The dean of admissions at USC is completely useless. She has to wait for the faculty to basically approve every single acceptance, she can't accept anyone without their approval. Even someone who has the high stats and so on.. I think Yale does it this way as well or something close to it but Yale is Yale, they can do anything they want..USC on other hand is too slow..
Applications that are completed by February 1 receive priority review. All applicant files are reviewed administratively by the Dean of Admissions or a member of the admissions staff once they are complete. A portion of the applicant pool is admitted and denied by the Dean of Admissions based on admissions criteria set forth by the Admissions and Financial Aid Committee. A small number of files are reviewed by the Admissions and Financial Committee who make advisory admission decisions.
I feel like the dean plays a larger role than you are saying...idk. Can someone expand upon this?
