I am planning to pursue a master's degree in broadcast/online journalism and need to decide between three schools. The choices are: USC (Annenberg), UC Berkeley (North Gate), and Syracuse (Newhouse). Ultimately, I would like to pursue a career in sports journalism after obtaining my degree. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance for your advice!

I don't really have any good advice for you, but I just wanted to wish you luck on your decision! I guess one thing I think might be worth considering is, if you want to pursue sports journalism, then maybe going to a school where there are lots of opportunities to be around sports would be nice. Obviously all those schools have great teams of their own, but L.A. also has tons of professional sports in the area you could report on, and a million media outlets to work for, too. So that seems like it would be a great way to get you networking during your program, which could then help you land a job once you graduate. Then again, Bob Costas went to Syracuse, so....

I also got into USC and Syracuse but I think I'm gonna go with 'Cuse. I'm an L.A. native and I think for me, the local schools lost their luster a long time ago. Something so much more exotic about a school on the other side of the country, haha.

Personally, I'd choose USC as their communications school kicks ass but that is just my two cents.

BTW, journalism is in a different school under the main school. Same building, different faculty (for the most part). That said, I agree that they kick ass, but would have a hard time comparing them to the other two, which I don't have experience with.
