I've called them a few times, and gotten mixed answers just about every time.

Once I was told that the school only hands out a few acceptances until they're all done, while another time the person on the phone said that 160 acceptees (class size) were given by March 15. What's the truth? I know USC is supposed to be semi-rolling, but what does that mean, EXACTLY? Does it mean that the minimum number of applicants are accepted by the AAMC date, while everybody afterward is only being considered for a waitlist spot?

Anyway, has anybody gotten in after March 15?

Members don't see this ad.
I am wondering about this too. I haven't heard of anybody getting in. I called USC and found that the class does not have to be full until March 29 due to the delays with AMACS. So I guess this Friday is the magical date (or the following Monday or Tuesday when mail arrives). I am crossing my fingers - its the last school I have yet to hear from. I have no doubt I will be put on another waitlist. Yea!
