Hi, my name is prospective student…

Hi, my name is prospective student…

I’ve resided in Los Angeles my life that is entire and I do not ever recall meeting anybody famous, despite having Hollywood in my yard. Nevertheless, as a result of USC, I feel like I’ve become somewhat of a celebrity among America’s teenagers (well, not to the known level of Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber) because thousands of students want to fulfill me every fall. In so far as I’d like to think it’s me personally, senior high school seniors want to make yes I realize their strong desire for USC. The effort is made by them to meet me at high college visits, at off-campus receptions, and during their campus visits. The target: to make sure I can put a real face up to a title for an application. I don’t blame them. USC can be an place that is extraordinary students can arrived at achieve their academic goals and prepare themselves because of their future careers. But while I truly make the effort to remember as many students as possible, I’m not getting any younger and my memory just isn’t the same as you can imagine, I meet thousands of students during the fall semester and.

My blog series ‘Do This, Not That’ is inspired by a book provided to me personally by my mom: Eat This, Not That (she thinks I need to drop a few lbs but that’s not going to happen. Los Angeles’ diverse cultures has me trying foods that are different time!) Having said that, we’m here to supply you with some advice on how to contact your admission counselor and make sure it’s a meaningful experience for both parties. Every morning i’m greeted with over 40 emails and instantly tell myself: ‘this is likely to be a long day.’ But through them, I realize these emails are from prospective students who want to ‘introduce’ themselves to me as I filter. Works out, only four emails have actually questions that I have to answer. Three of them have quick easy responses (I’m glad we have such a website that is thorough i usually refer to it when I do not remember something). The very last one, this one is special. A student asks me a question i don’t know the answer to and I can’t find the answer on the website. I’ll simply take this challenge! My duty as admission therapist is to make certain my students are well informed applicants. I understand this process is confusing and hard to navigate but I will do my best to clarify things for you. I shall do my homework and answer your question. I actually don’t have all the answers so when a learning student asks me one thing I actually don’t know, they are sharpening my skills. I appreciate this kind of interaction with students because this lets me know they want to make sure USC is a good fit for them that they are taking this admission process very seriously and. So I challenge you to definitely challenge your admission counselor and inquire further questions to save you time. We are ready!

5 Things to Increase Check Always Before Striking Submit.

1. You have got done all fields that are necessary the application

This could appear like typical sense, however with therefore many response fields to complete, it’s really simple to unintentionally skip or neglect a question. Be yes to respond to all or any applicable questions making sure that you submit a complete application.

2. No errors or typos

We realize that senior year is really a busy time, but absolutely leave time and energy to proofread your application. Have a close friend or family member do the exact same for you. A credit card applicatoin that is riddled with errors demonstrates you do not understand how to write and/or don’t care enough to check your work, both of that are harmful.

3. You actually explain why you need to attend USC, be specific

Most colleges will ask question similar to ‘Why would you like to attend our institution?’ Rather than being generic and stating you want an university with school spirit, in a city that is large where you are able to study biology, research your facts and mention specific programs, research opportunities, or classes that interest you.

4. Academic summary and self-reported test that is supplemental

Despite the fact that your academic history and self-reported test scores look as optional items, it is in your benefit to accomplish them regarding the typical application. Often test scores or transcripts will get lost into the mail, so it can help if you self-report the information as well. This way we can continue to gauge your file for the time being while waiting for the documents that are official arrive.

5. That you actually hit the submit button…for both typical app and supplement

Every there are students who surprisingly forget to actually hit the submit button year. Also often, students hit submit for the common software, but forget to submit the USC Supplement. It might be the part that is easiest associated with the application, but make sure you bear in mind that last step.

*Deadlines are very important so please be aware that you need to submit by December 1st to be looked at for merit scholarship. With that being said, we realize some things are from your control such as letters of recommendation and transcripts that are official. That is another explanation it is critical to complete your educational summary, once we wait for official documents to arrive as we can evaluate that in the meantime. Strive to have all documents in by December 1st, but we realize if some of these supplemental documents come in only a little following the deadline.
