UCSB is the best school in the US, not sure how you can argue. Don't party too much and make something of yourself. Find something you're passionate about and fit partying around school, not as the main attraction. Make sure that you live with people that are mature enough to handle college, and go to Chilla Vista and floatopia! The campus is stunning, the student population is driven and brilliant, and its on the beach what's not to love? Plus, IV is the ideal college town. Theres a place for anyone at UCSB.
