Part Time UC Berkeley Vs. UC Davis Physics

  1. Apr 30, 2012 #1
    I was accepted to both UC Berkeley and UC Davis physics as a junior level transfer student with full scholarship to both schools. I will be accepting one of these schools offers as a part time student because I will be working 30 hours a week (I have a great job + stock options and I am not willing and can't afford to part with it while going to school). I am leaning towards Davis right now because my fiance will be going there too and we will be living together near Napa. I am also worried that Berkeley physics will be a bit more difficult than Davis and will be too hard to manage while working. However, I still can't get over the prestige factor of Berkeley and would be proud to have a degree from there. Are these legitimate worries? Does prestige really matter that much between these two schools? Is there any other reason I should choose Berkeley over Davis?
