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 #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?
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.
What do UCLA and USC students have in common? They were all admitted to USC.
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.
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!
