Hello, I transferred out of a UC to go to USC my JR year. I was very exited to go to USC it was a dream come true at the time, but a series of bad experiences has made me decide to cut my losses now after 1 semester and go back.
First was the housing. There isnt enough and what is avaiable sucks because the area is all ghetto. the school is in south central LA, and there are alot of bums around, I constantly get hit up by bums for money, sometimes several times a day. i often feel unsafe in the area since crime is so prevalant. the school sends out warning emails constantly about new crimes including armed robbery and assault (sometimes resulting in death) in the area to students.
Second, the school just isnt all that great. Sure im sure Cinema and Comm are great, but fot LAS its a rip off. The econ department is a mess and lacking good permanent faculty. I think students have warned me "dont take a class with so and so he/she is horrible" about every professor in the department.
Third, most the people that graduate cant even find work anyways. Sure you can do an intership on the side, but you could have done that anways. I was not impressed by anything at the school. The students in Marshall the BUisness school all complain about how they cant find work even with their fancy usc degress and how they cant get into any grad schools because of the b- curve.
I mean, i would live in the ghetto and put up with bad professors, lame and unintereesting GE classes, 36,000 dollar tuition, snooty rude and cold students, being mocked by other schools as "University of Second Choice" if i thought it was worth it for my major, but its not. perhaps it would be if i was a cinema production major but im not. oh wells, USC isnt for me, and i find that it isnt for alot of people because people leave it all the time to go elsewhere (probably came to their senses) which is why USC takes applications for every semster to pick up the slack. Sure USC boasts a HUGE range of students tha come from across the country and the world, but this is hardly a selling point as they have to search the world for people willing to live in south cental LA. well im leaving USC everyone was so rude and unfriendly anyways and the program for my major was no good. At least where im going I wont need to dodge bullets on my way home at night.
