This has been answered 403954534543534545 times already, but i'm bored so i'll be nice.

Accept/ Deny: Snail Mail. For those of you living further away from USC, you MAY get your admitted students email BEFORE your letter arrives in the mail.

WL: on the status checker.

FAQ's:
When will USC give me a decision?

No one knows. Some time between now and the beginning of classes.

I haven't heard or gone into review yet. Am I out?

It's going to be less and less likely as time goes on that you will be given a favorable decision, however a multitude of factors will determine whether or not you will be accepted. Notably, your LSAT and GPA, which, if EXTREMELY competitive at this point, still gives you a shot at acceptance.

ACCEPTANCES COME IN SNAIL MAIL IN A REJECTION SIZED ENVELOPE, unfortunately so do rejections.

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION ARRIVES SEPARATELY, and requires that you fill out additional information AFTER YOU GET YOUR ACCEPTANCE. Feel free to fill out the FAFSA while you wait for a decision.

It's probably naive to think at any DF date means auto-ding or auto-accept, but I'm pretty sure most of us (if not all) in the 164 special snowflake pile will be rejected. Hope one of us makes in it though. Good luck and god speed, my brethren!

One correction: You'll get your decision by mid May. If that decision is WL, then you have anytime between mid May and the beginning of classes to find out.

I'll probably get my decision May 15... even though I applied in November.

Good luck to the latest DF'ers!

btw, unique means i wrote it in crayon


I'm also a 164 with very diverse experiences and a unique PS, and I just went 4/6 DF as well. This is definitely a consistent trend.

USC has been very slow this cycle; I think there's still 1 more batch of accepts coming. And I don't think it was the 4/6ers (mixed batch at best on that one)

Glad it's not just me. I live in Southern California but of course they d/f me right as I'm headed to New York for 10 days ( so I told them to send it there).

Just got the email as well.

Did your email have two events listed...one on April 14th 5:30pm re: diversity of student body and a second on April 15th for the admitted students day?
