HELP!!! Berkeley econ vs. UCLA pre-biz econ

<p>I know this thread has been discussed too many times...But I still need some more advises on it (>___<) </p>

<li><p>I'm a cc transfer student. I've been admitted to the College of L&S in UC Berkeley. So my major is undeclared and I need to apply for the econ major and take some prerequisite courses. It's pre-major too in UCLA. The question is, which school has more and harder prerequisites? </p></li>
<li><p>The most important thing I consider is which school is HARDER? In which school will I likely get a higher gpa?
I know I need to study really hard in both schools, but a high gpa is so important no matter for recruiting or getting into a graduate school. I'm not a super smart student with super excellent academic performance so I 'm super worried about my future gpa :( :( :(</p></li>
<li><p>Which school will give me better employment opportunities?</p></li>

<p>Plz help me!! Anything you can respond about these two schools would be great! Thank you very much!</p>

<li><p>Go on the university’s websites and do your own homework. You can look at what prereqs you need for your degree. </p></li>
<li><p>Berkeley will be more challenging. Most students at both schools are intelligent, but I believe Berk is more competitive. Don’t let that undermine UCLA… it’ll be challenging. </p></li>
<li><p>Again, do your homework. I know berkeley publishes their student’s employment/grad schools. Honestly, it depends on what exactly you want to do…? finance/acct/marketing/etc</p></li>

<p>My opinion is to take a look at both schools and see where you really “fit”. Berkeley is very prestigious and UCLA is such a great school. In the end, it’s only 2 years of your life so pick where you think you could see yourself really enjoying yourself, and killing yourself studying.</p>

<p>Dude… I am in the same shoe as you
UCLA Biz econ or UCB econ
I posted a thread earlier… <a href=“[/url]”></a>
People seem to prefer LA, but I’m actually leaning a bit towards Berkeley, just because of it’s prestige.</p>

<p>Hi Kokimail :)exactly the same situation… I’ve researched a lot of stuff about these two schools, most people just consider Berkeley as the “better” one (yes, because of it’s presitge)
I’m an international student, I don’t need to think about which is closer to my home or which is cheaper…but it makes the dilemma even more difficult</p>

<p>My son is a biz econ major at UCLA. He chose UCLA because he feels happier there :)</p>

<p>One of my friend is an international student and pretty much in the same boat as us and he chose Berkeley in a heart beat. That may be because internationally Berkeley has a definite name recognition compared to UCLA.
For your question #2, You have to keep in mind that UCLA has a quarter system and from all the LA transfer that I’ve known, they all struggled for adjustment. But yet again I’ve heard of cut-throat competitiveness at Berkeley so I don’t have a definite answer lol
Did you visit both campuses?</p>
