Why did you choose South Carolina: Growing up a GA Bulldog fan, it was tough to come to come to a rival school, but I was really impressed during my visit to USC.

Also the number one ranked International Business program was one of the greatest factors that persuaded me to enroll at USC. Plus you really can't beat the environment and competition that exists in the Southeastern Conference.
