I was just wondering if people submitted their essays as one large document into the program-specific tab, or if they split it up into several and submitted the second and third essays as part of the "Additional Documents" upload section.

I uploaded the essays as one document; used the additional documents section for my unofficial transcripts.

Just so I'm clear TOEFL is only for international students from non-English speaking countries correct?

That does not sound right.
From their website: "All international applicants who did not earn a bachelor’s degree from a university in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic. We do not accept scores from the International English Language Testing System( IELTS) exam."

For essay #2, I wanted to talk about clubs and networking with companies etc. However, I thought again about the question, and I believe they are looking for me to explain how my various internship or work experiences will enhance the MBA community.
Do you guys think I concluded it right here? I did not submit my application yet.

I'm toying around with the same issue. I think Clear Admit's guide puts it the best..

Clear Admit wrote:
Essay 2: How will other USC Marshall MBA students benefit from your background, experience, leadership and teamwork skills? (500 words)
Although many applicants end their career goals essay discussing the contributions they would make to a school’s program, USC Marshall’s new second essay question specifically asks candidates to address the ways in which they can give back to the school. This prompt is fairly broad, but applicants should remember to select unique information about their backgrounds, experiences, leadership and teamwork skills to help them stand out to the adcom. Rather than simply addressing how they will contribute to courses, applicants should think of other avenues through which their skills and past experiences would allow them to benefit their fellow students at USC Marshall, i.e. clubs, programs. In such a short essay, it’s probably best to focus your discussion to two or three topics. The emphasis on leadership and teamwork indicates that candidates focus their essay on benefitting other students through collaboration and effective leadership.


My essay touches on the class/curriculum and networking a bit and for the rest of it I'm trying to focus in on clubs and other stuff that I would do in at USC (host massive tailgate parties).

I had my interview yesterday ... I must say it was most casual than what I have had before for other schools... The admissions lady didnot have any idea about my application so I assume it was a blind interview.. I gave my resume and she started with teh usual question -

Tell me about yourself - which I took was more on personal details.
Then I just guided my answer to career path. She had some questions specific to my work.
Then why MBA
Why marshall
What will you bring to Marshall
most intertesting question - What is one thing that someone would mistake about you when they meet you first.
The best advice your mentor has ever given you.
Something in your career that you could back and change ( a situation)

any questions for adcom.

The most surprising thing to me was that teh adcom did not take any notes so I am not sure how she was going to remember all that I spoke in half an hour :)

Overall a relaxed conversational and interesting interview.

All teh best to everyone else!!

My recommender told me there were a couple short answer boxes and then a general recommendation to upload.

I don't know the short answer questions though.
