    It depends on what you are going here for. College is very expensive so if you don't think it's a good idea to not go then don't, try something else. Going here could be worth it if you succeed in school and are able to get a good job afterwords that pays you well. But, to me college is risky too. You have to gamble wisely because not all things may go your way.

    The number one factor in my decision for college was the cost. Between all the colleges I applied to UCI was the one that gave me the most funding and provided me with the most grants to pay off my tuition along with my housing costs. In my opinion if you are a minority student chances are you might get more financial aid at UCI.
