So this site is quite misleading with the positive grading system. Do not get me wrong it is one of the top schools money can get you, however when you have to deal with bullshit arrogant biology professors and counselors who tell you that you are not good enough to become a doctor you realize that

A. UC schools produce drones for the academic/research industry

B. College life here is AWFUL in this commuter school

C. The dreams of living life like in St. Elmo's Fire post graduation is shattered from the lack of assistance (unless you pay) from administration to assimilate back into society

D. Not to mention the BULL SHIT student fees that go to student affairs which is code for GREEK BOOZE FUND

E. Bureaucratic red tapes EVERY WHERE

Lastly, This is not a PRO student school, the admin sucks money out of you, the students will try to kill you in your sleep, and most profs could give two shits about your needs

I would NEVER EVER want my child to be a legacy at this or any UC institution. I look back at it and I would stop my 17 year old self from clicking the accept button. Unless you major in social science and decide to be a professional student the academics can be of some use, bur remember you will need one trustfund and/or sugar mamma or daddy. If you would like to sit with cut throat jerk offs who stab people in the eye with a pokemon pencil to be the first one at the profs. office hour you will fit in smashingly!

responseI wonder if things might have changed since then. Because I have found nothing but help here at uci. Also, students are super nice. Not to mention I was able to get a ton of financial aid.
