USC just got $700 million from the City of Los Angeles to build a state of the art hospital. The reason we are not ranked as high as UC med schools is because our hospital is understaffed. The reason we are in the "ghetto" is because we are THE county hospital. We treat 60% of the trauma cases in Los Angeles. Also, I don't need any attention from cute nurses because I have an awesome girlfriend. While East LA might not be a beautiful place, I get to drive home every night to beautiful Palos Verdes Estates, one of the most affluent and most beautiful cities in CA. Also USC med students get the best surgical residencies because they have the most experience. With the shortage of doctors at County, med students get hands on experience earlier than students at other med schools. As for my "lame" car, I don't think my BMW nor my Audi sucks. As for quattro, who needs it in So Cal? It never snows and rains less than a week out of the year.
