Official USC 2012 Transfer Thread

edited October 2012 in Transfer Students
It's early but seems there is a demand for this thread. I would prefer if we stayed away from posting stats and asking for chance me probabilities because the thread becomes cluttered and the valuable information becomes hard to find.

Other than that feel free to post concerns, questions, replies, etc, and good luck to everyone applying!

    hey Mitch!
    There's one thread starting already in the "USC 2014"

    just wanted to let you know, I'd think it'd be better if the thread was here though!

    I just became aware of that. Last year's thread was in transfer sub-section and had over 6,000 posts. I do agree though but it doesn't matter to me. Up to the other posters.

    I think it works better here. After all, this IS the transfer forum.

    I just now found this thread, haha.

    Well, I'll follow both and whichever takes off should be the main one.

    Hey all :)

    I joined this site just to join this transfer thread, haha. Stalked last year's, and it was so useful so since I'm aiming to transfer in fall 2012, here I am.

    Good luck to all of us!

    Count me in as well! I am applying to transfer into Marshall for 2012.

    @giantmidget good to see you again on here. best of luck

    @Transfer2Best Also applying to Marshall

    Any thoughts on their change to the Common App? I'm happy they retained their short take questions.

    @Mitch - I was a bit upset about the essay question being changed to the generic "why do you want to transfer." I'm not too worried about writing it but, I was hoping they'd retain last year's essay questions.

    :\

    Where do you all soon-to-be Trojans think USC is going to be on the coming up USNews Rankings?

    Hey everyone! I'm also looking to transfer in for the Fall of 12' as a junior.
    Quick questions: I had extenuating circumstances with my family life (father's cancer) my freshman year, which, to say the least, affected my academic performance. I'd like to write a short letter to the admissions office explaining myself - do you think they will take it into consideration, granted that it's well thought out, and that there's a significant upward trend of improvement in my academic performance this year? I was hoping to mention this in the essay, but it seems a bit inappropriate considering the topic this year.
    Also, in choosing courses to satisfy the gen ed. requirement - would it be better to take more generalized, comprehensive courses (lower level), or higher level, more focused classes? I only ask because I just got out of my Intro. to Soc. class, I was one of the only sophomores in it, and it sounds like it's going to be much too easy - I feel like admissions wouldn't be impressed, even if with an A.
    Sorry for all the questions, and thanks!

    True but they at least have the Why USC under the supplemental section.

    How much value does the essay/ec's weigh into the applicants decision?
  • LAladyyLAladyy Posts: 226Registered User Junior Member
    Hi guys! Just thought I'd share for those who don't know that USC has transfer Fridays in the fall which are half day information sessions that go over admissions, financial aid, and tour the campus. You can also sometimes meet faculty from the departments you're interested in. Helpful for those of us who are close enough to attend!

    good luck to those of you applying this year! it's a long process but very well worth it in the end...

    I just transferred into Marshall this year as a Junior...
