Which Film School Is Best? NYU or USC?
As one of only a select few people who has attended both of the leading film schools, I thought I should offer my experience to discuss the two. New York University and University of Southern California have vied for some time for title of having the ‘best’ film school. While there are certainly other quality programs out there including AFI, UCLA and others, USC and NYU, due to the number of illustrious alumni, the long history of their programs and the reputation each has are perceived to be at the top of the heap. So how are they different and is one or the other really the ‘best’? As I’ll explain, the answer is actually not so simple and really depends on what kind of film education you are trying to experience.
The first issue of comparison is location. NYU is located in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City
