UCLA MFE Does UCLA MFE require CFA L1 certification before the start of the program?

Hi, I have this question. Since, i saw something similar on the UCLA website but i know people who have gotten into the program without the CFA L1 certification. So is it a mandatory requirement or its a better to have before applying?

I don't think it is a mandatory requirement but yea always better to have it to strengthen your application.
