Do well on your SAT. USC loves it when you do well on your SAT because it's an easily quantifiable measure of student achievement. USC is trying to improve its ranking, so facile measures of intellect such as the SAT (btw, facile is probably an SAT reading comprehension word, so if you don't know what it means get cracking on the studying) are a quantifiable way of showing the caliber of student the school is drawing.

I would recommend finding a different university. If honor's students are saying this, then you know there's a problem.

It's a business. So the more applicants you get, the happier each department will be because it's up to them if they have enough space (usually they do) to admit students and this helps the school make more tuition money.

To get in, I got a 700 or over in each category, did 8 AP's and 8 honors classes in high school with a 3.8 unweighted and 4.3 weighted gpa. I did a lot of community service which continues to be my passion.
SAT: 2160 Male
