UCLA vs USC


Hi everyone,

I need help from you so badly! I've been accepted in both universities, but I only earned scholarship from USC (I can't disclose the amount). Both are great options; however, the fact that UCLA is more prestigious all over the world including my country, makes me doubtful. On the other hand, USC has an awesome network.
What would you choose? Any suggestions would help, so please give me a hand!

Will you look for some outside scholarship funding? Paying a LLM out of pocket without any aid may be a decissive factor in here (UCLA tuition is also SO VERY EXPENSIVE).

I'm aware of the price, but it's a significant investment that really has to worth every single penny. I know money does counts, but I need your advice regarding the quality of the programs if you mind helping me

USC is slightly more expensive than UCLA. USC says, "The 2015-16 tuition is $57,286 plus the mandatory fees for the academic year." But 2015-2016 tuition of UCLA was $57,100 including mandatory fees.

If I were in your shoes, I would experience similar hesitation. I read a post in the forum saying that none should prefer to go to UCLA; it was that bad. Nevertheless, every single person who has attended to USC looks pleasant to be there.
We need more genuine experiences and opinions indeed.

You should also consider what school is best for your preferred field ! USC has one of the best business schools in the country I believe, so if you would want to pursue business, perhaps that could be a contributing factor.

I've read the exact same comments, but I've only heard great things from UCLA alumni from my country so it confuses me..

Eres chilena? Piensa quizás también en el prestigio que tiene cada universidad (para encontrar trabajo después, por ejemplo), o el ranking (Becas Chile).

I'm unsure. I don't know if anyone else received the emails seperately. You can always enquire.

What I mean is they have just sent an E-mail explaing that I was admitted. They have not iniciated any extra information. No application deadline, no deposit amount, no final date for deposit. Only "you have been admitted" have you receive something different?

I received that information in a follow up email, you'll likely receive a more detailed email soon. My deadline was April and the deposit $500.
