University of California - San Diego Graduate Reviews

11 reviews
Going to UCSD for Master's in Electrical Engineering - the school is too big and doesn't care about you. I have been getting above-average grades, so let me make clear that my review is not due to my academic standing. Aside from two professors I had, I am so genuinely disappointed with the school's disposition I would never recommend someone attend who interested in learning.

We charged you over $1000 extra? - "We don't care"
Classes and material taught so poorly we have to curve all the grades? - "We don't care"
Professors hold 100+ student classes where the professor rants about his personal life or doesn't show up? - "We don't care"
Makeup classes held outside of regular hours? - "We don't care"
TA's give wrong information before a test or homework? - "We don't care"
Registration unclear, and emails with conflicting information? - "We don't care"
No parking available even though parking passes are hundreds of dollars a year? - "We don't care"

I got my BA in Urban Studies and Planning in 2008, and now I have just earned my Project Management Certification from the Extension school. Both experiences were amazing and transformative!
The academics at the university are strong. Well-known, nationally recognized programs and the programs are successful in recruiting highly regarded professors/researchers. This is a good place for your academic training.
