USC School of Cinematic Arts?

Hey indie talkers, long time no see! I come here to post today seeking information on USC's film school. Basically I've looked over all the freshmen application stuff (http://cinema.usc.edu/production/fir...procedures.cfm), and I have a few questions that I feel to nervous to call and ask their admissions office .

Basically, I don't have the best grades in school. I'm getting a 2.7 GPA, with still one more semester of Jr. year, and all of my senior year to go. I would really like to get into USC Cinema right out of high school, but I fear that my grades are inadequate, and may ruin my chances.

I feel like I'm rambling, so basically, does anyone know about the type of students they admit right out of high school? Will grades screw my chances? Any other information/links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!

Call them and talk to them. 2.7 is pretty weak. But there's the SAT and if you've won some writing comps or film comps, you can overcome a 2.7 -- grades are just one part of who you are. The good news is you're just a junior, stop posting in Indietalk and do your fucking homework!!!!!

No, really, I don't mean to be harsh, but in all seriousness, Spoiler: do your fucking homework!!!!
