    I'm a Cali resident who's been accepted and wondering whether I should fo there over UCSD or UCI. UCLA is my top choice and am waitlisted there. If you are a current student there or know a lot about the school please help me out with some advice.

    Yeah, I know about the May 15 deadline. Just heard from UCSD and already withdrew from UCI(forgot to mention).
    I guess it's UW's ranking and reputation that draws me. Plus, it's not on the other side of the country.

    personally, I don't think that UCSD's reputation is that far off from UW's. It is just a little higher on the US News ranking, but that's just one standard. It's not enough of a difference to spend the extra tuition. That's just IMH (pre-med) O, though. But Congrats! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> How honest is THIS opinion.. I am on the UCSD waitlist!
