@3kids2dogs I was actually wondering about this as well. And, do you mind telling me if you received an invitation to the HC application or did you just find it online? I’m a little confused about the process for that. My D is wanting to apply and from what the USC website says, the HC application will become available once the general application has been submitted. However, she submitted her application weeks ago and hasn’t received any notification about the HC application. I looked at the website again yesterday and it said the HC application would be available Sept. 1. It’s now Sept. 2 and I still can’t find it anywhere. Am I missing something? It’s so confusing. Just want her to be able to submit it within a timely manner.
My daughter received an email with invitation to apply to honors (I think about a week after she submitted her regular app). There was a personal statement and 2 additional 500-1000 word essay. One about intellectual curiosity and one about actions taken outside of the classroom (or something like that) and a resume (but I think that is optional). I feel like optional means do it though
