Need to make some decisions!
...And this brings you here? :cheesy:
Er, whatever, go to U of M, 'cos it's a very short drive to Hell from there.
What do you want to study?
Did you get in to all these schools? Or are you deciding where to apply?
Are you going to be eligible for in-state tuition somewhere?
What sort of experience do you want from your education? A laid-back atmosphere with plenty of face-to-face time with your teachers, or a powerful academic environment that offers you anything you could possibly want to learn but makes you bust your butt for it?
I went to Berkeley and loved it. Being in the Bay Area is a big draw IMO. My sister went to UCSC and it's a great vibe there, with some top-class programs (marine bio for instance). UCLA is nice if you like LA. Michigan is, like, way over there to the right on a map.
If you're from California, go to UCLA or Berkley, both are good.
My vote though is Michigan cause...well because I'm definitely not from California! (And they make boats :thumbsup: )
fudge ucla and fudge berkeley, fudge santa cruz while you're at it, what does that leave?
Those are very different colleges, like Durf asked, are you already accepted? The gap in acceptance selectivity is huge between some of those.
It depends on your major, seeing how all UC's are about to raise fees again and if your lucky enough to score a scholarship else where then by all means go there. I don't know why some people treat Berkeley as if it was its own little private institution, its just another UC campus (granted it is more prestigious). On a side note, just because you went to Berkeley doesn't mean you know jack squat. I have a calculus professor who BS at Cal Tech and then did her PhD at Berkeley, she was hired to teach for one quarter here in Davis. Boy did she suck majorly.
As the only person in this thread who has announced that he went there, I'll ask you what precisely you mean by this . . . :grrr: :uhhuh:
Opps I meant, that just because A attended UCB doesn't mean they are the smartest person on the face of the earth. This can be said for other schools as well.
Side note: Going to a less prestious school doesn't undermine your education, a degree from an accredited school should be enough, the name helps but the degree gets your foot in the door and your work habits is what keeps you there.
Durf, when I am rich on day after I get my degree from cow town, I will buy you a beer so no hard feelings.
Well, with absolutely no information to go on here, if you're sort of poor like me, go the college that you can afford (also like me).
I vote anything other than Michigan, but that's just because I'm a Buckeye. How did Michigan get into that list anyway? It's cold and far away from the other ones. Joking aside, Michigan is a great school academically (it hurts me to say that).
Hey, no worries. :buddies: Just so long as it isn't cow beer . . .
Yes, I have been admitted by these schools.
I am figuring out which one I should send my intent to register form...
If its possible you should go to them all to check them out. Probably wont be the deciding factor but it may help.
If you wanna stay in Cali, go to USC.
fUCLA? HA!!! Don't make me laugh.
I voted for UCSC off your list though.
Run away from California. California is evil. After that you're on your own.
Or you can do what I'm doing and spend your first two years at a cheap local community college.
What year did you graduate? Also, what high school in what city did you go to? I got my BS from UCD in '98 and my master from UCB in 2K. Of course, I'm from the Bay Area, and I just love it here!!!
OMG an Aggie on the forum! I though I was the only one...
LOL. Aggie... Now, there is a word I haven't heard in the longest time. R U living on campus or off? I used to live in the Regan Area (Talara Hall) and then moved to different apartments all over the place.
What's your major? Have they finally completed the renovation on MU? I haven't been back to UCD for so long...
None of them. That you're asking a group of relative strangers for a recommendation on something that could very well shape the rest of your life, and you've not expressed any desires one way or the other, shows that you're not ready for college. I wouldn't be so harsh if I'd seen you around the forums before and if I knew more about you, your tastes and interests. All I know, though, is that you're looking for an answer in the wrong place.
Defer admittance to all four. Go out and get some life experience. Go to school when you are mature and ready.
