Anne Said:

Are SAT Subject Tests Necessary for an International Student Who's Thinking About USC?

We Answered:

I am not a fan of USC but it sent me a flyer, so I read it and answer specifically for your question, but may include more than that.

Requirements for International Student:

1. Academic Record
a.Secondary school records showing each year's course work, and the grades you received.
b. Official documents in your native language, verifying the award of all secondary school diploma and/or academic certificates, with the title and date conferred, accompanied by an exact translatino into English.

2. Test Scores:
a. SAT or ACT. (You did great) but SAT Subject Tests are
Optional. (I think your SAT I is good enough). You don't need to take TOEFL because you took SAT already. so you don't need to any tests more..Bravo!
b. USC's International Student Examination (ISE)... you would take this after you get accepted and before you register for classes. But if you get 600 or more on the Critical Reading section of the SAT, you are exempt for ISE.

Two more categories: Financial guarantee letter and Health insurance. I don't need to tell about these, you may know them already.

Good luck for USC!

Hey why don't you go for the top private universities, such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Cornell, Stanford, MIT...etc?

Betty Said:

playing College Football as a international student?

We Answered:

Well, chances are you would not cut it for USC. USC is one of the top football programs in the country. Countless people who have played American football all their lives can't make it at USC. Being a B student in high school would get you to USC if you were a top American football prospect in the US, but certainly not as an international student who has only played Aussie Rules.

It is definitely possible for you to play college football. If you are a good enough athlete a program might take you as a walk-on. Whatever school you end up at, Do a walk-on/ask to work out for them. Aussie Rules players have been known to transition to American Football. There are even some in the NFL.

Clarence Said:

how hard is it to get into USC as an international applicant?

We Answered:

Once again, look out side of CA.

USC acceptance rate is 25%, which is pretty low. You are going to have to have very high SAT scores, above 630. Tuition and room and board are going to run you over $45,000 per year.

Christopher Said:

What are my chances of getting into USC as an international student?

We Answered:

Most students enter college as a freshman at age 18. You can go to USC if you have good grades and can afford to pay for it. It is a private college and as you say international acceptance is very competitive. Apply early in your senior year (grade 12). Once you are accepted you apply to the US government for a student visa. Bring plenty of money about $50,000 per year as the tuition is about $40,000 and you will need money for living expenses. You cannot work on a student visa. Good Luck!
