Thank you! I know that a fall waitlist means a confirmed seat in spring. But not sure if a spring waitlist carries over to fall. Does anyone know how this works?
Hey! I emailed and asked USC about if Spring waitlists carry over to the fall. Unfortunately not :( I wish it did. It doesn't really make sense to me that we work on an application due in August and then have to make a new one just a couple months later.

Congrats, guys! It is still a big achievement, and I hope that just means with some adjustments, your Spring application would be good to go and amaze them comes the Fall.

I've been there, got rejected, and ate too many pints of ice cream afterward. Please reach out if you ever need support or another set of eyes on your personal statement. I'd be happy to help :)
 
Hi does anyone one who got accepted could help me with the application and essay? This is the second time I'm applying but I haven't heard anything yet. I don't want to wait till last second... I really have to get in to a grad school for next fall. Please If anyone would have time do you mind to share a bit thoughts on how you approach the essays? That would really be so helpful for me! 😖 you can shoot me a private msg. Thank you so much!!!

In a year like this anything's possible.

@ fellow international applicants, have any of you gotten any decisions at all? I heard USC might go fully virtual next semester depending on LA COVID ordinances, and I'm wondering how this'll affect how they consider our applications.

I'm an international applicant and got admitted still. I am still in the US though, but I did not mention that in the application.

And yes, they're going virtual, unfortunately :(
