What I .

What I . We surveyed our current students to see just what they wish that they had known prior to applying to USC. Here is what they need to state:

Mary Waller (Junior from Chicago, IL): because you got mixed up about an essay topic or a deadline, just remember that you are (probably) not actually insane, and that everyone else is experiencing the same thing as you freak out about small details in your essay, and have regular panic attacks.

Spencer Lepow (Freshman from Houston, TX): we wish I would have known that the goal associated with the admissions officer is get you IN. They are fighting them out by submitting a polished application that really reflects you and your strengths for you, so help.

Simone Geller (Freshman from Foothill Ranch, CA): For the most part, the students signing up to a prestigious school like USC are all going become smart with good grades and high test scores. What is imperative to get across in the application through your essays is a clear picture of who you truly are.

Q: Why did you choose to take the SAT?

S: I was curious. We make use of it and have so numerous conversations it felt irresponsible to not actually know what it was like around it that.

E: I guess we decided to take the test for a reasons that are few. I do believe both of us thought it could be fun. (We was wrong). And it was thought by us would help us relate a little towards the applicants and recognize that it was just taking care of with this process.

Q: Now that you have finished your undergraduate and graduate work, did you find it easier or higher difficult this time?

S: It absolutely was surely harder, I do believe because I do not sit right down in a classroom analyzing literature or doing math these days, so my brain just is not trained for that kind of material anymore.
