dang.. I thought I was smart from high school, and of course, this place just f**ing humbled me. At physics, I realized how dumb I was compared to some freaking geniuses out there... Spent all four years catching up to these geniuses, but it's o.k. I learned the lessons of my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed everything that Berkeley has to offer, that you are not going to find anywhere else... Life is more that just studying, and it is about exploring new possibilities, and molding yourself in the process.

Regret coming here over Yale and MIT and USC.
Student body is the worst, and you are not treated as a person but just a number (over 30,000 students, obviously I should have realized this).If you are studying engineering, go anywhere that is ABET credited. The programs are the same and the notion that Berkeley is top for engineering only applies to graduate school.

I don't know anyone at Berkeley who wouldn't choose to come here again. This school has so much to offer both academically and outside of the classroom. I know a lot of people are critical of the issues Berkeley faces especially when it comes to budget issues- we don't have the kind of money here that you'd expect from a top private school- not all the buildings on campus are maintained perfectly, not every class has just 15 students to a teacher. But the way you're challenged here is amazing, and the community you experience exceeds expectations. Everyone here is passionate about something and it's so awesome. If you're worried about fitting in at a big school, don't. When you're in a community at Berkeley, you find yourself running into people you know on campus constantly, to the point where the school doesn't feel that big at all.
