Hi, I am posting for the first time because I could really use some help in deciding which UC to attend. I am currently a senior at a very prestigious high school and I was recently accepted to all of the UCs that I applied to. My main concern now is that although I have always been a very motivated student, I feel burned out and incapable of handling a great deal of stress. I made a huge mistake four years ago when I decided to attend my high school because it turned out to be a very negative environment with teachers who do not teach well and students who are highly competitive. My years in high school have drained me of my enthusiasm and "drive" and left me feeling burned out right before college. Now, I am considering majoring in psychology and have narrowed my choices down to UCB and UC Davis. UCB is closer to home but I fear the competitive environment. Davis is farther away but, after visiting, I felt that it is less cutthroat and more laid back. I am torn between these schools because I would like to stay close to home (but still live in the dorms) but I do not know whether I can handle the pressure of UCB. I would appreciate any help from anyone. What would you do in my situation? Please, any advice or comments would really help. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
