Santa Clara University or UC Irvine

<p>I'm another one of those people who just can't choose which college to go to with a couple days left. I can't choose between SCU or UCI.</p>

<p>For UCI, I applied into their Economics Department. If I go, its a major in economics and a minor in accounting.</p>

<p>For SCU, I applied into their Business school, the Leavey School of Business. I plan to do accounting with a minor in marketing or communications or even history.</p>

<p>For UCI, I got no money. SCU gave me $6,000.</p>

<p>I live 20 minutes from SCU, 8 hours from UCI.</p>

<p>If you want to throw it in there, I am autistic with a dash of Asperger's Syndrome.</p>

<p>Both SCU and UCI have what I want academically. UCI has what I want socially but I'm not sure if that should make a difference. I've talked to a ton of people and they seem to lean towards SCU with the exception of a few; those within my family and a couple of friends, one of whom has a dad who works at SCU. All the adults I know say SCU because of the great student-teacher interaction as well as the Jesuit Education, which teaches people to be their best. If you want all the factors, you can go to my xanga too-- <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>So my question(s) are:</p>

<p>1) Should I go to SCU, even if I'm paying 39k/year?</p>

<p>2) Should distance matter?</p>

<p>3) Is the 39k worth it? Is the school overhyped?</p>

<p>4) How hard are the classes?</p>
