I came to UCSB from a small high school in Colorado and I felt completely lost. The academics are very demanding and professors won't make sure you pass. Texts are very difficult. I didnt like the school because it was so huge. If youre from California and are used to BIG schools, I think you'll like it.
commentDon't you think that at a competitive university like this, it's not the professors' responsibility whether you pass or not? It's our responsibility.
questionI'm also from a small town in Colorado and I'm thinking about going there. I'm not used to a big school sense I currently attend a 3A school in Western Colorado. Is Santa Barbara a big change from the mountains? At any point were you home sick? My other options are NYU, Duke, Wake Forest, or UCLA. Would you recommend going to one of those schools instead?
