Opinions on UMich and UCLA?

  1. Apr 7, 2006 #1
    I am a high school senior and I am going to be majoring in material science at either UCLA or UMich. I was wondering, which school has a better reputation in terms of pedigree? I am choosing my school largely in part to the research that I will embark in; I know professors in my field of interest at both schools who have already offered me lab positions and I am certain that I will publish atleast a couple papers if I go to either school, but I am having a hard time deciding which one to go to.

    Have you visited both of them?

    yes, I have been to both and I like both for different reasons. I am trying to figure out if one will pull more weight in terms of its reputation and name..
