whats the typical timeline for USC? how many committee reads and do they make a decision quickly after the last one? or is it very random?


I think it's two committee reads, then some other status, then decision is made. Not sure if decisions are all by email or letter or status checker or what. I can't remember. Last year's thread has all the answers to your questions, just start reading around December 15th or so.

Not sure how long it normally takes to receive a decision after their final review, but this should explain all the statuses: http://weblaw.usc.edu/how/jd/onlineapplicationstatus.cfm

This looks to be an extremely drawn out process. Still complete 11/2.

Anyone else NOT looking forward to 75 conversations over the holidays about what schools you've applied to and heard back from, when you'll hear back...and what kind of law you're going to focus on?

Just tell them you got into all of them and that Harvard gave you a full ride but you're still considering other schools because their recent dip in the rankings.

It looks like last year, they sent snail mail, but also sent a holiday treat email that implied admission.
