Today is the Day!

For many of you, this journey of applying to USC and the Viterbi School of Engineering has been going on for years.  We see students as young as 8th graders join us at our Meet USC program, and we are so appreciative of your interest and excitement for our programs.  At the very least, you applied months ago and have been waiting to hear the results.

The waiting is just about over as the University is releasing all admission decisions for the over 64,000 applications for the fall 2018 term.  Of those, over 13,000 applications were for the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.  Each of these numbers are the largest in the history of our institution.  Check out my post from earlier this week about our admission review process.

For today, know that letters and packages will be loaded on trucks and sent via postal mail to your addresses.  Listen to our podcast episode we recorded today to discuss our decisions (Fall, Spring, etc), what to do now that you’ve received your decision (read everything, visit campus, etc), and so much more….
