Also, if people have gotten scholarships have they gotten in on 1st or second review? Thanks in advance


I must have missed seeing "1st review," since I went from complete (1/31) to "2nd review" next time I checked, not more than a few days later. Don't know what it means yet, but I'm "finalized" as of 2/8, so I'll let you know as soon as I find out!

Everyone goes from 1st review --> 2nd review --> final review --> decision finalized

I think a few people skipped the 2nd Committee Read stage recently. But as the site says, there's not much to extrapolate based on First/Second Reads dates (or lack-thereof).

I'm afraid my 'review' will be the amount of time it takes someone to gather up my application and take it the shredder

If they do that, they keep you on First Committee the entire time. Hence why I have been stuck on First Committee since 12/22. My guess is that on Tuesday all of us auto-rejects will get dinged. Why Tuesday? Because USC = heartless...

Has anyone who has been accepted so far been under 1st review for more than a couple of weeks before moving into 2nd review? Or are we thinking that if you get stuck in 1st review for a long time that it's a bad sign?

First, IN. My decision was finalized on Wednesday and I got the letter today. Live in CA, though.

Does anyone know how long after an admitted applicant fills out the scholarship app it usually takes for USC to send out scholarship offers?

Don't you dare to ding me, Trojans, for the rage of Peleus's son will be nothing in comparison to mine.


Haha! Rooting for you!!!

I'm still at complete 11/21. I guess that means I'm not getting in?

They haven't started making scholarship offers to anyone yet, but the latest email (the one about upcoming events) mentioned this:

"One final reminder, as we will begin making scholarship offers shortly, please complete and electronically submit the USC Law Scholarship Application if you have not done so already."
