Hi Iris, we will revisit the waitlist over the summer as space opens up in the program. As such, you can hear back from us at any point in the summer up until the start of the fall quarter. If you have any questions or would like to be removed from the waitlist, please send us an email at wlmgr@anderson.ucla.edu. Hope this helps!

The vast majority of interview invitations have been sent, so between now and June 3 I don't expect many more will go out (perhaps a handful since we are still evaluating applications). Hope this helps and best of luck!

Hi German, can you send us an email at mba.admissions@anderson.ucla.edu so we can look into your situation? Thanks!

Hi Doug and Yanna! We made most admit phone calls yesterday but there may be some today (mostly admits we couldn't reach yesterday). All R2 decisions are now available in ApplyYourself. Hope this helps!

Hi German! We are calling all admitted students today (April 1) but it's possible some individuals did not pick up their phones or we were unable to leave a voicemail. The decisions will be available in ApplyYourself very soon. Best of luck!

Hi Akshay, you'll definitely hear from us no later than the R1 decision day on Jan 28th. We are aiming to release an early batch of admits in December like we've done in the past but at this point I'm unsure if or when that will happen.

Hi Vratul, all applicants are evaluated on the same timeline regardless of country or location. Hope this helps!

Hi Fernando, you'll hear back from us no later than the Round 1 notification date on Jan 28th. We will likely release some early decisions but at this time we do not know exactly when this will be, but I'll definitely keep everyone posted via this blog!

Hi Jeff, ultimately it's a personal decision. If you're confident you can increase your score on the next try, it might be worth it. However if you find yourself scoring about the same on tests and practice tests, perhaps your time is better spent refining your essay, resume, and other parts of your application.

Aside from Commencement, another exciting event that took place on campus in June was the annual Forte Women's MBA Conference. This was the second time UCLA Anderson hosted the conference (the first time was in 2012). Among the hundreds of attendees from around the country was incoming UCLA Anderson Forte Fellow Sarah Wolf who shared some insights on the event below. Read on to learn more! Tell us about some of the sessions you attended – what did you learn from them? In addition to the full attendance sessions, I was excited to attend the “Own the Dance, Negotiating with Confidence” and “Lemons into Lemonade: Own Your Failures” sessions. Although I have long known there is a discrepancy between female and male negotiations, it was shocking to see the staggering differences between the sexes. And though I have been asked to “talk about a time you’ve failed” a number of times, it was incredibly helpful to think about the simple structure of a story in framing that interview question response. What was your most significant takeaway from the Conference? Women in business don’t need to act like “one of the boys” in order to be successful. Rather we need to own our differing perspectives and values as we re-frame the discussion about what attributes are necessary for success. What are you looking forward to most about business school? I am looking forward to spending two years surrounded by fascinating and intelligent individuals who will push me to grow as a... Continue reading

Hi Deepak, the vast majority have been sent out as of today, but there's a chance a few more may go out as the admissions committee wraps up their evaluation on remaining files.

This post comes courtesy of the UCLA Anderson blog and was written by Asmi Shah, Class of 2014. The 2014 Entrepreneur Association Conference: The Evolving Entrepreneur is the best thing I’ve done at Anderson. Since October, I had been working with Kristina Bidovec (’14) and Bo Pulito (’14) to organize the event. This year, we created a partnership between the Entrepreneur Association (EA) and High Tech Business Association (HTBA) to expand the reach of the conference. Countless hours were spent brainstorming themes, new initiatives and of course – keynotes. We knew that keynotes pull a crowd and sell tickets, so there was a lot of pressure to get this right. Judging by the response last Friday, we indeed got it right: Sean Rad, Founder & CEO of Tinder, along with Anderson’s own Emily Taylor; Kelly Perdew, CEO of TargetClose; and Mohanjit Jolly, Partner & Managing Director at DFJ Venture. Kristina, Bo and I also worked with a group of 25 students to organize panels and content, obtain sponsors, market the event and run operations. It was a lot of work, but I was inspired by the passion and energy our team brought. We were the managers — thinking strategically about the event, the Anderson brand name, and how to maximize community engagement. We motivated the team when the end goal was months and months away. The three of us rallied together when ticket sales seemed slow, so we reached out to additional media sponsors, emailed personal contacts, and physically canvased... Continue reading

Hi Sesha, interview invitations are sent via email but won't necessarily be reflected in your online application status.
