With UCLA Anderson's Round 1 Application Deadline for the Class of 2017 quickly approaching (October 22!), I want to begin the first of my ongoing series of application tips. Please note: they are drawn strictly from my own experiences. I hope they are helpful for you!
We've begun our first-year orientation and, my goodness... Anderson simply cannot be beat. I am blown away by the orientation experience, but mostly by all of my colleagues! My classmates are intelligent, confident but not overly so, social and engaging, inquisitive, friendly, and dynamic. It's overwhelming to think that after only four days I know these are going to be friends for life.
In today's entry, I'll start by breaking down my application tips into three main categories. They are:
1) Show you can do the work
2) Show that you are a great fit
3) Show that you have an idea of what makes you extraordinary, and can apply that to a career of relevance
