Waitlisted folks...would love to hear from you if there's been any change to your status or if you don't mind sharing your strategies for getting off the WL.


im R1 waitlisted and didn't hear anything from adcom. basically i think the strategy basically is submit the letter show ur strong interest or another recommendation letter. the more important thing is secure a safty school and dont put too much hope on waitlist schools. just my personal thought. what is ur profile?

28/680/5 WE/domestic at LA
Yeah, I am going to submit a personal letter and a letter of rec from someone - hopefully I'll find a USC alum or even current student (I know a girl who is at Marshall now - we went to undergrad together - but I don't know if she'd be willing to vouch for me since we weren't that close). Someone on the BW forums suggested using Darden as leverage since I have an offer from them - I'll tactfully mention it in the letter.

Stats are 27/720/3.3-3.4 from a UC school for a year and a liberal arts school for three, plus additional classes at UCLA Extension/6 WE/L.A. for 13.5 years, Russia for the other 13.5. I think my interview got me bumped as the alum whom I talked to was very keen on pointing out the weaknesses in my job history as related to my intended concentration (marketing; I'm a career-switcher).

I just got Marshall admission notice in the morning. Very excited. But I also have Georgetown admission, with $10,000/year scholarship. It is hard to choose b/w these two schools. Any one have any insights for these two schools? Especially in terms of job placement and alum network for future.

Good luck to everyone who is still waiting for the message.

Congrats! Both are solid schools -- but the key question here is do you see yourself more likely to be out on the east coast or on the west coast? I would suggest looking at the stats for alumni distribution from the schools website that should help.

Thanks to johnac97 .

You are right that graduates from G'town mostly work at the east cost, while that of Marshall mostly at the west cost. I like west cost very much, especially the weather. But DC is a very great area too. And it seems that job placement of Marshall of 2009, only around 75% graduates found jobs, is bad, compared to above 90% for G'town.

I went to Gtown admit weekend for R1 and the 90% figures were inflated...it was more like high 70%'s. They provided a new report to us amd I honestly don't recall if it was a typo in the original (87 vs 78%) data or what, but it was definietly closer to 80% than 90%. Sorry this is vague....

Also, I interviewed yesterday via Skype (they took foreeeever to get back to be about an itnerview, so this was my only hope since I travel for work and couldn't carve out any mid-week dates), and they said I'd know either tomorrow or next Tuesday

Totally depends on where you want to be career wise. West Coast? East Coast?

Simple decision from there.

USC, no brainer

USC absolutely dominates the LA market and has a great West Coast brand

I applied because I loved my time at USC, it's a great school with a lot of opportunity, I'm just kind of wondering how much weight I should place on the fact that I went there undergrad...

USC's network absolutely destroys Emory's.

Having an MBA from USC will only strengthen your "Trojan" prestige amongst alumni...etc.

No brainer.

CalBear.. I was admitted to Gtown R2 but won't be able to attend the admit weekend.. If you get a chance can you talk about the experience.. What did Gtown put on for you guys and what were your take aways from the experience? btw I am not making any decisions or developing any insight other then just your opinion... I am just super curious as to what you thought about the current students, the other admitted students, faculty etc etc or whatever else they put on the stage during the first admit weekend.

thanks
