Seeing as USC is my top school, I'm doing all that I possibly can to set a good impression. Unfortunately, my SAT scores aren't all too hot (1880, but I"m retaking, thank goodness), I have a 3.85 UW GPA, and many EC's. I will most definitely set up an interview. I'm thinkin of compiling a portfolio of all my writing samples, certificates, samples of work, etc. so that I can just show my interviewer my good points (I want to go into Communications). Is that good or could I just send these things in the app, or would this just be totally a bore like "I've already seen you have hours, I don't need to see your certificate!"
Also, can anyone who had an interview tell me what they ask, the gist of the questions, HOW DID IT GO!??, ADVICE...,ETC. Im fine talking with people, but interviews ALWAYS scare the crap out of me, how ironic. Thanks for the help!!!!
