whats UCSD like? and is majoring in finance/accounting there good?

undergrad ucsd doesnt have biz bro. finance certificate only

then again you dont need a biz degree to work in biz (econ suffices for the most part)

been outta the game for a while - good to be back.

Virginia tech here, and it's a nice campus over here. Admission has been a lot stricter than it used to be, some smart kids coming through. Living on campus isn't that bad either, you meet a ton of new people.

I love Blacksburg, very cute small town. VA Tech is a great school but I'd never go there.
Norfolk State here, I know terrible school but I got in for literally 0.00$ Although as the saying goes "you get what you pay for" I'm thinking about transfering to VCU but really any college is open.

ucsd is a good school if your major pertains to a science field. their bio program is nationally recognized.

as for finance/accounting, you're better off going to a private college or cal state.

UCs are more geared towards majors that are theory-based and involve a significant amount of research (majors that end in -ology) Cal States are more hands on and practical (engineering, business-finance, marketing, accounting, arts, etc.)

Most of my friends who went to UCs that majored in sciences are going places. Most, if not all my friends who went to UCs that majored in something other than a science field are either unemployed or working in a field completely unrelated to their major (retail, food, etc.)

Amazing: asians, bums, ugly women, cutthroat in terms of grading on the curve

So glad I'm graduating this year.

SanJuan why are u even asking if Berk is great (this should be obvious)? Obv they dont have the hottest ppl or has the nicest campus but the name alone goes a long way in terms of recruiting. notch under stanford. plus its cheap tuition if you're instate!

is that a joke? uc's just went up 30% as did csu's.
kids are protesting, teachers got 10% paycuts and have thus been told to do '10% less work'
california school prices are rape, and any of you going are getting ripped off to be honest...

^granted, CA college tuition prices are unbelievably high, but if you're instate, you're still paying less than someone out of state who moves to CA just for college. i think that's what he meant.

edit: we should have an official California college thread haha

fuck all of these student loans / financial aid / debts waiting to be repaid.
i am pretty sure i am going to go to SMC , under the honors program.

no idea what i want to do after i transfer out though.

Anybody here go to SMC ? How is it there, as i have heard its basically 13th grade, but i have no problem getting my GE out of the way for cheap, and than defining a major that i want to pursue.

give me da rundown.

It's a serious question, my roommate is from Oakland and regards Cal State as the best college there, so I thought I'd ask my Hypebrahs.

the college system in california typically ranks like this:

1. UCs
2. Privates
3. CSUs

Although, there are some CSUs (notably the Cal Polys) that are just as reputable as some of the UCs and Privates.

At the end of the day, it all depends on your attitude and motivation. I have friends that graduated from top UCs who don't have jobs, and friends who graduated from CSUs who have fine positions.
