    Pricey, but that can be expected of a UC, just take the experience and go with it, because there will never be anything quite like it. Weighing academics with the events on campus, the clubs/extracurricular, and safety, it is fairly worth what you are paying.

    UCI may be expensive, however I can say that it is a worthwhile investment. You will always feel welcome and wanted on this campus. There is so much to do, and so much more to accomplish. Opprotunity is bustling for students across campus who want that internship, and want that position to study abroad. I donâ??t exaggerate when I say you will get what you but into this school. Thatâ??s why I encourage students to get involved on campus because a good connection can get you far.
