Anyone looking for housing yet? I ended up being awarded a 50% scholarship, so USC is my likely destination. I still have a Darden interview this Friday, so that might pan out - but if it doesn't, USC is almost for sure where I'm going.

Like a few days after my packet. I didn't think I received anything and then I got a follow up letter. It was very, very surprising!

Just got a call from Ashley Dyer letting me know I got in! R3 applicant. Has anyone from R3 received any news about scholarships or know when to expect this information?

Also, anyone have any insight on whether to go with USC or UCLA for an MBA focusing on entrepreneurship and tech management?

Just PMed you but for the benefit of others:

My stats are: 710 GMAT, 5.5 years work experience as a software engineer in high tech (intel and start up), and significant extracurricular. Also, not sure if it helped or hurt me but I did my undergrad at USC as well

Good luck and I hope you get in!

Have any other R3 applicants heard anything yet? I had an on campus interview in the last week of April as well, but haven't heard anything since.

Have heard nothing yet. Interviewed on that Friday but not concerned yet. Two weeks is the earliest I would expect to hear back.

Are you just logging on to the application web site? Mine just says "Submitted" next to Submission Status. Am I looking in the right place?

From what I can tell, not well. That goes for most of LA. They are building a light rail line that runs from Culver City past campus, but that won't start until 2011. You'll need a car, or a friend with a car.

I'll likely be living in Culver City.

It's about ~20 miles to campus. That's 40 miles round trip per day @ 22 days = 880 miles per month. Say your car gets 20 miles per gallon, that's 44 gallons per month. Let's average $3.10/gallon. That's $136.40/month in gas.
