i don't know... Cal has a pretty good alumni network. I often hear about graduates landing jobs at prestigious firms such as Whole Foods and Starbucks.

Going to the rest of the world...

Europe is really pretty and rustic with a much slower and relaxed lifestyle. Lots of race tracks and engineering all within a few hours. France and Germany near the Alps are pretty awesome for me.

Asia has limited places that I would be comfortable, but Japan hits a really nice balance with all the engineering, manufacturing, racetracks, green countryside, mountain regions, climate, etc...

I never said it was negative, only you. I just said bigger and more expensive. Quit being so mean to USC AND UCLA.
