How is USC Cinematic Arts in terms of collaboration when working in a film project?

Hello everyone. I'm currently having a degree in film production in Costa Rica. However, my biggest dream is to apply for a master's degree at USC Cinematic Arts. The matter is that I have encountered so many problems through the curriculum of my academic degree in Costa Rica. The main problem is that there is no accountability from teachers to designate tasks to group members when working for a film project. So, whenever the same group members delegate the diferent task positions for the crew, everyone wants to interfere in the positions from the others. Also in many cases, you have to make an agreement with all the crew to decide wether or not your story should take place or not, and if it doesn't takes place, there is no more possibilities to explore your own vision. Therefore, I feel there is no emphasis to the individual whatsoever without a proper distribution of crew positions . I have this fear that if I apply to USC Cinematic Arts and I get accepted I will encountered this same problems. If this is true or not, I will like to know, how collaboration works if you want to obtain a film production degree at USC Cinematic Arts.
