Oh, how the tables have turned! For months and months students have been waiting patiently to hear back from USC with their admission decision. Those decisions have been made and now we are waiting anxiously to hear whether or not you are going to come to USC. We know that each and every one of our admitted students is a great fit. We also know that you will have many great options and that you have a really tough decision to make in just under a month. We want to help make that decision a little easier so we have programs throughout the month of April that are designed to show why USC is the right fit.
Your admit packet includes a brochure with all of your options. I highly encourage you to attend at least one of the programs we offer before making a final decision. Even if you’ve been to campus several times or you’ve attended a fall off-campus reception, the admitted student programs will enable you to see the University through a much different perspective- now you’re an admitted student! By now you probably have many questions about USC. Why should I choose USC? What will the incoming class look like? Social life? Academic resources? Housing options? Financial aid? The admitted student programs are designed to give answers to these questions and many more. Parts of some of our programs are specifically designed for you to learn more about your admission to the spring term or to introduce you to the diverse communities on campus. We really do want to help you make the best decision.
We in the Office of Admission are very excited to meet you after spending months and months getting to know you through your application, so when you do come visit us either at our on-campus programs or off-campus receptions, be sure to introduce yourself. This week I’ll be heading down to South Florida to work on my tan, eat some Cuban food, and take some great photos. But most importantly, I am looking forward to seeing all of my students at the Miami program on Wednesday night!
Once again congratulations on your admission and we hope to see you soon!
