About this livestream

School information

University of Southern California | USC

Los Angeles, CA

One of the most famous schools in LA, the University of Southern California is known for its prestigious academics, top-tier athletics, and vibrant student culture.

With a slim acceptance rate, this school is highly selective - but don’t worry - Yesh is here to walk you through the ins and outs of the USC application.

He’ll cover academics and testing, extracurriculars, the USC supplemental questions, and more. If you’re set on being a Trojan or still deciding between USC and UCLA after last week’s stream, don’t miss this installment of our How to get into Livestream series. As always, we’ll open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any and all questions about USC, so come ready with questions for Yesh!

2:48@ernestromero8:jersey represent!
21:56@ernestromero8:My SAT is a 1350, but I have a 4.0 GPA. Would it still be considered a risk to omit my SAT or should I send it in anyway?
41:38@jasminek:are we supposed to provide a brief explanation in the short answer responses?
54:09@collegeapp:For reporting AP scores, if you have some 3s, what would you advise?
55:18@ernestromero8:As someone who is both white and native american, would I be less considered than someone who is solely native american?
56:15@Liza:Do we send AP scores by due date or only self report it?
58:27@ernestromero8:How does USC's interview process work? I know certain schools want you to request them and others ask for them but I am unsure of USC's process.
