<p>For all past and present spring admits out there, did any of you consider applying to other colleges (for a spot in their freshman class the following fall) before starting at USC in January?</p>
<p>This certainly isn't ethical, but several loopholes do exist:
-Most colleges have a policy mandating that "students who have completed two or more semesters of college coursework may only apply as transfers, not freshmen." As a spring admit, you would only complete ONE semester.
-College applications are due around January 1 or 2, but USC classes do not begin until a week or so after that, so at the time you applied, you technically wouldn't be a USC student.</p>
<p>I would really like to give the college admissions process another go, but I won't have the credits to transfer as a spring admit, so my only other option is re-applying. Ideally, I'd like to be able to attend USC for a semester after submitting all my new applications, so I won't be at home waiting for the decisions, doing nothing after taking classes and re-taking the SAT in the fall.</p>
<p>Obviously USC wouldn't be too happy about this, but could they rescind my offer of admission? Could other schools reject me on the basis of applying and then enrolling elsewhere for a semester? Has anybody else done this, or considered doing it?</p>
