    Do not go if you do not have a scholarship, especially if you can barely afford it. It is not worth it at all. If you can afford it, or have a great scholarship, you should most definitely attend!

    VERY, VERY expensive but the reason I'm still considering is because I believe I will have the most opportunities in that location and with access to the amazing profs available here.

    Go to the balconies of Maher, Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, or Shiley-Marcos SciTech building at night to see the skyline of San Diego. Stand outside Copley Library at the end of the day to catch the SeaWorld Shamu fireworks show. In the daylight, walk to the west side of campus and you can see the ocean.
