Don't get me wrong, our campus is beautiful and the classes are very advanced and competitive. Most of the professors would like you to come in to office hours, but the things is that it is just way too crowded, so you don't have a voice. Like everyone else here, you become a number, or a letter on a piece of paper. The counselors here could not care less about you, and though they are nice and approachable, they've seen so many other people that they don't really care about individuals anymore. They will answer your questions generically, or if they're too busy, send you a flyer and you're on your own. (especially the nursing department.)
commentIf you're in the process of making an important decision on which school is right for you, keep in mind that UCI is a research-intensive university. Like other research schools, faculty there are mostly focused on research, which comes first. If you want to go to a school where you receive individualized attention from your professors, Cal State schools might be better for you.
responseThe big problem at UCI these days is not with profs who prefer research to teaching. It's the fact that the huge Muslim student group on campus is basically like a recruiting station for ISIS. I just don't know about this place.
commentYou should go the ivy. the ivy is best prestige. the ivy > uci.
