    it all depends on what you want. if you want an extremely in depth science education if you don't get into med school (because only 30% of applicants do), then SD is probably your best choice. San Diego is among the best in the world for biological sciences as well as chemistry.

    However, if you're looking to be a little more well rounded going into med school or otherwise, i would suggest LA due to the fact that it has more diverse educational opportunities. Now, that sounds cheesy, but its true.

    As for the med school/gpa concerns, do not think that LA and SD have a great difference in competitiveness. Both schools are comparable, if not equal, in the rigor of their curriculums and students.

    berkeley would be the hardest of the three to get a good gpa, especially in pre-med courses.

    la and sd are around the same, youre right.
