Most Helpful Review for University of California at Berkeley

Berkeley is a great school chock full of award-winning, book-publishing, enthusiastic professors who really know their stuff. If you take classes you're really interested in, you'll learn more. Don't forget about office hours, tutoring sessions, and study groups. Besides the required curriculum, there are a whole lot of opportunities to expand your view of the world - theater, symposia, films, lectures, and of course the occasional crazy person giving a speech on Sproul.

    It is a diamond out of the rough, there are negative about it. But it is one of the greatest minds put together in a vicinity of one university . Academically it is the best public universities in the world.

    It is an amazing university. There is always something to do and you never get bored. It is true it is very challenging and intimidating, but everyone is friendly and you soon find people who support you and who you can rely on.

    Cal is a really incredible place and I think I have learned so much just in my first semester. That being said, it is definitely a place where you have to work very hard virtually all the time, at least that's been my experience in a hard science anyway. The culture is really fun and it's never hard to find something fun to do; additionally, I think there are a lot of people that are kinda superficial about different things going on and I would advise students to just be you!

    There are thousands of opportunities to connect with great students, professors, and other faculty. The student body is very diverse and have largely been accepted into this university due to their merit and qualities. UC Berkeley has very passionate organizations and instructors that stand for issues concerning people of color, feminism, tuition rates, local politics, and more; ultimately, no voice is ever outshone.

    A great place filled with a diverse class of students. A school that is academically challenging but equally enjoyable. A new home away from home where people are there to help you.

    An academic superstar among the public school system. Perhaps one of the weirdest campuses one might ever attend. Wide course selections are readily available!
