This school makes itself look like a privileged academic institution that is there to serve the needs of its students. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

Case in point. They will spend $10 million dollars renovating the Chancellor's house, but they will close CLICS, one of the only 24 hour places on campus to study because they can't afford $400,000 over 4 years. What the hell?!?!

Also, professors are international and cannot speak or teach in English very well. You will be confused. I came to school to learn, but if I have to go out and learn on my own, why the heck am I paying tuition? Oh, and tuition is going to increase around 18% a year.

Better to go to a private university that doesn't have like 30,000 undergraduate students who are only seen as a source of revenue for the over-bloated salaries of administrators here.

responseFor those of you seeking a private university instead of UCSD, just make sure that the private university is famous outside of Cali and highly selective. If it isn't, then you should just bite the bullet and go to UCSD because it is very well known outside of Cali and a lot of people think that it's as great as Berkeley and UCLA. UCSD is a lot more respected than San Diego State, everyone knows that San Diego
State is just a party school with easy work.
