Discus: College Search and Selection: April 2004 Archive: UCI or UCSD?
By Dawnyoshi (Dawnyoshi) on Saturday, April 03, 2004 - 09:06 pm: Edit

I've been accepted to both colleges, though I'm leaning towards UCSD, especially since I know I have about 1500 dollars in UCSD grant money, whereas I got nothing from Irvine.

however, both seem to be good schools. I know a friend who goes to UCI, and I heard it's good from him, and I've toured UCSD and have fallen in love with it.

I'm undeclared, but my interests are writing/journalism, music, theater, teaching (english), or computer art. I'm not sure which school would be better for these, though Muir College in UCSD has many writing courses required (i believe there's teo 40 page essays due in the first two quarters). Any alumni or teachers would be of great help. Thanks.

San Diego is much more prestigeous and it sounds to me like you have already decided. :-)

Good luck!

The UC - SD is more prestigious, and in your case it's less expensive than the UC - I, so go to it.
