What are your general comments?

"Overall a very positive experience. One thing that struck me was that they accept 15 to 20 applicants from each interview pool right off the back based on their interviews. That's awesome. If you're a great interviewer then its good for you. USC also goes by a point system. And if you get a later interview date, it doesn't mean you less qualified. Every pool gets the same opportunity.
