"Competitive environment"?

ucbalumnusucbalumnus 82721 replies738 threads Senior Member
In other forum sections, UCB seems to have a (negative) reputation for a "competitive environment".

Question for current students or BA/BS graduates from the last few years: how competitive is the environment generally, outside of explicitly competitive setups (e.g. pre-med, pre-undergraduate-business)?

    @kiwibot You've dispelled so many of my fears with that post! I just want to say thank you, I'll be entering next year much less scared.

    Ahh kiwibot. That's nice.
    I still like my premed prebusiness. But I've been talking about it for an hour and a half all over this site. So I'm not going to here. Kiwibot's got this and I'm skewed towards thinking Berkeley is easier than everyone keeps saying, but I probably don't represent the majority.
    Been wondering how long ago ucbalumnus went to school.
    Also, have you considered getting Facebook and then following Overheard and Missed Connections. It's like all the sweet funny parts about Berkeley.
    This contributed nothing to this conversation.
