USC, UCLA, or UC Berkeley?

anyone have any insights on these three schools as far as their business programs go? which one has the best overall "education" and provides the most opportunities in terms of internships, jobs, etc?

    haas business school is really good but you cant be in it until youre a junior so its not a guarantee- far from it

    usc prolly has the best guaranteed business school, and with the usc community it'll give you the best connections

    I had this same dilemma a few years ago. I ultimately decided on UCLA’s bizecon. Berkeley’s probably has the best name of them all but seriously it doesn’t really matter. Recruitment is pretty close for all 3 schools. 90-95% of the companies that recruit at one recruit at the other 2 as well. UCLA and USC’s recruitment is almost exactly the same. If you are unfortunate and do not get picked up by a recruiter, the playing field is pretty much even. Seriously, interviewers, for the most part, don’t really care very much if you have a degree in econ, bizecon, bus admin, managerial economics, or any type of related degree. If two candidates are perfectly identical, then where you went to school may play an important part. Then again, what two people are really exactly the same in all respects? You should make your decision based on which school you like better and what major requirements are better for you.

    Hmm, but I might be able to get USC for the price of UCLA and Berkeley with a Presidential Scholarship...

    I'm really confused on what to do.
