Campus Visit Notes for University of California-Berkeley
UC Berkeley is a great school with amazing academics, but it suffers from a bad faculty to student ratio. Overall I had a good impression on-campus, and a not-so-good impression off campus. I could see myself under the alabaster columns of the University Library in a couple years.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
There was a Chipotle nearby and many, many places to eat around the city. Another place I've been told was good was the Taiwanese Resteraunt. You won't miss it with its purple walls and flat
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
The BART station is really close to the school. Parking sucks.
