Pros: Fantastic resources and name recognition of a R1 institution like San Diego, with beautiful weather and excellent networking capability between members of the student community and the faculty. Cons: Everything's rather far apart, for someone coming from the East Coast like I am, so my wallet takes a hit from the gas prices, but that's alright for a place like this!

Great program if you have a pre-existing knowledge base on the topics discussed in courses. Not a program meant for teaching topics, more meant for presenting new topics and leaving the interpretation up to you. Lots to do around campus, beautiful city. If you work hard you will be successful, but anything less then 110% will cause struggles in the accelerated learning process.

Pro: Great school, secluded and quite feeling environment yet still close to everything needed by a student to enjoy their years of study Con: Diversity could be better. Having more emphasis on sports would foster a better school spirit.

I have really enjoyed my graduate school life in UC San Diego. I made the right choice to take this school as my graduate study school. For my major, Structural Engineering, UC San Diego provides decent good program. We are provided some courses which other schools do not have, such as cable structures, bridge engineering and slope of retaining walls, etc. These curriculums enhance our competitiveness. I love UC San Diego! I love Structural Engineering.
