Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I would have to disagree with that. If the lady tells me not to consider retaking the GMAT, from my understanding this means that if I get a 700 it is not going to improve my application much. But I guess we can only wait and see.
^ I was in your situation not too long ago. Thinking back, I think I was only asked 2 core questions:
-Why accounting? <-- major topic of interview -How do you think you'll do in our program?
Minor things that I remember:
-Why did you choose your email address and what is the meaning behind it? <--- -How did you study for the GMAT?
The interview process at USC (in my opinion) is more of an assessment of the candidate's sanity--it's their way of making sure you are not a lunatic/psycho. I think it stops there. I don't think the interview process significantly influences the candidate's chances of getting in (unless, again, you are just obviously dumb or crazy). A grad student gave me a tour after the interview and he said that his interview last year lasted less than 5 mins on the phone, which supports my hypothesis in my opinion.
I also applied for USC for Fall 2008 and am waiting for them to contact me.
Congrats on your acceptance Silver!
Could you guys tell me how long it took for them to contact you about setting up an interview after you submitted your application? Also, yes, please share your interview details (i.e. what you wore, how they notified you that you were accepted, etc).
For the people who were accepted or received an interview at USC, could you please tell me your stats so I know my chances? Thanks!!
I applied to the program on Nov, 25 and was interviewed and accepted on Jan 31. My interview was over the phone and it was only about 15 minutes long. At the very end of the interview, Cathy asked me if i had any other questions and then told me i had been accepted. My stats are: 670 Gmat 3.12 GPA Accepted in the Summer 08 program
Does anyone know where to find the USC Macc program student profile w/ average gmat scores and gpa? I couldn't find it on their website. The only profile I found was for the Marshall MBA program. Thanks in advance!
I don't think they actually have the information on their website. But when i met with Cathy, she gave me a print-out of the admission stats. I don't have the paper anymore but i believe that the average gmat was in the 650's and the GPA was around 3.4
