Applied today!

Waiver info: I emailed them today to solicit one, they said anyone who applies by Dec. 31st is waived!

Anyone else have "incomplete" on their status claiming you haven't paid for the application?

I applied with a CRS waiver. Been complete since 11/5. The worst part about the whole thing....I have been emailed about my application so I know it has been looked at and have not had any changes.

I'm surprised USC hasn't made any decisions yet.

Same. As of this morning, I was still complete. I never had a "Committee 1st Read." Any idea what this means or if it's good/bad?

Either did I. I dont think its bad thats for sure, I think some get 1st and some get 2nd. If anyone else can shed some light that would be great.

I guess with their medians they feel they won't have trouble keeping in them if they are not sending out early acceptences.

12/10 committee first read!!! App received 10/28.

So, we are assuming that there are two reads, then decision?

According to the website, it seems like some applicants can even get four reads (preliminary, #1, #2, and final). Not sure though.

Just applied today! But I realized I forgot to include my high school info on the education section. Should I call/email the adcom to add this or is it not a big deal?

Every time I have omitted the high school section in an application that requires it, I get a notification that I can't complete the page. Does USC say it's mandatory? If not, no need to include it.
