UCSD is not that great if you ask me. People say that it is difficult to get into, and it takes a rather intelligent student in order to be accepted…well I disagree. I think there are many outstanding students at UCSD and their performance carries the rest. I encounter many students daily that seem to have no clue what common sense is. The quarter system is crap and just a capitalistic money-making scheme. Even the most unbiased and intelligent students I have spoken to agree that this method of education is not an efficient way to learn. Obviously if one of the best institutions of higher education (UC Berkeley) abolished the quarter system in the 1980s because of mass student dissatisfaction then I believe my argument holds some legitimacy.
