I am transferring from this school. This is my first quarter at UCSD as a transfer student. I have found UCSD to be very unhelpful in all aspects of academic and social life. The school has a high suicide and rape rate and the RAs and counselors are over-zealous in looking for "warning signs". The classes are too big, 300-500 students which is ridiculous. Students are not very friendly because the classes and campus are too big and the clubs are lackluster aside from the greek life (which you have to pay to get involved with). It looks nice, but in reality your education suffers…which is disheartening because you hear that it is such a good school.
