Admissions Interview: Yes - I met with my brother's previous teacher who is now an Associate dean. I'm not sure if you could call it an admissions interview though, it was more of a getting to know you. Nothing formal.
Information Session: Yes - Great information given and all questions were answered.
Campus Tour: Yes - Good information, but it was kind of boring. I did leave early because my brother was with me and he showed me a lot of the campus beforehand.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Sort of. I didn't sit in at a class as I visited in the summer. However, I went in to a few classrooms and they looked very nice and hi-tech.

Campus Visit Notes for University of Southern California
I really loved the Communications department. Everyone was so nice and were more friendly than professional. They joked around with me telling me how much better Annenberg is than Marshall. Just really down to earth nice people. Everyone I met was always nice enough to take time to meet with me. I had nothing scheduled with any of the staff, but a teacher took 10 minutes to meet with me and the Associate Dean met with me for about 20 minutes even though I just dropped in. Everything about my visit just felt right, like I was at home. If I get accepted, I would love to come despite the financial burden it would create.
