UCSC is an incredible school. I chose UCSC because of the faculty and location. My only qualm is that people see UC Santa Cruz as a party/hippie school and do not take it as seriously as UCB or UCLA. These perceptions are generally unfounded but it is a reputation that is hard to shake when applying for jobs. I have focused on college ranking and reputation for grad school because of this, which is unfortunate but feels necessary.
