University of Caucasians Losing out to Asians. It's so sad that UCLA students think that they can vicariously experience pride through their Nobel laureates. It makes no sense because you UCLA students aren’t actually the ones who discovered or made break through advances in science or academia. Just because UCLA managed to “acquire” these elite individuals, doesn’t mean their loftiness rubs off on you guys. Stop trying to vicariously feel pride in something you didn’t achieve, or in other words don’t ride others’ coattails. I don’t care that UCLA had a longer tradition of academic excellence over USC, because this will reverse with time, and trend has already begun. We actually have the means to acquire the top researchers and professors, because we can offer them what they’re worth, unlike your public institution (that greatly emphasizes far-left Socialist ideals) in trying to make them “altruistic scholars” who donate their good will to your lame institution. No, your administration has got it wrong—we live in a Capitalist society—and they (your researchers and professors) want to get paid what they’re worth. This is why there is a mass exodus of UCLA and Berkeley’s faculty. I hope you Bruins enjoy reminiscing about the “good ol’ days” of when UCLA was academically and on occasion athletically superior to USC.
Some of you make claims that UCLA students got accepted to USC as well huh? But why is it that a lot of international students, who got accepted to both, chose USC over UCLA? They get no financial aid, and they have to pay several thousand dollars more per year as a USC student. I thought it was foolish to spend more on an academically inferior school? And what about that bonehead who wrote a definition of USC, claiming to have audited a class at USC, but said that it was “community college” level? I thought UCLA students were smarter than to spend $4,000+ on our “community college” classes? And if you did actually take it, why'd you audit it? What, was the curve too lofty for you? You didn't take it, and that was a lame attempt at labeling our academics "community college" level.
You guys aren’t some “quasi-Ivy League” like some of you meatheads imply. The UC system is nowhere near Ivy Leagues, just in its shadows at best.
Finally, look at all the negative energy UCLA students muster up to deride USC on this site. What a bunch of pathetic, small-minded people who know that their luster is dulled by us Trojans.
UCLA student #1: Dude, did you see that Ferrari rolling through here to get to the multimillion dollar neighborhoods that surround our campus?
UCLA student #2: Yeah, it had USC alumni plates attached to it! Next thing you know, they'll tear down our campus so that a runway can be built for the Gulstream jets that USC alumni will ride in. I wonder if they make big enough alumni plates to those as well?
University of Caucasians Lost Amongst Asians
"Bro, North Campus is so totally like being in Bejing."
"Dude, that's why they call it 'University of Caucasians Lost Amongst Asians.'"
The University of California at Los Angeles, founded in 1919 and the largest university in California. Located in Westwood, Los Angeles, it is known for its rigorous academics, creation of the Internet and nationally-renowned NCAA athletics. The Bruins share a long-standing rivalry with the University of Southern California (USC).
Looks like I didn't make it into UCLA, so I'll have to settle for USC and shell out $30K to live in South Central.
UCLA is ranked number 25 in the nation overall by US News. SC, the supposedly great private institution is only ranked number 30. And Cal is ranked at number 21.
Talk about your freshman class all you want, SC. The bottom line is that you're not better academically than UCLA or Cal, and you never will be. Your student body consists of people who were rejected by UCLA. If you want to go to a private school in California, go to Stanford. At least you get a superior education for the extra money you pay over there.
And about your sports dominance, which university has the most NCAA team sports titles? Could it be SC? Nope, they have 83. Stanford? They have 88. Oh yeah, UCLA is number 1 in NCAA team championships with 95.
And how many men's basketball titles does SC currently hold? Zero! The sports arena draws about two people per game. And your new facility will never have the history of Pauley Pavillion behind it. Hey, UCLA sucks in football but at least they won one title in the sport. SC will never win a men's basketball title.
It will take more than a few blown calls to beat Oklahoma. Good luck winning a legitimate national championship in football.
USC is filled with students who were turned down by UCLA. Now they want to talk about being better because of their freshman class. It's hilarious.
What do UCLA and USC students have in common? They were all admitted to USC.
The real "University of Spoiled Children." The students at UCLA pay a fraction of what USC students pay and go to a university with a better academic ranking and better faculty in a better neighborhood.
USC students have to stoop to making racist comments about Asian people to justify getting raped for tuition at an inferior school in a horrible part of LA. Keep up that type of attitude. It's sad how much some of you fit the Trojan stereotype.
And I guess all of those USC students on financial aid are just poor white trash. It's good to know that you people think so much of the lower income students at your school.
Usually, being a private institution means being better. This is not the case with USC, which has lower academic rankings than both UCLA and Cal. As a private school, USC is an underachiever. You're better off not mentioning the whole private vs. public thing since it only makes you look worse.
If you want to go to the best university in the LA area, go to UCLA. USC students pay about six times the price UCLA students pay, yet the school is lower in the rankings. Don't get ripped off. Get spoiled at UCLA.
One of the top 10 research institutions in the US. Five UCLA faculty members are Nobel Laureates, as are four graduates of UCLA. The Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is ranked as third in the nation and the best medical center in the Western US. The school anually contributes $6 billion in economic activity to Southern California and has an economic growth that outpaces that of California itself.
UCLA professor Louis J. Ignarro won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1998 for his research into the medical properties of nitric oxide.
Every year, the London Times ranks the best colleges in the world. In the most recent edition of the Times Higher Education Supplement, UCLA was ranked number 26 in the world. Cal was ranked number 2 in the world. Stanford was ranked number 7. Where do you think USC was ranked in the world?
USC was ranked number 180 in the world by the London Times! I guess your entrance requirements aren't helping you much.
US News had UCLA ranked at number 25, Cal ranked at number 21, and USC ranked at number 30 for this year. That's because they consider the amount of money alumni give to each school. Of course private schools like USC will have inflated rankings in the US News guide. And even with that, UCLA is ranked higher in the US News list.
Let's see here...UCLA-26, USC-180...USC better in academics? Please!
It's a known fact that UCLA looks at more than just your scores when selecting students. Ask anybody who's been turned down by the school. You need extracurricular activities as well as high gpa and SAT scores.
And to the morons at SC who say they don't pay $30,000 a year, if you're getting loans, you will be paying for it. Unless you get grants or scholarships, you will be paying that community college in the ghetto sooner or later. Fight on for higher fees at a much lesser school!
According to the London Times, UCLA is number 26 in the world academically. And USC is 180. Wow. Maybe USC needs to make the entrance requirements even tougher.
A school that has won more NCAA team championships than any school in the nation: 94. In the last 35 years, the Bruins have won 52 NCAA championships, seven more than second-place Stanford and 28 more than third-place USC. Overall, UCLA has won a nation-leading total of 115 collegiate championships -- 94 NCAA crowns and 21 other titles.
UCLA: #1 in NCAA team championships
