  • I really want to return as a readmit student and complete my B.S. in Applied Mathematics. I could probably make a difference in the world with this degree. I could also get a Master's degree in Mathematical modeling. I want to keep learning. My parents met at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. I think UC Berkeley is the most significant university in the US given what it stands for. I will update. I am also an MGF writer with some funny stories sprinkled in comparing UCSD to UC Berkeley.
  • Very nice campus , rich in history. The most popular club is the Republican Club ! Don't be fooled by how liberal the city is. Also the birth of free speech on college campus started right here in Berkeley. John 3:16

  • Great campus! I have had multiple advisors who studied at this great institution. I felt like I belonged here even as a visitor checking out the campus. Less pretentious and more welcoming than the Stanford campus. :P
