I just got accepted to both of them as a transfer student majoring in physics. However, I'm also considering doing a double major in either applied math or in mechanical engineering, but I still don't know. I'd rather do the applied math, but I'm also aware that there are few jobs out there for physics professors and researchers (which is what I want to do), so that's why I'm also considering mech engineering. Plus, I may enjoy it as well, so why not earn good money and do something you enjoy? But I don't know since I haven't taken any engineering classes. But for now I can say that I enjoy math and physics more than I do engineering. So what would be the best option? To do a double major in applied math and applied physics? I suppose going to UCLA will be the better option since I'm unsure about my future (if has more prestige, so if I only get a B.S., I can find a job easier). But I don't want to live with a roommate. I'd much rather commute to UCI. What if I live in an apartment where the neighbors like to party a lot?
