Hi All,

Thanks,

Re: Calling all USC Marshall Applicants: (2016 Intake) Class of 2018!! [#permalink]
In the app instructions, for all international students it is mentioned to provide a finance proof statement saying that we can afford the tuition. I am kinda confused by this. All the other colleges ask for this only after admission for the processing of i20. For Marshall, do we really need to submit this along with the application ? Can any international students help me out with this ? Thanks.

This.

Also, on their Application Instruction page it says:

We encourage applicants to upload unofficial transcripts to the on-line application. However, while the Admissions Committee can review an application with unofficial transcripts, a final decision cannot be rendered until official transcripts have been received and evaluated.

Do we need to send official transcripts during the application phase? This is generally required post admission decision.

Hi Shavak,
I wrote to them and they replied saying that we need not submit the financial forms until after the admission.

Hey Souvilibra,

It looks like you put it all in one document, since the site says "Program-Specific Essays" next to the button for uploading. And there's only one place to upload essays, the other buttons are for "Additional Documents".

Hope that answers your question.

Hey Guys,

Can someone throw light on the reapplication process for Marshall? I'd emailed the admissions office and they said the information would be available on the application itself, but I haven't found it.

Regards,
Tanay.

Hi,
I am new here.
Profile (by aug 2016)
WE: 43 months (In advertising, ad films, short films, movies, marketing)
GMAT: 710
Age: 23

So USC is one of the many colleges i have applied to. Managed to submit all the documents by R1 (on the deadline itself). This is my priority college owing to its excellent alumni, location & ranking.

Just wanted to know if anyone received any interview calls ?

Hoping against all odds to get in here. Let me know if anyone else get a calll

Cheers.

Re: Calling all USC Marshall Applicants: (2016 Intake) Class of 2018!! [#permalink]
Got my application in for round 1! I'm both excited and nervous. Based on last year's thread, it seems like R1 folks got invitations for interviews in the November 15th range.

USC is definitely my first choice as it fits what I'm looking for. Hoping that came through in the 700 words for essay #1!

JS5D - based on your experience last year and now being at Marshall for a bit, have you learned anything about what the admissions department looks for specifically ? Looking for anything to help me get through these next few weeks !

No. I applied Round 1 and nothing yet.

FYI I was talking to a current 1st year student who said he applied round 1 last year.
He said he couldnt remember exactly when his interview was, but it was sometime in november.
