From the Dean’s Desk: A Message to Round 1 Applicants

This post is part of our “From the Dean’s Desk” series, where we hear directly from our UCLA Anderson leaders across the school.

Thanks to all those who have applied to UCLA Anderson in Round 1. You should be very proud of this accomplishment and we appreciate your effort to share your story.  We understand that it is no small feat to collect and submit all of the necessary application materials. At times, it might have been stressful, frustrating, complicated, or…maybe even fun! But in the end, YOU DID IT!  We truly appreciate your interest in UCLA Anderson.

So, what’s next? Well, we have already started the process of reviewing your applications. In the coming weeks, we will be inviting individuals to interview. In the meantime, here are some reminders and ideas on how to stay connected with us

  • Enjoy the MBA Campus Experience: Now that the fall quarter has started, there are still opportunities to attend a class, enjoy coffee with a student, and more. Some of the cool classes to check out include Business Plan Development, Ethical Consideration in Business, Insight to Outcome, Business Law, and more.
  • Connect with a Student: You can learn more about the campus life and get the “inside scoop” directly from a student.
  • Attend an Event: We have a few remaining (BIG) events besides our regularly scheduled campus experience events. You should check out Access Anderson in October, the Embracing Diversity Conference in November, or join me in Atlanta for our happy hour session with alumni. Visit our events page to see the entire calendar of activities.

If you are invited to interview, you will be able to see all of the necessary details (date/time/other options) to schedule the meeting. We know it may be difficult to wait, but please have patience and rest assured the Admissions Committee is carefully reviewing all of the hard work you put into telling your story throughout the application.

Good luck throughout the process!
