Senior Slump? Snap Out from It! We understand you have worked very hard on the last few years

Senior Slump? Snap Out from It! We understand you have worked very hard on the last few years using all of those challenging courses, getting involved with numerous extracurriculars, accepting leadership positions, etc. And, you’re undoubtedly working very hard now on your university applications. You may possibly feel very tempted to put off your college work in support of other, more exciting opportunities (senior ditch day, anybody?) But trust us, now’s perhaps not the right time to slack off. You attended this far, and you want to make sure you finish strong. And not simply on your own comfort of mind, though we do hope you have your own internal motivations. Realistically, though, exactly what will probably motivate you most to keep those year that is senior up is a little one thing called the Mid-Year Report.

The Mid-Year Report is a very Common Application form that must be submitted by your therapist after your first semester senior year grades become available. Our office takes these grades into consideration, and expects that the trend in your grades will carry on. That means that if you had been earning high grades prior to, there isn’t any explanation those As shouldn’t be reflected on your Mid-Year Report.

And although we’re regarding the topic, senioritis isn’t an excuse to let your second-semester senior year grades slip, either. We’ll be sent a transcript that is final your high college, and certainly will ensure that those grades are intact, too. As always, we reserve the directly to rescind any admission decisions.

So, moral of the story is: continue working hard, up until ab muscles day that is last of year. And, prepare to work even harder (but have a lot of enjoyment too) in university!

The Art of the Health Supplement

Our deadline that is first is around the corner. Are you able to believe it?! December 1st is less than a month away. Students using for talent-based majors must submit a little more information, therefore we have clarified a few reasons for the process.

Along with doing the App that is common and Writing Supplement, pupils signing up to the Iovine and Young Academy, Roski School of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, School of Cinematic Arts, School of Dramatic Arts, while the Thornton School of Music must finish the Arts Supplement.

In order to do that, students need to respond ‘yes’ to the question, ‘Do you intend to submit an art supplement which means that your special skill in one or higher for the arts is going to be considered as part of the admission process to University of Southern California?’ on the supplement that is writing. This allows the web link to Slideroom to appear in the left column of Common App.


Thornton: pupils should be prescreened before being invited for an audition. To do this, pupils must upload tracks to the ‘Fall DecisionDesk portal’ by the December 1st deadline. They must also complete the Art Supplement in Slideroom. Thornton will send students an audition confirmation in late December. Please only submit a Slideroom health supplement for a major to which you are applying.

Dramatic Arts: To schedule an audition for the BFA, students must suggest their top three audition date preferences on Slideroom. If students are unable to wait a live audition, they must select ‘Recorded Audition’ on Audition Date Preference #1 and upload a recording on the ‘Media’ tab in Slideroom.


Dramatic Arts: All applicants applying to the BA in Dramatic Arts system are asked to schedule an interview with an admission therapist either in person or on the telephone. Students can sign up for this meeting on the Dramatic Arts internet site.

Portfolio submission:

Fine Arts: In addition to questions that are answering the student’s creative experience, pupils must submit 10-15 images on the Media tab on Slideroom. They are added one at time and can’t be added in PDF format.

Iovine and Young Academy: Applicants are required to submit an original video of only one minute that illustrates an original idea for an innovative item, service or system that solves an issue, addresses a need, or provides an opportunity. In addition to this video, students may submit up to 5 media files including artistic images, motion graphics, original music recordings, poems, and essays. Every one of these elements should be uploaded to the Media tab within Slideroom.

Architecture: Students can upload drawing, sketching, painting, graphic design, photography, video, web-design, sculpture, ceramics and furniture design project examples to the Media tab on Slideroom. The admission committee would like to see evidence of imagination. Up to 25 examples may be submitted.

Cinematic Arts: Depending on this system to that the student applies, students must submit a statement that is personal composing sample, creative profile list, responses to brief response questions, and URLs in Slideroom. The Media tab is where students should upload visual test, video, and photos.
