Hi all, for those that have received interview invites. Does the wording of their email seem like they prefer on-campus interviews? Other schools make it a point to say they have no preference. Thanks and appreciate any insight.

Received mine yesterday. I think the invites were sent in batches to multiple applicants at the same time, because I was bcc-ed in my email.

Hi all, anyone else planning to do a Skype interview? I indicated this as my preference and am curious how/when they’ll be scheduled.

Saw a post earlier stating interview invites would be coming out "early this week" and seems there were definitely a few Monday and Tuesday. Has anyone been in touch with admissions about duration of the invite period? Does anyone expect invites are dried up at this point?

Thanks

How is everyone's financial planning going on btw? Any insight from admitted students into where/how to take loans? And what is the average loan amount that people take?

I will have to take a loan for everything apart from around 20000/25000 USD that I have saved. This probably means a loan of around 150000-200000 USD. Is this a lot from what others have in plan/really stupid to take considering the risk/impossible to get this kind of amount?

Are Marshall interviews blind or does the interviewer know of your application beforehand?

I spoke to a Marshall current student and she told me many international students take loan from Prodigy. She also said for an international student on a budget, if you manage well you can keep your living costs at around $2k/month. Hope this info helps you.

Thanks. Yeah, I have been looking at Prodigy but the interest rate seem to be exorbitantly high. Do most of the students take a full loan? I am guessing that will take the loan to a mark of around 180000 USD. That along with the interest rate means one will have to pay close to 230000 USD over the years. Am I looking at this the wrong way or is this actually the norm?

I had my Skype interview this Wednesday. Apart from the standard questions of 'Walk me through your resume' and 'Why MBA, Why Marshall', the rest were based on the answers I had given. You can expect a couple of questions around your personal interests and leadership style as well. In the end, you get a chance to ask the interviewer some questions. My interview lasted for a little more than 30 minutes.

It was really conversational and they help you feel at ease. So my advice will be to just be yourself and be prepared about your goals and the reason for wanting to study at USC.

Good luck! :)

Took my interview with Marshall last Thursday and received an email notifying I has been admitted today. The email said it was only a notification sent instead of a phone call because it was past midnight in my time. There will be an official notification from the school and I’m looking forward to it to know what the full package includes.
