My review

The Good:

The best thing about this school is the majors. There are a wide variety of majors that just about everyone will be interested in. this includes majors in popular fields as well like biological sciences and english literature.

The Bad:

In my opinion, there isn't anything bad about this school. but, playing the devil's advocate, I will say that this school is definitely not for people who love the big, bustling city life.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I absoluely fell in love with this school. Originally, I had my heart set on going to UC Davis so I was really focused on that school. I had also applied to UC Merced and other schools but I intended to go to Davis. But then I got the news of rejection from Davis. In disparity I looked at the UC Merced website and all that it had to offer. It was love at first sight (again!).
