Same, I think they are holding on to us as back-ups, in other words we are the waitlist to the waitlist lol.

They probably thought we were good enough to be students, but we didn't catch their eye (or they did some statistical wizardry and though the chance of us attending was too low or something) so now we are in purgatory XD
So you're saying there's a chance...I'll take it.

Watch the ringer, Dr. Arias is out here handing out scholarships. Just got the call for a half tuition!

are people filling out the roommate interest form only if they are 100% they're going to keck ? Or is anyone filling it out just because they are most likely going?

I'm filling it out because I'm pretty sure but not 100%

I wonder if USC did away with the full schollys to give more people half schollys and subsequently increase yield that way

I don’t understand the separation in hours. In 6+ months, the difference was hours on a mailing list email?

Just got the pre ii R as well. For those wondering about staggering emails- apparently if you send to too many people at once the likelihood of the email being flagged as spam so they probably did it in batches oof

Can someone who is a current student or who interviewed (and got a good feel for the curriculum) comment on what percent of time is spent doing PBL versus sitting in traditional lectures?

I found a few comments from 2016-2018 and about the dental school but I’m wondering if the ratio has changed and/or if lectures have been nixed entirely

I want 100% (or close to) PBL. No traditional lectures (not even recorded)

I was rejected today but am preparing to reapply. Don’t know if USC should stay on my list

Idk about all the other stuff, but I would say to be cognizant of being a reapplicant to USC. One of the earlier R waves was almost straight reapplicants. (Check this thread around August 14th) I am not sure if that trend continued, but USC does not seem to look favorably on reapplicants.

Ah ok thank you. Were you accepted? If so, what do you know about the curriculum?

Barking up the wrong tree, buddy. My interview was months ago and I remember little from it. I would recommend just looking it up on their website or messaging a current student :shrug:

I interviewed a few months ago and from what I can remember this is a heavily lecture-based school. The students I interviewed/toured with basically never went to class and just watched recorded lectures. All their tests are exactly taught to STEP. Feel free to correct me anyone who is a student or remembers differently, but I don't really remember PBL being a part of their curriculum pitch (seems like most schools are trying to include this nowadays).

Anyone get a phone call yesterday post ii?
So I interviewed 2 weeks ago. Got a phone call from the LA number yesterday around 1:30 pm west coast. I answered and heard "hello" and I said hello and then the call ended after 9 seconds before I heard anything else. Tried to call back and couldn't get through. What does this mean

Are there separate "second look" events? I see people being invited for a morning "Accepted Students Day" event vs. "Accepted Students" dinner on that same evening!
