I applied R1. No interview invite for me.

A "theory" I heard posted on the b-week forums is they sent out the first batch of invites to candidates who are located internationally or east coast/far away from LA so that these applicants can schedule their interviews appropriately. However, I am starting to worry...

After Christmas break, there's only one month left until the decision deadline. I would assume that if you don't get an invite by one or two weeks in 2010, you're toast. :?

Hey Topher, care to share a bit about your profile? I might be interested in USC.

Ha! I should be asking you. Haven't started yet. Plan on starting this weekend.

I'm interested in Creative Fields too, but other than saying "I think it's cool", I won't be able to tie it in to a career goal.

How did others interpret the "additional document upload" option, after the essay upload? I assume we should upload our essay answers as one PDF in the main essay upload question. Then in the additional uploads, I am putting a scan of my transcript. But what else is appropriate to use these 5 upload slots for?

well, i have this ridiculous dream of opening a full service production company that competes with the james cameron/jj abrams type fixtures in action movies. i've worked on two different films (which i would have loved to go into in the USC and any of my applications but simply have no room too), and have contacts in military that i've flexed when i've needed to. i've got some other "media" oriented stuff under my belt including some high profile stuff... but in reality, someone like me who's an outsider and don't have the cash, hollywood connections, and "real" experience other than "oh that's nice" type stuff, there's no way that this could happen.

Thanks for elaborating; I understand since I need to make some solid industry connections as well. I'm interested in transitioning into the leisure and amusement industry possibly to work on new models for location based venues. I like what I see at USC's Entertainment Technology Center. However, I'm unsure about how Marshall or any other school will help me gain the access I'm looking for. Very few schools have ties with the industry and if ties exists, it's because of a focus on hospitality, not entertainment. Guess I have a lot more research and networking to do... Good luck w/ the process and choosing the right school.

Does anyone know if USC generally releases their decisions in advance of the stated notification dates? Or should I just accept that I won't hear anything until 2/1 (I'm a R1 applicant).

Thanks,

During my interview, adcom told me that 2/1 actually means thats when they start sending out decisions. She said a few decisions may go out before that date but 2/1 is not a release deadline. She also said they won't release a decision until they have your official transcript and score report.

Same here, I dont get the vibe that the adcom team is as "vibrant" as other top tier programs. Just too laid back I think. Any thots??
