I spoke with someone who attended USC and he's been giving me advice on how to increase my chances of getting in. He told me to apply at the earliest date possible. I've seen that USC doesn't have an early decision date, only a Regular Decision date, which is 01/15/2017. Is this the date that applications are being taken or is this the date when applications are due?
I want to make sure that I'm applied on the earliest day possible. Thanks!
