The best thing about USC is the support network and alumni connections. While ranked only about 23rd or 24th overall with US News, USC makes up for what they lack in academics with an excellent support system. I have not worries at all about finding a job, even in the down economy. USC has the resources to connect students with employers, and does so very well.
