"The staff at admissions were really friendly and students kept on dropping in to chat with them. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I spent about 4hours doing nothing in between the tour and my interview. The student led tour sucked, I was not impressed by the facilities or their crappy study rooms. We got a meal card for less than the cheapest meal at the cafe where we ate, so I had to dish out my own money for lunch. The day was unorganized and the students weren't too enthousiastic. I sat in a lecture, nothing impressed me, it just felt like another day in undergrad. The students didn't approach us even though we were obviously interviewing (dark suits) and the professor was kind of boring. My interviewer was uninterested and showed no signs of emotion or interest in me. Taking notes while I spoke, she rarely made eye contact. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The time spent waiting for the interviewer. I should have brought my books to study for the 4 hrs that I spent staring at the wall in the cafeteria or sleeping along with the med students in lecure." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It sucked. Very unorganized and students didn't seem very happy. I also didn't like my interviewer and I felt like she wasn't really interested in me as an applicant. I don't know what the big deal about UCLA is and it would have been nice to tour the hospital or at least meet the Dean of Admissions. " Report Response
