USC Marshall Interview Questions & Report: Round 5 / Adcom / Skype

I was interviewed by Elaine. Very similar experience as what has been reported here. She was very nice, and the interview was casual and straightforward. The questions she asked me took about 15 min, then I filled up the remaining time with questions to ask her. I would prepare 5 – 7 questions to save for the end. She was happy to hear that I had connected with current students, so definitely try to do that prior to interviewing.


Tell me about your undergrad/ Why did you choose your undergrad major?
Resume walk through.
Why MBA?
Why Marshall?
What are you most proud of? / Tell me about one of your most memorable professional experiences.
What are 3 things your direct report would say about you?
What are 3 strengths from your last performance review? / What would your boss would say about you?
Have you connected with a current student to learn about the program?
What is your weakness or area / skill that needs improvement?
Anything I wanted to share about myself with her that’s not on the application?
Questions for her?
