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....

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

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.

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"

我是在考慮UIUC, BU or community college
Univ Washington 16 1 6.25% 0.79%
UCI有TAG(transfering admission guarantee program)

i just got to tell you that
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.

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.
