Hello, I'm currently a senior in high school deciding between UCSD and UCI to attend in Fall 2010. I applied undeclared to both schools but have a strong interest in urban planning. I'm not sure what subdivision of planning I want to focus on but probably urban design.
I know UCSD as a school is more competitive and ranks higher than UCI, so I'm more inclined to go to UCSD. However, UCI is accredited for urban planning, while UCSD is not. Will this accreditation title make a difference when I apply for graduate school/apply for jobs? Is UCSD's program weaker?
Any advice? Any current students/graduates from those schools?
