What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! I grew up just across the Bay Area in San Francisco and my step dad was definitely one to push me in the direction of UC Berkeley out of high school many years ago! Family life happened and I am now (in my 40s) decided to get my degree! Best decision ever!

I love it here!! Berkeley is a great place to learn and I have met so many amazing people. I definitely recommend applying and checking out the campus. There is so much diversity and San Francisco is only a BART ride away which is awesome. I have seen so many cool things. Come to CAL

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and in a decent location not too far from San Francisco. The students are very passionate about what they do and it seems that the school really cares about providing students with clubs, services, and classes that can truly benefit them. It would be an honor to attend this school. A+ from me. Only downside is that it was hard to find good restaurants around there. And I watched a guy get arrested on campus so that was interesting. They don't really have parking options. It's a walking school for sure. The nature and campus is welcoming, gorgeous, and an overall peaceful atmosphere. Truly a beauty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley is hard. There's a lot of homework, but it's good. There are so many people advertising on Sproul Plaza and the Songwriting group is singing so it's easy to know what's going on. So many academically famous people. Giant underground library. Food is average. Area gets you out of your suburbia bubble. People from all over the world, but if you're a californian, usually about 3 people from your school too. Clark Kerr rooms are giant. Coed bathrooms aren't bad

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The hustle and bustle of downtown Berkeley one street over, the chiming bells of the Campanile at the top of every hour, the student organizations tabling on Sproul Plaza promoting their cause, the rigor of academics, the research and innovation going on within every department on campus. These are all things that make Berkeley, Berkeley. There really is no one way to describe the campus, or the community that inhabits it. Everyone at Berkeley has a unique story and path of life that brought them here, and everyone has their own goals and aspirations for life after Berkeley. I believe that this is the ideal school to come and find yourself and discover who you truly are and what you want in life, as there are new opinions and opportunities around every corner. The school itself provides the means to do so, as long as you go out and search for it. From the dedicated professors and faculty, to the numerous student services and organizations, to the sheer number of resources available to students at such a large research institution, there is something for everybody here at Berkeley.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley is often reviewed as the number one public university. The School is very proud of that fact and like to mention it many times over. But they aren't wrong. The school is a very good school and it is the place to go if you want a high level of education. However, I would not expect to do well at all. Classes are extremely difficult and you will not get as much one on one time with a professor as you may want. Overall a good school though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hello my name is Benjamin! I am a current incoming Junior at Berkeley. I have been around Berkeley for a long enough time to know that the students there know their purpose for why they go to school. The peer pressures are obviously there like any college but about 7% students on the campus drink which says a lot about the overall culture of the school. Huge homeless problem is one of the downsides to the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley has a rep for being cold, and rightly so--I mean campus is huge, it's initially quite intimidating. But in the college of chemistry I have a pretty small advisory group, and teachers make it a point to hold office hours; point being, there is an adequate amount of help and support, you just need to take the initiative to seek it out. I also find that the school's large size allows for plenty of room for people to find a niche--a close community is yours to be had and no less attainable than at a small school.
