  • To the poster below (May 3rd), I applied before the deadline in mid-January 2014. In early April, I called to ask for updates and the admission office told me that my GRE score was not reported to USC (why nobody told me that earlier remains a mystery). I submitted my GRE score and waited for a few weeks then came the letter of rejection. USC was my last hope for any US admission (I didn't apply alot due to costs). The only admit I have now is from Australia :-|

  • To the PhD Applicant status below. USC takes a very different approach to PhD and is really selective for PhD admits. The reason for this is USC is very stingy with funds and takes very few PhD admits. So ya chances are lesser than masters admits. Although i personally dont know anyone who got a PhD in USC CS this late, USC is a school which gives rolling admits and yes you still have a shot at it.

  • To the status below, I kill myself every night that i did not apply to twin cities. It is excellent for data mining/data sciences(which is also my preferred subfield). Overall USC is better though. If money is a real problem, go for twin cities without thinking. USC is really famous for its alumni network and career fairs. It does not give any TA/RA and is super expensive. Minessota might have a problem with location but for CS you can easily move about and school is not that big a deal. Btw congrats of twin cities, Fantastic admit.

  • The admissions committee gave me a call and asked if I was set on the 2-year program..I stated that my preference was the 2 year but if the 3-year program was the only way I would get in I would take it. I will accept if this is the only school I get in. I applied on Nov. 15th. Good luck to all the other applicants. Go Trojans?
