We enjoyed our quick CA weekend and "admitted students day" was fun and informative. Nothing really new at the "spring admit" session however my D really enjoyed meeting several other spring admits that day. Although we've been to the campus twice before, she loved it even more knowing she would be going there!
Hi everybody! My name is Lydia and I am a Spring Admit for 2013 and I am trying to decide between going to USC in the Spring or starting out at the University of Illinois and seeing how I like it there. However, USC is my top choice and my dream school. I am debating whether I should move out to LA in the fall (if I don't get bumped up to fall admission) and either work or go to a community college to take some courses. Anyways, I was thinking of living in University Gateway where my sister who will be a Junior at USC lives, but I will need roommates considering it is very expensive! I was wondering if there are any other spring admits who would consider this option! Let me know!
USC encourages spring admits to go to a cc probably so they dont take away a spot at a 4 year school from someone else. My D was accepted into U of I but really never wanted to go there so she will be a spring admit at USC. I think if you could see yourself at U of I and want to "try it out" you should go there. If you are nearly certain you will go to USC in the spring, it's probably not worth getting all cozy there only to pick up and leave a few months later. P.s. are you from IL? We live in Rockford.
I am from Evanston. My big concern starting out as a spring admit at USC is making friends coming in second semester and the fact that USC doesn't guarantee housing for spring admits, so I've heard. If I can find some other spring admits to live with in Gateway in the fall, then I will consider just holding out until the spring, otherwise, I'll probably go to U of I.
Lydiagrace - are you on the Facebook page "USC class of 2016 spring admits"? My D tells me there are many spring students looking for fall roomates in Gateway. My D will be moving to Orange County, CA in the fall (because we have family there) and has already met many other spring admits on Facebook and at Admitted Students Day last weekend. It seems like a very friendly group. Check out the Facebook page and if you would like my D's email address, message me privately.
Congratulations to collegemom48 and UCapplicantdc (hmm on your nom, UC... heh). Such good news. I know you will be extra friendly to all the spring admits who are not so fortunate. This way, they'll all have FB friends from the spring-admit thread to meet and connect with when they do get to campus.
Hang in there spring folk. These bumps tend to be decided by room in one's major/School and a bit of good old-fashioned luck.
