This is tough because USC was originally my first choice but now I'm starting to think I'd go somewhere else even if I got in. That just could be the frustration talking.
I've been thinking that too. Even my parents are saying, "If this is how they run their admissions process, is this how they run the whole school?" They could be right, or maybe the admissions committee is just having a rough year. Either way, they should send something out to let people know what is going on and when they hope to make decisions.
Obviously my numbers weren't strong enough to get me accepted in the "first round," but now I am starting to feel like a mere annoyance to them, while other schools are going out of their ways to get me to attend. I don't know if I want to pay USC $100,000 to treat me like I should be honored to sit quietly and put my life on hold for them. Okay, rant over
I bet the nice lady who works in admissions has said, "Your file is with the committee" so many times that it is now etched in her brain for eternity.
