UC Berkeley or UC Santa Barbara best for this career
I am an uncommitted undergraduate, torn between these two schools. Would a more prestigious/rigorous education in science at Berkeley help me transfer to John Hopkins or a similar good program for their Scientific/Medical Illustration courses? Or would I just be doing extra work? Both of their art programs seem okay, although I did not have this career in mind when I applied. I am majoring in Biology for each school (Genetics, Genomics and Development for Berkeley; not sure if I should change it) and want to minor in art. I'm not dead set on what I want to be in the future, but my plans have always involved either science OR art and this path seems like the perfect best of both worlds. My friends keep telling me that this job won't be needed in the future, it's not in demand, and is just a dead end, but I can't think of any other career that encompasses my interests so fully. I want to be hopeful!
