The process of getting into the program felt easy because the admissions staff is so helpful. They call you and email you frequently letting you know what you need to do and how to do it. They are super friendly and caring about you personally. I didn't have any challenges whatsoever when applying. The most important criteria for admission are the essays. My tip for admission is to be on top of everything from the start. Don't slack and apply early.

There's definitely a variety of people at southern cal but you will mostly find stunningly gorgeous laid-back surfers and beach-goers wherever you are.

It is rigorous. At most college you can work part time and get by and succeed in your classes but the MAT program at USC, which I just started, is very challenging. I feel like I'm getting the most for the money I put into it, but it is very difficult to work and I haven't even started the field work yet.

State of the art computers with updated software is all I need. They are accessible at all hours of the day.

USC offers an online program through the VAC for their social work program. This program is unique and still offers the same quality education that the on campus students receive.

When you are inside campus it feels as if you are not even in the center of a huge city. You feel as if you we're in some small college town, especially when you live in the dorms. Yet, you are able to explore one of the coolest cities in the world anytime you want.

Everyone loves being at USC. Overall, the weather is gorgeous, most of the students are beautiful, and the school is great. The only downside is the surrounding area.

Inland Los Angeles is ideal. Hardly rains but gets pretty hot during summer. Nothing to complain about.

It depends where you live off campus. If you live by University Gateway, there is tons of options downstairs and next to that side of frat row. Downtown has SO many options (if you have a car) ranging from expensive to cheap takeout

It has amazing connections and the education is good.

The campus-owned housing at USC definitely is not the most luxurious around, but it is close to campus and most are quite spacious. There are other living options for students living out of the dorms, such as apartment buildings like Gateway or West 27th. While these buildings are nicer than the campus-owned options, they can be quite pricey. If money is not an issue, they are perfectly located and have tons of amenities at the bottoms of the buildings, such as restaurants and drug stores.

I am a broadcast journalism major at USC, and I can honestly say it is my dream come true. Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism really prepares its students for the work world because all of the professors work within the industry simultaneously. Not only do they prepare you with the classroom basics, but also with common sense career tips, such as what to wear to an interview and how to prepare a resume.

Its a private school, they HAVE to have good scholarships
Recent Alumnus 2013-01-07T19:47:11Z
I'm in a MA of education program and perhaps its because its a professional degree and not one based on research, but I do not find the coursework challenging.
College Freshman 2012-12-31T20:51:26Z
I received a decent amount of financial aid, but the school is so expensive to begin with that you will most likely have to search for outstanding scholarships regardless.

I have my own car, and so do many others so it fairly easy to find rides from people or use the bus and metro that run right by campus. We also have campus cruiser that takes us around in the evenings for free.

As a mechanical engineering major, I do not recommend it unless you are truly ready to stick it out. Most the professors I had were not able to help out much and the classes are all very dry. I recently changed my major because I was disappointed that mechanical engineering did not have the hands on learning experience I thought it would have.

Nightlife at USC mostly consists of parties thrown by frat houses on the row or private house/apartment parties through word of mouth--this applies to students that are 21 and under. Frat parties are overwhelming if you are not in the Greek system, where its mostly a bunch of bodies squished together on the dance floor. House parties and kickbacks are a lot more casual and intimate, but can also be awkward if you don't know anyone there. There are a few 18+ clubs around Los Angeles, but they don't play modern music and consists mostly of locals from the area. The clubs that are 21+ are great, especially in Hollywood.

Most places vary per price, but the best off-campus housing spots are houses a little far from campus, where the rent can be significantly reduced if you board in a double with a house of 10 other people or so. Most of the houses are Victorian style and generally fit at least 4-6 people, and are well-maintained inside. As for apartments, there are 4 primary locations that are very close to school, yet given this distance, the rent is much more expensive because the rooms are already fully equipped.

The weather is great because it is sunny most of the year. It sometimes rains during the winter, but there is not very much of it. Also, the climate helps me enjoy walking through campus during my free time.

I don't know much about the nightlife, as do much other engineering majors. But the on-call "campus cruiser" service that takes you anywhere around campus is great.

The money you need is there and is accessible to anyone but the process is not the quickest and easiest thing to do.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
