thewholeenchilada Posted March 9, 2017 Share Posted March 9, 2017 As most people here, I have a difficult decision coming up. I have two school choices that are polar opposites (UC Irvine UMiami). I love both schools for completely different reasons. In terms of research and science Irvine is my top place (they also keep offering me more and more money to go there). The con here is there is close to 0 people of color in the community, student body, or faculty pool. Its a very suburban area which I am not used to. I am coming from NYC, the biggest melting pot, and this is going to be a huge and difficult culture shock for me. On the other hand, UMiami is also a great place in terms of diversity and environment and its not to far from home. The con though is they only offer 28.5 k to live without any subsidized housing. IDK what I am going to do and would appreciate some advice or someone to commiserate with. Would also appreciate any advice or insight on living in either city?
