    Make sure in the supplement of your essay that you write exactly why you want to attend USC. Colleges like it when they know you actually want to go to their school for some specific reasons, because it means they're doing something right. So make sure to include that, and if you're looking for a scholarship from the university, then make sure to apply by the December 1st deadline.

    Make your stay at USC worthwhile. Connect with other students, join the Greek life or an on-campus organization, and develop mature relationships with professors so you can do well academically. You are a part of the Trojan family so make the best of your college experience at USC.
