I heard that UCB “destroys” aspiring students. For those “destroyed” Berkeley students, who were straight As in high school mostly , Santa Clara Universiry could give them a much better education and they can become better people with more successes in life.
Heard from a manager that some UCB students they interviewed for engineers know “nothing”. Apparently UCB curriculum is outdated and not useful for the workplace. Since majority of the students won’t pursue PhD and academic careers, the value of UCB is questionable.
Also UCB gives bad grades to students and limits their opportunity for professional schools.
A super resource deprived school could make students less generous and appear mean to their future coworkers, which could have a lasting negative effect
Is this UCB specific? Are all the UCs the same in terms of destroying students?
It seems to me that UCB is really good for PhDs and research professors. Its teaching is worse than Santa Clara University. It seems to emphasize research and undergraduate teaching is ignored
