Where do you think it is better to live while attending D-school (consider the school experience as well):
1. In Pacific Heights in San Francisco and attend UOP?
2. In the Sunset in San Francisco and attend UCSF?
3. In Westwood/Brentwood in LA and attend UCLA?

I just can't seem to make up my mind b/w these 3 school...

I guess it depends on if you want your school to be kinda isolated or not. UCLA is like in the heart of westwood, so you can walk and get to a bunch of places. I thought it was really cute. I woul choose SF over LA, but its just because of family. If i lived in LA, i would definetely go to UCLA. UCSF was kinda in the middle of a residential area. You would have to take the muni to get anywhere. WHere do you see yourself, as SF is like the opposite of LA. I dont know about UOP...I didnt even get an interview =( but I would have gone there in a heartbeat.

I never said I was holding 3 spots. I post to get peoples' opinions and experiences with LA and SF. Chill out!

I would choose SF over LA. SF is beautiful, it doesnt have as much smog, and you are closer to the mountains.

LA definitelyl has better weather than SF.

However, I seem to like the culture of SF. It reminds me of the East Coast in some sort of way (guess the coble stone streets).

SF also has a better transportation system, the BART, where as in LA, you'll definitely need a car to move around. And LA traffic is HORRIBLE. I used to attend college in LA, and eck....I just can't stand LA.
