Some schools are known for some programs. USC has one of the best music programs in the country. World class virtuosos teach there. They require hopeful students to perform at a high level just to get in. It's right up there with Juilliard for music majors.

True. Hard to generalize. However, many of the classes will be the same no matter where they are taken. Calculus. Accounting. World History. Etc.

Yeah, all those gifted engineering students who flock to MIT and Caltech are wasting their money. Might as well study at the community college.

LOL. Yeah, calling UCLA nothing special is really stretching it.

Here are the only schools more selective than Cal in the state: Stanford, Pomona, Claremont McKenna, Caltech. That is all.
Lol, my kid’s roommate was rejected from USC and got into Cal. He’s a lawyer graduated from UCLA law school.

Again, doesn't make all much difference really in the long run. l worked with mostly colleagues who went to Cal and they were no smarter than me although I'm no dummy. Just sayin'. I suppose if I'd have grown up in CA, I would have gone there or one of the UC schools. No big deal. It's more of a big deal to the parents who then can tell other parents...."My kid went to so and so."
You have it backwards, admission wise, it’s harder to get into UCLA than UCB, while studying at UCB is harder. Here is a link for 2018 admission.

Accounting major is best at USC. UCLA has no accounting major. So you canít just generalize.

USC's music program is held in higher regard than Curtis, in Philadelphia?
