Reapplicants are those who submitted a completed MBA application within the previous two years and received a final decision. Reapplicants are evaluated by the same standards as first-time applicants, so there is no disadvantage to reapplying. Reapplicants must submit a new application that includes all required data forms and essays, an updated resume, transcripts, letters of recommendation and the application fee. Standardized test scores (GMAT, GRE, TOEFL and IELTS) may be reused if the score has not expired.
We strongly recommend that as a reapplicant to UCLA Anderson you use the optional essay (on the UCLA Anderson Supplemental Application) to outline how you have improved your candidacy since your last application. The Admissions Committee will be looking for substantive changes in your qualifications. We also recommend that you provide updated professional recommendations that may highlight your most recent professional achievements, as well as speak to how you have enhanced your candidacy since you last applied. If you have taken the GMAT/GRE or TOEFL/IELTS again, ask to have the new official scores sent to the Consortium and note your new score on the Test Score section of the application.
