I just noticed something on the USC status checker page:

"The Law School admissions process operates on a rolling basis. Meaning, we begin to make admission decisions before the application priority date. Applications that are completed by February 1 receive priority review."

I was complete 10/14, and have yet to go into review. I'd hate to see what people who DIDN'T get priority review are going to have to go through.


I applied early January and got accepted in February..cant be truly rolling I suppose.

Anyone have any information/advice about the USC waitlist? From what I've found on this site, supposedly the waitlist is relatively small and not necessarily the end of the world if you're on it, especially if you demonstrate interest and a commitment to USC.

Damn, that sucks. I was complete Jan. 14 and I've been in review since Feb. 1st...

How long did it take for people's statuses to change from being in review?

There was only a week between when my app went complete and DF. I never saw it IR.

i just got a waitlist packet in the mail. according to them, they maintain a wait-list of 400-600 candidates. relatively small i guess... lol but they do encourage people to send over locis consistently

Lots of people have been complete since October and been in review for well over a month. You're safe for now, I'd say.

Yeah I didn't have the waitlist letter to be too encouraging. They're basically saying sign up if you want. It's a crap shoot.

Has anyone heard anything about merit scholarships (other than Rothman)? I filled out that financial e-mail they sent out, but I haven't heard anything about $$.

I've withdrawn from USC. I hope my acceptance goes to someone here :)

Best of luck all.

Different strokes for different folks...

Although, I would have waited for financial aid info from USC, especially considering his UNLV scholly has a top 1/3 requirement. :?


I did.

I was thinking about doing just that, Sauer Grapes, but I realized that even if USC gave me a full ride (highly unlikely), I'd probably end up going to Boyd anyway. It's mostly a matter of being interested in a very specialized portion of generally untaught law (Gaming law) and the networking opportunities available if I stay in the town I want to practice in.

USC is a great school, and for any of the usual career paths (a less specialized area of law, west coast biglaw, whatever) it certainly would have made more sense. I've just realized I fall into a very specialized niche, within a very particular market, and USC doesn't cover that very specialized field particularly well. That's no failing on USC's part, no one else does either (except Boyd).
