Hello, I know there are lots of threads around about these two schools, but I just found out I have to make this decision, and I am confounded because I did a really good job of getting myself psyched up to go to UCI, and I didn't get to go to the UCSD second look. Are UCSD students really miserable because of the work load? Is UCSD better if you want to go into primary care because of its research $ and reputation, or worse because of its physician-scientist bent? Will the reputation of UCSD make an appreciable difference down the road? Do students feel that the laid-back atmosphere of UCI would make choosing that school worthwhile? Why else would you choose one over the other? ANY thoughts would be MOST APPRECIATED!!!! thanks!
