Congrats to all those who are accepted and waitlisted!

I am worried about my decision. after interview on 14th of Feb I got an email on 20th of Feb from USC to complete financial support documents. I completed all those documents and after that I again got an email on 25th of Feb stating that my IELTS score is missing. I have resent it but I don't know whether it has reached there or not. After that no reply. I worry that I might have been rejected.
Where are you from?

I am from India. I am in the state of confusion. My interviewer praised my submission 3 times in the interview and also told me to complete the application soon. after that I got email to complete the IELTS scores and financial support thing. Haven't received any decision yet. I just give up all the hopes.

Hmmm, don't think you should worry that much, I didn't even have interview. :( ... What does your application status say?

it says that my file has been forwarded to review etc. same as old status. I don't know. May be my IELTS scores are still missing and that may be the reason but I my instinct says that my application might have been rejected. I am unable to log in to camel2 link. I got access to that second link which have been posted recently. I have made up my mind for worst. I wish you best luck. Lets keep waiting.

You're much farther away man. I didn't get the email, but did get a letter in the mail. Don't write it off till you know

Hi all!

I also got a waitlist letter without an email (for the writing for screen and television program). Trying to stay optimistic!

Hi all, I received my official acceptance email on Monday. It read: "Congratulations on your admission to graduate study at the University of Southern California! Your official letter of admission is being sent to your current address."

Bit of a late bloomer. I'm a 34 year old international production applicant from Toronto. I completed my undergrad in film about 11 years ago. I've been working since then, and i've accomplished quite a bit here. But I'm so excited to be pursuing my dreams in LA where I hope to make my mark.

I wish everyone the best of luck. I know the feeing. The days, weeks, months leading up to now were terrifying. Stay strong and believe in yourself.

Oh cool...

I faced this issue for my AFI application... You need to regularly keep in touch with both British council and admissions dept.
First ask your BC rep. to directly mail the admission executive keeping you in CC stating that the scores were sent from their part. With this you have the mail as a proof of technical discrepancy in the transfer system
Usually its a server problem.
But the university doesnt claim responsibility even if there is a server problem.
You can then ask the Admissions executive, if they would accept a hard copy of the score, considering your circumstance.
AFI said ok to my request and I had BC send a hard copy via speed post. It reached in 3- 4 days.
And the whole drama ended !!
Moral - donot stop pestering them until you have the problem sorted. Cz its ur application at stake ! :)

Ohh yah. USC already has my hard copy but they are still demanding electronic copy for their records. I have resent the request for the electronic scores . I also have provided bc. Email ids of USC so they might send scores on email ids besides regular server. Let's see Hw it goes. But am bit worried coz of it.

In that case keep both departments in loop while you are mailing a request for status update

Mine is too. I emailed admissions about it, just in case something might be missing from my application that is delaying it's review process, but they never responded. I'm not even trying to understand anymore...what is supposed to be, will be.
