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, dealing with leadership positions, etc. And, you are truly working very difficult now on your college applications. You may possibly feel very tempted to put down your school work in favor of other, more exciting opportunities (senior ditch time, anybody?) But trust us, now’s maybe not the right time to slack off. You have come this far, and you want to ensure that you complete strong. And not simply for your own peace of mind, though we do hope you have got your very own internal motivations. Realistically, though, what’s going to probably motivate you most to keep those year that is senior up is a little something called the Mid-Year Report.

The Mid-Year Report is a Common application that must be submitted by your counselor after very first semester senior year grades become available. Our workplace takes these grades into consideration, and expects that the trend in your grades will continue. That means that when you were earning grades that are high, there’s absolutely no reason those As shouldn’t be reflected on your Mid-Year Report.

And while we’re on the topic, senioritis just isn’t an excuse to allow your second-semester senior year grades slip, either. We are going to be sent a transcript that is final your high school, and can be 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 ab muscles day that is last of year. And, prepare to the office even harder (but have actually a lot of enjoyment too) in college!

The Art of the Supplement

Our deadline that is first is around the corner. Is it possible 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’ve clarified a few things about the process.

Along with finishing the App that is common and Writing Supplement, students applying to the Iovine and Young Academy, Roski School of Fine Arts, class of Architecture, School of Cinematic Arts, School of Dramatic Arts, therefore the Thornton School of Music must complete the Arts Supplement.

In order to do that, students require to react ‚yes‘ to the question, ‚Do you intend to submit an art supplement which means your special skill in one or higher of this arts will be considered as part of the admission process to University of Southern California?‘ on the supplement that is writing. This will allow for the hyper link to Slideroom to appear within the left column of Common App.


Thornton: Students must be prescreened before being invited for the audition. To get this done, 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 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 aren’t able 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 program are expected to schedule an interview with an admission counselor either in person or on the device. Pupils can sign up for this meeting on the Dramatic Arts site.

Portfolio submission:

Fine Arts: In addition to answering concerns about the student’s creative experience, students must submit 10-15 images on the Media tab on Slideroom. They’ve been added one at time and cannot be added in PDF format.

Iovine and Young Academy: Applicants are required to submit an initial video of only about a minute that illustrates an original concept for an innovative item, service or system that solves a problem, addresses a need, or provides a chance. In addition for this video, students may submit up to 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: pupils can upload drawing, sketching, painting, graphic design, photography, video clip, web-design, sculpture, ceramics and furniture design project examples to the Media tab on Slideroom. The admission committee would like to see proof of creativity. Up to 25 examples may be submitted.

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