UBC = University of a Billion Chinese
There's a website someplace with dozens more wacky names....
11-20 at weblink above.

Berkeley and UCLA used to be the top picks for Asians until the Asian quota wars of the 80s, then the ones who didn't get in used Irvine as their fall-back. The irony is that the "diversity" policy ended up creating continental America's just about only predominantly or nearly-so Asian college. A decent school though. U Washington is also way up there. UCI = university of chinese immigrants :) University of British Columbia is big too.
