I' am re-thinking my decision to move to Dallas next year and seriously thinking about staying in California when I separate from the Navy. I would be moving from San Diego to the LA area with my best friend and completing my associates at a junior college before transfering. If I maintained a good academic standing with A's and B's in junior college, would I have a decent shot at getting into USC? What other factors would come into play for transferability? My major is going to be accounting and I have heard about USC's excellent business school/programs. Any help or info will be greatly appreciated!

Also, what junior colleges in the LA area would be the best to attend for transfer to USC?

I transferred into USC's Business school a year ago and it was a great decision. With A's and B's at the junior college you should have a good shot. However, keep in mind USC cares less for stats and more for you being a well rounded person involved in outside activities. Spend a lot of time on your essays, they matter almost as much as your grades.

In California, the coummnity colleges don't have as bad reputation as they do in other states. I attended Long Beach CC in the honors program. Try to find a CC with an honors program, it will look better on your transcripts. Pasadena CC is also very good.

Students can buy football tickets for $150 for the season and as a student you can go to any other sport for free. Or if you play and instrument you can join the band and go to all the football games for free and inaddition get 2 free tickets for friends or family.

I don't think you would have too many problems transfering if you maintain a really good GPA but do you have any idea what UC costs. GI bill or not, you are talking one of the most expensive schools in the country. As for best community college, anyone would probably work and yes, SC has a great business school. I am a huge SC fan.When I was about to enter college I had the choice of going to SC and living at home or going to a state school. I choose the state school but my heart has always been with SC, I too, am an avid sports fan.
