Uci, Ucsb, Ucsd

<p>Hey everyone. basically right now, ive been rejected from ucla, ucsd. ive gotten into ucr and ucsb. im waiting for uc berkeley and uci. </p>

<p>at the moment, im really deciding between sb and uci (if i get in). im also considering or going to appeal to ucsd and hopefully there might be a reversal in their decision.</p>

<p>i just wanted to know what each school is like in terms of the city, atmosphere, things to do, basically what is different and similar about each college so i can have a easier time choosing which college to attend. </p>

<p>just fyi, i also am considering sort of going to a jc or cc and transferring but im really not for it.</p>

<p>You've already heard from UCLA? Interesting...cause I thought decisions wouldn't be released until next week...</p>

<p>Between UCSB and UCI it depends on what you want. If you have to decide between the two these are my observations: </p>

<p>In my opinion, UCI has a more commuter school feel, while UCSB does not. Both schools will provide you a fantastic education, but UCSB will have more distractions (beach, parties, etc.)</p>

<p>UCSB also has a slightly better reputation than UCI, especially in the sciences. UCSB's physics and chemical engineering departments are some notable programs.</p>

<p>Try and visit and see which campus you "click" with.</p>

<p>If you have your heart set on UCLA, Berkeley or USC, I strongly recommend going to a JC for two years. Ace your classes and decide on a major. It will save you money as well.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
