No. I went DF on 3/7 and my last IR date was 3/2.

No DF's thus far today? Looks like it'll be Friday, if anything this week, then. Maybe next week. I can't imagine there being no more decisions by the beginning of April.

Maybe they're making scholarship decisions at the same time and that's why we're made to wait?

Are all of the "In Review 1/26 URMs" still hanging on to the same date?

I just think it's hilarious how USC blatantly grouped together all the URMs. I mean I'm sure a lot of schools do it, as I've stated before but this is just funny.

Regardless of whether you're a splitter, if you are still waiting for a decision, the odds of being waitlisted increase with each passing round of decisions. I'm hoping that there's at least one or two rounds of decisions (and that I can get admitted one of those rounds!) before everyone else is just flat-out WL'ed or dinged, but who knows.

Without revealing the stark detail, what day was the last decision round last year? Late March? Early April? I'd check myself but I can't bear to look at it.


Given that USC doesn't appear to be doing any obvious YP, there's a possibility that they've been waiting to see how many of the strongest applicants actually commit before dipping into the splitter pool. Going just from the LSN data, there are no 'Attending' among the accepts and bit less than 20 'Withdraws,' but who knows how much of the class has actually filled up by this point.

Last year it looks like the last big DR batch was at the end of April, with a mix of Accepts and Rejects and a few WLs. But in previous years it looks like most decisions made in April/May were Rejects or WLs.

Long story short: I think that it's pretty tough to predict what our chances are at this point based just on historical data.

Nobody has accepted because the scholarships haven't gone out yet (or if they did, only recently).

OK, well here's hoping the scholarship people withdraw soon. I already know of one person who is withdrawing.

Well, taking into account the news I heard today...USC you are my only hope! Still 2/3 Under Review, hopefully we will get some DF's this week for us weary souls.

I was about to express skepticism (perhaps skeptical hippo) then I realized it was you saying this RJ :shock: I guess I haven't been following this thread enough.

I want USC more than anything at this point...

USC, I'll give you some candy if you change my status from complete to IR. I'll bake you a cake if you accept me :)

Seriously. The wait is killing me. I've been complete since 1/24.

I've been complete since 11/29 and IR since 1/26.....USC was the second school I applied to and one of two schools yet to give me a decision.

Yikes. Sorry to hear that. If it makes you feel any better, you can have some of the candy I was going to give to USC.

I'm one of the many lingering November applicants that has never gone IR. I would love to be accepted, and would certainly attend (not at sticker), but at this point would prefer just to be waitlisted or rejected asap, if it's what's looming in the future.
