    I guess its sporadic and it might just seem that way because of how small the number of applicants active on CC are compared to the actual number of applicants. I hope this was the first of several waves to come seeing as my status has not changed, but...

    This is just my desperate estimate and logical analysis, I am not knowledgeable or insightful enough make any real speculations -by the way.

    "The committee has acted on your application, and we have mailed notice of the decision. "

    @yoskis No the first time I checked was after I saw a post on CC Saturday morning.

    ah, ok. my hunch is that they were all sent in one wave and that was it, we will see if anyone gets a packet tomorrow without getting a status change.....

    My Ds status changed Saturday morning. Friday night she still had the generic "we received bla bla bla".

    Saw my son's status change this morning, but I have no idea when it happened. We are in Florida.

    WAIT, ARE YOU GUYS SAYING A STATUS CHANGE MEANS YOU GOT A MERIT SCHOLARSHIP???

    I'm doing the best research I can, but I'm just too overwhelmed to be sure of what I'm understanding. I haven't gotten anything in the mail, but my status now says "The committee has acted on your application, and we have mailed notice of the decision. If for some reason you do not receive our written notice, we will be happy to provide the results of this online through USConnect March 29th at noon Pacific Time." I live in Texas.

    Thanks for any clarification!

    Actually, nobody knows what it means. All I can tell to is that trusted sources don't know exactly whats happening and that in the past things like this have been indicative of a merit scholarship. some people have reported getting a status change and then receiving notification in the mail. All of this information can be found in the first 5 or 6 threads on the main USC CC page. However, since some of us have received this notice and others haven't there is a fair chance that it means something good for those whose status was updated.

    In the past the status change to "acted on..." has been a reliable indicator that a package was on its way. At this point in the cycle that means an acceptance (later in the cycle - late March - it may mean an acceptance OR a rejection). Those accepted at this point in the cycle have traditionally either been awarded a Dean's 1/4 tuition scholarship in mid-February outright or have been invited to interview for a Presidential, Trustee, Stamps or Mork. This year it appears the scholarship interview invitations are arriving with the acceptance packet. Those who do not get the invite may receive notice of Dean's in mid-February.

    International students have, in the past, received DHL emails saying a package was on the way.

    Thank you Alamemom for clearing that up. Do you happen to know if letters of scholarship rejection - " your are still being considered for admission..." arrive around this time as well?
  • alamemomalamemom Registered User Posts: 6,384 Senior Member
    The "no scholarship" letter, which typically asks that mid-term grades be submitted (if they haven't already) has arrived in mid-February. However, some applicants reported not receiving one at all. I am hoping (so this is just a hope of mine - not actual information) that this year they decide to send out an email all at once saying that applicants have not been invited to interview for scholarships - reducing the waiting might reduce the stress and sadness a bit :)

    I live in Hawaii and I'm still waiting. I think I'm going to accept defeat if nothing arrives by Tuesday.

    In AZ, still haven't seen a status change. Don't lose hope, Trojans
