Do I Need a Recommendation letter?

<p>I'm applying to USC ( College of letter and Arts ) as a transfer student. I remember long time ago I had read that I need a recommendation letter but now I can't seem to find the information. My counselor said I didn't need one but i'm still not sure.</p>

<p>well, it wont hurt you that's for sure. i had my professor who happened to be a usc alumni write me mine. ;) the two biggest deciding factors imo are your gpa, and your EC's. your gpa will get your foot in the door, and your EC's is what makes you stand out. ultimately they look for how you will make an impact at usc.</p>
