Do they only send out rejections via snail mail?

Oof. Well thanks for the info anyhow. It went straight DR? No final review?


If it went into FR, it was damn quick. I was UCR at 2, and DR at 3. Definitely was an auto-ding.


That seems weird with your numbers. That 169 should have gotten you the WL. Why do you think this was?


Can't say I know. Has to be partly because it's USC and they're a bunch of pretentious, entitled fucks. "University of Sexual Ballers." Ha.

Yes, negotiated to 135k after starting at 120k. This was their best effort to match UCLA's full ride. Spolier alert: USC lost.

On a related note, any advice on upping the offer after reserving the current scholarship and putting down the first deposit? The only leverage I have at this point is a spot on Northwestern's waitlist....thinking there's not much hope for me.

who really lost is the sucker who will go at sticker to Subsidize your full ride.

Other than Rothman I don't see how you can get a full ride out of USC this year unless maybe you make some kind of deal in which you promise to committ on the spot. Maybe next they will give out full rides if supply of applications keep falling.

This.

been wondering about this for a while, I expect that's why they made the deadline 5/1 so applicants have virtually no leverage.

I hand delivered one when I was stuck on CR1 and ended up being waitlisted. They were pretty shocked though that I had done it and said they might not even be able to consider it with my file, so who knows!

They won't allow you to send in any updates while your file is in review. I tried, but they emailed me back stating their policy, and asked me not to send anything until a decision is made.

Complete early/mid January, CR1 3/25; any idea when I might get a decision? It has to be soon, right?
