Could be wrong but I don't think any Rothman invitees have been accepted yet. Wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Wrong


I stand corrected. I saw a lot of people wondering/complaining about being invited but no acceptance the day of. Didn't remember anyone saying they were both invited and accepted. Apologies.

Still wouldn't worry about it. We are still super early in USC's timeline.

Also "he" is a "she"

And thank you bigzuck. Judging off of LSN I don't think it'd be unreasonable to get accepted. It's simply lack of movement that makes me feel sad haha.

You should have gone to a UC school. the grade inflation there is huge compared to USC. A 3.4 at USC is like 3.8 at UC schools. :mrgreen: and I suspect you will get in.

I meant no disrespect, I just mentioned that the Rothman was unlikely with those stats but you will get in. I think the Rothman is reserved for someone who gets into a top ten school.

Not sure which of the UCs you're referring to, but definitely not true at Berkeley.

Not true at UCLA either. In fact, quite the opposite. Most GE classes offer a limited amount of A's... many departments do not offer A+'s (Poly Sci comes to mind).

It's not true at UCD either.

Did anyone else get a "make sure to apply" email today? Freaked me out because I thought it may be a decision when I first saw "USC Gould School of Law" in the from line. Makes me tempted to call them and make sure that they realize I sent in an app (but, I probably won't).

I really hope so because grade inflation at Marshall is rampant. Classes are all curved to a B+.

Has anyone else received their acceptance packet yet? I got mine in the mail today, but there is no mention of a scholarship offer. I'm at or above both 75th percentiles, so I was kind of expecting something. Should I worry or is scholarship info coming later?

3.56/166 checking in. Long shot, but hopefully commiserating with others will still help!

heard that USC is really slow with decisions. complete only as of 12/2, looks like i'll have to wait until april for my rejection.

Glad to know it's just me. If only their mistake wasn't terrifying!
