" Great location but didn’t have the best schooling experience there. They don’t provide students with good resources to land a job post grad. Also parking is terrible and even if you pay for a parking pass you aren’t guaranteed a spot. They keep building more colleges within the university that no one asked for. Feels kind of more like a business than an academic institution. "

" UCSD is a great school! There are unlimited opportunities available. They are heavily focused on experimental research and many courses/requirements reflect this. The professors are some of the best in the world. I can speak for the Psychology Honors Program, which is intense and rigorous, but provides you with the skillset necessary to be successful in running your own research from start to finish. "

" It's a good place. The school is nice and has a good STEM program and a lot of opportunities for student involvement. The school is lacking a bit in the social scene though.There is plenty of research and the professors are also easy to get in contact with. "

" It's a research-based university with high prestige so if you're looking to go to grad school and/or having your career based in research I would recommend going here. Otherwise, it's just like any college. "

" UC San Diego is a wonderful institution located in a very beautiful place. The library has myriad amenities, the professors are kind and knowledgeable, there are some great food options on campus, and many wonderful students you will get to meet. I do wish that parking permits were less expensive for what you receive in return. I love that many students attending UCSD care a lot about their education and are intelligent but fun-seeking as well. "
