FYI, this thread is almost 3 years old. I would repost your question in a totally new thread so that everyone can see you question more easily.

There are really too many factors to be considered to tell you about how your GPA will affect your chances. To be clear though, there are many people that have gotten into top schools with low GPA's. Not only can the GMAT help you overcome that, but every other part of your application. A 2.99 is not a death sentence at all. Plus, the farther you get away from undergrad, the less your GPA matters. You also have your CPA, which is a plus, and in most cases will allow you to skip some classes when you get your MBA.

For you to get a better answer I would pose your question here ask-admission-consultants-124/ and give as much info as you can. Include:

Age
Work experience
Desired schools
GMAT score
GPA
Extracurriculars
Etc....

With this information, you will get great responses. Also, you mentioned that you are planning on getting a 700. With the GMAT being such an important part of your application, it is hard to say how you application will look without having it completed yet. A 700 is no easy task, and could take 100s of hours of studying. It might be worth while putting all your effort towards the GMAT, and start considering the rest of your application once you have that in the bag. 700+ in 90th percentile and above, you're competing with talented individuals from around the world. the difference between a 650 and 700 is large, but may only be a few questions on test day. Give us some more info, put your post in the right area, and I'm sure you'll get some great advice.

Also, to help show you that you can have success, here is an example of admissions with low GPAs. profiles-admitted-to-top-b-schools-w-low-gmat-or-low-gpa-73999.html?kudos=1 and here low-undergrad-gpa-success-stories-79977.html Do a search on GMAT club, there are plenty of places to see advice and boost your confidence. Good luck!

badini0891,

Thank you for your response.

I am really nervous.
Is there any other thread(s), which working on USC interview?

You know this thread is really old?

But anyway, the interview isn't something to freak about. Just relax. I interviewed with Shirley and she's very friendly. Be yourself. A few questions they asked that I remember off the top of my head are:
1) Why Accounting?
2) What are your plans after the MAcc?

they also asked a few questions that are really easy to answer like:
- why did you apply to the schools you applied to? and how are you going to chose the school you would want to go to?
- did you get any admits yet?

Those are a few questions I remember. The rest of the interview was more of her explaining about housing and things about the program itself rather than her asking me questions. She also asked me if I had any specific questions about the program so think about things you'd like to ask her.

I felt from the interview that they already wanted to admit me. The interview felt more like just an assurance that you're actually a good candidate. She even told me at the end of the interview "we'll let you know about our decision in two weeks, but it's most likely a yes anyway."

Good luck in the interview (to both of you) and tell us how it goes :) hope to see you in the program in June (or August if you're a Fall applicant) !

I am not sure when Shirley asks me "do you have any questions for me?" what should i ask her? Almost i know every thing i need! In addition, i wont tell her "no question, thank you!"

Any idea?

badini0891, thank you

I am gonna ask her about the relationship of students and professors to involve in practical projects or writing papers, as MACC does not have any thesis. Is this suitable?

Did you be interviewed only by voice or video conference held?

Shirley will interview me on Mar. 26, '12.

Yes, that seems fine in my opinion. My interview was a video call through skype. She's really easy-going. You'll like her :)

Just had my interview with Shirley.

I agree with the posters above, she was very friendly and easy going, definitely made me feel comfortable.

Some advice: Know your resume really well, have a few questions prepared for her, and know your reasons for pursuing accounting.

Thats awesome ccn! Congrats!

How long is it taking USC to invite you for the interview after you apply? I completed my application on March 1 and haven't heard from them yet and I'm getting a little nervous. My stats aren't really great or really bad, just kind of in the middle.

GPA
UC San Diego 3.6
San Diego CC 3.14 (I was a transfer student)
Cumulative around 3.35

GMAT 680 (90% verbal/60%quant)
4.5 AWA

How long did it take you guys to hear from USC regarding the interview invite or rejection notice : (
How do my stats look?

Initiative ability review phrases

Positive
• We appreciate how Jim approaches situations with a “can do” attitude.
• Koo consistently takes initiative in difficult situations and finds a resolution.

Negative
• Fred does not step forward when new tasks or projects arrive and always relies on other people to take a chance.
• Peter lacks the confidence necessary to try new things and take on new tasks.
