I got admitted to UCM for Fall 2010 but I'm still undecided on whether I want to attend this college or not. I've visited the campus, and although the campus itself is very beautiful, the surrounding area is not.
The reasons why I'm considering UCM are:
-It's a UC :)
-Small classes = more attention from professors
-Study Abroad Program (I really want to study abroad)
-Living in dorms > living with parents.
The reasons why I don't want to go to UCM:
-It's a low-tier UC. But I understand that it will grow and all that, but probably not for another 3-5 years.
-I actually want to have fun over the weekends, and I hear that 70% of students go home over the weekends -___-. That doesn't sound fun.
-Location = middle of nowhere.
I guess that's all. So, I'm just wondering if you could go back and decide, would you go to a JC and transfer (to UCSB or UCSD) or would you still go to UCM? And if you would go to UCM, why?
