Seems like those of us DF today are in a 166-167, good but not amazing GPA range. Not to be all Debbie Downer, but I'm wondering if this is a wave of dings...

It's possible, but USC's admissions is as numbers-centic as I've ever experienced. I'm hoping my softs + PS can sway them, but I can't get over how none of us have spectacular numbers...I desperately hope I'm wrong, but I'm just trying to temper my expectations a little. :(

I have a boat load of undergrad debt (83k) that would make Cornell at sticker pretty hard to swallow. I was strongly considering U of M at sticker if I was accepted though so I'd at least give it some consideration. My ugrad debt almost locks me into the biglaw path no matter where I go and it really blows hard.

FWIW: ND was great. Really comfortable and seems like a great fit.

I wonder if, on some tiny level, SC discriminates against LA grads, and vice versa. Or maybe they encourage it to try and convert them... any thoughts?

Actually UCLA and Cal each had more than USC this past year

edit: Though this might due to the larger student body size at UCLA and Cal

Slightly surprising.


Waitlisted as well. Did all the waitlisted get the same email today (or whenever they sent it to you) saying

"As mentioned in the initial wait list e-mail, USC LAW is conducting video interviews as part of the wait list selection process. You are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to give a more well-rounded and personalized picture of yourself."

This is my EXACT situation....I guess I'll be seeing you at WUSTL! (or BU if we get off the WL)

For anyone that's reserved their scholarship offer through email have you received confirmation about it?

No decision over the phone. :(

She did ask for my name and looked up my file, and by the suddenly sympathetic tone in her voice the news is probably not good. :lol: I have a feeling that if any of you are East coast, though, they may give you the decision.

Yes, I received a confirmation, but it was about a week-and-a-half after I sent the email to reserve my scholarship offer. I emailed USC on March 26 and got the confirmation on April 6.
