    Does anyone know if USC calls for interviews upon applicant's request only?

    At university info session earlier this year, we were told USC interviews would no longer be conducted. It was reiterated at SCA info session.

    Has anyone interviewed this year?

    Good Luck to all the applicants! I remember this time last year - it seems so long ago now! My daughter is just finishing her first semester at USC and she *loves* it there. I've visited a few times and each time I have to leave, I am sad to leave the campus! I am curious to see if the applicant numbers go up or stay the same since there was a huge jump last year. I do expect they will accept fewer students because the yield was so much higher that they are having issues with housing. BEST OF LUCK CLASS OF '23!

    @TreeAlum Don’t know if they will accept that many less people this year. The yield went up, but the enrollees stayed the same from ‘21s to ‘22s. Additionally, I believe that the jump in applications won’t be as great as they were last year because of the sexual abuse scandal. Just look at MSU, applicants are down more than 7%. If look to see the Acceptance rate stay relatively steady.

    Even though USC doesn't have Early Decision or Early Action, I've heard that you might get notified early of some merit aid, which usually portends being accepted. Is that true?

    @slimjim005 Yes... if you are notified in January about moving forward in the merit scholarship process, that does also serve as notification of admission. Good Luck.

    @USCkid19 When I was at orientation this past summer, the Dean of Admissions said they were shooting for a class of about 3000, and they ended up with 3400. (They didn't want it to go up from '21, and it did). When you look at the numbers, they accepted about 1000 less trying to get to the smaller class, and if the yield hadn't bumped, it would have been just over 3000. Depending on the number of apps, I do think they will accept fewer students because the large class is giving them housing headaches. As for the scandal, yeah, it will be interesting to see if it has any effect. I still think they were surprised by the huge jump last year! I think the USC Village, the chance for merit, and the sophomore housing guarantee contribute to the bump up in applicants. As a numbers-oriented person, I am excited to see where the numbers end up.

    Does anyone know if they have a target date in January for the merit-scholarship notifications, or is it just any time in January?

    Anyone knows what the next step is in the admission process with USC Marshall/WBB?

    @AggieMom68, next step after WBB app is submitted is waiting for merit scholarship notification in late January. See post #9, directly above yours for details. That was when our son's USC Marshall/WBB acceptance came last year. Settle in, it'll be a long 6 weeks!

    Did anyone else applying to engineering by the merit deadline get the USC Viterbi Magazine in the mail?

    I got a handwritten note from someone in Viterbi admissions inviting me to attend an info session (I'm an OOS student) awhile back. Does this mean anything or do they do this for everyone?

    I received a email from USC yesterday regarding English Language Proficiency Supplement for international student. However, I'm not a international student. I'm a permanent resident. Did any non-international student received the same email? Should I contact AO to clarify?
