has an excellent location in Los Angeles to study a
wide variety of subjects. Unfortunately, USC is poorly
The staff is often surly, rude and very cold.
The faculty is generally self absorbed. The
who are friendly often transfer from the tiresome bureaucracy at
USC. I met some great friends including my wife
at USC. If you are from an elite, well
moneyed Southern California family, USC's contacts and your
will be important to your success. However, most of
the contacts are your own family's contacts. If you
are not from an elite family, please realize that you
may spend an exhorbitant sum for tuition for personal alumni
contacts that you are not likely to obtain. I
did not think of USC when attending professional school.
Simply put, unless you obtain a full scholarship to USC,
the school is not a good value.
