    and the bar across the street where we went day drinking between classes was the top seller of corona in the US

    :O
    What the fuck, skippy?

    At any decent school, the student council president would have gotten re-elected for starring in a porno.

    Everyone who has a team in the Pac-10 (now 12) hates USC.

    Which includes ASU and UCLA.

    And Cal, which is an infinitely better place that both of them. So nyah.

    Like, it's 15 minutes by car but an hour by transit to get from USC proper to the USC medical center.

    Just as an example.

    USC is a total ivory tower, Chu; it's for super-rich kids, but surrounded by super-poor people. Given that college is really more about who you know than what you learn, and that USC (like most California schools) has a good Comp Sci department, it would be a good choice, if you can afford it.

    Between a good set of legs, a bike, a bus pass, a metro/train pass, and friends with cars, you could survive in the USC area without a car.

    I wouldn't advise going with anything less.

    Also, as far as I'm aware, USC is in a really sketchy part of town. Probably not bad at all for the rough and tumble life of Organ I Chu, attorney at law, but for us mere mortals, it's a bit scary.

    The campus is supposed to be very beautiful though.

    Unfortunately you're competing against all the other desperately poor ragamuffins, Chu. I do hope you get in. I just am concerned you're getting your hopes up too early in the process. Those schools have a limited amount of full-need students that they take, and they like it that way because they get tons of applicants and can be excessively choosy about their candidates.

    is it weird that I totes identify with my undergrad and not at all with my grad school

    they just added Top Gear series 16 to netflix streaming. Was this filmed several years after 15? Cause Clarkson and May look like a decade older.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Right, because it's in the middle of fucking Arizona; there's nothing anywhere near it, and they've decided to go with a low-quality, high-volume business plan, because they can't really compete with the secondary-education juggernaut right next door.

    And completely and utterly beyond Chu's reach because they don't want out of state students unless those students can pay. They have plenty of really poor, but bright and promising kids in state, and it's a state school.
