University of San Diego Reviews
Great school, small class sizes, and engaged professors who are willing to work with you and answer your questions. The campus is beautiful, and if you have the chance to stay in the dorms, do so! I especially recommend Maher Hall for the freshmen and for the upperclassmen, the Manchester Apartments.
This was a fantastic experience and broadened my perspective with the diverse community that attends. I came here for grad school after going to a top UC school for undergrad, and I feel that the experience here was much more inviting than my undergrad experience. The professors genuinely care about the success of the students and will go out of there way to help. I think the very diverse student body greatly adds to the experience, and I really enjoyed getting to know so many different people from around the world. The Kroc Institute always had great events going on, and I found it very easy to make friends and meet new people. Very glad I made the decision to come here!
USD is a wonderful school! The professors are outstanding. The Campus is gorgeous. The people are friendly. What more can you ask for? The only downside is that it is quite expensive. If you do not come from a wealthy background, you will require financial assistance.
