I’m a current sophomore at a CCC seeking to transfer to USC’s Marshall School of Business for Fall 2021. My GPA is currently sitting at a 3.82 and I have already satisfied Marshall’s Writing 130 & Math 118 requirements at my CC. I have completed the Financial and Managerial Accounting courses as well. I passed all these courses with A’s. I’m currently working on completing Economics 1 & 2 along with the final rest of my GE’s which should all be satisfied by the end of the upcoming spring semester.
However, at my CC; in order to take Math 118, students must take Math 117. Unfortunately, I withdrew from Math 117 twice my freshman year because I was going through some personal stuff that was affecting me academically. Fortunately, I was able to pass my third time and was able to move on to Math 118. I have not failed any courses and the lowest grades I have received are 2 B’s. The rest are straight A’s. I was also working a part-time job during that time and continue to work now.
Another thought that worries me is that I do not have as many clubs/extracurriculars on my list as I would like. It was difficult to join any clubs and organizations this year because of remote learning. Numerous clubs/organizations at my CC took a pause this year due to COVID. Although, I was and still am apart of the First-Year Experience Program at my CC if that counts? I am also First-Gen if that’s worth considering. I know the personal statements play an incredibly huge factor when it comes to admissions. So, I’m working to craft them to the best of my ability and will probably ask my writing professor to give me her thoughts on them before I submit them.
USC is without a doubt a reach school for me but it is my dream school and nothing would make me happier than to be able to join the Trojan family.
I’m aware that no one here can give me a final decision but I’d like to hear some of your thoughts. What do you think my chances are at getting into USC? Thank you
