Hey, I discovered these forums a few weeks ago and have been reading around a bunch, but I'm still stuck on choosing a college. So here's my situation:
I have been accepted into UCSD at Warren college as a mechanical engineering major, and I have received the informal acceptance from UCLA. Both schools have highly (and nearly identically) ranked and selective engineering schools, so picking the "better" program goes nowhere. I have been advised to visit both campuses, and I have visited UCSD, but my spring break is already tied up and I'm not about to jeopardize my AP scores by missing class to visit UCLA. So I'd like some info about how LA compares to SD in terms of the campus, general atmosphere, and how the engineering programs differ. Or any other reasons why I should pick one over the other other than prestige. Thanks.
