As you know with the red color around my comment, I am a very disgruntled alum of USC's Marshall Business School. I'm not surprised to see many other Marshall grads post negative or neutral comments about the school. The only plus side to Marshall is the connections…which only helps the few lucky students who live in LA and the surrounding counties. But for me, an out of state student, Marshall doesn't have a prestigious reputation. Heck, even Marshall isn't recognized that much in the Bay Area. The part that disappointed me about Marshall was the stupid retarded grading scale. The average was set at 2.7, and some of the goody-two-shoe students who are for this grading curve, are basically the Marshall students who only care about working and making $$$$ after their undergrad years. For me, and some other conscientious hard working students who came out of Marshall want to go on to professional school (i.e. law school, med school) or graduate school to further their education. Guess what? A lot of professional schools and graduate schools don't give a flying f__k about Marshall's grading curve. If you get a 3.2 GPA from USC,..regardless of whether this is your business course GPA or your overall GPA…you're inferior to another competiting candidate with a 3.78 GPA (overall or their major's GPA) from let's say a Cal State institute!! Basically what I'm saying, is this grading curved hurt my chances of going to law school. Despite the fact that the LSAT score can compensate for a low GPA…won't let me buy into that argument. Admissions committe at other schools (unlike the circus admissions committee at various USC departments) could care less about USC's Marshall School grading curve, and USC is still considered to be a "party school" in the midwest and definitely on the East Coast. If you're into football, and maybe placing SOME of your efforts into academics and research, then come to this circus school (I am actually only picking on Marshall…not USC as a whole) called Marshall School of Business. Heck, the MBA program is a complete joke too! President Sample ought to highly visit other colleges and emulate the way other colleges run. I am never going to donate a single penny to Marshall or USC as an alum and will never have my kids apply to this phony school in the future!! >(
