UCSC a joke for Engineering.

<p>I am seriously having double thoughts on attending UCSC. Many people have told me as an undergraduate I should go to Cal Poly Pomona rather than UCSC for Electrical Engineering.</p>

<p>If I do go to Cal Poly Pomona I would probably be transferring. So what do you guys think? Is it hard to get courses at Cal Poly Pomona?</p>

<p>Which would be the better option in terms of price and education?</p>

<p>I live in the LA and would love the "college experience" too</p>

<p>Your title is rather misleading. UCSC is not by any means a joke for Engineering. It may not be as strong as other colleges in certain departments, but that doesn't make it a joke.</p>

<p>It depends on what you want to do with EE, really. If you want to be on the cutting edge of things, that is moreso UCSC's focus. </p>

<p>I saw the Cal Poly Pomona campus the other day. It's...dull. More than dull. Flat and kind of in the middle of suburbia: nowhereland. I don't think it's the right place for a good college experience. </p>

<p>You've already posted this same question on the UCSC forums a few times, I think you ought to go out and ask at the Cal Poly forum to get a more informed opinion.</p>

<p>Jack Baskin school of engineering. Look it up numbnuts. Do some research. Go to pomona, people with your attitude are not welcome at UCSC</p>

<p>Don't say that :(
I might go to UCSC for EE...leaning towards it A LOT instead of UCR
You make me sad :(</p>

Don't be sad. This guy doesn't know how to be friendly/mannered at all and saw couple of his posts and it seems like he has a very bitter tone. His title is obviously misleading.</p>

<p>^I was just wondering where he/she heard that? I know UCSC engineering isn't on par with let say UCLA or Cal but I've heard it's still good from other people.</p>

<p>Also just got an email that I have been accepted directly into Jack Baskin School of Engineering and that only a few freshmen get it? I thought i was already in it after UCSC sent out admissions?</p>


<p>Yeah I also got the letter</p>

<p>Congratulations! The Jack Baskin School of Engineering (BSOE) is pleased to admit you to the electrical engineering major for fall 2011. Only a few, highly qualified applicants have been selected for direct freshman admission. We would like to congratulate you on your fine academic record, which has prepared you for admission to the BSOE.</p>

<p>I mean if you get into an engineering major don't you automatically get in?</p>

<p>I got that email as well. I think it was just a mass mailing to all engineering accepted students to tell us about the open house stuff and all that.</p>

<p>Don't listen to this guy, he obviously is ignorant. No UC is a joke in any department. UCSC's engineering department is great, and having the silicon valley right by is definitely a plus.</p>

<p>The engineering facilities are all pretty modern. Cal Poly was not my cup of tea when I visited.</p>
