Hi Everyone,

I have been waitlisted w/o interview. Please guide me through the process to move up the list.

Should I drop a mail to get feedback regarding the same? If no, supplement document to strengthen my case should include what things? Also, will a recommendation letter from my supervisor strengthen my case? I have my sister who is an alum from USC, should I ask her to endorse/support my candidature?

Arpit.
Certainly contact AdCom.
Of course, with you being WL w/o an interview is a little hard nut to crack, a WL is still better than no a ding.
I'd suggest criticize your own application first - yourself and have a third party do the same. Identify the weak links and develop a plan to improve upon.
At that time contact adcom asking their feedback, your identified weak areas and your plan of how you are going to overcome / strengthen weakness in your application.
Of course, your sister is an alum is in your favour. Is she from Marshall or other school? Marshall would help you a lot more.
Ask guidance in that regards too, to the adcom.

All the best.

Thanks for the guidance. Yes my sister is a Marshall Alum. Marshall didn't take recommendation this year. So should I support my application with that? Additionally, when I go through my application, I feel that admission committee will be a bit skeptical about me making a transition from IT to Investment Banking. Should I highlight the fact that I am working on my finance foundation and by the time I join USC Marshall then I would have appeared my CFA Level 3. At the same time, I have contacted an existing 2nd year student, who has made similar transition recently. Should I talk about plan B, if needed?

Please provide your inputs.

Hi ! The interview is pretty straightforward. Make sure that you know your resume in and out.
Also, be confident and take your time and think on your feet if asked any question that you didn't expect. The interview is like a conversation so don't forget to smile and make eye contact!

My interview questions were:
Resume walkthrough, goals, leadership style, questions specific to my experience, how I spend my weekends/ leisure time, why marshall.

All the best!!!

Additionally, when I go through my application, I feel that admission committee will be a bit skeptical about me making a transition from IT to Investment Banking. Should I highlight the fact that I am working on my finance foundation and by the time I join USC Marshall then I would have appeared my CFA Level 3. At the same time, I have contacted an existing 2nd year student, who has made similar transition recently. Should I talk about plan B, if needed?

Please provide your inputs.



Well, this would by my own ideas so take them with grain of salt.
To be honest, no recommendation was a reason I applied to Marshall.. ahahaa.. JK.
But yes, mention that if you ever visited Marshall - even unofficially (visiting sister, may be?). Of course show them you are involved with CFA III (if your level I and II were great grades, hightlight them too).
But What I think (again, I THINK) the problem is the transition. Other than CFA, what have you done to move into that area? I mean, study is just one person job - do you have network, do you know what firms to target, and again, being on West Coast for that field has (however minute) some dis-advantages. How will you overcome that?
Contact the current student - most certainly and find out what did he do to convince the AdCom that it was the right move. Ask him for networking opportunities. If you haven't been to campus, try and see if it is possible to visit them (that is if possible for you).
Cliche it is, but sound interested but not desperate!!

Plan B is a good idea but in my personal opinion, don't talk about it unless asked. It MAY sound like you are looking at a back plan already (when you initiate it) but if they ask and you have one you may look like a 'prepared' one. But again, that is my idea. In your case it may help too, IF that (transition) is the obstacle.

Anyway, all the best. Would love to know how it goes.

Hiren.

I haven't received the official package by mail yet, so not sure. Nothing's mentioned in the email though!

Thanks..
Hehe.. I registered when I was in the final year of my engineering or just after that.. just been following the various forums every now and then :) This year I applied and got through.. so looking to connect with future classmates and share exp/learning with those who are in the process.

Work-wise i shifted industries over the last 9 years moving from IT to business development and strategy in media and entertainment.
