UW-Madison or UC San Diego
Hello to the CC community. I'm a current high school student admitted to both Madison and San Diego. I would like to know what you guys think of both of the schools. I would like to major in Business, which I guess Madison is much stronger (with their business school) than San Diego. However, SD has a really nice campus and the location is amazing. If I choose SD, then I might need to take Economics instead. What do you guys think when comparing both of the schools in terms of their reputation, academics, location, the standard of living, campus life. Any advice would be appreciated...5 replies
