COuld someone list the UC's and maybe rank them by prestigiousness? I'd greatly appreciate it.

UC San Diego
UC Santa Barbara
UC Santa Cruz
This is the definitive list.

hmmm i dunno the "official" rank but heres what i think overall.

I think the top three and bottom two are right.
The three in between are arguable, particularly with respect to majors.

hey you guys,
i know this sounds like a dumb question but i need to know, when the top 4% of each school receive automatic admission to one of the UCs, the top 4% in terms of class rank, is that weighted or unweighted?

it all matters how the school ranks the students on the transcripts (I think). Oh yeah, it also only applies to california high school students. Being ELC (eligible in local context) can count as a plus on the application, just as being involved in activities can, but it really doesn't guarantee anything if you're already UC-eligible. I mean, UCR accepts everyone that's eligible anyways and being ELC guarantees you admission to one UC, not necessarily the one of your choice.
I agree with Thedad about the rank. When it comes to choosing between UCD, UCI, and UCSB, you shouldn't really consider "prestigiousness." If you're interested, here's what I think:
Berkeley - UCLA - UCSD - UCD - UCI - UCSB - UCSC - UCR

yeah I agree, it would seem more practical to rank by weighted GPA, but then thats a huge hassle for counselors and whatnot to sort out

I don't particularly like my school (UCD), but by ranking alone:
U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Guide (2003)
Best National Universities
UCR and UCSC are listed as second-tier schools.
Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs (that's me!)
The others did not rank.
