    Engineering is a very difficult major to get into compared to other majors offered. Make sure your application is unique, last year around 80,000 people applied and there are under 9,000 freshman so its competitive. If you're accepted its a great school. Research dorms and clubs before moving in, theres so many its hard to keep up with all the options in the first week when school starts. Also, definitely a good idea to use to find your own roommate option when applying for housing. Random roommate selections are hit-or-miss. read full review

    UCSB is far better than I'd ever anticipated. I'd originally been super set on going to UCI but my experience here has shown me that I made the right decision in choosing to come here. The lagoon is beautiful, as well as the beach (both of which are within minutes away from the dorms), and the food at IV isn't bad (boba!!!!). Most people here are very friendly and willing to help a fellow classmate, and club activities are super fun to participate in. You won't regret going here. read full review
