I didn't get a card in the mail, but I did get an email asking me to submit the supplemental form, which I thought was strange because it's not due until May, so why have people fill it out before they've gotten it? I haven't heard anything about an interview yet

I got a card about this as well, along with a (separate) small pamphlet advertising USC's graduate programs as a whole. I don't think either are related to the Marshall application in particular... they seem to just be general marketing materials. I applied R2 and haven't heard any interview news yet (based in SF).

Marshall >>> UT in California.

UT owns the state of the Texas and has a better presence in the south obviously.

Depends on where you want to live but USC's alumni and networking is also stronger tech wise as well.

Just received an interview invite about an hour ago - very excited! I'm located in NYC, so it looks like invitations are beginning to go out for non-local applicants.

I would have to put some serious thought into that and visit both schools (Haven't been to UT before). For me it would come down to non academic reasons. Would I rather leave LA and live out of state for 2 years (which I have never done) or stay near family and friends. Academically both are good schools and carry a little more weight in their respective states.

Those that were invited to interview this week...were you given only the option of Saturday MArch 20th or during the week next week?

Also, Cyrez8...what are your thoughts on UCSD? I am in a very similar situation as you....

I was given the option for my USC interview.

Also, in regards to UCSD it depends upon where you did your undergrad (I did mine at UCSD) and what you want out of your MBA.

I think UCSD is going to soar in the rankings in 5 years. They are definitely going to be better than UCI and 3rd I believe amongst the UC's behind Cal and UCLA.

The way UCSD has been set up is amazing and the campus/buildings are gorgeous and the faculty is top notch. The entire program has about 150 full-time MBA students so it is very close knit as well.

Tell me a little more about your background, aspirations and I'll give you more information on UCSD.

Hey Cyrez8

Why do you think UCSD is better than UCI and 3rd amongst the UC's? I never even considered the school as they haven't been ranked yet. I would love to hear your reasoning!

Thanks!

hi guys,

i had an interview on sat, feb 20 and just wanted to let everyone know what happened. usc prob isn't my first choice but i have never been to their campus before and my god is it beautiful... my interview was at 9am on saturday which seemed crazy early to me. the woman who interviewed me was an alum and was well spoken, intelligent and personable. I made 1 or 2 mistakes on the interview not being prepared for the answer which i was a little pissed about but wtvr. they didn't ask anything out of the ordinary, it was the standard tell us about your resume/why mba/why now/why usc etc. I do plan on going into a new field after b-school and one of the questions she asked was "other than what u will learn at usc, why would a company in the new field hire you" which i thought was an interesting question.

it was also interesting waiting for the interview with about 6 or 7 other ppl who were applicants and we started talking about our backgrounds.

my stats

690/3 yrs we in marketing/3.7undergrad gpa

good luck to all of you! I had an interview at ucla also and i was also impressed by the guy who interviewed me there. overall, i was left with a pretty good impression of both schools, but even more the campuses which are just incredible.

Rady is NOT the 3rd best UC right now at all.

However, they are poised to be within 5-10 years.

-The campus is gorgeous (1st building completed and 2nd building coming).

-The faculty is top notch b/c they are recruiting some amazing talent with the San Diego beaches/weather

-The Lab-to-Market course series is groundbreaking and is leading to numerous startup companies being created right out of the MBA program

Couple these facts (among others) with the backing of UCSD (which is clearly the 3rd best undergraduate UC behind Cal and UCLA) makes Rady an easy fit for a top 30 ranking in a few years.

Just received an interview invite to San Fran in 2nd week of March. It was a long wait and best of luck to all of you. And yes, I may also have the USC vs UT-Austin Dilemma if I am lucky. Unless I am really lucky and get Duke in my mix. haha

If you guys have specific questions Austin or UT you can post here or PM me. I went to UT undergrad. Austin is an amazing city but its not for everyone. If you're deciding between the two schools it would come down to what you're looking to do afterwords, where you want to work, and what type person you are (would weigh heavily into whether you like LA or Austin better). If you're not so much into the glitz of LA, Austin is much better for someone who is more chill, outdoorsy, and has eclectic tastes.

Fwiw, I did not apply to UT Austin but did apply (and get admitted) to USC. That had to do with two things though. First, post MBA interests. Secondly, and more importantly, my wife is a 4th year med student applying to residency and there are no anesthesia residency programs in Austin. If it weren't for the wife thing I would have applied to UT and been happy to go there since I'm a Texan born and raised and would be happy to stay in Texas the rest of my life.

To the non locals out there, did they give you a choice on where to interview? Do you think its advantageous to go to campus to interview? or interview with the director of admissions in your city, but not go to campus.

I wasn't given a choice(other than 3 dates to pick from), So I will do one in S.F which I am perfectly fine with.
