USC partial scholarship vs TX [#permalink] New post 15 Feb 2011, 18:22
I know TX is #1, but is there that big a difference between them and USC? I'm stuck with a decision between a 35% scholarship to USC vs. having to pay the entire cost to TX. It would be nice to go to the #1 accounting school, but beyond the ranking I'm not sure if TX provides me with any greater value to pass up the USC offer. What do you guys think? Is the TX program worth it?

I also received 35% scholarship from USC and never applied to UTA for a few reasons, my undergrad is in accounting and UTA does not offer more extensive, in depth classes than what is covered in undergrad, where USC does. I also want to work in Southern California so USC was an obvious choice. USC has great relations with the accounting field in the Southern Cali area, big 4 plus many more firms, private companies, and the SEC. USC gives you many freedoms in choosing your courses, where UTA seems restricted in their course offerings. I am obviously bias towards USC, maybe someone who likes UTA can tell you what they like about it. In my opinion, #4 is just as good as #1, especially if you like the school and program better.

I don't think there's much difference between these 2; not worth it to go to UT without scholarship if you got one with USC

The terms were that I would be willing to serve as an Ambassador if asked and that I would represent myself with honor and pride.

That would actually look quite nicely on your resume so you might as well take the money and do it anyway. The difference between UT and USC is marginal, I would take the money and enjoy the beautiful SoCal weather.

I live in SoCal (about 15 minutes from USC). The weather sucks and the city is ugly. Hope you enjoy high taxes, heavy traffic, tons of pollution, and jerky ass people.

I applied in December. I did not accept the offer though. I'm deciding between Texas (pay my own way) and Ohio State (Graduate Assistantship 50% tuition waiver).
