University of California - Berkeley Reviews, Bachelor's in Economics
When attending UC Berkeley, I didn't realize the caliber of the school's reputation or the academics. After I left Berkeley, it was evident the impact that being a Berkeley student has, especially while studying abroad. Besides the reputation, as a research and academic focused institution, the professors at Berkeley are all knowledgeable and passionate. There are many aspects of Berkeley that I did not enjoy difficulty in getting classes that I wanted, lack of support by school administration as a whole being a public school, difficulty in finding jobs/internships through alumni or school connections, competitiveness , overall, it was a great experience and a fantastic school.
UC Berkeley is a very unique university. Overall, I had a great experience for a top-notch college, where I had the opportunity to learn from brilliant industry expert professors, meet and make friends with individuals of all walks of life, and get to know myself better. It is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of such as large school, coupled with the extremely difficult curriculum, but pushing through this definitely made me a stronger person and taught me how to think differently and consider the bigger picture. There are classes for everyone; if there is something you want to learn about, Berkeley will have it.
Professional school with many opportunities to learn and network. Prepares students for a career
UC Berkeley is a top class college in academics. Great name and well recognized at an international level. The big brand name recognition is worth the public school tuition if you are from california. My degree in Economics pushed me to a whole new level of performance due to the extreme competition. Very bright classmates, many foreign students, big challenge. The reward at the end of it is definitely worthwhile.
I think UC Berkeley is such a great school to go. Not only they offer the best quality education from its faculties, but also the whole experiences to be one of fellow Golden Bears. Yes, the school is somehow competitive, but it is a healthy one I would say. It drove me to be a better person and a more capable one. Love the environment and everything about Cal! Go BEARS!
