I'm in for Round 1.

Does anyone know you can still get into Marshall if you are not offered an interview? I just need to know if I should discount USC if I don't hear anything from them shortly after the 1st. Thanks!

No, Marshall interviews 100% of the admitted applicants. In other words, if you aren't interviewed you won't be admitted. Still, according to their Business Week profile, they interviewed 60% of the applicants last year.

When I visited the campus and met with admissions, they basically told me that it was more of a commuter campus and folks drove in from the city (not surprising given that it is LA). I don't think you should expect to find many of your MBA classmates in the nearby USC area. That was just my impression though, when I visited.

There's a pretty wide age range in the Marshall MBA class IMO, and I would think your personal situation will heavily factor into the experience. From what I've heard there's a Marshall student social organization that hosts social events with the other grad schools (Keck in particular), and if you're into sports, wait until you see Gameday on campus. Now that 'SC is down, it's not quite the same (I finished undergrad in 2008), but it's still a spectacle, and a lot of fun - and also a a topic of conversation with future employers. I wouldn't be too concerned about the lack of a physical community, I think you'll still definitely find that there is a strong sense of community. I don't think the housing in downtown is actually that expensive if you are able to find a roommate - at the Orsini you can find two BDR's for under $2k, and it is a gorgeous building. One of the great things about LA is its diversity, and housing is no exception.

I visited Marshall earlier this year, and I think I remember a member of the admissions staff telling us that a small number of people are admitted each year that are not interviewed, and that you won't know if you are one of this group until the final decision date.

Well if that's the case then the admissions officer I talked with, their own website, as well as Business Week were wrong. Still, who knows? Either way, the best chance is with an interview. Also, I can only speak about what was published regarding last year's admissions as it's entirely possible that some few made it in from prior years.

I know there is another person that also was invited to interview as they are going to be visiting the USC campus around the time that the invites will be going out. I guess the admissions is really into taking advantage of timing when possible.

The admissions office had a problem with sending those weeks ago, at least according to them when I called. I wouldn't be surprised if they were just finally getting around to sending out the official emails in prep for the invites tomorrow. Current Student Status: What's your raashee?

She did say the majority should be trickled out today by 5pm pst BUT there could be some more tomorrow as well. So basically if you don't hear anything today or tomorrow it is most likely a ding. Good luck peeps(and myself!)! I'd be willing to bet that you'll get an invite. Good luck.

Yeah, not a peep so far. I would have thought something would happen by now but there's still a few hours left, and always tomorrow as well.
