Good luck. Definitely considering USC but it's not THAT much more than what other places gave me so I want a little more to make my decision a little easier.

13 people received full scholarships last year according to the 509 report. I'm guessing that 1 was the rothman who gets extra benefits and the others were rothman finalists
edit: 13 people were ON full scholarhips. assuming evenness between classes, 13/3 = ~4 full schollies last year where people actually attended

I've got to applaud USC for acting like they give a damn about me as an applicant. I've had some really shitty experiences with other schoos.

Sent an email 12 days ago to the director of financial services and she said that they were going to start reviewing appeals over the next week or so and I would hear back shortly. I think that last week they started reviewing and will probably get back to us within the next few days. Probably best to send out those appeal requests sooner rather than later
