What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school can be very overwhelming at first glance. There are over 40,000 students at this university, meaning that there will be countless new faces- some of whom you will remember and become good friends with, but many of whom you will never see again. The academics are very challenging, as there is severe grade deflation, meaning that an A at Berkeley is much harder than a 4.0 at Harvard or Stanford. All in all- Fuck Berkeley, but Go Bears!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One should consider when choosing his or her college the many factors that will be involved in their college experience aside from school prestige alone. While UC Berkeley has the top public University ranking to boast, there are many shortcomings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California Berkeley has been a great aid in my personal development both as a student inside and outside of the classroom. The amazingly diverse student body, world-renowned professors, and close proximity to many of the tech world's greatest company makes this university one of the best in the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It definitely is a for STEM majors, we have some of the best facilities and alumni around. We respect all those who major in STEM and we all share the burden of the academic rigor. However, if you are not ready to partake in the extreme pressures that come with the grade deflation and rigorous competition that comes with working with fellow UC Berkeley students, then this is not the place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school for anyone with a lot of ambition. If you crave intellectual stimulation and growth I'd highly recommend UC Berkeley. The only problem is if you desire a party scene you need to join a sorority. With such a large school, there is plenty to do otherwise though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My university has a reputation for not taking care of its own students - somewhat deservedly, but there are visible efforts being made to change. It's a place that does not hold your hand, and those who aren't proactive will not succeed. However, students learn from incredibly passionate and respected professors, and everyone on campus has a lot of pride.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very active school. In here, you will find many intelligent people with different kinds of passions, ready to teach you a thing or two and also to learn from you. If you're planning to go here, I definitely recommend it. The workload may be hard but it's a worthwhile experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California-Berkeley is the best public higher education institution in the United States. This is very noticeable in the academics, extracurriculars, internships, and research opportunities available to students. UC Berkeley lives up to its reputation of providing great academics at an affordable price. There are many opportunities for undergraduate students to get involved on campus through social and academic clubs, research opportunities, internship placement, and greek life/ sports. Students are generally happy to attend UC Berkeley and we have lots of pride for our university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Facilities wise, it's a public school so you get what you pay for (in-state). There's so many great options for vegetarians and vegans, which I love. Yes, there are a lot of protests and this year a lot of police and militarized-y campus which is...interesting. It's a very STEM-oriented school so I am surrounded by a lot of pre-med, engineering, and math/physics majors, which is cool but also I have yet to run into more than 3 English majors. Overall, great bang for your in-state buck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing place to learn and study however, dorms are only for one year so be aware of the need to find an apartment that is both cheap and close-by. Classes are large but the GSI's are really good (often better than the professor). Because Berkeley is such a large school, you can find basically anyone and anything.
