+1

if they only give 1 Rothman per year (which I have no clue about), then it seems that some people did split the difference in terms of scholarships in past years
edit: Only 1 Rothman per year, and at least 1 person on LSN made note that they got 170k from USC through negotiation

I emailed USC asking to their Rothman side chick. I said I didn't need my picture on their website but that that hotline better bling with more cash.

Anybody have any stats on how many rejects from a prior cycle are admitted after reapplication? Is that a thing they look at and think "Gee you really must be serious" or is it more of a "Oh YOU again" type deal? Feel free to BS me if you don't know the exact answer, I'm desperate enough to cling to anything.

better numbers + better app = better chances. Without these, you have the same chances as you had when you got dinged

Thanks. I went complete mid-December and just went into review. I remember it also took them a while to reject me too, so I'm having a hard time battling back the bad feels.

The acceptance packet has a sign that says USC Gould 2020 share this on social media. They want you to show your friends and family that you are happy by posting this.

I got half tuition to UCLA but waitlisted to USC (A school i wanted to go to more at the beginning of the process)????

So weird. Anyone know or hear of people getting off the waitlist quickly by submitting a LOCI to their Waitlist response form? Or getting money from them after getting on the waitlist?


This sucks....
