Ok guys honestly now. I have limited the playing field to UCSC, UCSB, and UCSD. I am a political science major that is looking into getting into Law school upon graduation. Tell me which UC school you would choose (SC, SB, SD)and why. I am really beginning to get nervous because I have to make a decision soon.
If you can't give me a reason simply try to rank all the UC's 1-8. I know this is mundane and completely biased but I just want to get a feel for how you guys compare the UC's.

I would not go to UCSC at all, because they don't have traditonal grades, which may have an effect on which law school you go to. UCSC is a great school, but I am concerned about how prospective law schools perceive it. I equally like UCSB and UCSD though.

Definitely UCSD... I think it's more highly regarded academically.

UCSC is and has been (at least from last year) impleting traditional grades. They replaced the P/F system but still give written evaluations for every class. A great thing for law school, if you get a good grade, it is like a little recommendation w/ every class, and makes you stand out from the rest. Although UCSC's Poli Sci department is not as strong as I'd like it to be (I went there freshman year, I am now transferring to UC Berkeley this fall), you cannot overlook the incredible grass roots political activism (although very liberal) going on around campus. Students here can be very passionate. It is very easy to get involved in both the great newspaper and radio station-work in news/public affairs if you're interested in politics. Many people at SC go on to top graduate and ivy law schools. The curriculum is really interesting, top professors, and if you are a good worker, it is not that hard to get all A's. Plus, you will need recs for law school, and teachers here practically beg you to come to their office hours, just to talk and get to know you, since all of them have to write your evaluations. This is all from my personal experience. I don't know anything about the UCSB and UCSD poli sci departments-although I hear that UCSD's is very good in terms of rankings.

ehh...UCSC do give out letter grades.
they started doing that like six years ago.
and teachers also give you evaluations, so it is beneficial to you because grad schools can see your grades and your evaluations.
many students from UCSC got into really good grad schools. UCSC's academics prepares you well for your future.
"The September 2003 issue of Outside magazine ranked UCSC 1st out of 40 colleges "that turn out smart grads with top-notch academic credentials, a healthy environmental ethos, and an A-plus sense of adventure."
