Summer time Is Almost right Here! Summer is almost here!

Summer time Is Almost right Here! Summer is almost here! In only a few short weeks senior school students across the country are going to be going on summer break. We receive numerous concerns from pupils in regards to what they should be doing over the summer. There truly is not one answer.

Having read 46,000 applications, an array has been seen by us of summer experiences that students have embarked on. We’ve read everything from summer programs at prestigious universities, to work that is gaining at their local mall, to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro (literally). We admire students that pursue their passions.

Right Here is a list that is short of activities you could pursue:

  • Volunteer at a hospital, park, library, aquarium or museum
  • Become a Camp Counselor at a summer camp
  • Train to become a lifeguard at your local pool, pond, or beach
  • Baby-sit your neighbor’s kid
  • Take a college-visit road trip
  • Serve up fro-yo at your local frozen yogurt store (get some good work experience)
  • Sign up for a mission or service trip in the usa or abroad
  • Tutor younger students in your favorite topic
  • Have a class at your local community college or university

Whatever you find yourself doing this summer, be sure to look for a summer time activity according to that which you love doing and maybe not based on just how you think it will look on your college applications.

Transfer Decisions

In about a week we is contacting transfer applicants regarding their application to USC. A handful of students have heard of their admission at this point. Nevertheless, the majority of transfer applicants will get a decision or even a request for more home elevators or by June 1st.

If a request is received by you for more information:

Generally, the additional information we demand are your spring transcript with your last grades for the academic 12 months. This request just isn’t an indicator that the student is more probably be admitted or perhaps not; rather it gives us having a more complete history that is academic. As we get the additional information, you should hear of a decision within 2 to 4 weeks.

If you be given a page of admission:

If you are admitted towards the fall term, you’ll have two weeks to submit your dedication deposit. During that two week period you need to receive an aid that is financial (if you applied). You will also wish to register for orientation the moment possible. Finally, if you have an interest in university housing you should complete your housing application promptly, as space is restricted for transferring students.

Professional Development


Things have started to settle down round the working office now that all freshman decisions are made. We’re still taking care of reviewing transfer files, but our staff recently took a quick trip to Reno, NV to attend a professional conference.

While here, we attended sessions about various admission topics and best practices, such as how to give a successful high school see, what types of technology might be useful in the recruitment procedure, and exactly how to read college essays while knowing of our own personal biases (positive or negative). The meeting also gave us a chance in order to connect with our peers from various components of the national country, including many of your high school counselors. It in fact was a great opportunity to share our own knowledge and expertise and learn from each other. Even the most seasoned admission counselors on our staff learned one thing new at the seminar!

Summer is our opportunity to sleep, review what we’ve learned over the past 12 months, and prepare for the coming year. Develop you’re able to do the same during your summer break!

Summer in the town


It’s officially summer in Southern California! Campus is just a bit quieter, the conditions are getting warmer, and most importantly, the speed in our workplace has slowed down. We are also using this downtime to explore Los Angeles and all our town has to provide our pupils.

Like in previous summers, we’re utilising the summer time Restaurant Series, planned by some of our own colleagues, to explore the local cuisine. Just last month, we ventured to 23rd St. Café in USC’s yard. This unique restaurant offers American, Indian, and Mexican food, in addition to some fusion dishes. The Chicken Tikka Masala quesadilla was quite popular in our group! For the food that is second, our restaurant series took us to Umamicatessen. According to the website, this location is ‘inspired by worldwide road bazaars and also the classic American delicatessen’ and offers 5 different kitchens serving up diverse kinds of food within a hall that is dining within the Orpheum Theatre. A few of our favorite meals during this outing were the truffle fries, made-to-order donuts, and various kinds of Umami’s specialty: burgers.

Besides eating our way through some of LA’s notable restaurants, we’ll spend time during July and August going to social activities and checking away historic spots around the town. Some tasks we are going to experience include a tour that is guided of Disney Concert Hall and Music Center, enjoying the Downtown LA Art Walk, and hopping in the newly opened Expo line to just take the train to the Culver City Farmers Market.

What restaurants, tasks, and outings do you enjoy around Los Angeles? Tell us within the feedback section—maybe we can add your suggestion to our list this summer!
