Just had my hub interview in SF this morning.

Tell me about yourself, something not on your resume.
Tell me about your role at your current job.
Tell me more about the start-up you are doing (he was obviously interested in that aspect of my resume)
What are your goals, and why do you want an MBA.
Why Marshall. -- all with in 30 min

That was all the questions. I thought there would be more but... then I filled rest of the time slot(20min) by asking question, about the campus, activities, etc.

Overall, I think it went well, and USC will notify its 2nd round students after April 1st. No message will be given before then. No email either, you will have to log in online to check your status. Also, they cannot make a decision until you submit official transcript. These are few of the extra things I learn. Hope this helps.

Got the basic questions as well, nothing tricky, and probably the most conversational interview i've had with any school, lasted about 45 minutes, with a 30/15 split

- Started off by going into my work experiences
- Why did you choose your undergraduate school
- Why MBA, Why USC? (incorporated ST/LT goals)
- How would you use skills gained to achieve your goals
- What would you add to the class at USC
- What do you do in your free time

Wow. I just received an interview invite from Marshall about 10 minutes ago.

International, East Asia, M, 720, 5 year WE, 3.6 GPA from top 10 undergrad b-school

Booth, dinged w/o int
Haas, no signs of anything, so probably a ding
Kellogg, interviewd and waiting
Ross, interviewd and waiting
Anderson, interviewed and waiting

So Marshall is still sending out interview invites. Good luck to all!

Sorry to hear about the dings. Good luck with your other schools.

For those that got offered a scholorship, where was the letter? I'm guessing in the welcome packet. I just got my little and big envelopes yesterday but sadly no $$$, so I'm hoping there might be a third envelope that you received. Otherwise I will be poor so drinks are on you over-achievers! :-D

I am applying R2 from SE Asia and have not hear anything yet for an interview.

F /740/ 8 yr work exp in tourism industry--currently a trainer/ math&hist major with honors from mid-level school/ heavy international work experience (but not all of it in a traditional business environment).

I just was offered a big promotion to my boss's job and they want to know by the end of this week.

Would it be worth it to call the admissions office to find out if I am being considered or have already been put aside?

My interview invitation email mentioned that one of their adcom members (Senior Associate Director, Sheryl Schreiber) is touring Asia right now for interviews. She will be touring my country next week, so I think that's why I received my invitation this late.

I have no idea when she will be visiting your country/region, but I think it would be OK to contact the adcom if urgent.

Based on your stats, I would be very surprised if Marshall was not interested in accepting you.

Have any round 2 applicants (non Consortium) received ding notifications? If so, what format? Email or checked the application status page?

Thanks.

Just got my interview invite last night, have the option of on campus interview or phone/skype. I live in texas, so it will be a bit of a pain for me to get to LA in the next two weeks, normally I would do it anyway no questions asked, BUT, I have actually already visited campus, done a class visit ect. My question is, how much of an advantage do you think it is to get to campus again and do it in person, or do you think a skype interview would be just as good since I've already visited the school.

I had the same question.

I was only given the option of a phone/skype interview. Although I would prefer this, do you think that it would be advantageous to request a campus visit and fly to LA in the next 2 weeks? I live in the Middle East.

Thoughts anyone? Thanks!

Hey all-

I got an email last night inviting to interview. Keep up hope! Just curious, do you think I should interview as early as possible? Will it hurt my chances the longer I wait? I'm going to be on the road when they open up interviews, and I'd rather be back home when I talk to someone. If I waited, it would be almost at the end of the interview round, and it makes me break out in a cold sweat thinking about people taking up slots because they interviewed earlier. Thoughts? Thanks and good luck to everyone still waiting.

If you haven't visited the campus and USC is at the top of your list, then you should mention this to them and see if you have a campus interview option.

In terms of your chances of getting in, it won't make a difference as they realize you are in the Middle East.

Request a campus interview for YOUR benefit of seeing the school but not if you think it will increase your chances of getting in.

Still no news here - I guess I'm pretty much out. A little surprised to not even get an interview, but this whole thing is a crapshoot in the end.

Anyone else having a problem logging in to the application today? This link which I've been using the whole time now goes to a blank page:

I don't think it's too late. Someone got an invite earlier today. The site's up now. Double check. Nothing on my page has changed, though. Now I'm kind of paranoid that they accidentally emailed me instead of someone else.

Congrats! People definitely shouldn't be out of hope yet since there is another solid week of invitations (next week) that will go out.
