What impressed you positively?

"Students were nice, happy, and outgoing. Although the old hospital is a dump, their new facility (designed by I.M, Pei) is amazingly beautiful, as are the vast range of new research buildings. Also, UCLA has a great location and the weather is unbeatable. Also, proximity of the medical school and hospital to the undergraduate campus is a big plus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This was by far the most disorganized of all the interviews I have done. UCLA is an awesome school, but the admissions staff needs to get its act together. You should expect to be there half of the day: there is a short tour, lunch, and then interviews. I had only ONE interview, while some others in my group had two. This sucks, because I have only one voice to represent me, and my interview did not go great." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That you might only have one interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UCLA is an amazing school and its hospitals are among the very best. The admissions staff, however, was not too kind nor was the interview day organized. My negative review is not a reflection of the school, but rather of how the admissions office handles interviews." Report Response
