There’s no doubt about it: Trojans are trending. The number of high school seniors seeking admission to USC climbed to an all-time high in 2018, with 64,256 students vying for a slot. The spike placed USC as the third-most sought-after destination for students applying to private research universities, behind only New York University and Boston University.
