Admission Interviews for Fall 2012 Applicants – On Campus Appointments Available Now

By July 4, 2011No Comments

We can't wait to meet you!

If you are planning on applying to USC as an engineering major in the Viterbi School of Engineering – you may want to jump on over to our admission interview page.  We just posted interview appointments starting on August 1 through September practically every weekday.

Interviews are entirely optional, however they give us another opportunity to learn more about you.  Insights into your interests, personality and motivation assist us in making fair admission decisions.

Interviews are available to current high school students planning to apply to USC as a freshman for Fall 2012. We do not conduct interviews for students not yet applying or transfer students. Applicants for Fall 2012 can interview at anytime through our interview season and do not need to have an application on file in order to interview. The interview season runs from August 1 – December 9, 2011.  Appointments for October through December, as well as our off-campus locations will be posted in September.

If you are thinking about applying and interviewing, we recommend doing so earlier rather than later as the later dates fill rather quickly.  Interview appointments are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
