I received the following from Shirley at USC today:

"I have reviewed your strong application and would love to talk with you about your plans and how interested you are in spending a year in sunny Southern California. If you would like to discuss your plans and our program, let me know some good dates and times and we’ll set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you."

It doesn't say INTERVIEW anywhere in there, but I assume that's what it is! I will update after I speak with her.

Has anyone heard from USC yet?

Agreed. And congrats on the interview belle.

I e-mailed the USC office to see if I could get a sense for when all decisions will be made (the website only mentions international decisions will be finalized by March/April), but I haven't heard back (not surprising).

I'm going on a campus visit to check out UT next week, but I can't find anything similar with Illinois. UT set up an itinerary with specific appointments, class sit-ins, a meeting with a current student, a campus tour, etc. They're really going the extra mile, whereas the Illinois guy just told me he could answer questions over the phone during his office hours. I called the visitor center and they said they only have "admitted student days" for undergrads. They don't even offer weekend campus tours until Feb 20th, less than a week from my deadline! On top of that, their website is very lacking compared to UT and some of the others. I'm not sure why they don't have anything in place to help someone make a decision on the program. Maybe they think their #2 national ranking is enough...

Is anyone else planning on taking visits or are you comfortable making the decision "online"?

Hi there. Found out on the 23rd.

Got an e-mail from USC similar to Belle's, so I guess it's an "interview".

We'll see next week though.

Hey all,

I got a 620 on my GMAT (I don't now the breakdown by heart),3.7 GPA with acct and finance majors.
Interned with Deloitte 3 years ago,interned with a bank a year ago,and I am currently working at E&Y in Serbia until I go back to school in September.

Anyway, I got accepted to Ohio State,and waiting on Boston College and Baruch. I would like to get a job in the northeast region, primarily because my girlfriend is from there.
OSU is the best ranked program of my three choices, but would going to a school in the target area be more beneficial??
I have read some articles and opinions stating that the rankings are not THAT important when it comes to MSA... I don't know. I am really struggling with picking a school. (Granted I get into either BC or Baruch. If I don't, then I have nothing to consider or worry about. haha).

Cheers everyone!

Ohio State is probably not the best school to get a Big 4 placement in the Northeast. The only big midwest school with lots of alum representation at my previous Big 4 firm was Notre Dame.

With your GMAT and GPA, you should get into Baruch. You are on the borderline for BC.

Hi all,

I had my USC interview (if you could call it that) with Shirley and I was accepted!

I would be happy to answer any questions to help others out.

Good luck everyone!

eileenwy,

I am not an international student. Shirley also told me that my interview was very early on in the admissions process, so I wouldn't worry if you haven't heard anything yet.

Sure. I leave Saturday so I'm excited. I'm meeting with two students and several other advisers/faculty, so it should be a useful trip.

Just had my "interview" with Cathy from USC and was accepted so I'm heading out there to check it out in a couple weeks. These trips are adding up quickly but I don't know how to decide without visiting!

And congrats Belle! Maybe we'll be classmates in the near future. Are you going to visit the campus?

Hey ciphet.

The interview was really informal. We chatted for 10 minutes, then she asked me a couple of generic questions like why I'm interested in the program. After that I asked her questions for about 30 minutes and then she said I was accepted at the end.

That's about it.

Becoming very anxious to hear back from UIUC. I'm an undergrad here now, so if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

Congrats Puckman! I am planning on visiting campus, but I'm not sure when I will be able to make it happen.

Ciphet, I'll share my interview experience:

Mine was also a VERY informal phone interview. We started off by chatting about my hometown because Shirley had recently visited it.

Then she asked me a couple of questions:
-Specific question related to my admissions essay.
-If I was serious about attending USC.
-And, what other schools I applied to/if I was accepted.

Then, she told me I was accepted! Very painless. The rest of the time, I just asked her questions about recruitment, summer intensive, etc. The whole thing lasted about 15 minutes.
