i heard from usc today but i already pushed my ut decision deadline to the end of april..meaning i have roughly 2 weeks to decide between the two. i know this is a usc thread but any input would be greatly appreciated. im leaning a lot towards usc because of the generous scholarship but some people say texas is a better program. thanks!

SilverTT94: the only thing i got from USC in the mail was a graduate study packet. there's a CIR form in there, which is to let USC know you'll be attending. i also got a CIR for leventhal in my acceptance email. other than that, i haven't received any news about an email address or anything else...shirley gave me the summer schedule during my interview and it seems intense... for housing, i applied for the USC owned apts off campus. i called housing and they said i'll only be able to get it for the summer since housing has already been reserved for the school year.

krnxcookie: i was in the same position as you. i was also accepted into ut austin but wasn't offered any financial aid and the cost of attending would have been comparable to USC. plus i would have to relocate, which i don't really want to do. i'm sure austin is a great program and i've heard nothing but good things about the city/school. however, i think the MPA program is much larger. there are the traditional MPA admits like us, plus from what i saw on the website, 250+ students from their undergrad program were also admitted into the MPA program last year. i took that into consideration when choosing USC over austin. i received a half tuition scholarship from USC for the fall and spring semester so i couldn't turn that down. btw, it seems like if you were accepted to another school, USC starts throwing money at you lol...i'm not complaining

MAcc2009, im in the same situation as you. Since i was accepted i haven;t received any infor beside the graduate student pack. I emailed cathy about the summer housing and she said she would give me the information sometime this week. Did you guys just go ahead and sign up for summer housing?

hey good news, i asked for an extension for the CIR, since i was deciding between CSUF and USC. and i received an email stating they would give me a small partial scholarship. :-D it's probably not as generous as everyone elses but it's definitely enough to help me out. i'm willing to take any free money, even if I have to look for pennies on the ground. j/k :lol:

i sure hope to see all of you at orientation and for the 2 months of mon-fri 8am-6pm hell.. oops i mean "summer intensive" . :cry:

is the summer housing for 2 months? is it too late to apply?

For everyone who was asking about USC e-mail accounts-

You have to send in your CIR and pay your enrollment deposit, then the registrar's office sends your info to USC IT dept. and they create a student account for you, which you have to activate.
To activate go to: http://www.usc.edu/firstlogin
Then you type in your name and birthdate to activate your account.

As for financial aid, you have to create a separate account on the USC financial aid website and then fill out the FAFSA and a supplemental USC financial aid form by May 5. If you were given a scholarship I'm pretty sure you would receive it in your acceptance letter or info.

Has anyone received any news on housing? I applied but I'm guessing this late in the game it might be too late...Any thoughts?

yes i will most likely go although i have yet to submit my CIR, which will be done very soon.i think there is still summer housing available, although unsure on fall/spring housing. this is was i got from shirley when i asked her.

"For the summer program, I would apply for the campus housing. We send you the details once you are confirmed to attend. It’s available and extremely convenient considering you are in class 5 days a week from 8:00 to 5:30 pm. You can purchase parking and spots are available. Parking passes go on sale May 15th."

I found out that I am on the waitlist for USC. I'm completely bummed and not sure what I should do. They are supposed to let me know by mid May, so the classes I am taking right now won't be complete by then. And it's a bit short notice to ask for another recommendation letter. Any suggestions?

sorry to hear that squiggly. :(
hmm it's probably short notice, but maybe you can ask where you needed improvement? how the waitlist process is? and how u can better your chances at getting in? what happened to the MBT process? are you contemplating about applying next year? or are you going to try else where?

Thanks for the reply, ask80. Well, I asked her about the waitlist process and if I could do anything to strengthen my candidacy. She said I can't really do anything unless I have grades for the classes I'm taking now. I pretty much just have to wait. I'm not really sure what my plans are if I don't get in. I'm looking into applying to Fullerton, but I'm still hoping that I get into USC since that's my first choice.

i'm not sure when the cut off date is, but send in your grades as soon as you finish, which i'm assuming is mid-may? maybe ask your teacher to write a letter of rec? good luck and hope to see you in summer or fall.

^ nope. if i remember right someone is supposed to contact us about classes, i forget her name.

my opinion of usc has gone down these past few weeks. in my opinion there isn't enough communication between USC and the student. i still have zero info about financial aid and how much i will need to borrow, usc messed up with my parking permit and had to send me a replacement, my usc email is not registering, i know nothing about payment and usc billing, etc etc.

i sound like a whiner. but of course, overall i am grateful for usc. 8-)

i'll continue to FIGHT ON.... in the dark... lol

They also messed up on my parking permit - and I still don't have a clue about when they are going to send me a bill for summer intensive. I agree that the communcation between USC and students needs to improve. I hope It gets better by fall semester.

^ you're talking about the macc site right? i had a formal pic for a day but my friend ian wanted me to do something controversial like taking a picture with a bruin reference in the background... i said no way. so i just went with a non formal pic instead, screw formality haha.

so i can tell that jlister is james lister on the site, but don't know anyone else. put a face to a screen name, reveal yourselves!

I just checked my status on the website and found out that I got in! Yay for me! However, I didn't get an acceptance email. Did everyone get an email? Also, my CIR doesn't state a deadline, and I didn't receive any scholarship info (I don't think I got any anyway). Should I email them and ask if I got any scholarships, or is that too blunt? And also ask them if I have a deadline for the CIR?
