyone else paranoid about adcoms lurking? Does it matter?

Re: UCLA Anderson 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink]
One of my recommenders tells me today that he has prepared a word document for the reco.
However, when he tries to copy and paste it in the form, the app form does not take it.

It is awkward to ask him to type the whole reco again in the online form. Has anybody else faced the same issue ?

Hi, my recommender had that problem and said the following:

BTW, UCLA disables pasting into the form but if you disable javascript paste and re-enable it works fine.
(Just in case this comes up for another referrer)

Thanks londoncalling. How do you disable/enable javascript paste ? Do I need to change the code ?

Also, if UCLA has disabled it intentionally, would it be wise to do so ? Or shall I put this question to the Adcom ?

Anyone else think it's a bit much that UCLA asks for a copy of a government issued id?

Yes, my DMV mug shot definitely isn't benefiting my candidacy...

Round 1 application submitted last night. Good luck to all other fellow GC members!

Just submitted my app. The final signature step showed the date as 25th Oct. Is it already past 11.59 pm PST ?
This is scary.

No, it is 11:04PM PST here in Los Angeles, well before midnight.

I believe the server the application system is running on is located on the US east coast in EST. When I submitted my Anderson application last night 10/23 at 9:07PM PST, the final step showed the date as October 24th. I think you should be good.
