But if USC is your absolute top choice, good idea to make that clear to them/remind them at this stage?


I think sending in a LOCI at this point would be discouraged. If SC was your first choice, hopefully you expressed that in your personal statement? I think that should've been enough. Are you in review or still at complete?


Still at complete, mid-november. I'm not getting too anxious yet. Just curious to see what people thought, or why it would be discouraged.


My guess is that, because they haven't looked at your application yet, it wouldn't make much sense to send a LOCI just yet. I'm not sure if you were a Rothman invite, but there are some out there that haven't even gone in review yet, so I don't think it means they're not looking at your application because they don't like you or anything like that.

I got a similar response when I called, but all I asked was whether my application was being held from going into review because I had sent an email telling them to anticipate my new grades. All I wanted to was yes or no :roll:

they are really secretive about how they sort. i went for a tour and they made me wait outside the admissions office so i wouldn't hear their discussions or see their filing system.

Slightly frustrated now. The adcomm I spoke with strongly emphasized the importance of getting my application in early. I submitted the very first day that they were accepting, and I've been at Complete since 9/28/2009.

i would have agreed just a week ago that this would have been one of the worst things that can happen to an applicant. you should call them or email them just in case.

but know that it can be worse. veritas knows...

Haha, FML indeed.

I know it's a reach school, but I'd like them to just squash my hope so I can make other plans.

How many spots do they typically have for that? To be honest, I may sit this cycle out and retake anyways...I hurt my chances everywhere by applying so late.

Aww, thanks for the condolences! At this point, I could forgive USC even if they waitlist me. Anyways, I don't mean to whine, good luck to everyone else :)

I was complete from 1/29 until today when I switched to "under review". Does a turn around this quick mean anything? 167, 3.9.

usually early turnaround means easy rejection or easy acceptance. in your case with those stats, i would lean on easy acceptance.
