PANIC MODE: Should I Apply to USC?

<p>I started the USC common app weeks ago. But after the UC deadline passed I got lazy and didnt follow up on USC.</p>

<p>I havent sent my high school or college transcripts
and I still would have to finish the essays
also, no recommendation letter</p>

<p>Should I gove it a shot, or just forget about it.
The reason I considered not applying is because of the cost.... help!</p>

<p>Well it is possible. If you can get your transcripts post marked like tmrw. Essays shouldn't be too hard. But you do want to give them your best shot. I didn't sent and Letters of Rec. :/</p>

<p>Also there is Financial aid calculator floating around you can use. To get an estimate of what you will have to pay.</p>

<p>USC</a> Financial Aid : Net Price Calculator</p>

<p>I'm in the same boat. I'm still applying though as an undecided major.</p>

<p>why the rush, I thought apps are not due till march 1</p>

<p>Apps are due at Feb 1 11:59pm</p>

<p>approximately 24 and a half hours from now.</p>

<p>regarding the essays, just copy and paste your UC essays and delete a few sentences, add a few sentences</p>

<p>thats what im doing</p>

<p>So high school transcripts have to be sent by the application deadline? I applied to the UC's already, and didn't have to do this I don't think. Now that I'm doing OOS schools, I realized I have to contact my high school ASAP. Unfortunately, I graduated from Japan so it's not the easiest thing in the world to do.</p>

<p>My Wisconsin app is due tomorrow, so I'm definitely not going to have my transcript postmarked on time. Is Wisconsin a lost cause then?</p>

<p>You don't have to have the transcripts postmarked by today. You can email USC and tell them why they will be late. They said you can send them in 1-2 weeks from now</p>
