It wasn't very difficult to get inOct 07 2014Finance
It wasn't very difficult to get in. Definitely apply early and if you are even considering international business, mark that on your application because it will be a life saver, especially if you think you will be in Capstone ore honors. I would say have a GPA over 3.0 and ACT scores over 24 and you should be in. I had a 3.6 and 28 ACT and was given a 20,000 dollar scholarship
ACT: 29 Male
SAT/ACT scores matter the most - so if you'reJul 22 2014Accounting
SAT/ACT scores matter the most - so if you're on the border with those, write the optional essay and apply early action. Extracurricular activities and awards don't really matter when it comes to admissions.
ACT: 28 Female
As long as you're not in a vegetative state,Jan 20 2014Political Science
As long as you're not in a vegetative state, you'll be okay. I knew people in high school with GPAs around 1.5 and 1.8 who got in.
ACT: 31 SAT: 1200 Male
I am a student/athlete so that was my roadOct 13 2012Business - Management and Administration
I am a student/athlete so that was my road in but I was very involved in clubes in high school which is important to them. Great grades and moderate ACT scores are also a must for USC.
ACT: 25 Male
I did almost nothing to get inAug 01 2011Unknown
I did almost nothing to get in. There were no essays or portfolios required (granted, I was a transfer student). They seen to base admission completely on applicants' transcripts.
