  • To the USC poster Below, Bro, I'm in the same boat... and I'm sure a lot of us are still waiting. I called them a couple of days ago and they informed me that we will be notified in May... but they didn't address my query at all... They didn't even let me inform them about which degree I was applying for, As soon as I mentioned that the call was regarding admissions they just said May. I asked if they could give a less vague answer but they said that they can't. I just spoke to a friend of mine who got an admit from the Electrical Department for Spring'17 and she informed me that the email says that the candidate should accept the offer by May 2nd. So, I'm guessing they'll get back to us only after that. May the odds be ever so in our favor. Good luck!

  • Congratulations to all the lucky people who got into USC. I just wanted to know if any of you guys got into the software engineering track. I just called the school up today and they said that I'd hear back from them in May. I asked for a date and they said that they can't really say by when.... So, I know that the odds are probably not in my favor but if there is a slight chance that I might get in then It'll be freaking AWESOME! So, if any of you guys got in for Software Engineering then please do let me know! Thanks a ton guys and once again Congratulations to all of you!

I was told that not all acceptances were sent out yet but they "would try" to get them in by the 15th. Still no word. Definitely bummed by USC's lateness. Would expect a school whose apart of the Council of Graduate Schools to send ALL decisions by the 15th!

They review your application thorughly before making an admissions decision.

  • To the USC poster, according to a friend of mine doing his PhD there, they have given out almost all MS admits and are giving admits now after admitted applicants are rejecting their offers, they have got very very few rejections and that those who haven't heard from them should expect rejections only. USC got too many applications this year and based on their GPA only policy of admitting MS students , the threshold shot up this year.
