Eh, I don't really buy that. The average February score is 2 points lower than the average score of every other administration through the year. (See page 39)
http://www.lsac.org/docs/default-source/research-(lsac-resources)/tr-12-03.pdf

While there are certainly more people with good scores, it's very likely that there aren't that many. For example, in 11-12 there would have been ~800 February test takers who scored 166+. Then you would also have to assume they applied this cycle (instead of next cycle) AND applied to USC. Again, it's possible but I doubt it made a huge impact.

Just wondering, because the same situation you guys are all in just happened to me with GW. Is there an admitted students portal? Just try logging in/creating a profile in it if there is one. If you can log in/create and account, congrats you are in... if not, my condolences.

Again, I don't know if USC has one so above may not even be possible.

Well how would we know our login info without an acceptance email?

Just checked, you're right. Looks like USC does not have the sort of backdoor that GW and GUCL have.

Oh well, I guess only option is to continue waiting. Sorry that's frustrating. Tried to help.

I don't look forward to this happening to me in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, I think all of us in that boat are getting dinged. I feel like if it was an accept, an email would have showed up by now. I might just call the office, I hate waiting like this.

Honestly, I think we are all getting rejected.

As much as I hate to do this, I have to agree with all of you about the rejections. From those of you who have stats in your profiles, and knowing my stats (in profile), I don't think we have very competitive stats for USC. I'm starting to think dings all around as well... :(

Anyone here still ur2 and applied back in October/November? The wait is getting annoying. Hang in there if you had your decision finalized. You never know!

I feel you. I applied in December. UR1, UR2, and then UR2 date change in February. Does anyone know what that might mean? I sent some supplemental info, so maybe they just looked at it?

Good luck to everyone who is part of this apparent "wave."

About to leave the office. Bracing myself for what I might find in my mailbox after I battle through traffic and get back to my apartment...
