西雅圖的華大UW好不好?

我想讀商

考慮西雅圖的華盛頓大學(UW)

或者是去加州先讀兩年的社區大學(irvine valley college)之後再看看能不能轉到UCLA或UCI....

我是美國高中生

錢不是考慮的重點....

想請教到底哪樣比較好?

能不能幫我分析一下?

謝謝

    I must.....strongly disagree with Kiev

    UC isn't much better than UW, perhaps in some areas, but that statement is simply false. (For that matter, UCs in general isn't better than a lot of other flagship state universities like Illinois, Michigan, or Texas). The only school you can confidently say is better than UW is Berkeley, otherwise I don't see a good reason to spend two years at a community college when you can get quality education at a large institution like UW.

    Unless you like CA so much that you must stay there.....besides some dark winters and rain, Seattle is not such a bad place to live!

    From your choices, I would say UCLA = UW > UCI

    2008-04-30 02:55:21 補充:

    The reason UCLA is "more selective" is because more people apply, hence the acceptance rate is of course, statistically lower. Quality of education is not based on acceptance rate, it's the resources in which a university gets, and the faculty members that it recruits.

    2008-04-30 02:58:57 補充:

    Honestly, I am not too aware on business, but for example, UCLA ranks higher than Texas in overall business, but Texas is #1 in Accounting and UIUC is #2. It's really all about the specific disciplines......

    2008-04-30 03:01:44 補充:

    Therefore, I often disagree with general statements that A school is better than B (unless for example it's a Harvard vs. Cal State comparison, then ok)

    2008-04-30 06:06:47 補充:

    actually i do think UCB is the best public university in the U.S. and perhaps my experiences differ from those pursuing a degree in business.

    2008-04-30 06:09:04 補充:

    we all have friends who got into "better" schools, but chose to go elsewhere for different reasons.....plenty of EE graduates in my year are now at either Stanford or Berkeley pursuing PhD's....

    2008-04-30 06:09:55 補充:

    and certainly UCLA is a good school, I got into both UCLA and UCSD's PhD programs...but I chose UW because of the professor that I get to work with.....we all go for different reasons

    2008-04-30 06:11:50 補充:

    Hence, it is simply not a truly accurate or precise statement that UC > UW. That's my point....if you really know what you are doing, it won't make that much of a difference....competency should be valued above the "name"

    我跟你一樣再考慮這個

    我是在考慮UIUC, BU or community college

    但是我很想去UCLA

    這是去年UW轉UCLA的錄取率

    Univ Washington 16 1 6.25% 0.79%

    https://www.admissions.ucla.edu/Prospect/Adm_tr/Tr...

    我目前是比較偏向去SMC

    然後轉學畢竟加州對於洲內社區大學跟對別的大學待遇差別太大了

    花同樣時間讀書可能你從社區大學就順利轉到UCLA但是在UW可能就轉不進去

    UCI有TAG(transfering admission guarantee program)

    UCI:

    To be eligible for a TAG contract, applicants must complete (by the time of contract) one transferable English course and one transferable math course with grades of C or better; have a minimum 3.0 GPA (or the GPA specified for the particular major); satisfy minimum UC admission requirements,

    簽個約 完成要求 輕鬆轉入UCI 幾乎所有社區大都有

    有問題我們可以交流一下

    我的msn: suki0924tw@hotmail.com

    2008-05-03 03:38:05 補充:

    那個錄取率 是16人申請,1人錄取 機率為6.25% 你可以再去看看其他年的

    bruins boy

    i just got to tell you that

    UCLA...for university...

    90% of the space is reserved for california citizens (see barron's)

    therefore if you live there, it's not that tough to get in

    2008-05-03 02:39:26 補充:

    i would also agree that if you want to look at the overall prestige

    i would say berkley is a tier higher than UW in every program

    however UCLA vs UW it totally depends

    eg) UW is generally better than UCLA in life sci streams

    i am speaking from objective point of view here

    2008-05-03 02:40:18 補充:

    don't get me wrong though

    UCLA is a good school

    and bruins are better than huskies

    C'mon, people. What's the war about? Just because "UCLA = UW > UCI?"

