Hello. I was wondering if any applicants have recently heard back with a decision from USC after their interview. I interviewed back in November and have been on hold ever since then. Just curious about what's going on with the program and whether my situation is typical. Thanks!

I didn't apply to USC, but I am on hold with several program. Been that way since November. It sucks, but hopefully something will work out for both of us soon.

You can always contact the school and ask them when they make decisions on their "hold" applicants. I've done this with several, and it looks like most schools will be making decisions sometime in the next few weeks.

Thay have already handed out six acceptance, but I know of at least one spot that will open up, hint...hint, and hopfully you will hear something in a few weeks.

I'm sure quite a few schools will be contacting people on the waitlist within a month. The early deadline (April 15, 19th for cornell) is coming up, and it seems to me that quite a few people have made up their minds. hang in there, I know it's tough... I'm waitlisted at 1 school and I may change my mind if I come off of it.

I just found out that I was waitlisted by USC. Is there anyone else on the same boat? My dad believes very strongly that I should go to NYU (my only acceptance so far), but I'm placing USC much higher on my list. Am I out of my mind? :rolleyes:

Hey,
That's what I heard last year. They wait for people to drop. I didn't end up going to the program so I do not know if things have changed. Good Luck!
