What about waitlist? Did people who got waitlisted get emails or snail mail?

Well I guess those of us who switched today without emails should be expecting dings now...

I'm not 100% positive but I was under the impression that a wait listed applicant would be notified on their status checker after their decision was finalized since Wait List is a possible option listed on their status checker portion of their website.

Got an extra 10k/year after asking for more money, so pretty hyped about that, but not sure it will be enough to sway me away from UCLA. Guess i have a day to think it over, haha

Is anyone who's been accepted going to be in Terrace? I just got my acceptance 2 days ago so I'd love to chat with anyone who's going!

I am! There's also a facebook group for those that have committed to attending USC in the Fall.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/378858772155193/

There's a few of us in there who will be living in Terrace. However, if you'd like to chat more before you decide and join, I'd definitely be willing to!

Sweet Jesus. And I was upset about being stuck since 2/27. I have a theory we somehow annoyed them and they are waiting until the last possible day to reject us. Just a theory.

It's weird though, when I emailed them a few months ago, they said I may not get a decision until May 15th. If your theory is correct, shouldn't we have been rejected yesterday since their email implied that May 15th was the last possible day? When is this last possible day that I can expect my rejection???

It has been almost half a year since my status updated! WTFFF is going on?

Last hear I think some people didn't get decisions till the 21st or 24th or so, so it may be a little while longer. I have noooo idea what's going on. They would have accepted us if they wanted us I would think, and they've already accepted a fair amount of people off the wait list. So that just leaves torturing us for fun. I'm only half kidding btw.

were you waitlisted or just didn't get reviewed until now?

I'm quietly thinking that very, very, very few people did the video option.

I think USC may have undershot their yield. It seems like all the people let in off the WL thus far weren't "sneak-ins" #s-wise but rather people they should have let in the from the start (given GPA/LSAT indicators anyway).

As someone who has deposited, I find this alarming.

Oh I'm definitely going to USC! I would love to get to know everyone who's going to be in the class of '15! I applied to join the Facebook group so hopefully that worked out. When did you find out about Terrace? I assume that since I just got accepted my housing app is low on their to-do list :/

So if our status changed to Decision Finalized with no accompanying waitlist/acceptance e-mail, is it safe to say we've(I've) been dinged?
