Round 2 Admissions Decisions Imminent from Harvard Business School, UCLA Anderson

Busy admissions offices this week at Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Anderson School of Management at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), as both schools prepare to announce Round 2 decisions tomorrow, March 30th.

In a post to her Director’s Blog today, HBS Dean of Admission and Financial Aid Dee Leopold shared that her office expects to send an email out tomorrow at around noon EST to let applicants know that their decisions are available online. Congratulatory phone calls will follow later in the day to those candidates who have been admitted, she added.

“We will not be calling people to give them news of decisions,” Leopold stressed. “While we could do otherwise, we choose this way because I hate to think about the additional anxiety of waiting for the phone to ring. This way you’re in control of the time and place you choose to get the news.”

At UCLA Anderson, meanwhile, the Admissions Committee is also taking a final look at applicants in preparation for the final release of Round 2 decisions tomorrow. “It has been a very competitive round,” wrote Admissions Committee Member Karen Gracey in a post to the UCLA Anderson MBA Insiders’ Blog yesterday.

Two previous batches of early decisions were released to subsets of Round 2 applicants in recent weeks, one on March 16th and another on March 23rd. But according to Associate Director of Admissions Adrian Auguirre, there is no order to the release of decisions. “If you did not hear from us today, you are still under consideration for admission,” Aguirre wrote on the day the second batch of admission notifications went out.

Final admits in UCLA Anderson’s Round 2 can expect a call or email tomorrow from the Admissions Committee welcoming them to the Anderson community. Anderson will host new admits at an upcoming preview weekend, Anderson Days II, on April 9th and 10th.

Good luck everyone!
