USC housing application

<p>I'm getting a little worried, because it seems that some have already heard back from USC regarding housing. I already paid the $30 housing application fee online, and am up to step 4, which is the roommate selection site. But it says I can't continue to confirm a room until I hear back/get an e-mail from them. I submitted my application about 2-3 weeks ago, and already put the USC deposit down.</p>

<p>Also, after I paid the $30, if I made any changes to the housing application (re-ordered the housing preferences/dorms list), would that affect my "spot" in line? Thanks!</p>

<p>i don't think anyone's heard back yet. housing assignments won't go out until mid-may (when everyone's committed).</p>

<p>I contacted housing regarding this same issue. They said that updating housing preferences would not bump one "to the back of the line" for housing, but that preference will be given according to when your housing deposit was turned in. </p>

<p>I think that those who have already been assigned housing on here are actually current students and are speaking of their housing assignments for next year.</p>

<p>When you say "...when your housing deposit was turned in", is that when we paid the $30 fee and said at Step 4 to wait for an e-mail from USC before going on to Step 5?</p>

<p>Thanks! I'm very relieved that we weren't bumped to the "back of the line".</p>

<p>Also, even if we don't use the "auto search" features in the roommates section of the application, will USC automatically pair us up with someone with the highest % match?</p>
