【2019年9月入学用エッセイ課題】UCLA (Anderson)

UCLA Andershon Schoolのエッセイ課題が発表されました。

First-Time Applicants

Essay Question: Describe your short-term and long-term career goals. How can the UCLA Anderson experience add value to your professional development? (500 words maximum)

Short Answer Question: What are you passionate about and why? (300 words maximum)

Please note:

Your essays are the primary way for you to share your perspectives and plans with the Admissions Committee. The best essays are introspective, genuine and succinct in directly answering our questions and responding to our topics.

  • You should try to distinguish yourself by showing what makes you different from others who share similar profiles.
  • Personal expression is what we are looking for, not platitudes.
  • Making a strong case for your future plans requires you to first do research on career paths and find one that resonates. Even if this target will change during business school, your application essays should lay out a clear trajectory for short-term and long-term goals. Do this by demonstrating how you expect to build on skills from your past, and those you expect to gain from the MBA.
  • Essays are more compelling if they include specific courses, programs, groups, opportunities and activities from which you would benefit if admitted to UCLA Anderson. These references are best found through online research, personal discussions and a campus visit (if possible).
  • Content and clarity are key elements, as we seek superior communication skills.
  • Style is a consideration, too, although we understand that those who speak other languages may have different manners of expression in English. We do check your essays for plagiarism, so make sure you always submit your own work.
  • Length does not equal strength. A well-written short essay can have even more impact than a longer essay. Please try to respect the word limits indicated above.
  • All essays and short answer responses are to be submitted in written form only.
  • All essays and short answer responses are to be entered directly in the text box provided in your application.

【出願時期/1st Rd. or 2nd?】 UCLA Anderson talks

以下の記事はUCLA Anderson School Admissions Blog.からの引用です。http://mbablogs.anderson.ucla.edu/mba_admissions/2017/08/ucla-anderson-application-insider-which-round-to-apply-in.html


より適切な判断を下すためにでも、Round 1, 2, そして3のメリット・デメリットをおさらいしておきましょう。

The pros and cons of each round below may help you determine which is the best round for you. That said, please remember that the relative competitiveness of each round varies, as the applicant pool changes from year to year.


Pros: In Round 1, all seats are available (for UCLA Anderson, that’s about 360 in our full-time MBA class) so we have room to admit all of the qualified candidates that we come across.  Further, in Round 1 we have the full amount of merit-based fellowship funds left to distribute.  Applying early can also show the Admissions Committee that you’re serious about attending our business school.  There is also still the opportunity to be put on the waitlist to be potentially re-evaluated in Rounds 2 and/or 3. And if you do not get accepted into our program, you will likely have have sufficient time to apply to another school’s program in their later rounds.

Cons: Applicants may feel rushed to complete their application by a Round 1 deadline.  Without proper time management, individuals may not allot sufficient time to put together the highest quality application that they are capable of, and therefore may run the risk of hurting their chances for acceptance into our program.  Having insufficient time to self-reflect on short- and long-term goals, do research on MBA programs, and write the essay response may be evident on the application to the Admissions committee (especially the essay). Further, if you have not given sufficient time for your recommenders to complete their letters of recommendation, the quality of those crucial elements of the application may also be compromised.  You also will have the least amount of time to complete your GMAT/GRE and TOEFL/IELTS exams, and without proper planning, will likely not have time to re-take the exams if you’re not satisfied with your first score.


Pros: Round 2 is the most popular round for applicants here at UCLA Anderson, with a majority of our applications received in this round. By applying in Round 2, you have additional time to complete your application and write your essay; plus your recommenders also have more time to finish their recommendations.  If you aren’t happy with your score on the GMAT/GRE and/or TOEFL/IELTS, you will likely also have time to re-take the exam (we only evaluate your top score). Possibly the greatest advantage of applying in Round 2 is that you have more time to learn about our program by attending Admissions events. Perhaps you can even schedule a campus visit to meet with current students and observe a class! By having this time to get first-hand experience on our program, you may gain a better understanding of your own school preferences and MBA goals, all which will reflect in your application.

Cons: We receive the largest number of applications during Round 2, so competition is high (especially since we also have Round 1 waitlisted candidates still under consideration).  If you do not get accepted (which hopefully won’t be the case!) you may not have sufficient time to apply to another program within the same academic year.


Pros: Perhaps the biggest benefit in applying in Round 3 is that you have the most time to enhance your application profile — the additional time may allow you to get a promotion at work, take on a new project, and/or get involved in more leadership activities, for example. With more time to self-reflect on your goals, the application, and the essay question, applying in Round 3 may give you the advantage of giving you the most amount of time to put together the highest quality application possible for you. If you applied to other programs in earlier rounds, you will likely also be equipped with acceptance information from those schools. You will also have ample time to take (and potentially re-take) the GMAT/GRE and/or TOEFL/IELTS exams.

Cons: Since our class size is capped, fewer applicants are historically admitted in the last round simply due to the availability of spots in the class.  This makes this round the most competitive out of all. While you can still be placed on our waitlist, there are still likely many other individuals from earlier Rounds on our waitlist that you’ll be still compared against.
