hi everyone, i've been checking out this forum for the past 3 months but never posted. first of all, i wanted to say a big THANKS since everyone was really helpful. it made me feel waaaay less nervous for my interviews secondly, i'm personally having a hard time deciding btwn USC and UCSF. i went to the USC welcoming night yesterday, and they were very convincing. i guess my main concerns right now are: 1) how much will the tuition at UCSF go up? and will it continue going up each yr? 2) is it hard to get a summer internships or post-grad job in the LA/OC area if you go to UCSF? it seems as if USC has a power network down here in LA and it's hard for the up north schools to get job opportunities down here. some of my 1st yr friends at UCSF are having a hard time getting LA/OC summer internships and might have to go for an unpaid one in LA or stay up north for the summer. personally, i want to be able to get paid summer internships down in the LA/OC area since my family lives nearby. are there any 3rd/4th yrs that can help me out? i would like to hear anyone else's general opinions or comments too. thanks!
