I didn't get in either :(
so I applied for the first time for spring 2021 and got interviewed and waitlisted (which was great and exciting!). but for my fall 2021 and spring 2022 applications, i've been outrightly rejected/not offered admission. I don't understand what's going wrong. Is it really just a numbers game? Also, I was interviewed for spring 2022 and the interview lasted for 40minutes. For fall 2021 rejection, I was told to expand my portfolio. I worked all year to prove that I did. Then I was told to expand my portfolio again after spring 2022. I'm prepping a lot of work but they won't be finished before Nov 15th :(

i'm feeling discouraged but i don't know how to be what they're looking for. anyone have any advice or encouragement? thank you

Sorry, you didn't get in. I felt discouraged as well. My advice is to look for some applications that say accepted and attending. Look for some people who have been in school for a year or two. Reach out to a few and ask them if they would be willing to review your application materials. If they would serve as a mentor of some sort. Generally, schools also have what is considered public information: you could probably get a roster from the school if you can't find anyone on here to help. I'm sure someone would be willing to help you. Good luck to you! Also, try another school... USC isn't the only game in town. UCLA app is not due for a month. Send the packet you just sent to USC and see what other schools still have apps for next fall open. Good luck to you!

Is there anybody else who hasn't received a notification yet...? o_O I haven't heard anything, no rejection, no interview. It's kind of torturing......
