I just got accepted into UCSB and UC Davis, and ultimately want to be a physical therapist. I run track and field (long & triple jump), and will be on the team whichever school I go to. Here are the pros and cons:
PROS: Kinesiology Major. Offers Grad School. Less of a party school, more concentration on studies.
CONS: Cold weather (don't normally perform well). Over 7 hours away (driving) and an hour plane ride, which would get expensive coming home for holidays. I've heard on the weekends alot of people go home, and the town shuts down at like 9pm. Not much to do in the town?
PROS: Mild weather. Beach. Little under 3 hours away, easy to drive home for holidays. In the area I want to live when I get older. Good area to intern for physical therapy. Social life is good, parties are available, but there are places to get studying done and relax.
CONS: They only offer an Excersise Science minor, which means I'd have to go onto a Grad School for 3 more years to get my Masters somewhere else. Less "academically prestigious"?
ANY advice? insights? arguments? I have about 3 weeks to decide!
Thanks so much!
