Looking at LSN, I'd say most first decisions are coming on the 20th this month.

My status checker updated to "Decision Finalized" this morning. I guess we have to wait for the decision via snail mail...

Edit: The admitted students site says to login with the information you received from the AC via email. I suppose either an email is coming later in the day or a rejection letter in the mail.

Conventional wisdom says they will accept people before rejecting, I think it may be positive news.

Ya, I'm surprised too. It would be good if anyone else can confirm a status checker update. It is really early in the cycle for USC.

I just got an invitation in the mail to apply for the Frank Rothman Scholarship. Did anyone else get this? Is this a good indication I'll be admitted?

How do you know? I'm reading an old thread from 2008 and people don't seem to be sure.

Read it and make your own assumptions. The language is not absolute but to win the scholarship you must be a part of the incoming class. I don't see why they would invite people who they will not admit.

Well actually I could see that... but they must like you to invite you.

I applied to USC particularly for the scholarship...

any idea on when decisions come out? they said by april on the complete e-mail, but any shot at sometime this month? usc is one of my top choices (just below median GPA--3.5x), comfortably above LSAT 75th, but love LA, and some $ would be nice.

Scroll down. Last year started 21st. Best of luck to you! You will probably hear early since you can help them with the LSAT.

From reading through last year's thread, an overwhelming majority of Rothman invites were admitted. HOWEVER, I remember reading at least one was strung along and eventually waitlisted. My understanding was this happened to VERY few people, but it did happen.

Either way, congrats on the Rothman scholarship invitation!

Thanks! We have the same numbers, so maybe you'll get the invite too

would a score in the 170s but a gpa below median constitute rothman consideration?

I have no softs either besides some club leadership positions. Definitely not expecting to win the scholarship though.

I have no clue how they make their selections. I'm assuming, based on my invite, that above or around my numbers might qualify you. I don't have any great softs. So if you have a 173 and 3.6, you'll probably get an invite

Anyone know what would be considered competitive numbers for Rothmans? I like USC and all, but I wouldn't want to waste another 2-3 days putting together an essay only to find out my numbers gave me no shot at all in the first place. And seeing as how I never invented any "useful devices" as an undergrad, I'm probably facing an uphill battle regardless.