    2008-05-01 11:47:01 補充:

    UCLA has over 50000 applications (https://www.admissions.ucla.edu/Prospect/Adm_fr/Fr... and UW has 16571(Refresh to see diff trivia, http://admit.washington.edu/Requirements/Freshman/... What do 15 applications say about school's selectivity and quality of admitted students? Not much!

    2008-05-02 17:20:14 補充:

    well, i didn't say it's wrong to express your opinions. however, it will be appreciated and taken more seriously if it comes with hard facts.

    a friendly reminder: the question is about which is the better way to go about it, not which school is better. let's not stray too far.

    peace & out.

    2008-05-04 09:22:52 補充:

    hey, kiddo, from what i have observed, you were the first one who got all defensive when Frank said "UCLA = UW > UCI." and you are now turning the table and saying people being defensive. you needed to be defensive, while others need not? like you said, people express their opinions.

    2008-05-10 16:03:54 補充:

    look at your response, if that's not being defensive, i dunno what that's. oh wait, i know. that's called opinion.

    when i voiced out my opinions, i am accused of being judgmental. like you said, it's a forum.

    double standards.

    直接去讀西雅圖的華盛頓大學 !!

    UW Seattle 的商在美國大學排名也很好

    也不是每一所UC 都比 UW Seattle 優

    先讀 Community college 又不保證一定能轉成功

    我覺的你去UW比較好.省的到時後從社區大學轉不進UC的擔心

    基本上大學教育都差不多,前30名的教的都一樣,所以沒那麼有分別

    questions? a4ln143c2001@yahoo.com.tw - msn

    2008-04-30 02:20:37 補充:

    UCLA = UW > UCI? UCLA is much harder to get into than UW. Are you kidding me? Just because they are around the same rank doesn't mean they are equally selective. If it's the case, you can say UIUC is the same as UCLA then, although everyone gets into UIUC.

    2008-04-30 02:22:47 補充:

    Also, I don't think ALL the UCs are better than UW. UCI, UCSD,UCLA,and UCB are ones that I consider to be better.

    2008-04-30 03:07:35 補充:

    "The reason UCLA is "more selective" is because more people apply." Not true. What I meant by selectivity was not based on the acceptance rate, but the quality of the admitted students. Take my friends in UCLA and high school for example,

    2008-04-30 03:07:45 補充:

    I know plenty of UCLA people that got into UW and plenty of my high school friends that got into UW. However, people who was admitted into UW sometimes did not get into UCLA, whereas people who got into UCLA all got admitted into UW.

    2008-04-30 03:07:51 補充:

    Maybe it's biased since I am just taking my friends as examples, but I do not believe it's pure coincidence when there are more than 15 of these cases happening.

    2008-04-30 03:16:57 補充:

    In addition, some schools do not have accounting major like Texas and UIUC. UCLA is one of them and only provides accounting minor option, although all the big 4 firms love UCLA students.

    2008-04-30 03:18:47 補充:

    "I often disagree with general statements that A school is better than B ." Did you not just say UCB is better than UW? By your analogy, do you think UW and UCB comparison similar to Harvard and some Cal State?

    2008-05-02 02:27:29 補充:

    Exactly, that's why I said it's biased.

    2008-05-02 02:30:46 補充:

    and no, it was a legit discussion and we expressed our opinions.Nothing wrong with that.

    2008-05-03 09:27:08 補充:

    meh whatever. It's a forum for god's sake. People dont need to get that defensive when I say something against them.

    2008-05-04 13:23:30 補充:

    First of all, don't call me a kiddo, you don't even know who I am. Second of all, how did I get defensive? I just said UCLA is more selective from my opinion. Just because I go to UCLA doesn't mean I cannot consider UCLA as a better school.

    2008-05-04 13:25:03 補充:

    But I am done with this thing. Who are you to judge when you are not even the thread starter? Whatever tho, DONE and DONE.

    如果能進華盛頓大學,何必去讀社區大學。 華大在美國商學院大學部排行榜上,是排在前三十名內的大學,想進去還不是那麼容易的。

    不過你若是住在加州,選離家近的大學,會方便許多,值得考慮。
