Don't judge a school by its undergrads, or else you'll think USC is an idiot fraternity of shallow fools. I was at a local gym once wearing my UCLA shorts. I left and didn't notice anything as I drove away. 10 blocks away as I was stopped at a light, another car pulled up next to me. When the light turned green, the car tore away just as the guy inside yelled at me, "USC, m*ther******!"
USC is actually full of great professors, good research, excellent professional schools, and the largest population of international students of any university in the US. The administration does quite a bit to reach out to students from the inner city, and is the largest employer in the area the school is in (South Central LA). For these reasons, USC should be forgiven for the hubris and excess of its undergrads.
