    You look like a good match, it may be helpful if you improve your GPA just a tad.

    samlynne899, duh, I'm not an expert by any means, but I don't think you will have any issues getting into USC. Keep up the good work!

    speaking of hijacking threads...

    are you referring to my comment? because 'getting in- class of 2016' implies that whoever wants to apply for 2016 can post. if you wanted solely you're credentials looked at, next time put something like 'chance me' or 'what are my chances' instead of including the entire class of 2016
