Another bump. I am especially interested to hear from the person who said they liked USC's location better. What about it?

There is a lot i like about USC (their generosity when it comes to merit aid being one of my favorite things about them.) I want to work on the west coast, they are the only cali school i got into, and it seems like a really great place (have heard people rave about the student body.) However
1.) I have no car. It is very, very, very unlikely I will be able to afford a car. I here it is utter madness to be at USC without a car. True?
2.) I have no idea where to live. It seems on-campus housing would be best for my first year, but how difficult is that to get? How much?
ty in advance
USC just blind-sided me with 20k a year (i think, more on that later.) Few questions
1.) How is the student body? Hyper-competitive? Cut-throat? How are they compared to, say, vandy (my other top choice)
2.) Where do I live? For how much? The living expenses estimate given by USC is around 13k. Accurate? I wont have a car. Is it possible for a law student to live on campus?
3.) I am fairly certain i want to practive west of the mississipi. Does this alone make USC a better choice than vandy?
4.) Finally, I want to make sure I am reading this right. The letter says "USC... has awarded you a $20,000 tuition scholarship for each of the next three academic years." This mean 60k right? Seems that way. Just odd as my stats are hardly stellar for usc (3.7/167) Still, not gonna argue with em.
5.) Anybody know when the dealine for accepting the offer is? Cant find it and lady at the office just told me "she wasnt sure, but assumed asap"
Both gave me 10,000 a year. Notre Dame is closer to home, and will be cheaper. I have no idea where i want to work. Am pretty sure I would not want to work east of the Mississippi. However, i want to have as many options as possible. which is my school?
