    Being a prospective student myself, if you're a greenery nature person.. the greenery is a bit limited but it's still very nice! However their programs and student body are always so kind and welcoming. The campus does give that laid back feeling, where one gets a sense of belonging.

    Make sure that you're prepared to work really hard. USC isn't a renown school for no reason. Its programs are very demanding.

    1. Do not be intimidated by test scores, grades, or service/involvement hours. If you are amazing, just let it show through your whole application because they do review it all. 2. Also, don't let the price scare you. There is a lot of help through grants and scholarships if you just look. 3. Keep your grades up and try to take higher level/AP classes to get you prepared. 4. Get in touch with the school if you have any questions because they are actually helpful and will work with you.
