    Find out which one has the Greek Theater, L.A. or Berkeley. Then go there. Bands like the Greek Theater.

    I thought a "head shot" involved 1.5 fluid ounces of alcohol and a hooker's skull.

    Sorry, doood, it's just the truth. I had a 4.6 GPA and a 2200 SAT and was rejected from UCLA.
    When did they change the SAT?

    1600 was a perfect score when I come from. Damn kids and their different standardized tests.

    I think they changed them the year after I took it. So '05? Ours were out of 1600 but the SAT 2 was out of 2400.

    I have good memories of certain classes, some people, the radio station, and walking around campus, but I have many horror stories from UCLA. But, YMMV, really.

    To actually answer the question you posed, San Francisco's local scene isn't all that impressive in my opinion. The best local bands like the Oh Sees, Girls, Fresh & Onlys, Brilliant Colors, Grass Widow all seem to be identifying more with Brooklyn right now. I don't know much about LAs music scene, but it seems like there is always something happening there every night.

    However, don't choose a school based on bands.

    Like everyone said, choosing a school because of the music scene that surrounds it is pretty silly, but for my two cents you sound like you obviously fit in more at Berkeley and you already know this. Coincidentally, on top of all that, you're taste in music fits in much more with San Francisco's.

    Also, I'm getting really tired of the Entrance Band.

    You're being serious? I don't think you will have trouble finding people to have a good time with. Have you actually researched the schools or the cities? You need to consider quitting all your blazing for a day or two while you figure this out, boss.

    Hey, when I went to school the highest GPA was 4.0. Now you can get, what, up to a 5.0?

    You can't actually get a 5.0 because that would require all AP classes each year. No school offers that many AP classes for freshman/sophomores.

    FOr what it's worth, I loved my experience at UCLA. I got to plan concerts, I met some great people, and LA has a great music scene. My classes were good, but in retrospect I would have probably enjoyed smaller classes. That's not a big concern between the two schools though, because Berkeley classes are just as big.

    More proof that marks don't mean shit. You shared one of your opinions during the interview, didn't you? Admit it.

    They changed like over a decade ago, John, to soften the lower end of the curve. To make up for it they raised the point total.

    If you're into indie music then it's often a wash, but if you're into underground EDM at all then LA blows.
