I applied non-binding. Still at complete, no changes on my status checker. I got to a T20 and I am top ~10%. I'd be interested to know when to expect any movement - they say by May 1, but does that hold true?

I read the forum thread from last year's early decision applicants...when did your status first change? how were you notified (email/letter)?

thanks for the info

I am also a USC transfer. My status first changed April 23 to first committee read. I was accepted on May 2 and I was notified by email.

Good luck everyone! Happy to answer any USC transfer questions.

My status is also still at "complete" today.

Judging from last year's posts about Early Decision, we should probably be seeing some status changes in the next week.

GL on finals

"In 2009, USC accepted 19 transfer students" according to TLS

I didn't see any movement until May, so you're probably still fine.

I think this year's transfer class has about 30. I'm not sure how many came from the early decision cycle, though.

Still at complete. Looks like last year some decisions started late at night May 1, so maybe tomorrow. Any idea how many people apply/are accepted who apply ED?

Anyone accepted/denied please PM me/post application stats and indicate if binding or not. It looks like last year's ED results came in at about 1145pm. Hopefully they take a few more this year than last
