I enjoyed the USC experience much more than the UCLA experience. It is more wholesome, if you will, and more complete. I left feeling like I was a part of something... like I was leaving something behind.. like it completed ME! I feel as though my money was well spent as I learned a LOT, made a LOT of connections, and had OUTSTANDING teachers that cared about me and treated me like a person rather than a number. Yeah, the area is a bit ghetto, but overall, the experience was great! :) FIGHT ON TROJANS!
