Hi fellas,

I just got my acceptance notification today. Although, there was no mention of a scholarship in the decision letter. I'm afraid it would be next to impossible to attend the program without any $. I sent over a mail that mentions the same. Do you think I have a shot at getting some $? What is the trend that is typically observed with Marshall(if you know)?


What I've observed so far is that Marshall was generous with scholarships in R1. But most of the Indian folks, whom I'm in contact with, have not received any aid in R2. So it can either be the case that maybe they'll send scholarship information in a separate email or it can be that they have less funds in R2. The former is unlikely, since I was told by the head of adcom that all scholarship decisions are conveyed with the admit letter. You can send a mail asking them to clarify if you really have no scholarship, but I'm not sure whether it is the right thing to do.

As for scholarship negotiations, Marshall is tough to negotiate with. I've heard it from current students; tried and failed myself. One of the applicants in R1 got a feedback to improve his GMAT score to be considered for higher amount, but that may not be applicable to all.

What were the failed people leveraging for the scholarship reconsideration?

Good luck to those who submitted their round 3 application.

I have one question to anyone who applied in earlier rounds. Is it required for official GMAT score report to be sent to Marshall?
The requirements page is ambiguous.
https://www.marshall.usc.edu/programs/mba-programs/full-time-mba/admissions/requirements

At the top of the "Test Scores" section, it says:
Quote:
Uploading of Test Scores (required for all applicants)

All admissions decisions are made by the Admissions Committee based on unofficial test scores that are uploaded into the online application as follows:

A little further down, it says:
Quote:
Submitting Official Test Scores

All candidates will need to submit official test scores (provided to USC by the testing service). To save time, applicants should, at the time of test registration, have the testing service(s) forward the official, confidential school report using the following institution codes:

GMAT: 389-9C-23
GRE: 4852
TOEFL: 4852
IETLS: Choose “University of Southern California, Graduate Programs.” Do not enter the name and contact information of your specific intended graduate department. USC will only accept electronic IELTS scores. Paper scores are not considered official.

More details from the website:[/quote]

The issue is I can't find the method on British council website from which I can report the same. Do you have any about the same?[/quote][/quote]


You will have to submit an Additional TRF in the office of British Council along with a DD/MC of INR 250, a copy of your score report, and a copy of your passport. You could either submit it personally or courier it. Address will be on the ATRF.

HI all
Just had my interview couple days ago.
It was very conversational but my interviewer did not take any notes when I answer my questions. Unlike other interviews I went to.
Did anyone experience the same?

There is a fair chance that it would be recorded
When interviews are recorded the Admissions committee doesn't need to take notes, they have a panel discussion and discuss it later

I don't believe that is a ding on your part as you've not heard from them. Usually some schools hold the application back for evaluation further or even might not have opened your interview recording

In my interview, the adcom said that they evaluate the R2 applications until the end of March.

I thought I totally bombed my interview, but I got an acceptance today.
My interviewer went through a very generic question list. Why MBA, why now, what do you want to do after, why Marshall, etc.
There were no follow-up questions so I didn't get to go into the details or tell stories regarding the answers.
So my answers were very generic and shallow.
On top of that, she noticed and asked about a gap in my work history.

Anyway, I'm happy to get accepted!
