164/3.5...Decision Finalized today. I don't think everyone who's status changed today will have the same outcome. Honestly I'm probably denied, but good luck to everyone and as I said it is doubtful that we are all either one thing or another.

Agreed. I wager USC is responding to certain rankings with exactness here. Big wave obviously.

Still at 2/27 CR2. I feel like my numbers are similar enough to others with decisions finalized today (in profile); nervous for what this means.

What do you mean by responding to certain rankings with exactness? Which ranking? The USNWR?

I don't think this recent wave is a response to the ranking. im sure all schools knew about the ranking before in-print publication.

Eh good point. But how we react to the change maybe? Or maybe I am insane.

I've been at complete since 2/5 after submitting on 2/1 =/ and I know a few other people who still haven't made it to CR. So you aren't alone/the latest one :)


I've been stuck at complete as well, for anyone who may care

Decision finalized today for me as well. Was in final review since 3/5. Can't wait for them to waitlist me so this cycle is even more of a joke for me.

Hoping to be wait listed.

According to last year's thread admits generally got an email within 24 hours, dings got snail mail 3ish days later (depends on how far away you are from sunny SoCal). I'm not sure what the fact that no one's spoken up about getting an admit email so far means.

Let's be real...do we really expect an immediate email out of this snail-paced office?

All I'm saying is I wouldn't put it past them. And if they have some crazy magic email system like other schools, I bet they just are too Cali-slow to press send immediately.

This should be interesting. No mail yet. So perhaps we're all admitted via email today?

Fwiw I was there the other day and they seemed pretty busy with phone calls and stuff. I think if you haven't gotten an email it's probably just the time of year and not a horrible sign of your chances!

Probably because USC is notoriously slow. Last cycle, I went complete and waited 6 months for them to reject me.

They're still better than NorthwesTTTTern though. I think they lost my app.

NU got back to me before USC, UNC, Bama, and maybe somewhere else that I'm forgetting.

Why do they hate me? I thought my interview went really well.
