Okay so i know the stereotypes of these schools. SB party school with a bunch of stuck up, well-to-do, overly preppy kids, SC layed back and stoners, and SD just being SD (havent heard too much about it). My main focuses are SB and SC and i really just want to know the pros and cons of the schools, not academically, but the college life/experience. Never been huge on major partying but i love SB's social enviornment. SC seems cool too but way more mellow, not as vibrant (similar to my homewtown). I don't know if the nightlife/social life is much different... And i can't fully tell if SB really is a ton of beachy, too preppy, jock like kids.. if thats the case i may be out of my element. Buttt i can't tell either if SC is too layed back? I've heard that the students at SC are weird and I don't know if thats true or not... i just want to know the pros amd cons of each school! Thanks!
UCSC, UCSB, or UCSD?

SB and SD are both party schools, dunno about SC. but you can't go wrong with SB or SD.
you might have more fun in SD. education will be good for all of them.0
I graduated from UCSB and had a fucking blast there! Yeah there's some stuck up preps there, but the Santa Barbara natives aren't like that!
The students are mostly from the O. C. and that is where the "stuck up prep" reputation comes from.0

I'll make it simple:
Ucsb stereotype: parties and hot people
Ucsb actually: all of the above and a SHIT ton of work, and maybe some overpriced nachos
I go there and I literally party everyday, but you still got a LOT to study, it's not like it's easy0
UCSD... No matter what 'type' of person you are or people you enjoy being around you will find similar people here!! It's a laid back atmosphere with tons of entertain within a ten mile radius!! Culturally diverse and just full of awesome people!! I went to SDSU but spent a lot of time at UCSD!! Overall just a great campus, great location, and a helluva great time!!0
usc, ucla, ucsb, ucsd.
i have fond memories of my parents taking me to santa cruz when i was little.0
