I thought Iâ€™d have a break after I did my Haas Interview, since I applied to that school a month earlier than all my other schools, but I guess thatâ€™s not happening.Â Donâ€™t worry, Iâ€™m not complaining.Â 😉
I was literally staring at my Gmail account when the invite popped up.Â At first, I thought it was spam and clicked on it to unsubscribe.Â But upon further inspection, I discovered the good news.Â I can definitely see myself attending UCLA because of its West Coast presence and its strong focus on entrepreneurship.Â During my research of the school, I met a number of successful Anderson grads who loved their MBA experience.
I feel fortunate to have received such good news within what was essentially just a weekâ€™s worth of time.Â Given the timing of events, Iâ€™m realizing that thereâ€™s a good chance I wonâ€™t be spending that much time in the waiting game.Â My next few months could be filled with interview prep, with decisions scattered throughout.Â That is unless I get waitlisted of course.
Anyway, Iâ€™m going to have to start planning some time off to complete both of my upcoming interviews.Â Itâ€™s so difficult to concentrate on work when you feel like youâ€™re on the cusp of changing your career.

Congrats on the interview invites! Best of luck!
Congratulations on both invitations!
I am one of those entrepreneurial Anderson grads who remembers by MBA experience fondly — although I admit that it was long enough ago that it probably isn’t terribly relevant to you.
To prepare, review feedback for both schools at http://www.accepted.com/mba/interviews/advancedsearch.aspx. We have reports from this season. After you interview, please share your experience. You can do so anonymously and submitting a report makes you eligible to win an iPad.
Thanks for the advice Linda. UCLA is definitely a great school.
