I graduated quite a while ago but have a child applying this year so have revisted my feelings and opinions about Cal. It is in so many ways an outstanding university. The combination of talented and energetic students, a world class faculty, a beautiful campus, lots of school spirit (especially on football Saturdays), and an ideal Bay Area/Northern Calilfornia make it a highly desirable place to spend four years of your life. Especially for those families that will not receive major financial aid from private schools such as Stanford and the Ivies, it should be a serious contender for your #1 choice. Graduating with a Cal degree and relatively debt free will give you more choices with regards to graduate school and careers. The comraderie and loyalty among alumni is amazing and if you stay in Ncal after graduation you will find that most professions are saturated with fun/interesting/successful Cal grads. Bottom line is don't sell Cal short because it is affordable and relatively accessable to the competitive applicant. The substance of Cal is palpable and it has earned its reputation for greatness.
