I'm with you...I didn't see a place for extracurriculars. I might add it to additional documents. As for the transcripts, i put it under the schools, NOT in the additional documents. WHy did you put it there?

I included extra-curriculars in my resume, I didn't really do a separate list. My transcript went into the Education section underneath where I enter data for schools.

My extracurriculars post-college have been pretty much zero due to my job, so I guess I will add to my resume, otherwise an extracurricular page on its own may look pretty sad.

I guess I should put the transcript in the academic info section, I wasn't sure since there's a note on transcripts in the additional info section. I uploaded an electronic official copy of my transcript, but I wonder if I will need to submit a hard copy - I graduated from Marshall in 08, so I would think that would be enough, but who knows.

I put in a request for my transcripts to be sent along just in case since they say something about needing official transcripts to process the application. I think it mentions that in the instructions somewhere, not totally sure though.

Hmm, I mentioned my two main extracirriculars in my essays. Each have a paragraph. Do you think that's enough?

hey I'm new here, I've applied to USC as well. I am applying to their MBA/MRED dual degree program. I am in for Round 2. I was wondering if anyone here sent in their transcript before the deadline. Apparently the USC ID is required on the form. However it will not arrive until 7 days from now??? Do they accept late transcripts?

I recently had my interview on campus and I don't have much to add to what Beautifulmind posted earlier in terms of questions. Yes, it is very laid back with no oddball questions. I was also surprised that the interviewer did not actually write anything down and just listened. It was very conversational in nature and if you know your story you should do fine. Good luck to you all!

@sweatytofu I didn't send the official transcript to the USC office during the submission. I sent them an email asking if my application was complete and the answer was yes. After the interview, the interviewer told me to send them the transcript (by post) because the decision will not be rendered if they don't have the official one on hand. So I think it's just part of documentation and filing and etc. I think you can send them an e-mail, just like what I did.

Had my interview last week on campus. Pretty laid back with no real off the wall type questions either.. Not much to add beyond what greennamek and Beautifulmind had.

Best of luck everyone!

I was just wondering when we are supposed to send official transcripts. Are you guys waiting until you get accepted to send them?

I applied in round 2, paid the application fees. I got an email confirmation from usc that my application has been submitted. But when I login to the applyyourself application website, it says my application has not been submitted yet. All the fields are blank. What is this? Anybody else had this issue?

I think you should call them up. I applied R2 also, when I log into the site everything there says "Submitted" and has the following text:
Thank you for your application! Please check this status screen for notification of a decision and for information regarding any items that may still be required to complete your application for review.

I did undergrad from India, my transcripts are not yet with me, but as soon as I get them (hoping next week) I will send it out asap and as fast as possible :) .... Looks like they will not let out the decision on Feb 1-2 until they have my transcripts.

Hope this helps!

I would recommend the same ...calling the Admissions, this might just be a technical issue at the site.

E-mail apply yourself...they'll probably have it fixed the same day. I've requested help from applyyourself two times in the past and they e-mail me back within a couple hours.
