    I wanted to check and see if anyone here is applying for the 2018 spring semester at USC?

    If so has anyone started their application yet?

    Has anyone heard back yet? Anyone have any idea when they'll begin offering decisions?

    I am assuming towards the end of October and beginning of November is when we'll hear back. The past years suggest that.

    Yes I think last year decisions came fairly late.

    I applied too. I recently spoke with admissions and we are expected to hear something back mid-October to early November. Gahhh the suspense is killing me!

    I had an interview this past weekend. Just waiting to hear back now! *Fingers crossed* But, remember just because you do not get an interview does not mean it is over and just because you get one does not guarantee that you are in.

    By the way, my visual sample is linked to my vimeo. The interesting thing is that I haven't received any clicks from California, does anybody else have this issue lol? I am wondering whether vimeo counts clicks from slideroom. Thanks!

    My views increased as well but I wasn't sure if it was from the admissions office, my mother (lol), or from me going to look on my page from different devices, so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. I just don't think that Vimeo is counting the Slideroom app views since it our videos were embedded in our applications.

    Nothing yet, but I have certainly been checking everyday (mail, email, and you.usc.edu). How about you? Have you heard anything?

    I applied as well. I'm pretty sure they viewed my portfolio as Vimeo tells me "the source" aka a view from slide room.
    They viewed it on Oct 7th (Not from California actually).
    I didn't get an interview which is concerning.
    Didn't hear anything yet. Good luck everyone.

    Don't worry, no one has received notification of acceptance yet. So, for all we know they are still conducting interviews and reviewing files. Make sure to check your SPAM folder everyday so that you don't miss anything important. Also, you don't necessarily need an interview to get in. People have been accepted in past years without one. Hang in there and good luck! :)
