Final review today. Never thought this would approach an end honestly.

Personally, I think its because I finally got my LOR for WL/nonresponsive schools like USC in today. A shame that they'll make a decision before it gets there. Talk about an existential jinxing, but it might be good. xD

Hate being a nervous nelly over here, but anyone else in the same 12/20 Complete boat? Almost 3 months later, and I'm debating sending in a LOCI...usc could just be crazy slow and my app didn't make it into a "worth reviewing quickly" pile...

Normally, I would absolutely send in a LOCI, but I actually called their admissions office last week asking about LOCIs... the lady seemed kind of annoyed and kind of (in a nicer way) said "of course you shouldn't send in a LOCI before a decision has been reached." She said the process is really "thorough," whatever that means... but in any case, she demonstrated a negative attitude towards LOCIs and they seem to maybe just be behind based on how many people are complaining about being complete/in various "reads" forever.

This school is driving me crazy! I was invited to, and did apply for, the Rothman (not intending to get it, but worth a shot). Still at Committee Second Read 12/13. I wrote you two essays, an application, and a video. At least give me an answer!

I haven't looked through the entire thread, but has there been any consistent time period between 2nd committee reviews and getting a decision finalized? I'd been on 1st comm review since 11/21, with a 1/9 update and a move to 2nd comm review on 3/9. Any idea if I'm close?

Well according to previous posts, their process makes no fucking sense.

They are probably still immersed in the video you gave them: Everytime they are tired of reading our papers, they'd probably watch your video and relax, that's why they won't let it go. Send them an ipad or something, they'll probably let your file go.

Hahah I appreciate the thought :lol: ! I don't quite share the same optimism, though - I'd just rather get my ding/wl sooner than later.

Call them or write them an e-mail. I had the same thing happen to me, same complete date too. I wrote their office a kind e-mail requesting the info. They didn't respond. I wrote an admissions officer directly, she told me to double check my spam/trash folders, like I hadn't already done that a hundred times. I wrote her again requesting the info, and she sent it the next day.

Long story short, either they really don't want us or USC is swamped with apps, but you need to contact their office somehow.

Still complete 1/23 with no movement. I wonder if they will even bother opening my application, or if it will be (or already was...) straight to the shredder
