    They said that they would reply to us within 3 to 4 weeks during the interview. As of this week, we are on the 4th one, so will they reply to us by now... I am like sooo nervous constantly since I didnt feel that I did well on the interview.
    Anyone heard from them yet?
    I tried calling, and a lady kept on telling me that she does not know anything about it, and that what they said during the interview is what will happen. 4th week... scaried...

    p.s. : I really think 20 minutes is not enough for an interview and judge someone, especially then they can be nervous as hell... not fair if they reject me cuz of my poor interview skills... grrr. :mad:

    Finally someone posted the status for USC. It sucks that we have to wait for so loooooooong. Some schools let you know in a week or two. But I guess it's worth the wait. But I think next week is the week. The lady told me that we should be hearing from them before Christmas (may be around Dec 12 +/- a day or two) hahaha

    Good luck

    I agree....a 20-minute interview is not enough. This was my very first interview and in the end...I wasn't too happy at all. Let's just keep our fingers crossed...

    Does anyone know if USC will also send out an email notification of acceptance? Because that would be ~2days faster than mail notification, meaning less chance for me to develop ulcer.

    hahha... But to answer your question, I don't think they send it through email. I know they just send you either a big envelope or a small one.

    well, I spoke to a few other ppl who was accepted to usc before, and they said that they got their letter right on the dot, exactly 4 week after the interview.
    So.. in theory, we will get our letters this saturday....
    Good luck everyone...

    Didn't they say during the interview that all the envelope will be the same size. If I see anything from them, I am just going to rip it open. The wait is eating me up more than the actual result.. ^_^

    I didn't know schools would release that information.

    When I was applying to college for undergrad no one would release that kind of info.

    I just checked my mailbox...nothing from USC yet. Fear is starting to weaken my confidence. So far, everyone who got a USC packet and post on this forum was accepted. Could it be that the most qualified are notified of their acceptance first, while the less favored will learn about their status later?

    whatever usc is doing.. it isnt funny... :mad:
    i mean.. if they will do that.. might was well tell us if we get accepted over the phone so we dont have to wait... :idea:
    plus as of today.. it is alrdy over 4th week... they didnt keep their words..
    (i know i am strict... just want to know the results..... i think as of now... the result is less important than me actually knowing it and not having to wait and wait like this)

    OMG... I'm going to USC!!!!!!

    :clap: :clap: :clap:

    I was sooooo expecting a waitlist letter. I ripped open the manila evelope and opened the gold-embossed "USC" folder. "The Admission Committee of USC School of Pharmacy is pleased to inform you..."

    I couldn't stop screaming (and jumping). My 3 year old son looked at me like I was crazy... then he started crying. :oops:

    looks like all those who got their letter were accepted... does that mean those who havent got the letter is waitlisted (most school send out acceptance letter before wait-listed or rejection letters)








    i hate usc now... :(

    but grats on those who made it in.. ;)
    objects of my admiration...

    Word. I know how you're feeling. I live closer to USC than the people that got accepted so far on this forum, and it would be nice to know if I got in or not so I would know if I had to keep interviewing with other schools. :(

    Just curious, for those of you who have been accepted already, is there any exceptional quality that you think makes you stand out among other applicants--like extroardinary GPA or outstanding volunteer experience. I don't think I particularly stand out, and it seems I may be on the waitlist. +pity+

    Congrats to all those that got their letter on Friday! :)

    For those who have yet to hear from them, maybe this will help calm you a little bit: I called usc and the lady told me that they split the letters into 2 batches to be mailed this time, instead of their usual one big batch that they do (dont' ask me why they would do such a mean thing to us haha >_<).... so on friday, they were still working on sending them out. The 2nd batch will be mailed on Monday ~

    feel a lil' better? :)

    however, i'll say that i have nooooo idea whether or not the 2 batches both include acceptance letters... or just the first one.... so in that sense, i'm not feeling that much better at all... haha

    May be USC is reviewing the applicants by their interview time, starting from earliest to the latest? May be that's why some of us still havent got the package yet! :) I like to think that way. hahahha..oh well... Just have to be positive and patience :D

    Out of curiosity, how many of us will call USC on Monday to find out what's going on since we haven't heard anything yet? I know I will. :D

    I called USC in the afternoon and they said that they are mailing the second batch of letters today. So those who have not heard from them yet should hear from them on Wednesday.

    Does anyone know exactly how many people they are accepting from the 150 people who interviewed on November 12th?

    I remember Jim or someone saying the top 30 and at most 40. I guess I'll have to wait until Wednesday. I'll take anything about now because reading all these posts is making me worried.

    Give me rejection! Give me peace! +pissed+

    It's weird. I just called USC to ask if all acceptance letters were sent out in the first round. The lady replied that all who were interviewed HAVE got their letters. I told her I was interviewed but still have not got mine, but she said that that meant they had not evaluated me. That's still contradictory because they should be sending out the second packet today. If they have not evaluated me and I was in the first interview, does that mean I will go to another interview??? :eek:

    One thing for sure is that she sounds out of patience, guess we should give USC a break and wait until Wednesday.
