Had my interview on 25/11/2017 in Mumbai. Had a different experience than what people have posted here as my interviewer had read my essays before I came. The questions were:

- Walk me through your resume
- Elaborate on the short term goals mentioned by you in your essay and how will USC help you achieve them?
- How does your company differentiate itself from its competition (As I am from a family business background)
- Tell me about your greatest achievement
- Tell me about the biggest obstacle/ challenge you faced in your life outside work
- According to you, what are the top 3 qualities of a great leader
- How do you embody the number 1 quality you feel a leader should have
- Do you have any questions for me

Overall the interview was very conversational and ended in 30 mins on the dot. The interviewer was mindful to leave sufficient time for any questions that I may have.

Congrats to all those who got admits! Since USC is a pretty expensive MBA program, I was wondering if you all were handed out scholarships as well?

Did Marshall release all acceptances yesterday or will more arrive in the coming days?

Also- did anyone notice a change to their application status?

There are candidates still interviewing so more should arrive in the coming days.

I was accepted but there has been no change to my application status in my USC portal.

I got admitted last week to USC with roughly 90k of scholarship. USC is my safety school (I am based in SoCal, so I applied to UCLA too, naturally), if I get an admit from UCLA, could I negotiate that they bump my scholarship to twice the amount? Generally, how do I got about negotiating scholarship and/or scholarship bumps?
