Applying to business school can seem like a daunting task. Between juggling your demands at work, studying for the GMAT, chasing after your recommendations, and the multiple essay rewrites, it is not unusual to find yourself in the 3rd round of a the application process feeling a bit overwhelmed. If any of this rings true, this post is for you.
First, you are not alone, what you are experiencing is normal. Applying to a business school like UCLA Anderson is an important endeavor that can make a significantly positive personal and professional impact on your life. Second, contrary to the belief that the 3rd round of the application process is so vast and competitive that your chances of being admitted are significantly reduced, you should know that each round is evaluated independently. You only compete with other people in your round. If your application is reasonably strong your chances of being admitted to the UCLA Anderson full-time MBA program are as good as any other previous round.
