  • USC owns the Rose Bowl

    For anyone that loves to see bRuinSlob get owned…

    vanrc51, I laugh at you 36,000 applicants for USC – UCLA had 81,235 applicants – that’s right over 45,000 more applicants wanted to be BRUINS…

    Bruin Rob is my idol: I think it is funny how people have to refer to UCLA when USC and other universities are the topic. UCLA had absolutely nothing to do with my post; however, as a student who turned down UCLA opted to attend USC, I will address your post.

    First, apparently you lack reading comprehension skills. I said “36,000 applicants have been rejected for the incoming class of 2012.” Let me show you how you responded:
    “I laugh at you 36,000 applicants for USC – UCLA had 81,235 applicants – that’s right over 45,000 more applicants wanted to be BRUINS…”
    Learn how to read, USC had “rejected” 36,000 applicants, rejected does not mean total applicants. Yes, UCLA has more total applicant, but they are also a state university and have a significantly larger undergraduate student body.
    I’ll show you the numbers as of April 30: UCLA had a total of 72,657. They accepted 15,455 applicants. Acceptance rate = 21.27%. USC had a total of 46,030. They accepted 8,381 applicants. Acceptance rate = 18.21%. So, yes UCLA had more applicant, but they also accepted way more applicants than USC. Thus, USC’s acceptance is lower, which means that it is harder to get into in case you do not understand what I just said.

    Second, I do not see your point with this comment “that’s right over 45,000 more applicants wanted to be BRUINS…” Are you saying that just because UCLA had more total applicants that they are better overall? If I accept your argument, UCLA would be better than: Harvard, Stanford, Yale, CAL and so forth. You think about that, you sound like a clown.

    Third, since you have low self-esteem you addressed rankings. Historically, yes UCLA was always ranked way higher than USC; however, USC in the past 20 years has made tremendous improvements to their faculty and their ranking have improved significantly, whereas UCLA’s have remained stagnant. USC surpassed UCLA in the most viewed college rankings website.
