Which UC's have great research opportunities for Bio majors?

<p>I'm finally starting to realize that prestige of the school is insignificant, it's what you do that makes all the difference. I've heard that schools like Cal and UCLA are ultra-competitive and internships/research positions are extremely hard to get. Anyway, I'd like to transfer as Bio major (preferably in neuroscience), and I'm deciding between UC Davis and UCSD, since I've been told that both schools are amazing. Any insight?</p>

<p>you want personalized attention and research opportunities and don't care about prestige? UC Merced awaits.</p>

<p>ucsd! everyone has one there. haha</p>

<p>LOL @RileyJohn.</p>

<p>I actually had that dilemma before, I had to pick between SD and LA. :/ Except I'm in EE.</p>

<p>UCSD.
UCI.</p>

<p>and PROBABLY, but I'm not sure, LA and B</p>

<p>I've been at UCI for two whole freaking days. I'm already getting personalized attention. All you have to do is research where a prof went to school, ask them about it, flatter them a bit and then ask a few relevant questions involving your course. </p>

<p>?????????</p>

<p>PROFIT</p>

<p>I have a ton of friends at Cal that are bio majors and they all have some sort of research opportunity.</p>

<p>SD bar none. It's to bio as USC is to film.</p>

<p>because UC is a research university, aren't they "generally easier" than private, regardless of merced vs LA? </p>

<p>or another way to think of it is just what you said, its ultimately what you do yourself that makes the difference. ie, if you can't find an intern at LA, what makes you think u can find one at irvine?</p>

<p>or am i just thinking wrong?</p>

<p>What GPA is considered "competitive" to get into a Bio major at Davis or San Diego? I know it's best to have as a GPA as possible, but what range of grades will make you likely to get accepted? 3.7+ ?</p>
