lol at UCSB=UCSC. Do you know how many Nobel Laureates UCSB has? Do you know the endowment of each university?
I never said they were equal. I said they were in the same general tier.
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.[/quote]
splitting hairs, bro. But I guess you could probably bump UCSB up to the UCI/UCD tier. Doesn't really matter after UCLA anyway.[/quote]
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.
