Superel: My stats are 3.8 GPA and 620 GMAT, 6 AWA.

Squigglylines: I turned my app in in mid-feb, my file was completed around 3/25 and I was e-mailed regarding an interview on 3/27, and i interviewed the next week.

For those who have been accepted: How long did it take you to receive an e-mail or the program details in the mail?
Also, does anyone know of graduate student housing options?

Thanks!

Hi Knight08 ,

I believe most of those accepted received an on the spot acceptance baring a few..
I was interview last week by Cathy.She said it would take a week for them to make a decision as they have to evaluate my transcripts to consider me an accounting major.

Knight08 : did they give you any time frame? or were you accepted on the spot.Are you from a non-accounting undergraduate?

Anyone who's an accounting major pls share your experience.

mehrotra i am going to summer intensive. i haven't heard back from usc about anything financial so i have no clue regarding financial aid. "no info available" is all i see :cry:

knight08: the grad students that i spoke with both said that the majority of the summer intensive students dorm at usc for the summer and then branch off to off campus apts during the regular school year. i definitely want summer housing and have applied (but haven't heard back).

mehrotra - since you ask so many questions, can you answer mine?

why usc? why accounting? do you want to work for a big 4? how much financial aid have you received? do you have to take summer intensive? what was your gmat? what was your gpa? what do you think about cathy? do you think she's hot? what do you think about the future of accounting? what did you wear to the interview? how was traffic on the 110 on interview day? if you're not from l.a., did you stay in a cheap or expensive hotel? what will you do during your spare time? do you like sc football? do you consider yourself a people person or number person?

please share! please share!

My interview experience was a bit different from everyone else because I'm a reapplicant. I interviewed w/ Shirley, and she asked why I thought I didn't get admitted last year and what I've done to improve myself as an applicant. She also asked why I was applying for the program when I've already taken all the accounting prerequisites and can get a job right now in accounting. We talked about the breakfast and the recruitment process. I think she also asked why tax since I applied for the MBT program. I can't remember what else she asked, but it was pretty specific to my application. She said I would probably get into the program, but she also gave me tips since she said I seemed nervous and a bit monotone. :( I also had to send her updated transcripts, so she told me I won't know until a week.

I think you are on the wrong forum, taking shots at people !! We are sharing information and experience here...If you are concerned on what people wear to the interview, and if you find cathy hot or not, might i mention- it might be a good idea to provide a link of this forum to cathy on and let her know how you think about her..
Let me tell you once more..if you are not willing to respond to answers posted in the forum...either do not respond or just say you cannot answer the question. Keep to the rules of forum.. Do not take shots at people... People will know what kind of a person you are when you get on campus....
If you cant be helpful do not be rude...Lets leave it at that.

Krnxcookie- It took about two weeks for me to receive my acceptance e-mail and CIR info. I called after about a week and they told me to e-mail Shirley. I needed my official acceptance letter for an outside scholarship i applied to, and she got back to me with in a day or two of me e-mailing her.

lucky you krnxcookie. i would have love to move to austin. it'd be nice to get out of cali since i've been here my whole life. and they are one of the top accounting schools. and ausin has been voted top 10 places to live because of cost of living, jobs, etc.

ask80: to make my answer short, i want to pursue a career in tax planning, and i want to make myself a better job applicant. i like tax as well, and i think i would be happier in tax than in auditing.
