Just some advice: go to the school's website, input the address into the search area, and it pinpoints the location for you. Easier than searching a whole city for a school.


And click on the 'map' satellite button on the upper right.

Basically its a web service that google bought thats the same idea as mapquest...cept you can see detailed and zoomed satellite pics in color. Its cool to see what your new campus looks like; if the buildings look pretty, if they are crammed together, if it has huge university quads, if there are mountains nearby, etc. And also lets you check out the neighborhoods. The negative; it isn't complete in rural and some suburban areas of the US, so you can zoom in only to a certain mile by mile size point, but for urban areas, you can basically zoom in close enough to see even cars.

I find it a LOT better than looking at some faceless campus map of mapquest map with no dimensions to catch my asthetic eye. Hope everyone has fun.

It doesn't?

I mean...CA is a state of stereotypes and pretentiousness.
Glad to se you're keeping the tradition alive and well!

If you read the original poster's query. Not only did cubby want to know about job prospects. But also on what our 'thoughts' about the school were. Cubby, didn't ask "what are the good things about Davis and only the good things only please. And make sure they are relevant to the education and not to unsubstantiated stereotypes random people have". Believe it or not, any thought of greatness or image we have of any school, Davis or stereotypical and pretentious. Cubby asked what thoughts on Davis were. Simple word association would dictate 'Davis = isolated cow tippers'. Ask any other UC student and they would say the same as a joke. I'm just trying to let Cubby in on the know...sorry.

Oh! I can do this. I'm born and raised in CA. Besides driving past Rutgers and Temple once on the freeway visiting colleges back in high school, I don't know sh*t about these schools.

Rutgers- isn't that a state school in a really sh*t area of NJ? The same is really familiar cause it just is, but I still think shanks and crack.

Seton Hall- Heard of it, but don't know sh*t. Don't they have a good basketball team?

Temple- Best of the three. Apparently it's a pretty good school in a sh*t part of Philly. when I drove by one time, there were nothing but cracked out gang bangers on the corners.

I'm so glad people on this board have better things to talk about than hating n*ggers, jews, ch*nks, cracker a$$ white trash, and pretty much anything else associated with things they hate. It seems that xoxo is too full of plain old haters that can only say stuff on a message board since they are too pu$$y to say anything in real life cause they will get their a$$es kicked.

I'm glad most people on here post to help people, with even the negative posts meant to clarify on misinterpretations of individuals.

CA for natives only! UT and UNC both help in-state applicants by quota filling...why does UC have to be so nice? Keep California tanned, beautiful, and fat people free. Down with the influx of out-of-staters!  8)

SF is a city with culture. Davis is isolated cause #1: Sac town isn't exactly a hotbed of cool culture. Probably cause there are better towns around (like the bay area), and it is overshadowed. Maybe if you grew up in Iowa and went to Davis, then you would think it is awesome...its all relative. #2: take #1 and realize that Davis is not in smack dab Sac town...hence it is more isolated of the uncool.

Not to say uncool people go there....most are socal and norcal transplants from urban suburbs, and I know a lot of cool kids that went there. But it is also known down here in socal as a school for kids who couldn't get into UCLA, couldn't afford USC, and didn't want to stay too close and go to UCI, or were smarter.

I mean...CA is a state of stereotypes and pretentiousness. You tell people you went to Cal/you are a liberal smartie hippie kid, Stanford/really brainy preppy cool kid, UCLA/cool trendy kid, UCSD/nerdy science kid, Davis/ummmmm rural agricultural kid? i guess...

My ug rep of the area was of ugly girls and cow tippers. It sounds immature...but bruin04 is right. I also went to ucla ug, and we used to make a lot of fun of Davis whenever we met someone who went there because it is so isolated...but not islolated like say W&L, W&M, or Cornell, but isolated like....farms.

Get a car and you should be fine.
