I'm definitely applying to USC and I'm visiting if I get in - I've seen it from a distace. I live in NorCal as well so leaving home is hard but I'm in love with the idea of USC. So how would a person "work the system"? Also, the area around it seems a bit sketchy even though I was raised in an area similar to it.. What are your thoughts on the surrounding area. And thank you, by the way! You're a huge help.

This one’s for all the folks wondering about USC and all the people thinking about going to college!

It’s a great school but sometimes the administration is a lil’ iffy. Here are some cheat codes to get passed the BS they might throw at ya. 

Ready…ok Up, down, left, left, triangle, square x4, left, down, down, start. That should unlock all characters/ courses and scholarships instantly. 

JK.

( quick disclaimer: These tips aren’t a 100% chance but if used effectively they can get you were you wanna be. I’m pulling from stories from fellow Trojans, Admissions office staff and some volunteer stuff i do on campus.) 

1) Admission Hacks:

Myth #1: A rejection letter is final.

This Spring, I got the opportunity to work on a spot to help promote Immigrant Heritage Month! It was a mega struggle but I’m happy with how it turned out! Learned a lot! I worked Primarily with my friends JT and Arturo.

We met with all the people in charge and they gave us creative freedom! So we kind of just dove in. The main purpose of the video was to get people to share their stories! So, we decided to make a storybook that shows how people came to America over time!

To emphasize the diversity of our nation we got a bunch of different people to read the voice over and hand different color hands turn the pages of the book and had a super diverse family reading the book together at then end! 

I guess you could say I was the director on this….Me, Jt and Arturo kinda divided up the work to produce this. I did all of the Art Direction, for sure.( the pics I posted are a mix of stills and concept stuff) JT animated and Arturo did sound. We had another team member that came up with the initial idea and talked with the client for us.

We had a great experience working on it, some of the technical stuff slowed us down but we got through it! This was our first Flydra Animation production and it informed how we work on our projects today. We had a great experience working on it, some of the technical stuff slowed us down but we got through it! 

I gotta track down the final version to show off!

Hello! So I saw that you go to USC, and I'm going to be applying there in the fall along with other schools... SO MY QUESTION IS what do you think of USC and it's academics and what's it social life like?
jabrilmacktionhero jabrilmacktionhero Said:

USC is pretty great! I for one have really enjoyed my time here! 

Pros:

+Academically, USC offers so much that’s it’s almost overwhelming! Anything you want to learn, you can. Professors are really helpful and knowledgeable. They tend to encourage “inter-divisional” ( is that a word?) mingling…As an animation major, I can take classes outside of the cinema school and most professors would hold it against you if you aren’t studying their area of expertise.  

Everyone is really driven here! It’s really inspiring!

+ It’s also super diverse. You will meet people from all walks of life/backgrounds/ nationalities/interest.

+ Socially, USC is what you make it…I would say we are a party school but you don’t have to get into that stuff if you don’t want to. Because it’s so diverse you will be able to find people with similar interests as you. People are always hanging out and for the most part are pretty nice.

+There are a TON of clubs so you gotta see what’s out there.

THE BIGGEST PRO OF ALL IS THE TORJAN FAMILY.

I LOVE the Trojan family Mafia. The Alumni network is amazing! Trojans help trojans that’s for sure. I could go on and on about stories of how simply being a Trojan has landed me INSANE job opportunities that most folks would never get!

+Football/Sports

+LA WEATHER

CONS:

- Pretty Pricey!

- It’s not for everyone.

- It’s hard to get in ( although there are ways to boost those chances/ work the system…will talk about those if asked.)

I totally recommending applying, visiting the campus, and seeing if it’s a right match for you. 

I love USC and can’t wait to start my senior year!
