The Mid-Year Report is a Common form that must be submitted by your counselor after your first semester year that is senior become available. Our office takes these grades under consideration, and expects that the trend in your grades will continue. That means that if you’re earning high grades before, 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 will be sent a final transcript from your high college, and certainly will ensure that those grades are intact, too. As always, we reserve the straight to rescind any admission decisions.
So, moral of the tale is: continue working hard, up until the very day that is last of year. And, prepare to operate even harder (but have a lot of fun too) in college!
The Art of the Supplement
Our deadline that is first is around the corner. Are you able to believe it?! December 1st is less compared to a month away. Pupils using for talent-based majors must submit a little more information, therefore we have clarified a few things about the procedure.
Along with completing the Common App and USC Writing Supplement, students deciding on the Iovine and Young Academy, Roski class of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, School of Cinematic Arts, School of Dramatic Arts, while the Thornton School of musical must complete the Arts Supplement.
To do that, students need to respond ‘yes’ to the question, ‘Do you intend to submit an art supplement which means your special talent in one or higher of this arts will be regarded as element of the admission process to University of Southern California?’ on the Writing health supplement. This allows the web link to Slideroom to appear in the left column of Common App.
Thornton: pupils needs to be prescreened before being invited for the audition. To do this, students must upload recordings to the ‘Fall DecisionDesk portal’ by the December 1st deadline. They must also complete the creative Art Supplement in Slideroom. Thornton will be sending 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 not able to go to 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 program are asked to schedule an interview with an admission therapist either in person or on the telephone. Pupils can subscribe to this meeting on the Dramatic Arts web site.
Fine Arts: In addition to questions that are answering the student’s innovative experience, pupils must submit 10-15 images on the Media tab on Slideroom. These are typically 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 no more than 1 minute that illustrates an original concept for an innovative product, service or system that solves an issue, addresses a need, or provides an opportunity. In addition for this video, pupils may submit as much as 5 media files including artistic 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, movie, 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 the program to that your student applies, students must submit a statement that is personal writing test, creative profile list, reactions to short answer questions, and URLs in Slideroom. The Media tab is where students should upload visual test, video clip, and photos.
