    You don't actually get a waitlist number till after the decisions are made on the March interviewees. If I remember correctly, last year there were about 100 people on the final waitlist (around mid April). I was #22 and got in around July. I figure atleast 25-30 people got accepted off the waitlist.

      Jackanese -

      Thanks for the reply :) It sounded like they have several more than that on the list, from my interview session alone they said they waitlisted about 72. I believe the last set of interviews were this past weekend - Did they contact you and let you know your number once they had decided?

      Thanks again

        Thats where its confusing. Theres a difference between active consideration and waitlist. You'll find out soon when USC finalizes the march interview decisions. About 50% of the people on the active consideration list from the first 3 interviews will get a rejection letter, the rest, if not accepted, will be placed on the waitlist along with the last 4th interview students. I was on active consideration last year and progressed to the waitlist. If you have any further questions just PM me. I hope I did a good job of explaining it.

          the admissions people were not nice on the phone... they refused to talk to me about the stats of people getting off the active consideration list. though i do imagine they must've received a gazillion of those calls...

            Haha. Now is not a good time to call. I can imagine them so busy finalizing everything now that the 4th interview just completed.

              Did you send anything or do anything to further accelerate getting off the wait list?
