Didn't see any threads for Marshall this year. Just wondering who out there is also applying to Marshall. I applied for the R1 deadline on Nov 1 and just received an interview invite.

Would love to chat with anyone else who is applying or has also received an interview invite.

What are your stats?

If you don't get an interview invite by the end of this week, it will be time to start "sweating".

They told me (3 days ago on Friday) a big bulk of non-local interview invites will go out this week along with a few more local invites.

I'll be sweating in about 2 weeks for USC since it sounds like they don't trickle out more interviews all the way up until the end of March decision deadline like other top schools like Stanford, Cal, UCLA...etc.

How do you feel about possibly spending so much more at USC (if you dont get a scholarship)?

Anyone else have any opinions about Marshall (no aid) and Jones (1/2 off)? My background is engineering (energy sector) but Im undecided about what I want to do after getting my MBA.

Thanks!


I'm not sure! I'm likely not going to get aid from USC since they seem to only offer 1/2 scholarship offers (and up), so I'll be in the same situation.

For you, I'd say go to Rice since they are huge in energy. Houston is the heart of energy and, if they had a program for my SO, I would have applied since I have a background in energy. I think they are vastly under-ranked (similar to BC) and a heck of a school on the rise. But you'll be limited to Houston and Houston alone pretty much.

If you want something outside of energy work, consider USC. USC is really strong in marketing and real estate - and if you want to work in the Pacific Rim it's a phenomenal program. Also, accounting and finance are quite strong. You'll have more options out of USC in various sectors - but energy isn't one of them. Again, USC is pretty regional and you'll need to be in LA.

You'll make marginally more money out of USC to start but Houston is insanely cheaper to live in than LA. So, you're saving roughly 45k on tuition plus another ~15-20k in living expenses by choosing Rice. Starting salaries are about 3k higher on average at USC (something easily made up by the COL difference in California). So, is USC, its alumni pool, and greater flexibility worth 60-65k more than Rice?

I mostly like BC and they gave me a 2/3 scholarship. I'm just worried about career prospects.


Well congrats on your admits.

Im still waiting on a couple of schools, but so far Ive been admitted to Marshall and Jones (Rice University) with a 50% scholarship. How do you feel about possibly spending so much more at USC (if you dont get a scholarship)?

Given your background in energy + how the 2 schools compare in terms of tuition costs and living expenses + aid -- I would be strongly inclined towards Rice

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?

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

I was wondering if anyone else out there was applying to Marshall!

I applied R1 as well. Haven't heard anything yet. When did you get your interview invite? Also, are you going to interview on campus, off campus, or over the phone?

Got the invite today. The wording of the email didn't really give me an option in terms of interviews other than on-campus. Basically said we'd like to invite you to campus to interview, select a day etc. Wonder what it means if they said to come to campus.

Curious about what prompted you to apply to Marshall and what you're interested in doing. Good luck to you!

I also got my R1 interview invite yesterday (11/23). I imagine we got the same email. Do you know if USC offers phone or off-campus interviews? Taking time off from work and coming from the east coast would be a hassle (especially since I've already visited the campus).

I'm interested in consulting and entrepreneurship. I applied to USC because of its location.

Don't know if they do or not. I suppose you could probably ask. I'd be curious what they say. I'm somewhat in the same boat since I'd be coming from Texas and have already visited campus as well. I scheduled an interview because I was already going to be in LA for the National Championship Game (Hook 'em Horns!) but it might just be easier if I had the option of a phone or off campus interview.

Unhedged redirected me here - I was just clicking around on interesting links without looking at the dates.

What are schools of a similar competitive profile that receive recruiters from Wall Street?
