Even tho i am just a visitor, i have done my research on the campus as I plan to attend in a couple years. I have found the campus to be absolutely beautiful, and perfect for someone like me. There were no disappointments, and i cant wait to go again.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Berkeley suffers from inflexible and inaccessible administration, and students often have trouble navigating the bureaucracy to get the help they need. However, the school is full of activity and there are unlimited opportunities in everything you can imagine. The people here are down to earth, and what I love most about the institution is the focus on public service. There are numerous faculty, staff, and students here who truly care about social impact and giving back to the community, and that inherited sense of service is something that I will forever have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great learning environment that encourages a diversity of ideas. There is a great variety of classes you can take and there are a lot of opportunities to experience the Bay Area's tech scene. The class sizes have never been an issue for me because the professors always have office hours you can go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have so many mixed feelings about Cal. It's a school I never thought I would get into, so when I did receive my acceptance letter I was overjoyed. But the past two years of my undergraduate experience haven't been quite so full of joy. There have been plenty of moments where I wanted to transfer or I questioned my sanity for putting up with abysmal housing, food and student inclusivity in ever more exclusive clubs and organizations. But each day I'm learning fascinating ideas from people in the top of their respective fields. I'm being given consideration for jobs without even having to interview. I've found a supportive, funny, quirky, albeit small group of people I genuinely enjoy spending time with, which has helped significantly. Cal is many things, but above all it is an unforgettable experience and you'll come out of your time there tougher, smarter and stronger than you came in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There's honestly a lot of competition, you may arrive thinking you're totally prepared but when you get there you realize that everyone else is just as prepared if not more. Cal dining is a hit or miss. . most of the times a miss. Classes can range from 10 students to hundreds of students and although your professor might not remember your name, they're always available. I love the campus, Oski(our mascot) is a creep at times though. We have a meme page! There are protests but if there weren't any then it wouldn't be CAL. GO BEARS!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A little bit politically biased, but if your priority is academics and you're not much one for private universities, then Berkeley is the place for you. There are world renowned professors, state of the art facilities, and resources galore available for students to utilize.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school. the attitudes, aura, the environment is overrall an amazing setting. Everyone I met has been able to leave an impact on me due to their own personal expirences they have had at UC Berkeley. Going to this school would be an honor and privilege.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California - Berkeley is a great school: its academics are amazing and once you find your group you will be set. But, it's not the safest place to be (there are a lot of hobos), the food is not that great (it is buffet style though), the housing situation is terrible (10% of students experience homelessness), and it can be extremely stressful and competitive here. Overall, like all schools, it has its pros and cons.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Architecture is a hard subject. Not because its impossible but because lack of sleep is commonplace. Also, its clique culture is booming so if you are any bit different from the already strange zombies walking the halls of Wurster you might find yourself even a little more on the fringe. Even so find your place, sleep when and where you can and don't forget to bring your moleskin to class!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Berkeley is a great school! The atmosphere is friendly. There is the stereotype that people that go here are cutthroat but most are openly willing to help if you just ask and a lot of studies form study groups! The academics are challenging but top-notch and if you want to learn, Berkeley's the place!
