Does USC do acceptance phonecalls or is it exclusively via status checker & snail mail?

I received an acceptance email about 10-15 minutes after I saw decision finalized so expect an email. If you don't hear soon I'm sure your decision will be sent by snail mail.

Expecting a rejection so anything else will be utter shock
Edit: did you status checker changed at all?

SC hasn't begun rejecting yet have they? They usually wait until later in the cycle no?

Anyone knows if they communicate through snail mail at all?

Edit: I wonder if the checker ever changed

Edit2: if I don't get an email tonight or tomorrow I'm assuming it's a rejection

http://www.mylsn.info/whenwilliknow.php

using this with USC suggests very few rejections have been given out in the January/February months. With that said, LSN is a small sample pool, and it still is 7-11% of the applicants who provided information of their decisions received rejections. But it does appear that you will either receive a rejection or an acceptance.... I hope it is the latter!

Thanks!! I'm surprised by how chill I'v been with the rejections thus far. I live USC but, if it happens it happens. Still not expecting much.
Still no email, which signals no good news

Edit: I'm guessing that the consensus is that the status checker doesn't change to what the decision is?

No status checker is finished at decision finalized. Everything past that has been communicated by e-mail and snail mail. I received my snail-mail package 7 days after the decision finalized change.

GL!

Thanks. But you said you got an email right after the status changed. It's been about 90 min. No email

Its the Trojan Network. All talk and no bite. (I am joking. The alumni base makes me feel like it is a cult. It was actually the reason I did not go as an undergrad, and is now, ironically enough, the reason I want to go for law school. Oh what 3 years can do to a person :lol: )

it is a cult and the whole "Trojan network" stuff just means USC has a better propaganda ministry than some others. However the schools does have a more loyal alumni base than its UC rivals.

because there's lots of people here on this thread who would die to get in to USC and are still complete or under first read with plenty of competitive numbers, and you claiming that you should be an auto-admit with similar/slightly higher numbers makes you look like a dick.

or maybe it makes them feel more secure that i havent heard anything yet so theres no need for them to worry about hearing nothing either?

there's more than 1 way to interpret words.
