I need to make a decision soon, so any help would be great. I would like to eventually work in business entertainment. I could go to USC for $170,000, or Tulane for $90,000, or I could possibly do 2 years at university of georgia (in-state)and then transfer to USC. Any thoughts on this or transferring in general??

I think the smartest thing to do is go to UGA for your first 2 years and then transfer to USC, because UGA's business program is better than Tulane's (UGA-27, Tulane-39) so there is pretty much no point in spending 90,000 when you could get a better education for free. I'm actually probably going to go to UGA for all 4 years just because they are giving me instate + 1,000 a year and they are pretty good academically, with an awesome campus. This is despite being admitted to UNC-CH and a lot of other schools I wanted to go to. I'm also actually considering a similar plan to yours (go to instate school for free for a year, or UGA for first 2 years, then transfer to UNC or a Cali School). But I'm in the same boat as you as to the actualities of transfering, all I know is the story of my friend's sister who didn't get into UNC in high school, went to Pennstate, and then ended up being accepted as a transfer to UNC with merit scholarship and is graduating in 3 years instead of 4.

I don't recommend transferring unless you are strictly only interested in money and academics. If you plan on having any social life whatsoever, transferring is not a good decision.

USC offers a program in business entertainment as a joint program with its top-ranked film dept. It's a highly selective program, and you'd probably know already if you were given the chance to apply. In any case, USC is the place to go if you're looking for that particular field, with its proximity to LA, high-ranking business program, and top cinema/tv school as a resource (i.e. film minor, if allowed?).

USC permits film minors but you must apply for the program.
