Which school should I go to?

  1. May 1, 2008 #1
    I'm a community college student that has been accepted as a transfer student to both UCLA and UC Berkeley. My question is which one should I go to?

    Some background info.

    gpa. 3.85 (but had to work somewhat hard=> this could be bad)

    major: applied math( specialty:no clue)

    UCB and UCLA are both outstanding schools, in great cities. UCB probably has more to offer academically, at the cost of much higher competition and difficulty; but still both very respectable.
    They are incredibly different places however. It seems that in this case you should think more about the types of people you'd like to be working with, and in what kind of setting.
