Senior Slump? Snap Out from It! We all know you have worked very hard over the last few years

 using most of those challenging courses, getting involved in numerous extracurriculars, taking on leadership positions, etc. And, you are certainly working very difficult now on your university applications. You may feel very tempted to put your school work off in support of other, more exciting possibilities (senior ditch time, anybody?) But trust us, now is not the time to slack off. You came this far, and you want to ensure that you complete strong. And not simply on your own peace of mind, you have your own internal motivations though we do hope. Realistically, though, what’s going to probably motivate you most to keep those senior year grades up is just a little one thing called the Mid-Year Report.

The Mid-Year Report is a Common form that must be submitted by your therapist after very first semester year that is senior become available. Our workplace takes these grades into account, and expects that the trend in your grades will carry on. That means that if you’re earning grades that are high, there is no explanation those As shouldn’t be reflected on your Mid-Year Report.

And although we’re in the topic, senioritis is not an excuse to allow your second-semester year that is senior slip, either. We’ll be delivered a transcript that is final your high school, and will make sure that those grades are intact, too. As always, we reserve the right to rescind any admission decisions.

So, moral of the tale is: continue working hard, up until the very last day’s senior year. And, prepare to function even harder (but have a lot of enjoyment too) in university!

The Art of the Supplement

Our first due date is just around the corner. Are you able to believe it?! December 1st is less compared to a month away. Students applying for talent-based majors must submit a bit more information, therefore we have clarified a few reasons for the process.

As well as finishing the Common App and USC Writing Supplement, students signing up to the Iovine and Young Academy, Roski class of Fine Arts, class of Architecture, School of Cinematic Arts, School of Dramatic Arts, plus the Thornton School of musical must complete the Arts Supplement.

In order to do that, students need to respond ‘yes’ to the question, ‘Do you intend to submit an art supplement so that your special talent in one or even more of this arts will likely be considered as element of the admission process to University of Southern California?’ on the supplement that is writing. This allows the hyper link to Slideroom to appear within the left column of typical App.


Thornton: pupils must certanly be prescreened before being invited for an audition. To achieve this, pupils must upload recordings 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 indicate their top three audition date preferences on Slideroom. If pupils aren’t able to go to an audition that is live 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 phone. Students can subscribe to this interview on the Dramatic Arts web site.

Portfolio submission:

Fine Arts: In addition to questions that are answering the student’s imaginative experience, students must submit 10-15 images on the Media tab on Slideroom. They’ve been added one at time and may not be added in PDF format.

Iovine and Young Academy: Applicants are required to submit an initial video of only one minute that illustrates an original idea for an innovative item, service or system that solves a problem, addresses a need, or provides the opportunity. In addition to the video, pupils may submit up to 5 media files including visual images, motion graphics, original music recordings, poems, and essays. All of these components 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 proof creativity. Up to 25 examples may be submitted.

Cinematic Arts: Depending on this program to which the student applies, pupils must submit a personal statement, composing sample, creative portfolio list, responses to short answer questions, and URLs in Slideroom. The Media tab is where students should upload artistic sample, movie, and photos.
