taking into account that usc has higher tuition costs (but a better alumni network so they say) where would be a better school to attend in southern cali

I know very little about these schools but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this debate is similar to BC/BU.

Largely the same job prospects, the graduates of these schools dominate the city and you just need to go with the right one for you personally.

My unscientific opinion: UCLA has a very slight advantage in a significant number of different areas (job prospects, location, teacher quality, prestige, to name a few). Taken together--and especially when cost of attendance is considered--I would choose UCLA without hesitation.

Any money from either or is it straight up sticker price. Bang for buck at sticker would be UCLA. Although the allure of USC alumni is great and if offered a little bit of money from them and none from UCLA I would take the former.

what about grading? I read in that vault book that the curve at UCLA is a lot stricter, causing lower gpas compared to usc?

i was accepted to both and i would definitely go to ucla because of the better reputation and that I hear its a much better school

UCLA. If anything, their one-time retroactive pass/no pass policy gives it the cake. That...and tuition =D

UCLA, but only because I know one guy from USC and he's a %&*$!

Seriously, I think you should visit both and go with the one that feels better.  They're close enough that a stat sheet comparison just won't break the tie.
