What college at UCSD were you accepted to? that may also factor in, depending on which one it is (ie ERC, sixth, marshall, etc...)
I've had friends succeed at both institutions, I've had friends get "lost" at UCLA while I had other friends become distracted at UCSD. All depends on personality as these two schools are pretty far apart in terms of non-academics.
I took summer session at both and enjoyed my time in San Diego more.
Thank you all for your suggestions. I got into the revelle college at san diego
