No , they did not stop the video interviews this year , everyone who applied for PM got the invite and it says its optional ( should have a deadline as well).

Hey guys,

How are the round 1 interviews, round 2 applications and the all around waiting games coming along??

For all those who have already submitted their applications, please keep us posted on your admissions progress. Quick write ups summarizing your interview experiences (interview format, questions asked, general mood, etc), application updates (interview invites, final decisions, scholarship offers, etc) and any other news or helpful info uncovered from speaking with the admissions department or students is all extremely valuable insight. This info is beneficial not only for current applicants but also for applicants in future rounds as well as future admission seasons.

Thanks a lot, excellent work so far and good luck to all the other hopeful Trojans out there!

Completed my interview last week. The interview was conducted over SKYPE by a member of the admissions team. The questions were pretty similar to the ones posted by others in this thread.

Walk me through your resume.
Why did you decide to pursue an MBA?
What are your short term goals and long term goals?
Why Marshall?
What is your leadership style?
Any questions for me?

The interview lasted just over half an hour. At the end he asked me to check on Feb 1 for the results and wished me luck.

When I talked with an admissions officer after I got waitlisted, I got the impression January would be a little later because of the holidays. I'm thinking next week at the earliest. Just what I gathered.

Kyle--for us waitlisters--when you called did you ask how they will notify waitlisters? Meaning, do you think they will notify every month at the same time as when they release new decisions? Good luck btw, let's hope we get some movement.

I know we are reconsidered during every round, and if we are accepted or declined we will receive notification. Unfortunately when I had her on the line, I forgot to ask if our waitlist status would be updated monthly. (ie, whether we receive the same waitlist update at the beginning of every month, if we aren't accepted or declined.) Since we are sort of evaluated "fresh" every round, I'm thinking that we will be notified whether accepted, further purgatory, or dinged.

Good luck to you, too!

Don't know... I applied in November, so I'm waiting for my response.. I hope I get admitted today as it would make for a more pleasant weekend.

I just spoke to Kelly at USC. She was very polite, she looked up my file (Nov Applicant), and she stated that decisions will be out by the end of the week. From the sound of her voice it sounded like there was already some sort of decision in my file. However, I couldn't tell if it was good or bad for me.

I second Kyle: Thanks for the update, Racer!

This all sounds very positive to me. Would Kelly be so helpful, polite and suggestive that your decision has been made if she was looking at a bad result? Then again, the Marshall adcom has always been very pleasant to deal with... Hopefully, your waiting game will come to an end with some good news by Friday!

Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks APEX, Kyle & SLR... Don't give up. USC told me $2500 deposit due by March 1. Now it looks like I might have to call UCLA and attempt some lobbying in order to get off the waitlist.
