UCLA vs. UCSB geography major
Does anyone have any advice about UCLA or UCSB as a transfer, specifically for geography? I’ve visited both campuses, and they couldn’t be more different. I’ve lived in SB for community college the last few years and the atmosphere is so calming, I just didn’t make many friends there. I’m from LA county and have always wanted to live directly in the city (even though I’m anxious), but this is a toss up. Both schools have amazing geography programs. I got pretty much a full ride to UCSB and will be in the Promise Scholars program. I got complete tuition paid by Fafsa at UCLA plus a few extra grand of aid. Anyone have any tips on how the schools grade, and how personal it is if I’m a junior transferring in? I also hear it’s almost impossible to park at UCLA if you live off campus, is that the same with UCSB? How are resources are UCLA for students? Thank you so much! I’m so conflicted! And feel free to message me as well:) any advice is appreciated!!2 replies
