UCI Regents or UCLA with no financial aid
Hi guys! I recently got all of my decisions and I've narrowed it down to UCI (Regents and Dean's scholarship) and UCLA (no financial aid). UCLA has been my dream school for several years already, but UCI would obviously be much more financially sound for me and my family. I am on the pre med track within both colleges, and I understand that medical school will be even more $$$ on top of undergrad. However, I don't know whether to place the college I am more geared to over the college that will save me more money (( also, if I do choose UCLA regardless, do you guys have any tips on how to save loads of money (besides scholarships)? thank you!1 replies
