I am very confused with whether "for" or "to" should be used after "apply". Can I say:
I am going to apply for the UCLA MBA program.
Or "apply to" is a better option?
Also, are there any rules for "apply for" or "apply to". I know "apply for a job" and "apply to a school", and would like to learn more if possible.
Thanks a lot for your attention!

Jane Brown"Apply for", I think... Well, I've been using it this way all my life=)Thanks Jane!
However, I do see "apply to" on some websites like: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/clinicalresearchscholars/apply/index.html
Any other ideas?
Thanks a lot!
There's also the use of "apply to" that means something is/isn't relevant. For example, "Families get extra benefits from the government in some countries, but it doesn't apply to me because I am not married and have no children."
AnonymousIs it apply to Phd programs or apply for Phd programs?It could be either. Is the writer thinking of the set of courses or its administration?
