Word to the wise: If you're coming out of high school with a normal social life and a desire to just have fun, don't come here.

The students at UCSD generally fall into two groups: engeneering/pre-med majors who are always preoccupied with studying, interships, clubs, and showing their intellectual superiority; and if they're not that, they're immature tools who are preoccupied with their loser greek system, trying to feel superior to others (don't believe me, go onto UCSD's, trying to be way cooler than they actually are, and trying to get over the shit they got in high school.

So, you can pretty much see that everyone is either a nerd or a poser. no wonder state students hate ucsd.

Granted, not everyone falls into these two categories, as there are some nice, approachable, cool people on campus who get real, but they have no power because this school is run by douchebags.

My advice. . .if you fit the description of the above person, find a group of people like you and take your social life away from ucsd. no, i dont mean go to the ucsd "off campus" parties where you can meet more douchebags, i mean take your social life to other parts of san diego. go to usd/state parties (where the girls are way hotter. . .just dont tell them you go to ucsd haha). hang out in del mar/encinitas/solana beach where the people are friendly. just do your own thing. san diego has a LOT to offer, just not at UCSD.

And then there is the academics. . .this is ucsd afterall. i've gotten a good education here, and theres no reason you shouldn't . . .the people who tell you otherwise probably never go to class.
