CONGRATULATIONS: USC Admitted Class of 2018 with Merit

madbeanmadbean Registered User Posts: 3,236 Senior Member
It's great to get an overall feel for the CCers who have received early notification of their admission to USC. Congratulations to all of you and Fight on! In addition, all of these new admits will receive merit money and some are invited to interview for USC's competitive merit scholarships. I've started a list, as I do every year, to gather all the good news in one spot. I used info you posted on many other threads to organize it and give us all an overview, listing user name, School/major, and location if you reported it, by scholarship level if you reported that. To add your name, please copy and paste this list and add your name if it's not yet posted, and apologies if I mixed up info. Please correct any misinformation on this first pass. Most of all, enjoy a moment of relief! We parents who have been through this ordeal (I had two go through the process), are sharing in the good news and sending extra good luck vibes to the thousands of wonderful students still waiting for news.

    I just got my acceptance letter with the date January 24th, 2014. However, it didn't say anything about a scholarship. Nobody else from my school has heard back yet and I was under the impression that the 24th was when merit-based letters were sent out, so does that mean I got some form of scholarship or that I'm up for a scholarship consideration? Thank you!

    @madbean do you know if anyone has heard anything from annenberg school of comm and journalism?

    Yeah @aac5449 I'm in the same situation as you (and I know @Shutterstock is as well). I got the official acceptance letter and certificate and everything, but there was no mention of a specific scholarship. Although I know a couple people are in the same boat as us, everyone else seems to know what scholarship they are finalists for. I'm still a little confused, especially being included in the January acceptances...

    I was totally confused about mine as well -the letters listed the options ("finalist for x, y, or z"), but didn't specify which one. Then I noticed the labeling at the bottom of the "Explore USC" cover...Check there!

    @rjk766--one of the reasons we compile this list is to see which Schools/majors are represented. Look for yourself, but so far I don't see anyone identifying themselves as Annenberg.

    @yaleandbama--good luck! (Although your nom seems to hint at where your heart lies?)

    @actstudent--check other threads for speculation on that question. http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-southern-california/1597366-tips-insights-observations-and-scoop-on-usc-s-top-merit-scholarships.html#latest
