UCLA Anderson Application Deadlines for 2010-2011

UCLA’s Anderson School of Management recently released its application deadlines for the coming admissions season. Here they are, followed by our comments, in italics:

UCLA Anderson MBA Admissions Deadlines
Round 1: October 20, 2010
Round 2: January 5, 2011
Round 3: April 13, 2011

While other top MBA programs have moved their Round 1 deadlines forward, Anderson actually moved its deadline back by six days this year. Note that, unlike other business school, Anderson won’t give you our Round 1 decision until the second week of January, so you may need to submit your Round 2 applications to other programs before receiving your Round decision from Anderson.

UCLA’s Round 2 deadline is virtually unchanged since last year, but its Round 3 deadline is actually almost a month LATER than it was in 2009-2010. Anderson has said that it doesn’t want to miss out on strong applicants who may choose an international program such as LBS simply because that school still accepts applications as late as April. This is a smart move, in our opinion.
