    There is absolutely no bar to get into Usc cs grad program. Anyone willing to pay can get in.

    • Maybe because there’s no bar for basically any CS grad program? Why would you get a Master’s in CS unless you are pivoting your career

  • It is legendary for EE. Trash for everything else.

      Legendary is an exaggeration. MIT and Berkeley will be written down in the history books, USC is meh in comparison

    At least I don't know anyone from USC when I interned at google in MTV. I never worked there full time, since I am from Europe, they placed me in Europe... so my experience is limited to interns / my team.

    People I knew in google MTV - 2 stanford, 1 cmu, 1 kansas state, 1 mit, 1 harvard, 1 university of washington, and like 50 university of waterloo

    so... move to canada if you want to get into faang in sillicon valley I guess.

  • This article does not take into account size of class. It is biased toward proximity (California) and large size university classes.

    The Ivy league universities it mentions that are not on the list are east coast and very selective as opposed to largest class sizes.

    How you set up your metrics matters.
