Can anyone provide more insight into the programs at UVA and Notre Dame. Both seem like great programs, but I'd like to hear from current/former students or anyone who has any input on the programs. Thanks and good luck to all!

I applied to the MSA program at Boston College and was notified that they wanted to schedule an interview. Does anyone know anything more about this? I know that typically interviews are not required for the program so is this a good sign or a bad sign?


I actually got a request for an interview, too. I had a 700 GMAT and 3.4 GPA. I was sort of surprised because I didn't think they did interviews for the MSA program. I graduated with a non-accounting undergraduate degree so that could have something to do with it.

It's not a bad sign if you are asked to interview. I had to interview to both schools I am applying to and I was accepted to both with $.

Ok, great. Thank you for the responses. Did anyone receive significant scholarships from UT-Austin, Boston College, Ohio State or DePaul?

ND Alum here. I can highly recommend the program. They do a lot to a lot to bring the class throughout the program and everyone gets into football. Career services does a great job as well. For the most part students do well in recruiting. Coming from a lesser known state school, it was academically challenging for me as well. I'm happy to answer any other questions.

I have already been accepted to USC's MBT program. I think I interviewed 12/17 and heard back 1/5 with the acceptance.

I honestly don't remember them all. There was a thread a while back that said something like "USC Interview coming up - pretty scared" and I just read all of the questions from there and those were the ones that were asked. From what I remember it was:

1. Tell me about yourself
2. Why USC
3. I see you did x (on your resume) please explain
4. Why tax (I applied MBT) over accounting
5. What have you been doing since you graduated
6. Do you have any questions for me

It was a pretty easy interview. Lasted about 30-45 minutes. When you do go, I'd suggest that you print out your email confirmation for your appointment if you do the interview on campus. There was a mix up with my parking, and I got lucky that the guy handling the gate let me in. If you have any other questions for me please feel free to ask or pm me.

Has anyone interviewed at William & Mary yet? I have a phone interview scheduled for Friday, and I'm curious about what to expect.

Thanks!

acctngnoob, congrats on your USC acceptance. :)

I have very similar stats as you (710, 3.4x), but no experience, so keeping my fingers crossed.

Has anyone else heard back from USC, even if it's just an update? I submitted my app the first week in Jan, but when I log on to check all it says is to keep on checking back for updates/items still required/etc.

I have an interview tomorrow with USC. Im guessing itll take about 1-2 weeks after that to hear the final decision.

I think I finished my app in early november and my letters of recommendation were submitted early to mid december. So it took almost 2 months.

I got into Wake Forest with scholarship money. ($2,500/semester) :-D
I'm trying to decide between Wake Forest's MSA and Rutgers' MBA in Professional Accounting.
Anyone have thoughts?

Here's my stats:

GPA: 3.52 cumulative, 3.74 major (Business Economics from a state school in the Rocky Mountain region)
GMAT: 690, 45Q, 39Q (BTW: Here's a great piece of advice for the GMAT, DO NOT SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON ANY QUESTION ON THE GMAT! I spent 7 minutes on the first math question, messed up my timing, had 6 questions to do with less than 2 minutes to go.)

Schools:
Vanderbilt: Rejected
Wake Forest
UNC
UVA
Probably USC, Boston College, NC State


Wow, what do you think the reason for the Vanderbilt rejection was? You're just below mean GPA and above GMAT mean.


That's a good question. Your guess would be as good as mine. I believe the statistics are a little deceiving because of the small class size. They try to get a diverse student body, so some of the GPA and GMAT scores are a little skewed. I thought I had a good chance, as they try to get get students from all over the country and I live in the Rocky Mountain area. It's unfortunate that many schools choose students for reasons other than education merits, but that's just the way it is. I was a little taken back with some of the questions that they asked on the application. Many I did not think were appropriate (like race, parent's colleges and universities, parent's career), but I guess they have to ask those questions to get a diverse student body.


I got rejected from Vandy too..they were a pain in the ass to deal with..both my professors sent in their letters of recommendation to the admissions office- it was confirmed that Vandy received those letters and then a month later, I get an email telling me that they didn't receive them... :?
