Dear USC,

If you gave me a Rothman, not only would I accept the offer immediately I will gladly get a Rothman tramp stamp tattoo. I am a guy.

Signed,
Cookiejar.

I think first born son would be a better offering than the tramp stamp. But i guess it's better to start low and have them counter offer.

I toured both USC and UCLA this last week. My impresions are posted on the UCLA applicants thread....
Loved both schools, accepted at both. It will be a very tough choice.

Invited to both the general LA reception tonight and the reception on Tues for admitted students from USC undergrad at the deans house.

Redundant/awkward to attend both? Considering it.

Just attended the LA reception. Fancy schmancy... PM me if you have any questions/want to know more about what went down but it was basically a big networking event with faculty, alumni, and admitted students. Part of it made me love USC more (read: the AMAZING faculty) and part of it made me annoyed (read: lots of snootiness).

Can you expand on the snootiness and kiss assery for those of us who couldn't attend?

For what it's worth, I didn't detect any abnormal levels of snootiness. It was a standard Beverly Hills event, and they asked people to come in business attire. The hosts were really nice and down-to-earth. I think the "1000%" figure is a complete overstatement.

Yeah, I edited my statement because that was a little harsh. I think it was just a personal thing, because I'm not a huge networking/schmoozing/showing off my designer clothes kind of person. Honestly though, you're right. The hosts were fantastic and completely down to earth. And I loved the faculty and all of the current students I talked to. It was much more of a positive than a negative for me, but I just thought it felt like too much of an open house or something where you get wined and dined into buying a house that is too expensive for you in the first place.

Haha, I'm not sure that's off base. They actually seemed kind of upfront about it. This is the first such event I've attended, so I don't know the feel for them yet. It's nice to be wanted, though!

Just attended the reception as well. And not trying to be critical but just calling a spade a spade: if dressing up and mingling with successful people is really that painful then working in the legal field is going to drive you insane.

I loved the reception. It's these types of things that set USC apart from UCLA in my opinion. The alumni are all dedicated to giving back and it has a personal touch. They definitely jumped a notch in my book tonight.

I attended the private reception as well. I couldn't really determine the scope of their invites... I know it was for LA locals because the dean said so, but besides that, I don't know if it was for scholarship recipients or just anyone in general. There weren't that many admits present.

I went complete 1/2. But I believe there were people from before me that still were complete as well.

First committee read today as well. Complete 12/19 and today is the first update I've had since. You might be waiting another month!

Really? Does this mean I should LOCI??

167/3.4 double major econ (grades weighted to a c in econ major)

I went complete around Thanksgiving and CR1 on Feb/18.

I really want to stay in Cali. In at GW, Hastings, Miami (dual MM degree), Fordham, and still waiting on nyu, duke, cornell, usc, ucla.

Should I be sending LOCI to these schools? All applied to all of them around Thanksgiving.

Just to clarify: does CR1 mean that they just read your file, and then it is in limbo until CR2 happens, or is CR1 a continual process?

Do you guys realize how slow USC is? Read the last post I made, like two or three posts up. You will easily be waiting another month until you go under review. It's hard as hell to be patient, though. I understand. Just don't want you guys to have false hope.

Yeah I have realized just how slow they can be. Went complete 11/16, CR1 1/14 and crickets ever since. Oh well, there is always a luggage cart at the back of the passenger train.

HEY USC, ALL ABOARD!

I've been telling people that all over this thread. Doesn't mean that I can't hope for them to move faster!
