- A very good school, with a great local reputation (not sure about its national reputation).
Known for its great programs.
Has a nice campus.
I don't have to pay for housing (will live with parents in LA).
- It's located in Orange. Orange is an awful place.
It may not be well known outside the local area? (Again, I'm not sure about this one).
Commuting from LA to Orange is quite the ordeal.
- A very good school, that also has a great local reputation as being profoundly underrated.
Known for pursuing an exceptional education.
An amazing location in the heart of San Diego and right next to the ocean.
- It's a pretty unknown school outside of the local area.
Have to pay for housing (although I certainly could afford it).
There are definitely things for both schools that I've overlooked, and I may have stated some facts here wrong. Corrections or additions are greatly appreciated, as are any pieces of advice you can give me. This will determine the next few years of my life, so please only respond if you know what you're talking about. Thank you so much!
