I’m In Love With a Campus

Going in to the application process, there are 2 schools that I absolutely have my heart set on. UC Irvine and University of Washington, or UW. I just wanted to make it clear that I’m not talking about the University of Wisconsin, although I have no problem with that school.
Irvine is in an area that I’m completely comfortable with, and love. I’ve spent many a vacation in Southern California, and that area would have to be the place I’ve spent the most time in other than my home town. It’s close to plenty of big cities and things to do, but Irvine itself is more suburban. The campus is wonderful, set up around a giant circular park that supposedly has bunnies. They’ve got an awesome mascot, the anteater. Also, I’ve got plenty of family living in the area, so even though I’ll be hours away from home I won’t be completely alone. I’ve also got several cousins that go to or have gone to Irvine.
Finally, I have no idea how I’d decide my major(s) and minor if I went there. They have so many different programs that sound amazing, so many things that I’m interested in. I’m practically drooling over their academics, and the location is ideal for future jobs and internships in the industries I’d be interested in.
