This guy. Mentioned it a little earlier (on this page). Same/similar situation. I am ever so slightly below their median GPA (3.5X).


Me three. Close to 75% LSAT, close to 75% GPA.


doesn't that mean your LSAT is below median? since USC's median and 75% lsat = 167?


Or possibly I'm over/at 75% and just don't want to be too specific.

Well then that was kind of a fail, right?

:shock:

USC has gone insane.


:( might it help my chances to call the admissions office in tears?
What a day. I also got a parking ticket and got in a fight with my mom.
:cry:


Do you definitely want to go there? Given your other acceptances?

If you were holding out for a Rothman, I'd say at this point that's probably out.


USC had pulled to the front lately, yes, given UCLA's refusal to give me any money. I didn't think I would get the Rothman, but I sent in the essay so they'd see I was interested and maybe buff up my finaid offer. This is the last thing I expected. :(

Well that really blows then. I really want to be in LA as well. I'm sure you'll be the first they pull off the wait-list, in any case. A good LOCI would probably demonstrate that you were interested even without the Rothman. Good luck!

No I'm not.. I have a unique resume (law firm, legislative internship, founded my own LLC) and a good (IMO) PS about how being adopted has shaped me as a person but I still never expected to get in... I'm still in shock about it to be honest


AND they know how much Wisconsin rocks hahahaha

WL via status checker for me. LSAT slightly below 25% GPA above 75%
IR 1/20

Congrats to those admitted!

It's my first waitlist so I don't know what to think. I guess it's better than a rejection!

I don't think being waitlisted at SC is as bad as getting wled at some other schools, from what I've read. Good luck :D I'd be happy to at least get a WL but I haven't even been glanced at yet :(

I have the EXACT same stats as you. Mind sharing when you applied? Any softs that stood out?

I went complete in 01/21. Really nervous about my prospects, but seeing you get an acceptance has boosted my morale a bit.

Forgot to post this here:

IN! Via rejection-sized envelope on 2/22 (although I suspected a bit earlier, since they emailed me my USC ID number). Super stoked, since I love SoCal.

Complete: 11/18
In Review: 1/20 (ish)
Decision Finalized: 2/17

Hey USC, remember all those horrible things I said about your football team? I take them all back. Why dont you just take a look at my law school app, and send me a nice little acceptance letter. Thanks! Love you.
