This place definitaly has its ups and downs—lets get the downs over with first. I know everyone has herd the myths, and yes, they are all true: UCSD sucks when it comes to social life. Pretty much about 90% of the people here are really lame. Most of the guys look like your typical computer nerd, with glasses and a t-shirt comparing Super Nintendo to Jesus. They've looked like they've never talked to a girl who didnt have assburger syndrome, and hey, decent-looking girls probably wouldnt give them the time of day. Speaking of girls, there ARE some attractive girls on campus, but they are like a needle in a haystack full of ugly ones. Nobody here parties hard—yes, there are parties on friday and saturday night, but I'm not gonna lie, they are all boring. (The Ranch House is the one exception to this rule). Overall, if you are a cool kid who loves to have fun and comes to UCSD, consider yourself a diamond-in-the-rough. Ok, I'm not here to depress you, and with that said, this college definitaly has its ups. For one, this school's academnics is one of the top-ranked in the world. All of the departments from Bioengineering, Pre-Med, Political Science, and Theatre are all highly ranked. You tell anyone you go to UCSD and they will automatically know that you are smart. Many of the professors here are world-renowned, and many programs (especially bioengineering) are everyday coming up with cutting-edge solutions for the world. Besides the academics, Sports Illustrated was right when they ranked UCSD the "#1 Surfing School in the Nation." Myself being a surfer, I am stoked over the fact that UCSD sits right next to Blacks, the legendary beach break that can hold up to 20 foot swells. Don't go there if you are just learning, though, as you will never make it out of the whitewater. (Go to La Jolla Shores instead). I have one more piece of advice to those applying here: unless you are an anti-social nerd, pick Revelle as your last choice. Pick Muir instead. Revelle will be wishing you commited suicide with all the ridiculous GEs and dilbert look-alikes.
