Hi. My daughter is trying to decide which undergraduate school to transfer to and has to decide in a few days.

USC psych major and will choose a minor, likes the semester system and smaller classes but not the tuition cost
UCLA psychobiology major, scared of quarter system and competition, doesn't like the large classes
Long Beach State ( csulb)- psych major, maybe chem minor, likes the small classes and cost and next to VA hospital, likes less competition, worried about reputation vs the other 2 universities when applying to medical school
Any thoughts or experience at any of these universities would be appreciated.

It’s not necessarily what school she goes to but rather how well she does at said school. If she’s the type that does well everywhere, the obvious choice would be UCLA. Besides, even if she’s not attending UCLA she’s probably going to be competing with their grads for med school anyways so there really isn’t that much of a difference.
