    Genuinely could not be happier with my choice to go to USD. They really care about their students and their success. The only bummer is that there is really NO school spirit... But its super close to the beach and everything in San Diego is awesome. The campus is beautifully maintained and there are a lot of interesting courses to take here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. ...Continue reading

    USD is what you make it . The possibilities are really endless with what to do with your education, and I love the freedom. Class sizes are great, there is a ton of different organizations to get involved in, employment is abundant. Basically if you need help with anything, there is a center for that to help. ...Continue reading

    Most of the teachers are great, but do push super-liberal agenda on you. Most of the students are as interesting as a bowl of farina. Don't get me wrong there are some exceptions but they are exactly that an exception more than the rule. The professors are very helpful and will work with you as long as you put in the effort to apply yourself. ...Continue reading

    Enrolling into this school is perhaps the biggest mistake that I made. The classes are really hard but you don't learn more, just LOADS of unnecessary work. I've taken about 20 classes and I've only had three GOOD teachers, have had 5 or 6 awful ones. What you pay for this school is so excessive and not worth it in the slightest. ...Continue reading

    Love the academics here, beautiful campus, social life is a little reduced here, you have to go off campus for the fun stuff If you are a person of color, you feel out of place because a HUGE majority of the student population consists of very wealthy, white students. Great quality of education with highly qualified professors. Idk if it's worth it though, putting up with the HUGE lack of diversity at USD. If you don't have a car the campus becomes a bit like a prison... ...Continue reading

    Yeah, paying $44,000 a year but you MUST take too much general classes. Too expensive, professors teach less and give more tests (to make his job easier), hard to find good jobs after graduation. Actually you on your own, they don't help you much. I urge you to visit the campus before you pronounce it as your dream school ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 2/5
    More than 80 percent of your classes are about core requirement, which are useless. USD would be the place. The school is beautiful, but is not much more than that. There is a lack of community, the academics are way too hard and the social scene is nonexistent- all parties are shut down before 11. 45 of my closest friends want to transfer, I would not highly recommend. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    This school is so choked up with Liberal Ideas that it helps to produce a cloud of misconception on campus, ultimately resulting in a lack of intellectual exploration as well as causing the suppression of potentially brilliant ideas from being born. Administration won't do anything ethical or make any effort to support you unless they think their reputation may be at stake or you try to get them in the wallet. Landscaping is nice, but students would rather have necessities like air-conditioning, working plumbing, and professors that show up to office hours. ...Continue reading

    Its hard to not be happy at this school. It has quite the pricetag, but if you're lucky (wealthy) enough to go here, you're in for the best professors, the best food, great dorms, a beautiful campus, the greatest sunsets you've seen, and a population that is the perfect size to both see tons of people you don't know AND tons that you DO every day. ...Continue reading

    Just finished my first semester and I absolutely love the school. Small classes, and the teachers all seem very willing to help you out one-on-one.

    It's expansive, great location, common areas need a make over. Lots of clubs for almost everything. Frats and sororities with lots of events. Culture mostly haole. Meet the right people, you'll have a great time. Transferring credits is a bitch though. Wish they'd come up with a booklet that lets you choose which classes you can take from what schools. ...Continue reading

    I attended USD in the early 90s. the location is beautiful on the hill! but you need a car to get almost anywhere. i drove mine down for my second semester of freshman year and i much more easily got to the beach and parties and the grocery store. overall awesome place! the people at usd are so nice and smart and fun, too. unlike anywhere else ...Continue reading

    The immediate area isn't amazing, but it's really easy to get to the beach or downtown where there are lots of things to do. Because of the economic demographics of the student population, most tend to be arrogant and cliquey(do not expect the typical college party scene). but it is a really amazing blessing to go to USD and everyone ends up loving they chose it. Do not come here if you're really going to miss wild sports games and tailgating. For me, this isn't an issue. I'm busy enough as it is. The LLC program makes it easy to get connected your first year. I highly recommend it. The dorms are top notch and so are the classes. Awesome place ...Continue reading

    This school is everything I hoped for. I was hesitant with my choice at first, but I fell in love with the campus and the teachers.

    USD is all about appearances. Though it's beautiful and the professors are amazing, the social life is awful and tuition continues to rise (64k+). The stereotypes are true.

    It's a great school given the smaller student population. Amazing people. Good food. Good academics.

    Thank goodness for Oregel. I postponed Spanish 3 for many semesters because I am so bad at Spanish and I had no idea how I was going to make it through Spanish 3. Oregal is so helpful and definitely the best teacher in the Spanish department. If you are bad at Spanish and are dreading taking Spanish, TAKE HER. She definitely makes this class doable ...Continue reading

    Hardest class I've had. She is not very helpful. She races through lectures and provides examples that are much simpler than what the cases are and what is on the tests. Expect to be racing to finish on tests because everyone always ran out of time. ...Continue reading

    She's okay. I got an A first semester with Khuong and a B+ with her. She somehow gave someone a B+ although by her syllabus and their grades they should have gotten an A- so not sure what happened there. Her third test killed the class and she shoots down questions. Multiple times she said No more questions even when the class was confused ...Continue reading

She is a good teacher and will take into consideration the effort you put in. Just try and you will do well! ...Continue reading

    Gorsky's lecture notes are crystal clear, she makes the subject matter as simple as possible and actually provides you with helpful examples. She's great in office hours and truly wants her students to understand the material. Tests are hard but fair, she takes the problems from the homework. BUT she's a TOUGH grader if you want an A, think again ...Continue reading

    Daley is great in office hours and appreciates extra effort to understand the material. His tests are hard and he's a tough grader, but with work an A is achievable. Reading the textbook beforeafter class and while doing homework helps a lot. He's quirky, funny, and basically a genius. Would take again! ...Continue reading

    Probably the smartest guy I have ever met. He gives very interesting and inspirational lectures that you will remember for a long time. You might not get a great grade but honestly who cares unless you're going to graduate school. Even if you get a C, it's worth it because he's so interesting. ...Continue reading

    Entire class is lecture based on the powerpoints she presents each class. The class is really interesting and she has a really quirky personality so it keeps you awake and engaged. She gives real life examples that will make you remember the material more, and she genuinely cares about her students. Tests are based off the power points. ...Continue reading

If you can take her class, TAKE IT!!! ...Continue reading

    Rida is great as a lecturer, and he is well rounded in what he's talking about. However,the class material is hard and Rida makes it harder by his grading system. For example, there are 4 quizzes and 8% on each, which is harsh because you're required to understand most of the material when taking one quiz. Other than that, Rida is welling to help u ...Continue reading
