Are USC’s scandals finally catching up with admissions?
USC announced today it had nearly 60,000 applicants for the Class of 2024 and accepted 9,535 students. USC said the acceptance rate was 16 percent.
This breaks a recent trend for USC.
Let’s compare below:
In 2019, USC had a record-breaking 66,000 apply and accepted only 11 percent.
In 2018, USC had 64,256 applicants and accepted only 13 percent (8,258).
The last time USC had a 16-percent acceptance rate was 2017.
