If price was not an issue, which school would you go to? I think AECOm has a better reputation and residency matching than UCI but UCI has the Cali weather! I'm fine with either schools so I wanted to hear your opinions. I'm also a CA resident. Thanks.

If money was no issue, I'd probably go for Einstein.

id go for aecom...even if it were to mean an extra 10 grand a year...Ive lived in orange county and the spaced out nature of everything in socal bugs me...have to get in a car for everything...and the lack of culture really annoys me too. the bronx is nyc, has 4 seasons and the culture there is amazing. Just make sure you are a yankees fan..or at least, not a red sox fan. theres just a special something the northeast has that is severely lacking in california (besides san fran).

Agree with this ^^^.

That said, I'd choose based on where I wanted to do residency. If you're looking for a California residency, you're better off with UCI. If you're looking for a NY residency, you're better off with AECOM.
