USC Fall Grades Request
I applied to USC and have received an email from them requesting my 2018 Fall grades.
And in the email they said "identified you as a promising applicant" but more information is needed before a decision could be made.
I was really excited to see this as USC is one of my top choices but was wondering how many people who applied to USC got this email.
Does "promising" really mean something here?
It would be really great if anyone who had applied to USC before or anyone who is familiar with the admissions process at USC could help out!
Ah, okay. If it helps your data collection at all, I applied to USC but did not receive that email. What math/econ courses did you take in the Fall?
Thank you for your input again, EXP.
For your question, I took 1 research course in Econ, 2 300-level Econ electives, and Algorithms (300-level comp sci) course.
I did not take any formal math classes last semester.
The only information you can elicit from that email is that you were not desk rejected, which is a great sign.
Yeah I am happy that I wan't desk rejected too.
Do you have any idea or stats on the percentage of applicants who get desk rejected?
I remember reading on UNC-Chapel Hill's website that if they only considered applicants who had GRE quant score over 166(not 100% sure but it was somewhere around it) the number of applicants would have almost halved.
Although, they were not saying that those applicants with below that score were desk rejected.
