Just talked to admissions and they stated that they are still finishing up the full-time students today. She said they've released very few notices to R2 part time students and probably will not get to the remaining part-time applicants until next week.

Don't be bummed. I know waiting sucks, but as long has you don't have a "no", you have a chance at a "yes". Be patient and stay positive.

I'm OC as well. Deciding between Haas or USC. Having to commute to NorCal every saturday just isn't very appealing to me.

Got in! Very relieving. Looking forward to seeing the official offer letter. I'm in on Saturdays in LA.

Definitely enjoyed the interview as well, I'm glad they are moving towards making that a requirement. I got a ton of good feedback and information into the program.

Yes, I received my official letter about 10 days after I got the call. You will have to go through the application portal to pony up your $2500 deposit.

Just had my interview this morning. Boy was it stressful. I think it went well, I was happy with my answers and I think I helped to address some of the concerns they had about my application. My interview was much more formal than what has been mentioned here, so keep that in mind if you haven't gone in yet. Now just to wait and see! Fingers crossed!

All business school interviews should be treated like job interviews...since that's what it's all about after all.

Thanks for the feedback, I have my interview tomorrow. When you mention addressing your concerns on your application. Did they ask you specifics? Or did you bring them up yourself? I am just trying to mentally prep if any questions were to arise.

The adcom brought them up. I wouldn't say the concerns were overly specific. I am looking to switch career paths, from entertainment/creative services to marketing. She asked if I had a back-up plan if the career switch didn't work, which I thought was a bit of an odd question, but I did my best to address the issue. Good luck tomorrow! Let us know how it goes!

ok, thanks! That is actually not that bad of a question I hope you countered saying that with the skill set that you will acquire at Marshall along with the multiple career options that the school provides you will be able to transition to one of many career paths provided to you! Thanks for the luck, I will write back about my interview experience!

Good luck to everyone that still needs to interview! Mine was really conversational, I have a tendency to over prepare but honestly the best thing you can do is just be relaxed and confident. At the end of the day everything I over prepared for and worried about didn't really help me.

So kinda nuts, but I've been accepted to both the part time USC program and accelerated 15 month Pepperdine program and I'm having a hard time deciding between the two (definitely leaning towards USC though). I was wondering if anyone here has contemplated a similar thing (part time MBA at a great school vs full time at a so so school). For me it really comes down to being finished in 15 months vs 33 months and maybe the full time program allowing me to switch careers more easily. Even though being in school longer might be a drag, I really feel like the USC brand is something you can carry with you for life versus a possibly forgettable pepperdine degree (which is why im leaning towards USC). I'm also a fan of the school even though I didn't do my undergrad there so from a sports aspect it's great. i kinda need a sanity check tho. I'm also assuming part time students at USC have full access to career services and when you graduate the diploma and how you describe the program on your resume is the same (could someone confirm?).

Thanks!

Pepperdine's program is not as highly rated as USC's. Plus, the job placement statistics are not as good for Pepperdine. I would stick with USC - the Trojan network is legendary and will probably be very helpful in your career.
