USC is USC. Many of the comments posted try to compare USC to an Ivy league school. It isn't one. It is a damn good school with a competitive academic program that just keeps growing. Everyone says this, but it's true, this school gives you what you put into it. If you aren't the type of person who can go out and get what you want you don't belong at USC.

The business school is curved so that most of the class gets Bs. What that means is that if you're having a rough time with a class you don't get a C, but it is harder to get those As. I have been on the dean's list every semester for the past two years, you can get the As. You have to go to class, something most people don't seem to do a lot of the time. Keep up with the work and you're fine.

It is a huge school (15k undergrad) but that doesn't mean I don't run into people all the time on campus and in my classes. The social life is the same as academic, you have to go and put yourself out there for it to work. This is the school to come to if you know what your interests are, or at least have some idea of what you want to try out.

I am on a varsity/club sport and I am gone most weekends but still manage to have a relationship and plenty of friends outside of the sport.

I am not a member of the Greek system. I have friends that are in it but it's just not for me. I don't think the Greek system overwhelms the atmosphere. The people who hate it so much haven't made enough effort to stay busy with your own life.

This is the first year I have had a car and I must say it improves your life a lot. Getting a parking permit is a hassle but a car gives you freedom to enjoy los angeles.

I chose USC because it was a big school in a big city. A great business school (#11). It's rankings were constantly going up and the school seemed energetic around campus.

The downside is once you leave the west coast people fail to recognize it as a good school or confuse it with UCLA.
