The newish campus of UCSB was built from an old military base, so believe me, I understand about ugly buildings. And no, I don't mind at all about them. But even at the worst, I'd LOVE to go there. I'm in love with BART and am tempted to write my PS about it. Also, I could get a job as an Apartment Assistant to pay my room & board while not increasing expected financial contributions. And, as a current RA, it goes along with my dream of eventually becoming a Judicial Affairs Officer for a University. :)

I'll be sad if I have to go to SC for LS, but I respect it as an institution. Now, they just need to hurry up and buy out the rest of the ghetto so my mom and I can move to San Josť.  :D

I'm sorry, but Texas is going down. And as I've lived around USC almost all my life, I can tell you that USCers are fine if they stick in student areas around the campus. Everything is within walking distance and people bike a fair bit-though nowhere near the amount they do here at SB. :)

I have to admit, other than a secret desire to re-enact the Exorcist in my dad's robes, Georgetown is probably my least favorite T14, AND is in DC. Blech!

It is very cold (for Cali) at around 45 F outside. During the day, it's pleasant, but at night being near the beach makes it quite chilly.

I'm personally applying to all the T14s I'd want to go-there's no harm in applying, as the cost is so insignificant compared to law school tuition, the additional prestige/fun/earning power of going to a better school because that one T14 thought you were interesting enough to admit despite numbers that might be mediocre for that school.

USC really is a fine school-and I've been an SC hater almost since I was born, having to grow up in its shadow with no desire to spend any more money than necessary to attend a Tier 1 UG. That having been said, USC is overall a better institution, but obviously if you like the South, it really doesn't matter, does it?

That's pretty good, but since universities tend to know universities, as well as the fact that they are much larger, it makes you much harder to compare-is there grade inflation? How easy was that biology major at a liberal arts college?

Then again, this could just be hoping that going from one UC to another is helpful.
