Hey guys I was admitted into UC Irvine as undeclared( my alternate), my first choice was business administration but I didn't get in. And I got in UC berkeley as pre business but I still have to apply to the hass business school later on. I dont know what school I should go to. I know its hard to get into Hass Business, but then again if I didn't get admitted into UCI business program what are the chances of getting in later if I apply. I visited UCB and I thought the campus was nice, but I haven't visted UCI so can anyone tell m e which school they like better and why? Also I need help deciding on a school Thanks

    This is a graduate MBA forum and this question should be asked in the general University of California forum.

    Since you were not admitted in business at UCI and UCB does not admit freshmen to Haas (need to compete and apply to Haas as a junior), UCB is the better choice. That is because UC Berkeley is a renowned university and has a great academic reputation. Do well at UCB, you should get a great job or later into a great graduate school.

    Where ever you decide on, have a backup plan in case things do not work out. Congratulations on getting admitted to UCB and UCI.
