What AllFieldsAreReq said are really terrible things to base your decision on...
Um, excuse me. I'm about to get pretty damn mad.
These are my opinions. I am entitled to have them and share them. No one has to listen to me. I thought it would be helpful to relay my experience. Obviously I am not the only one that thinks SB isn't for me. I never said it was a terrible school.
I never said do not apply.
I never said to not come here.
I never said the education was crap.
What I DID say was that my tires were slashed. Fact. My friend's side mirror was ripped off. Fact. I do not like it here. Fact. I am trying to transfer out of here. Fact. I do not feel this school is right for me and the atmosphere does not gel with my personality.
This is MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT. If I have to say this ONE more time then screw it.
There is MORE than one side. This is true of all schools. I was trying to provide the other side, the less pleasant side. I have not made anything up.
I HAVE NEVER STATED THE REPUTATION WAS MY SOLE REASON FOR LEAVING.

And it is also a fact that I have also stated some of the cool things about UCSB.
When your a successful senior manager at PWC or an engineer at Microsoft, no one is going to stop you in the street and say oh you went to sb... party school huh... -_-
AWESOME. Excellent. No one is debating this.
I've been at SB for three years now |
Every single one of my friends in the Econ & Accounting major have found jobs before they graduated. (Big 4 & other good companies).
My older brother graduated from here and now works at Microsoft as a software engineer making nearly 100K... at 22 years old....
My roommate right now has an upcoming summer internship with Goldman Saks...
There are VERY successful and famous professors here.
Seems like you have a positive experience with UCSB. Your bias is just as apparent as mine.
And I never said UCSB wasn't great for certain majors.
I PERSONALLY am not majoring in engineering, accounting, econ...
I am an anthropology major. The department here is nothing extraordinary.
Therefore the incentive to be here isn't as great for me.
If any of you are planning to major in engineering, accounting, econ, etc then go for it!! In the end I agree that it won't matter to future employers where you went to school. Get those connections. Come here for the Big 4.
The weather is amazing. The school is gorgeous. The people are great...
This is subjective. I PERSONALLY do not agree.
It's foggy often. There always seems to be moisture in the air. My hair frizzes and it's annoying.
As I posted earlier, the beach is dirty. Seaweed.
And while some people are great, not all are. Just as I have never claimed that all people are bad and party.
People are smart here. Yes. Obviously.
I am done with people that do not understand that I was only trying to help. I'm done. I'm done.
I have my reasons for wanting to leave. They were personal but I chose to share some of them with you. I can see this was a mistake.
I wish someone would have taken the time to talk about their experiences with me.
UCSB isn't for everyone. Fact.
Will UCSB be right for you? I don't know. And now I don't care.
