How do people find roommate/ housing in LA? Is there a forum for people to discuss housing options/ finding roommates?


I believe there is a section for this on the admitted students website. I saw it referenced in the binder but haven't actually visited the site yet.


There's indeed one, like a forum under the new admitted welcome page. Probably the best bet for you to find a roomy if you want to live with a classmate

Hello, Round 3 applicant here and I just received an email from Marshall regarding financial aid deadlines. Does anyone know if this is a formality for all applicants? I don't want to start celebrating prematurely!!!

Sorry for the delayed response, CaliforniaIllini but it looks like this was a generic email blast to everyone on Marshall's distribution list (I received it as well). Good luck in round 3!

Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster.

Anyways, I am a 3rd round applicant for Marshall and I have not heard ANY update since submitting my application on 3/12 (besides standard financial aid stuff). Is it safe to assume that I have been dinged? No phone calls, no emails, nothing... I have sent an email the adcom and here is their reply,

"Hello Anthony,

Thank you for your email. We have sent our first wave of interview invitations. However, we continue to review applications and a candidate can be invited at any time in the process until a final decision is rendered.

Decision notifications will be posted to your application beginning May 17th."

The only login that works for me is the application login and it just says my application has been successfully submitted...

Any help or insight is very much appreciated

edit: also, I noticed that no applicants have been officially "dinged", they are at worst, waitlisted... why is Marshall jerking us around...

Just stay patient and there will likely be some movement soon. The deposit deadline for round 2 accepted applicants was yesterday. As many people like myself choose not to pay the deposit spots will continue to open up for people in round 3. I also received a 50% fellowship, so hopefully that gets passed on to someone else as well.

Good luck!

I definitely wouldn't interpret this as a ding. Marshall has a unique admissions process and the final round (3) will be the least predictable of all as they round out the class. While most applicants are invited to interview and rendered decisions on the published dates, others have been invited to interview just days before the decision date and some have even been interviewed and accepted on the same day.

There's no telling what the admissions department is going to do this late in the game so your best bet is to relax, sit back and think positive. Good luck!

For those that were invited to interview in any round, how many of you were offered a place/accepted versus how many were dinged or waitlisted?

Siddharth - Like most schools, Marshall only considers your best GMAT score so if you feel you can do better than a previous score, it is generally a good idea to retake the exam. Some people even suggest that multiple GMAT attempts show determination... Regardless, there is no harm in retaking the GMAT in order to boost your score.

007 - Your best bet will be to take a look at the applicant tracking stats on the first page of this thread (marshall-2013-usc-calling-all-applicants-140155.html).

Keep in mind that these stats are purely based on user-reported data. There are quite a few candidates with an "Unknown Final Decision" who reported submitting an application but did not update their profile on this site since. Also, based on the nature of this forum, users are much more inclined to report exciting news such as interview invites or acceptances than the alternatives. This should give you an idea on how this data should be interpreted.

Is there a website or link someone can provide me where it shows the status of an application? I do not mean the application submission link (where you do the actual application) but a page or portal with an applicants admissions status.

I believe you are referring to the same page. The online application portal where you submit your application and view your application status is the same system that displays your admission status.

This is what the home page looks like (after you log in) when a decision has been rendered:

Ahh thank you. As expected, mine has YET to change from the date I submitted it (3/12). Disappointed in the lack of communication and efficiency on a program wanting to return to top tier status.

All admission actions have been taken on or before the dates posted on the Marshall website this application season. Marshall has been very good about playing it by the book, following their published schedule and not playing games. Can't ask for much more than this to keep applicant anxiety at bay.

Anthony, Marshall like every other b-school does not notify of your decision until the decision release date. Then the new status of your application will be posted.
As of right now you should have an idea of your status if you were invited or not for an interview. Decisions - as listed on the website - will be posted on May 17.
One more week! Good luck!
