If you look at the specialty portion of Marshall's profile of the rankings just released, there isn't a ranking below 20. I really do think that the dip in the overall ranking was due to low employment reports, which was caused by Marshall being without a career services director for a year.

This is true and not something many schools are able to achieve.

I definitely agree with the low employment stats caused by some serious staffing changes being a major factor harming the overall score this year. These changes definitely sound positive and should bring vast improvements to the rankings next year.

I believe this caused a decline last year as well, where the placement record was for worse than this year. However, with an improving economy and a positive trend in MBA hires, the placement had to be better this year. I still do not feel confident and have raised this question to current students as well. Let's see how they respond. :?

Just got my first Acceptance from USC Marshall (Consortium Round 2)! Super excited!!! :-D


Congrat buddy :cool

Also, I've just received interview invitation. It's quite weird since the deadline for R2 notification passed. So excited ^^. Hence for one who hasn't received news, don't lose hope ^^
Btw, could you share your interview experience? how did it come?


Interview was really relaxed. I met with an Adcom member. We went through the resume and just had a discussion about highlights, how USC fits in, why USC, etc. It was a pretty standard MBA interview--nothing to stress about. I do recommend contacting as many student ambassadors as possible to research the school, and then make sure you cite the people you talked to in the interview along with what they said. I think this was the most important aspect--really showing enthusiasm with alot of solid research. Best of luck!

For R3, anybody knows how long does it usually take to hear anything back from the Adcom, like an interview invitation?

Is there a way to see all the USC rankings, i.e. in list form?

I finally got my admissions packet in the mail (Round 2 Consortium). Does anyone (especially from Round 1) know when they send scholarship and financial aid information?

Scholarship/fellowship info is included in the same envelope with your official admission letter. If the envelope only includes the admit letter, you are probably in the same boat I'm in and looking at a full price fare...

Page 9 of this thread:

In the "Class of 2015: Ready to Go" section of the binder, under "Financial Aid: General Information" it states that "Fellowship recipients, both domestic and international, are notified of their award with the official letter of admission from Marshall." This is referring to the personalized admissions letter on the watermarked Marshall letterhead that was in an envelope in the shipping box along with the binder.

Even for R1 it was same(atleast for me). I did not get any mail reg. change in application status. I had to check it through the admission portal on the deadline date. But within next 2-3 days I received mail from AdCom member(interviewer) congratulating me on my admission.
Not sure about others but this is my story.

Does anyone have any suggestions for housing? I have a wife and kid, so I'm prolly looking for a 2/2 apartment thats fairly nice. I don't mind paying, but would love to live as close to on campus as possible. Any advice would be great.

I got an email on the day I was waitlisted asking me to complete additional coursework, which I did, and was told that I would be considered again in Round 2. I think this is unusual though. I would definitely recommend staying on their radar though, so if you have any updates like a promotion, volunteer experience, or a class, send 'em an email now. Fingers crossed for you, peejay!

Thank you so much, rena2013!

I didn't even get an email to check my application update the day decisions came out. I got to know I was waitlisted only when I logged into the portal. I haven't heard anything from the adcom since, I'm guessing since my waitlist is without an interview.

Please do let me know in case you get any updates from them. And good luck to you as well :)

I'm a round 1 waitlistee (w/ interview) and the last email I have from USC adcom was confirming my interview in December. I'm hoping something with happen in April, but I have no reason to believe it will. I spoke to a current student that was admitted from the waitlist, and she was admitted TWO WEEKS before school started. So don't give up hope, but also don't sign a new lease in your apartment, I guess...

I'm also considering asking them to take me off the waitlist and transfer my application to the EMBA program before the June 1st deadline...but I don't want to ask any questions before then, because I'm afraid they'll think I'm not as interested in the full-time program and ding me. I can see the upsides to both programs, and really want to go to USC...but I'm not sure the adcom will see it quite like that. Does anybody have any insight into a situation like this?

Interviewed with a first year student on campus yesterday. It was pretty informal, he asked me
- Walk me thru ur resume
- Why Marshall
- What do you wanna do after Marshall
- What clubs would you like to join at Marshall
- Tell me a time when you resolved a conflict on the team, if it's resolved at all
- Tell me about a time when you didn't reach your goal
- What motivates you?
- Do you have any questions for me?

Hope this helps R3 folks

What's the earliest date I can expect to hear from Marshall after an interview last Sat? The conversation itself went in a pretty lovely way but.... Still a nerve-racking process to way... Also should I expect any phone calls? I'm R2 by the way. Good luck to all!
