The waiting is freaking me out. I don't have good chance to get in, but it is my dream school. My file went complete since 11/10 and my assistant dean just wrote me a new letter, should I send in? I don't know whether it will help or not........

I'd send it. Why not?

I will call to ask today. My file has not been under review yet, so I think it should be ok to send new letter in. But I don't know it will postpone the review of my file, putting me in a even bad situation. USC is a reach for me.

Just got the acceptance letter from USC! The single page - slim white envelop trick was a little cruel though. Status checker reported decision finalized on 12/21, so I've been waiting awhile for this - nice to have that wait over!

Has anyone who was admitted in this last batch received a packet yet?

No - most offices just reopened today so i wouldn't expect the admissions packet to go out until this week at the earliest...

All of the documents should be there, but my fee waiver was this form I had to mail to them (because apparently USC thinks it's the 1980s). I mailed it on 12/6. Is it common for it to take them this long to go complete or did my post office screw up again?

Barely got word (via email) that I was complete today. I submitted everything on 12/1.

Is anyone else who went In Review on 12/17-18 still stuck there? It sounded like all the In Reviews of that batch heard back within a week or so. I'm still In Review, though. I got the Rothman invite what, 3 weeks ago? I didn't expect to wait this long to hear...

I'm also IR since 12/18 and also got the Rothman invite. I got all excited before the holidays since so many acceptances were coming out, but I got zilch.

Why are you giving up hope? I know you're probably kidding, but come on. There are Rothman invites who are still in review.

I'm complete 11/10 (though I submitted in mid-October). My LSAT is >75% and my GPA is >25%. I feel like I am a strong candidate for the program, so I'm not giving up hope based on my complete date! Hang in there.

Are you a Rothman invitee? My GPA is >75% and LSAT is = to 25%, but I didn't get one. Just hoping that I'm not sitting in some massive auto-reject pile.

No, I didn't receive a Rothman invitation. Based on your stats, you are definitely not sitting in an auto-reject pile.
