Wait, what? So you might get dinged for your persistence? Or they just prefer students that don't give a shit? -1, South Carolina.

I was glad to hear back from them. S. Car is a really pretty state but, for I'd like to work in some International capacity and I'm guessing S Car isn't going to fast track me that way.


scholly info came for you?!



Wow I just read this haha. Sorry for riling you up Sarlis. I was mistaken, I must have been TLSing drunk or something. I have not received any scholarship information from South Car, that 60% comment was from another school. Point being I'm an idiot, but I'll keep y'all posted if I really do hear again from S. Car

+1 I also got a stern lecture from a woman who said she "just remembered talking to me." I corrected her and told her that I hadn't called in a month but she wasn't having any of that.

I applied to UScarolina in October, and still no response. My numbers are well above median. If you have heard from USC, when did you go ccomplete, etc?


I am median LSAT, and a full point under median for GPA, I applied in early November/Late October, and got in yesterday.

Yeah, it's called:
GET AN F-ING ONLINE STATUS CHECKER LADY!!!!!
No offense to anyone here, but if this is any indication of "a.) their philosophy on technology" or "b.) how they treat us lowly students" then I now understand how they got their athletics nick name.

Un-FREAKING-believable...

That would be a huge turnoff. Last year an Ole Miss law student from SC told me really horrible things about their law school admissions office; guess they were right.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of where to possibly look for a place to live if I did choose to attend UofSC? I am not too familiar with Columbia but know general areas.

I am looking for a very affordable place that would be safe for me to live alone. Also, I would love a quiet place. I live downtown in a city right now and I am tired of hearing people's car bass as they drive past my apartment. I would like to avoid the typical undergraduate place to live as well.

PM if you have any suggestions!

letter marked 2/3

didn't receive it until today, but that's probably because I missed all mail due to the snow in dc

I called last week.The lady I spoke with was polite and mannered, as you would expect from South Carolina, and she informed me that my application had just gone under review within the past week. I went complete on 1/15.

I got in about 2 weeks ago and the letter said that I was eligible for a merit scholarship, which are decided in March. No other details though!

Got a letter from South Carolina today. It was a small thin envelop, and I was just sure that it was a reject/waitlist. It was from the Financial Aid Office, saying that I hadn't been accepted yet to any degree granting program. So I'm still waiting.

These guys are such douches. That admissions office was rude to me AGAIN when I called. It will be the LAST time I speak with anyone at that college for the REST OF MY LIFE! Sorry, but if I was to choose from tier 3 (Stetson/Michigan State) OR this school- I'm going to the tier 3's on the rise, not the tier two's on the decline.

I know why these guys call themselve "the Cocks" now.

My acceptance letter from USC was in a small, thin envelope! I thought for sure it was WL/R too. So you never know..

+1, I withdrew without ever getting a decision. And SC I hope you enjoyed your 2 minutes of fame after beating us in basketball, because you're back to being irrelevant in the college sports world now.
