I've been admitted to UCSB and UCSD (and UCDavis but I think I've ruled it out). I plan on majoring in physics and maybe double majoring or at least minoring in applied math. I am interested in some kind of future environmental application of these and am also interested in climate science and marine science. I visited both schools and remain undecided. UCSD has better dorms and food and I like that it is more diverse and seems to have more international students. But I like UCSB's campus vibe a lot better - bike friendly and just feels more like a college (UCSD feels research park/commuter campus). I like to be outside and surf, hike, etc. Seems like they both have ample opportunities there. I am leaning toward UCSB because I just felt more excited to be there, but the party reputation worries me a little. Is there some compelling reason to pick one vs the other besides "I slightly like this one better"...? Strength of the programs, reputation, future opportunities...? They seem fairly equivalent to me in actual rankings and offerings. I guess I am looking for a gut check on this.
