    They're all good. Both D's are in engineering (CS). My one D chose UCSD over CalPoly and the other D chose UCLA over CalPoly - not that there's anything wrong with CalPoly - they just liked the other schools better and they're more selective schools which appealed to them as well. Note - they also both turned down UCB even though UCB is highly ranked - they just didn't like the location and some other attributes about the school as much.

    Make sure you check out all of the attributes of the school including location, recreation, travel to home on breaks, etc. Also remember that around 40% of the engineering students will drop that major and switch to a non-engineering major so it's a good idea to make sure the school has good offerings in other areas of interest as well.
