What I like about USC is the alumni network, but I'm trying to find out if it's for real. Since I intend to stay in SoCal for a bit and would like to work in the entertainment industry, that certainly appeals to me...

Thoughts?


If UCLA is less expensive than USC, definitely go to UCLA. The Trojan network is supposedly great and all, but not worth $36K more.

By all accounts, alumni network is real. That said, if UCLA is cheaper you should probably attend.

Btw, what #'s are you using for UCLA's tuition? (I know I've seen ppl using numbers well off the projections).

Yeah, that's about right. The website says $44,822. http://www.law.ucla.edu/current-student ... fault.aspx

I think this figure includes the UCLA health insurance plan (around $1900 IIRC?), so if you are already covered under another plan, your fees would be almost $2000 less.

I accepted my offer to UCLA this afternoon, and then withdrew from USC after swearing that it was my #1 choice...
