Is in final review good or bad?

Like is it likely deny or accept?

Do they ever deny straight after 1st committee?

Wow that's that lol. We'll see what happens. While I entertain the thought of being admitted, what do you guys think of USC vs UC Hastings?

Do you all think USC has a presence in Nor Cal?

1/6 CR1 to 3/5 Final Review

What's been peoples' experience with movement from CR1 to Final Review (no CR2)?

Does anyone know what this means (read: I want you to read tea leaves and guarantee me admission)?

OMG FINALLY!

01/15 CR 2
03/05 FR

I see some of you with the same FR DATES! What does this mean? Does this mean closer to accept or deny? I know this has been asked before.. but ..I'm dying for a satisfactory response!

Anyone?

Hopefully that image link works. It's from a couple cycles ago, but maybe it's helpful for those with status updates.

they offer interview?

no?

so i submitted 2/1 and went complete 2/5 and haven't heard anything since. do you all think i screwed myself by applying so late? i just read on their website that i might not get reviewed because of when I went complete?

Applications that are completed by February 1 receive priority review.


it seems like some people who submitted before me but went complete after me are already on CR1 :|

I would wager that a "completed" application is equivalent to "submitted" app in this situation, mostly because you have little control of when you actually go complete other than submitting weeks before the deadline.

Been in 2nd Read since 1/30... Starting to get a little pessimistic about my app. LSAT's at median and GPA's at 25th. I know USC's kinda a reach, but I was hoping the decreased number of applications would change that.

I submitted on 01/13, went complete the next day, CR1 within a week, and have been CR2 since 01/16 but that date has changed four times while still staying in CR2 since then....

I mean, four second reviews, I'm not sure one could really call that a "second" review anymore...
