UC media majors - PLEASE help!
Okay so here's my problem.
I was accepted to all the UCs I applied to. For UCSB, UCSC, UCSD I was accepted into their film/digital media/whatever majors. For UCLA, I was accepted as undeclared into the college of letters and sciences.
I'm interested in a major having to do with media. I tend to like the more technical side of things - like editing/sound.
Most people are saying - you're interested in film, you got into UCLA, why wouldn't you go there?
Well I don't really understand how that works... I didn't apply to the film school, and it seems to do that I would have to have an intense portfolio and a lot of talent - something I haven't had the resources to develop yet. I also heard they only accept like 30 people per year, which sounds like a lot of competition and horrible odds.
With the other schools, I'm already accepted as that major and it seems like an easier option. But other than what I've read off major descriptions online, I don't know what kind of programs they have (like, experiences from real students)
I'm currently leaning towards UCSD, unless someone can more clearly explain to me why UCLA is the better fit.
