Still IR 11/22. USC takes 3 months, Vanderbilt takes 3 days. Who do you think I'm holding in higher esteem right now, SoCal?

You say that now, but if they came back and threw more money at you, you'd change. USC knows it.

If a girl is courted by 2 boys, 1 she really likes and 1 who she thinks is ok, and the 1st ignores her, then comes back in style, we know how that's gonna end.

Trust me I'd like to find out too. USC has always been one of my top choices. Once you leave the top 10, they were my #1. I know they required a dean's cert if you had disciplinary action, and my dean hated me. Phrases like, "This student is a sly sleazeball who will stab 50 people in the back for their own personal gain" are things he had said about me in the past. My only hope is USC is just numbers based or considers that this dean despises me so much, he must be biased.

Wow, naturally we're rooting for you now that you said people believe you'd stab 50 people in the back for your own personal gain.

how does your dean know you that well? Have you constantly been in trouble / go to a small school? Not trying to pry ... just seems like your dean has an intimate knowledge of your actions, which seems odd.

Was in trouble 1 time....it's a long story I've talked about before, but I once made a not so nice comment about my ex-girlfriend who was his friend's daughter. I tried to argue the school's speech codes should not apply as it was on state public property, and he was very upset and thought I was a sly jerkoff.

But seriously, they're so overdue for another round of DFs it's not even funny. Do they usually do Friday decisions?

Seems like they like doing decisions on the 7th/ and or 8th of each month.

ETA: and at no other time of the month. :evil:

Then I guess it's March 7/8 or bust for those of us still waiting? I mean, I guess people get in through April and May but...

However looking back there were DFs 1/3 and 1/14, so I doubt once a month is the norm. Every two weeks seems about right, although I can understand why the decisions might get a little slower later in the cycle. Anyway, 1/3 and 1/14 are Monday and Friday. Today is Friday, and no DFs since 2/7? I haven't looked at enough DFs to know if Monday and Fridays are the norm, or if they alternate, but if they do, last DF was a Monday... I am half expecting a wave today, half trying not to get my hopes up.

haha i was really just being snarky, but I do appreciate you going back and looking... as someone on her 4th IR date, I expect to be in the next batch of decisions. I would be thrilled if that batch was mailed today :)

As a compulsive Gawker commenter I really should recognize snark better.

It's almost March. I'm sitting here listening to Bob Dylan and compulsively checking my USC status...this is driving me crazy lol. I hop USC gets back to me soon; it's making me anxious not knowing where I'll be living in a matter of a few months.

Could be an elaborate prank? I have that call though.

If you didn't seem like a legit poster based on your history I would call bullshit. USC's website says they don't release decisions over the phone or via email. Even if they broke their own policy, I haven't read anyone else on this forum saying they've gotten an acceptance phone call from USC.

However I got an email from the admissions office saying that I have my social security number missing (I'm an international applicant, was issued a number by LSAC but didn't want to put that on my app.). I just wonder whether USC is already looking at my application? I thought they won't look at it until the file is complete?

Look is an ambiguous term. When one is in a relationship, they physically see other people with their eyes, but are not "looking" at them.

He (he director of admissions) said he wanted to be hopefully be first to congratulate me. The call also served re purpose of inviting me to an admitted stdents reception in my city next friday. Could be they were concerned he letter wouldn't get to me on time? I don't care enough to call back and inquire about the discrepancy. I assure you though- I have the file saved on my phone. When im not at an airport I will record it on my computer and upload it for you.

I certainly don't demand proof, I'm not that type of asshole. You understand why it sounds fishy? I haven't seen anyone else on here mention a phone call. You must be an unusually strong applicant.
