Decision in a Day

An accelerated, one-day admissions event. Applicants interview in the morning, and receive an admission and financial award decision in the afternoon. This event is when we award our largest fellowships. 

How it Works:

Applicants for the USC MACC program must submit their application and required materials by the deadlines listed below. By participating in Decision in a Day, applicants will interview instead of completing the statement of purpose AND letters of recommendation requirements. All attendees are automatically considered for our largest fellowship awards. Before you leave, receive your potential admission and financial award package.

Please note that registration for Decision in a Day does not guarantee an invitation or consideration for fellowship awards (see eligibility requirements below).
