    U$C cost of admission

    Can someone remind me of USC's cost of admission or the MPL program? I saw the link a few months ago, but I can't seem to find it anymore. Also, does anyone have an idea of what % of those admitted receive the Dean's Merit Scholarship (half or full tuition)?

    Why spend that much money just for a name and debt ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    JNA, trust me that's what I'm trying to convince myself against. I want to stay in the LA region and I'm sick and tired of having people trying to convince me to go for USC. Everyone raves about USC's network, indicating that you "get what you pay for." I want to come out of grad school with minimal debt. I was on a 90% tuition scholarship at an exceptional school for undergrad. I came out with minimal debt and I don't want to rack up in 2-3 years the debt I never racked up in undergrad. I really don't think it's worth it. I think that if I am heavily involved in student organizations on campus, take advantage of internships, and get myself out there, I can do very well for myself even if I attend a lesser-known, significantly more affordable school.
