USC: do they really read all secondary essays?

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by Sabrina, Feb 20, 2002.

  1. I was wondering. . .do you guys know if USC really reads each and every secondary they receive? I mean. .they send EVERYONE a secondary, so is it logical to assume that they screen secondaries and read only those with high enough stats?

    Did you accidently put UCLA rather than USC on your secondary?? :(

    That would suck!

    I'm not sure if they read all the essays, but when I submitted my secondary I got an interview invitation two days later. I highly doubt it was read thoroughly... Good luck!

    Boy, Sabrina - you sure seem like you really are dying to get into USC. (this thread and your other thread... :) ) USC is one of my top choices, too.
    For the amount of application fees we paid and the amount of effort we put into writing those essays, I sure hope they read carefully. One thing that frustrates me about USC is that they specifically tell you that you can't send them any additional updates or materials. I don't know of any other school that forbids this.
