Obsessed

I know this is pretty random but is anyone else as obsessed about getting in to USC as I am? I swear, I fantasize about receiving an acceptance letter almost every second of the day, and I'm not even done with my application letter yet!

    Same here. I'm thinking about USC 24/7. I swear I'll go crazy if I get that letter!

    I'm pretty darn obsessed with USC too. My brother teases me about always having at least 1 (and usually more) USC tabs open on my browser at any given time. Even the key to my home is a USC key though I haven't even finished my application yet. :P

    That obsession can actually last a very long time. (I'm proof.)

    I'm the same! I seem to spend far too long obsessing about USC and not enough time actually preparing.

    To all the obsessed hopefuls: is USC your first choice? I would imagine so, but sometimes people get obsessed with all the colleges they apply to. :P

    What is your first-choice major at USC? Mine is business administration.

    Mines Music Industry in Thornton.

    How is everyone coming on with their application? ie. How much of it have you completed so far? I haven't started writing my essay yet and I'm a bit worried I'm leaving it too late!

    I'm working on my application and I think I'll be fine. I already wrote my first essay draft but I still have to take the SAT because im Dutch, hopefully I will get a good score.

    I've finished everything except the two biggies: the essay and the short answers. I've done brainstorming for them, though, and this weekend is probably the weekend I'm really going to try to whip out my rough drafts.

    As for my major, I'm applying for Writing for Screen and Television. For that, I've finished one of my "creative challenge" scenes and have been brainstorming for the other. I know pretty much what I want to write for the "emotional moment" essay too but I have to get working on it!

    I'm also international vistoria!...and I haven't taken my SAT yet either :S

    I think I'm going to work on my essay with weekend as well, if only to give myself some peace of mind that I'm doing something constructive towards USC!

    Really? You're international too? Where are you from?

    How are you preparing yourself for the SAT? English is not my native language so as the date comes closer I'm starting to freak out a little.

    Which essay question are you going to use for your essay?

    Oh, and one other thing... are international students required to take the SAT? Because on Collegeboard it says: required for some.

  • adambedfordadambedford 250 replies47 threads Junior Member
    I'm from England!

    Im probably not preparing enough for the SAT, but I'm using the Official Collegeboard Study Guide and some notes I found on this website.

    It's not required for internationals (unless they attended an american school or an international school studying the american curriculum. I guess you did the IB?...I did A levels so I dont NEED to do it, but I'm applying to other schools which do require it so I have to do it anyway.)

    For the essay I think I'm going to write about a challenge that I overcame through persistence. What about you?

    What standardized tests does USC require for admission?

    USC requires scores from the SAT or the ACT (with optional writing component) from:

    --All freshman applicants (including international students) who are attending high school in the U.S. (and strongly recommended for students attending high school in Canada).
    --Freshman applicants who attend overseas American or International schools that follow the U.S. education system.

    Eiffel, I see you on here all the time. I'm applying to the School of Cinematic Arts as well (first choice is Production, second choice is Critical Studies).

    ^Haha, yep, I'm here all the time. Just another piece of evidence for the claim that I am, indeed, obsessed with USC. :) And *high-five* for applying to SCA too! How far along are you in your portfolio?

    Wow, when I started this thread I swear I didn't expect this many fellow obsessees! I'm applying to SCA too! First choice major Production, second choice Writing for Screen & TV. Applying as a transfer since I already graduated from a polytechnic, so not too sure what my chances are. But my jaw literally dropped when I saw the amount of work we had to do for SCA supplements!

  • EiffelEiffel 1191 replies179 threads Senior Member
    ^So, wait...are you doing the supplements for both Production and Writing and submitting both of them? Also, does it really make sense to do that...because how many SCA majors are really going to admit those who have the major as their second--and not first--choice?
