man...you guys are pissing me off. im applying to USC with a 1290, 4.0, rank 1/270, ok rec., ok EC's, and no SAT II's. It's my #1 choice...I hope I get in...but i guess my stats are kinda low.
You guys shuldnt apply if you dont plan to go there. That way, I have more chances with my lower stats. :).

I might apply for engineering. Depends if I have to write additional essays or whatnot. Probably just gonna be a backup school cause its California! Is USC a backup for me?

Son is applying to USC-Music performance. Any idea on how many are accepted for music?

By Kewkiekid (Kewkiekid) on Monday, November 03, 2003 - 07:19 pm: Edit

applying to USC:

GPA ~3.2 (including _everything_ even PE and such)
SAT I 1380 (720M/660V)
SAT II Writing 680
SAT II Math IC 680
SAT II Literature 620
ACT 30

Rank in 2nd decile

great EC's
strong rec's

major : Jewish Studies or Elementary Education

i'm pretty sure i'll get in b/c they're specifically recruiting jewish students, and i've had several contacts with the recruiter for that. :D

Bart_Simpson22, Whatever 17-

I had a 1290 SAT and about a 4.1 weighted gpa and got in this past year. Don't freak out about your stats!

P.S.- Everyone seriously consider USC!!! It's an amazing school and I'm loving every second of it!

By Yli24 (Yli24) on Tuesday, November 04, 2003 - 12:03 am: Edit

Whatever 17...i'm with you. but you're 1/200something...you're still up there. lol

i'm just plain 1330...93.something unweighted GPA(i don't nkow which scale to use anymore. so i'm just gonna stick with the 93.something), 102something weighted, lots of music stuff, but not sending in a tape or anything...10/174

Marshall School of Business...or pre-business if i can't get in.

or undecided

By Spearhead (Spearhead) on Tuesday, November 04, 2003 - 07:26 pm: Edit

How do you apply directly to the Marshall School of Business? I thought everyone had to go in as pre-business and then apply for Junior year?

By Uschicka (Uschicka) on Tuesday, November 04, 2003 - 07:40 pm: Edit

Actually, if I remember right- it's been a year- you have to apply under prebusiness, but they review everyone, and certain applicants get put straight into the business school. Everyone else stays with pre-business. If you don't get into the business school as a freshman, you apply during sophomore year.

You people are making me cry. Stop being such overachievers!

3.8 Unweighted, 4.8 weighted
ranked 17 out of 1159 (top 2%)
SAT- took it in Nov, havent gotten the scores yet but I'm guessing around 900 (i hate me, and i prepared too!)

My essay and recs are gonna suck. What is everyone doing for their essays? ]

I'm applying to the school of theater.

Does USC calculate GPA? Similar top the UC's?

By Emyh (Emyh) on Thursday, November 06, 2003 - 11:41 pm: Edit

Both -
1340 SAT
SAT 2: Math IC - 650, US History - 740, Writing (retook in Nov)
9 APs
3.5something UW, 4.15 W GPA
Applying to Annenberg School
Class Rank: 97/809
Typical awards & ECs - too lazy to type

Major - Print Journalism or Public Relations

By Uschicka (Uschicka) on Friday, November 07, 2003 - 01:43 am: Edit

Ignore what I said before. You don't have to wait until sophomore year to apply for the business school if you don't immediately get in. If you complete Writ 140, one econ course, and Math 117 or 118 you can apply. A lot of people finish those first semester freshman year, and can apply for second semester.

By Freudboy (Freudboy) on Friday, November 07, 2003 - 03:20 am: Edit

By Freudboy (Freudboy) on Sunday, November 09, 2003 - 06:25 pm: Edit
