The professors and a good number of students at Berkeley are absolutely brilliant. I have been working for 4 years and most people (from UCLA, USC) I have met professionally are not even close to how smart the people are at Cal. Cal is an academic school. If you want to foster your brain, Cal is the place to go. Since most people at Berkeley are very smart, be very prepared, it can get very competitive. Other than academically, I'm not sure what Cal offers. Some of the students are so geeky that they don't care about social life. I see a lot of people complaining about not enough good looking girls. HOW ABOUT GUYS?? I don't remember meeting handsome men. Most of them are just as geeky looking as the girls. And to defend all the girls at Cal, we're not all bad looking!! Okay, we may look geeky, but that's it. What do you expect from girls who stay up studying every night? We don't have time to play dress up! Although it was mighty funny to go into the computer lab wearing a skirt, they always look at me as if I were a dinosaur.
