Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I can say is that I have never made a better decision. Here, I met some of the best people in my life, including peers whom I now call my best friends and professors whom I now call my life's mentors. UCSD is an influential institution in both academic research and my personal life.
I honestly love this school. Academically, it is clearly one of the best UCs, as well as one of the best in the world. Many complain about the large class sizes; but honestly, that is found everywhere, even at liberal arts universities.

Advice for students:
I personally enjoy the college system, as I have really bonded with my Revelle family. And while the social scene may not be equivalent to UCSB, it was very suitable for me. I like to have fun, but I definitely put academics first.
