    Is southern CA weather at Irvine and low tuition worth it over a top 20 school?

    Absolutely! Going to school in Newport Beach is about as close to paradise as I can imagine! Also, they have a lecture-based curriculum and none of that PBL garbage to waste your time with.

    UCI also jumped about 5+ spots in the US News rankings this year and they are going to make another big jump next year because the research dollars flowing in are increasing dramatically.

    well....

    UCI is around Newport Beach as per the address.

    I'm sure they talked about their curriculum at second look

    uci18753 clearly has seen the usnwr rankings from last year and this year

    and all UC campuses are getting increased research funding year after year

    ok, let me get out my crystal ball :rolleyes:

    you can't know for sure anything about USNWR rankings except that harvard and hopkins will be #1 and 2 until the end of time.

    besides, about 95% of everything you read on SDN is speculation mixed with hearsay all wrapped up in wishful thinking.

    This guy summed it up pretty nicely in the thread about the new US News rankings.
