Here's to hoping for sure...like I said, you have at least another week (possibly even 2) before you get too down. Best of luck.


Thanks. I applied to Anderson, Merage and Haas as a long shot... so far I have only received an interview from UCI. What about you?



Advertising and Design sound awesome! Very rare, I must say, mind me asking what concentration are you looking into?
Can you give me some suggestions for schools geared towards creative careers? -Art Businesses etc. (if any)

Got it! Yes, absolutely and makes perfect sense.

Being born and raised in California has allowed me to visit the schools I'm interested in a few times.

Best of luck to you!

Would you mind sharing your stats? :)

Unsure. Really backed up, I guess. I know their law school admissions dept takes forever, too.

At this rate I'll have my McCombs DECISION before I interview (maybe?) at USC!


Same here...done with Smeal, Fisher, Notre Dame and Kellogg interviews...decisions from Smeal (Accept) and ND (waitlist) in. No interview news from Berkeley and USC yet. I am going to visit the campuses mid-March...hope to get interview calls, after the visit; because at Kellogg I interviewed before visiting (I know duh!) and it was not a good decision.

No... I definitely would not say my visiting the campus will have anything to do with getting an interview call; but once I have seen the campus, met the students, I find it easier to actually communicate with the interviewer, plus I know if its a culture fit or not. To me that is VERY important... I cant stage or prepare for interviews or talking, so unless I know I fit, how do I interview? Do you see what I mean?[/quote]

Sounds great. I applied to Stanford, Cal, UCLA, USC (waiting on all 4) and UCSD (full-ride fellowship)

In all honesty, if I get into UCLA, I will accept. I'm a Bruin undergrad, and even my interviewer at Anderson was a USC Undergrad, and said Anderson is much better than Marshall.
I would like to get accepted to both though. And if UCLA says no, I would be happy to go to USC. (Just don't tell them they are my 2nd choice!)

I've already interviewed at Anderson and had my UT McCombs interview today with an LA alumnus in Century City. Why is USC taking so long?

Thanks kchatterjee, unfortunately thus far it has not been very helpful!

I am looking to go into marketing / brand management - I was an art undergrad, but since my graduation I have only held advertising (non-creative) positions. As for schools, I applied to UCLA, USC, UCI and Berkeley as I wanted to stay in CA. I know Kellogg is the premier school for marketing... but in terms of specifically art related b-schools, I couldn't say.

Sorry I could not be more helpful!

Sounds great and best of luck to you. Anderson definitely has more prestige across California and the US but USC is extremely strong in the LA area.

USC usually gives out interview invites and decisions later (in comparison to other schools) so I wouldn't worry one bit about not receiving an interview invitation if you have already interviewed at UCLA and UT.

I am looking for a Brand Mgmt in CPG upon graduation as well :) sounds weird but interested in eventually starting a small business--art business actually.
I am sure your creativity and stats will show through and get you where you want to be. Good Luck! Schools are ALWAYS looking for diversity. Sometimes you might have a lot of what they want to see, but you have to show it in 'their words'. Cant say I'm a pro but those're my thoughts.

Just as a note: I was looking at admit411 and most of the R2ers interviewed in mid-March. So, I'd expect we'll hear something by the end of this week or next.

Decisions will be out in 5 weeks, so they'll need to interview soon. About 2 in 3 applicants gets an interview, too.

Just got my email invite to interview. It sounds like they are setting up a big interview day for Saturday, March 20th. Thats quite a ways off, so I think theres lots of time for everyone here to get invited.

They are also doing them the first week in March for those that can't make March 20th.

Good luck everyone. Ill see you there on the 20th.
