Yea build quality of MAC is so much better.. Great Battery life and light weight makes it very appealing.. I just got a pro over air ast year because of better display, and higher CPU configuration. Air is so light but I am not sure how heavy data analytic programs will perform on it. I would love to check out new surface when it comes in September..
How well windows works on Mac? I will miss the right click all the time ?.. I may check about installing Ubuntu on Mac, but not sure if software will be available for Linux either...

Wow! Santa Ana to USC looks like some drive everyday ?.. But yea you make great point about sticking with I10 or perhaps even I110.. I guess classes start at 8 in morning so it will be driving in morning traffic then.. Returning from school should not be a problem, I guess it will be late and little traffic..?
Many students live either in DTLA or Culver city, so thinking about those areas... Will checkout the Huntington park too..

Thanks,

Anyone have any idea as to what is the average amount of scholarships awarded by Marshall, and what percentage of their MBA students receive them?

Windows runs great on the Mac, they use the same CPUs as windows laptops so no different than how it would run on a Lenovo or dell. Sometimes I think the superior cooling systems help just not sure about battery life because Mac OS is more optimized for better battery life. From my tests playing video games on both Mac and Windows on the same MacBook, games perform better on Windows so I think that is a good sign of performance. Bootcamp includes the tools for use on Windows and can detect the two finger tap for double click which is my preferred way of double clicking, haven't tried the bottom right corner for it though.

Yeah my situation is different. I own a house here and don't really think I want to deal with the stress of renting it out and then paying for a place closer. Also considering how I didn't get my study habits down until my last year of undergrad, I think it is better to force myself to be on campus, study go to events rather than being able to rush home. Though from my experience, traffic later in the day is actually worse. I avoid the freeways from 4 to 8pm. I also live close to the metrolink so I may do that when schedule permits.

Great.. If software issues come then I will go with Windows on MAC. Thanks for sharing your experience..

I think at least in first year, staying little late on campus to study and participate in events is the way to go..
First year syllabus is tough. Most of the college front load the core in first sem so that students are ready for internship recruiting..
One of the current student told me that it's not abnormal to study till 2 in the morning and the leave for school at 6 am..

Thanks

Mine was mailed out the day after I received the acceptance call, and arrived almost a week later. It's sent via USPS snail mail, so your receipt will depend on your proximity to SoCal. If you're in the general area, you'll get it in a day or two, if you're a long way off, like I am, you're probably looking at a week.

Just a heads-up, there's not much in the admissions "packet." There's a one-page acceptance letter, a short scholarship/fellowship letter (if you receive any), and a scholarship/fellowship questionnaire (again, if you receive any). They don't send any goodies, further program information, link to admitted student portals, etc.

Hey Everyone,

Just got in, but I never actually got to visit the campus since I live in Boston (hopefully going from cold --> hot). I would love to hear your thoughts on why one can't live actually closer to the city. Is there just no available space?

Congrats on getting in!

I did my undergrad in Cambridge and can tell you that you will love being able to go outside in a t-shirt in January some days. The truth is that USC is located right next to the downtown area of Los Angeles, across from the Colliseum. It is just expensive. I would say imagine having the school be down the street from the Prudential Center and trying to live around there. If you can wing it, why not? Makes going to school easier. On the plus side being next to DTLA does allow for the school to be really close to a lot of big companies that are doing business in the high rises.

Congrats! LA is massive, so there are a lot of places to live. I definitely want to be close to campus, so I will try to live in downtown or in nearby University Park. There's a metro rail line that goes through downtown and drops you off right across from Marshall, so I want to live somewhere near that and not have a car. My LA friends seem to think that is feasible in the Uber/Lyft age.

Thank y'all both for your advice, especially the one that drew parallels to Boston hahaha. If I come to USC, I would definitely want to be like sfmba512 and live somewhere closer to campus since I probably wont have a car. It good to know that there is a metro line that goes right to Marshall so maybe I could just live somewhere right by there in order to mitigate the cost.

Thanks so far for all your advice

Are you guys planning to Visit Marshall for admit weekend in April? Will the career services workshop be part of the admit weekend?

Thanks

Definitely going for the Admit weekend, will most likely go to the Career seminar this month to get it done sooner rather than later. As someone who has little business experience, think it might be good to have more time after the seminar to figure out where my career will head.

Hi! Congrats to all admits! Just curious, where are you all finding this information? (Re: Admit Weekend, Career Seminar, etc.) Is it on the Welcome Website? I was accepted in February but am still waiting to receive access to the Welcome Website. Eager for more details about Admit Weekend!

Like Ny2la mentioned, I too need to stay in the loop and not miss out on any information. Where did you get all this information?

I just got another packet in the mail today (different than the admit letter) with a bunch of information on the first semester class breakdown, academic calendar, academic advising, and student clubs. The packet has a save the date for April 29-30 for admit weekend, and it says that the welcome website will be up in the beginning of April. Didn't see anything about the career seminar, but definitely interested in that.

Per a friend who has also been admitted, she just got an e-mail from Marshall and the Welcome website is now live. July 31 is the day that everything gets going in earnest, so mark your calendars accordingly.

i also have received the follow-up packet from MBA Admissions. For the most part it wasn't anything of note, mainly just the academic calendar and a lot of general program literature. There was also a leather keychain, which seemed like a strange addition, but if you're in the market for one of those, you're in luck.
