I applied 10/12, complete 10/13. I grew up in (northern) CA but am out of state now.

Applied 10/29 complete 10/31

Anyone know what the turn around looks like?

Also, USC is private so residency has no weight, right? I'm from NJ...

Does anyone know if USC grants merit-based fee waivers to candidates who are above just ONE of their medians and not both?

Yes they do, I'm 3.74--159 and they granted me one. But I'm also an AA male so I guess that factors into it.

I'm below their GPA median but I got a merit waiver through CRS. I have heard that to successfully solicit one you do have to be over both medians though.

USC does have a status checker. You might be thinking of UCLA. Trojans/Bruins wouldn't appreciate mistaking one for the other. :)

USC does have a status checker, but I assume you won't be able to find out the decision through it.

This is from an email they sent me last week

Your application is now complete. Once the Admissions Committee begins the review process and a decision is made, we will notify you via postal mail. We cannot release decisions over the phone or by email.

That's exactly what the UCLA response looks like but the USC one should have been a status checker. So weird!

Maybe I'm missing something here but UCLA does say they will inform you via email and most people receive a call from the dean when they're accepted. So.. isn't that the complete opposite of USC's policy?
