I was going through older threads from other classes and it seems they didn't have these types of problems. It must part of the restructuring thing and or are they swamped with applications? I think they have opened a class of 2016 facebook page maybe we can answers there?

Same here; don't know what's going on with the Adcom office; I wrote an email to update and clarify a very important issue on my undergraduate exchange transcript, and it's been 8 days; nobody bothers to write back, which is quite different to what I had experienced with other schools


Half the time I would email the adcom office I never got a response. When I did get a response, half the time they were conflicting answers.

I wasn't very impressed.

It is ok to trouble the applicants with all these nuances , but not the recommenders.



Right, that's the point; it's the same file that my recommender uploaded into other schools' systems so he never expected such a file size limit. I mean, seriously, bigger files will bankrupt the system or what? there're other schools require students to upload video essays and stuff and haven't run into any technical problem.

Anyway, what annoys me is that my recommender hasn't heard back from the Admissions, so he doesn't know if they will treat his recommendation letter as part of his recommendation, or they're just ignoring him....



The frame within the application window was totally screwed on my screen. I'd have to use two scroll bars to go up and down the application.

It was.... awful.

They were quoted in Poets and Quants a month or two ago saying the numbers of apps they have received aren't exactly mindblowing.

I believe this is the article you are speaking about. The USC bit is at the end.

I think that was last year. I don't see the part times having this much trouble, someone needs to bring this up to someones attention over at the school.

Seems like invitations for round 1 started going out anywhere from 15-20 days after the Oct. 15 deadline. If that trend continues, I think we should start seeing some round 2 invites pretty soon. Hopefully

Just invited to interview. A little surprised that I was invited given that I wrote all of LAST year's essays. But my guess is my 3.92 GPA and 760 carried me

No, I received an email from someone in the Marshall office requesting my choices for interview dates and times.

Yes unfortunately. I couldn't find the essays on the darned application so I used an independent online website to find them and apparently they were last year's essays. When I submitted, I submitted via PDF and the website doesn't show the actual questions unless you open something which I didn't even see.

So many mistakes on my end for this application. :roll:
