I am at community college right now doing my TAG (transfer admission guarantee) to a UC school. The problem is you only get 1 school to TAG to. I have been thinking about UC Davis, mostly because I've lived in southern california all my life and wanted a change of scenery. The other schools im considering are UCSD and UCSB. It looks like santa barbara has the best chemical engineering program, but it's the beach scene that i've seen all my life and I'm over it. Same thing sort of with UCSD being in so cal. Any opinions on this?
