Did anyone else attend the faculty chat? It made me even more sure that this is the right place for me (if only admissions would realize
) And can anyone tell me about their personal experiences with alumni, campus, or surrounding area?
Stay strong, fellow waiters, stay strong
Really? I attended the faculty chat and thought it was just them taking softball questions to boost their image. I tried asking some actually tough questions and the moderator wouldn't put any of them through.
Anyway, despite that annoyance, the city of Davis is fantastic. It's beautiful, everyone is really, really nice and there are many great restaurants and ongoing events (tons of pub quiz nights, some local shows, the occasional cafe concert, on campus events, etc.).
The campus is similarly amazing though King's Hall itself is underwhelming. Shield's Library is fantastic and the law school comes with its own separate library as well just for law students.
So, when it comes to location I cannot recommend Davis highly enough. As for the school I have known some alumni who loved it and found good jobs, and some who told me "GO TO THE BEST SCHOOL YOU CAN AND FORGET DAVIS," obviously that advice is numbers based, for some people Davis IS the best school they can get into.
As someone with numbers that may get me into a t14, but who wants to work in Sacramento after graduation, I am still torn as to whether Davis, or somewhere else, is right for me. I guess, I need to get in first! Still awaiting evaluation
