Choices, Decisions. Oh, how the tables have actually turned! For months and months students have been waiting patiently to hear back from USC making use of their admission decision. Those decisions have been made and now we are waiting anxiously to know whether or perhaps not you are going to come to USC. We know that every single one of our admitted students is really a great fit. We also know that you will have many great options and that you have a very tough choice to create in just under 30 days. You want to make that decision a little easier so we have programs throughout the month of April that will show why USC is the fit that is right.

Your admit packet includes a pamphlet with all of the options. I very encourage you to attend at least one of the programs we provide before creating a decision that is final. Even if you’ve been to campus several times or you’ve attended an autumn off-campus reception, the admitted student programs will let you see the University through a much different perspective- now you are an admitted student! By now you probably have many questions about USC. Why can I choose USC? Exactly what will the class that is incoming like? Social life? Academic resources? Housing options? Educational funding? The admitted student programs are designed to give responses to these questions and lots of more. Parts of some of our programs are specifically designed for you personally to find out more about your admission to the spring term or to introduce one to the diverse communities on campus. We do want that will help you make the best decision.

We into the Office of Admission have become excited to meet you after spending months and months getting to know you through your application, so once you do come visit us either at our on-campus programs or off-campus receptions, make sure to introduce yourself. This week I’ll be heading down to South Florida to operate on my tan, eat some food that is cuban and take some great pictures. But most importantly, I am looking forward to seeing every one of my students at the Miami system on Wednesday night!

When again congratulations on your admission so we desire to see you soon!

Picking the college that is right YOU

It’s the middle of April, this means school that is high throughout the nation have less than 2 weeks to produce a huge decision: which college to go to for the following four years. I keep in mind quite vividly how I felt during the month of April when I was a school that is high, excitement, pressure, fear of the unknown, and anticipation and hope for the near future. I spent weeks agonizing over different options and comparing colleges that, in hindsight, are like comparing apples and oranges. Also so, I discovered a great deal from the experience while having discovered that there are different factors students take into account when causeing the life-changing decision.

  • Gut Feeling By now, you’ve likely visited a college campus or many. If not, now would be the time to have a virtual tour, read up on the college, and perhaps talk to present students. Sometimes it precipitates to a feeling that really tips the scales and helps student decide which college campus they intend to call ‘home’ for the better part of 4 years. It are because you felt comfortable at the institution or felt like you recognized items of yourself in other students. Or possibly you can’t maybe explain it&mdash you saw something occur during a college visit that just clicked for you. In any case may be, a gut feeling can go a way that is long.
  • Benefits and Cons Quite the opposite of the gut feeling approach, making a pros and cons list or making a chart that compares and contrasts colleges in numerous areas employs an even more formulaic approach. This is often helpful in organizing what you are looking for in an university and what is actually of value for you. Are you searching for opportunities to increase major or pursue a minor? Do you thrive in a classroom that is large or prefer more intimate, discussion-based classes? Would you like to be near a town or in a college town that is small? This method can often help you sort your ideas and assessments.
  • Rankings, Reputation and Stereotypes We’re all familiar with common stereotypes related to different schools, nonetheless, these stereotypes frequently miss the mark—by a long shot. I hear students who say they want to attend a ‘prestigious university’ nevertheless they are unable to define just what makes an institution ‘prestigious’ or how this is certainly going to affect their college experience. Similarly, students will disregard a potential college due to a bad reputation and rumor they believe to be true. It is vital to know your source and find the truth out about any schools you are considering. Just because a college is ranked as a ‘top college’ somewhere does not mean that it is the right college or best fit for everyone. Which includes you.

There are lots of other facets, practices, and techniques to evaluate what college provides you utilizing the experience that is ideal. In the final end, it’s probably best to pick the school you identify with for some reason.
