All have actually many excellent options for college and now we can barely wait to discover who can accept our offer and join the Trojan Family.

I’m incredibly proud associated with USC that is entire Enrollment team—for its commitment, work and professionalism. The group of pupils that people have identified for admission is the greatest in USC’s 133-year history!
