Student & Graduate Reviews

"The master's program for Computer Science is highly overrated and merely a source of revenue to a University that exploits its students' financial resources by charging excessive tuition fees for sub standard course content and teaching material. Classes conducted by various professors are utterly useless and the only useful information provided by them is the links to useful websites where students can gain useful knowledge. International students who decide to pursue their masters at USC are exploited financially and gain very little in terms of knowledge. There are abundant resources online that provide access to higher quality education at far more affordable prices. USC is a sham. If you want to gain more knowledge, this is not the place to be. Getting a masters degree from USC by no means enhances the quality or depth in knowledge in your field. You merely have to learn from external resources which you can do at your own free time without having to pay the exorbitant amounts of money."

"USC is a wonderful place, especially for STEM majors. The diversity however, was not as great. I at times felt alienated, or discriminated against. I would say the entirety of the experience, benefitted me as a whole. My sister now attends USC and finds it to be very inclusive with all cultures and races. USC is a great place to build strong network and delve into one's major interests."

"Beautiful campus, lots of fun things to do, very good programs (ranked high in the world), but not a great neighborhood around the campus"

"USC has many connections and the name is respected. In order to make it past college though it is still important to make your own connections, work outside of the curriculum, and make yourself unique when it comes to the job hunt. USC provides you with the base knowledge in order to do this but I can't help but feel many colleges also do this for a cheaper price. Having USC on the resume does help though as companies have come to respect it and know the knowledge that is taught there."
