lol that's about right


Eh... I'd disagree. Cal, UCLA, UCSD are all on separate tiers, but UCSD and UCD are not peers. UCD is much closer to UCI and UCSB if you look at admission numbers, general reputation of the various programs, etc. If you were to weigh one department over another, UCI / UCSB would actually be better than UCD (vice versa also applies of course).

I think it's more like:

UC Berkeley
UCLA
UCSD
UCI/UCD
UCSB/UCSC
UCR/UCM

This is what I'd always thought, but it's been ten years since I applied. I got into UCI and UCD but was rejected at UCSB, but I know of plenty of other people with different combinations of acceptance/rejection at those three schools.

I guess that makes sense; overall as a university they usually rank closer to Davis than to UCLA/USC/UCSD/UCSB.


Wicked UCSB trolling

Lulz good catch.

I never said they were equal. I said they were in the same general tier.

If you just say that I can't argue with you, but UCSC is not even in the same world as UCSB.

Ok let me lay that out for you because I'm in a generous mood:
UCSB: $720m endowment for a student body of 23000; 5 Nobel Prize winners, one Field's medalist
UCSC: $93.7m emdowment for a student body of 16000; 0; 0.

splitting hairs, bro. But I guess you could probably bump UCSB up to the UCI/UCD tier. Doesn't really matter after UCLA anyway.

WHAT? Dude, just because you don't know UCSB, don'd defend your ignorance. UCSB overall is above UCD/UCI (which have no Nobel Laureates and their endowments per student are much lower).

You have unnecessarily made my defend a position I didn;t mean to so strongly take, but your position is just wrong.

I have recruited (though in engineering and science) and UCSB is a great school. In my field UCSB and UCLA are in the same league (I say that as a UCLA alum) though not overall.

I am not quite sure what every one is talking about in regards to UCSB. I applied to the UC system, Davis and UCI were my back up schools. Got into both. UCSB was what I thought of as my ideal school, with LA, SD and Berkeley as my reach. Admission stats for UCI is considerably lower that SB. Get your facts straight haters.

Check your stats. Average SAT score for incoming freshman class at UCI was 1750's, UCSB's was 1850's. Those are both for students who actually accepted. Get your stats right buddy. Gauchos>Anteaters + Aggies.

Similar story here. I went to UCSD, but didn't get into Berkeley or UCLA. I have a friend who got into Berkeley and UCLA and not UCSD. I always thought that was weird.

With all the budget-cuts and furloughs, it looks like this might not be the case for long, at least from a cost perspective.
