What impressed you positively?

"UCLA is gorgeous. The students are really happy and lax. Their curriculum has to be the best out of all the med schools (only 2 hours of lecture time, WOW). Students study quite a bit (as with any school), but they sure have a lot of fun too. Very culturally diverse place too, which is particular enticing to me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview date isn't very informative. Most other schools usually have a talk about financial aid, student housing, etc... the day just consisted of a tour, lunch, and the interview. I just wanted a little more info about UCLA, seeing as how excited I am about the place to begin with." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I was the only student being interviewed for the day. I had three tour guides for one of me, which was a bit awkward for me at first, but then a really great experience because I could ask any question I wanted to. I was the center of attention, and that's always fun, isn't it?! :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Wow, my interviewer was amazing. She was so friendly and so sweet, didn't ask a single question that made me feel uncomfortable. It was a conversation, and we talked about everything from her own childhood to what I should do to get as much info as possible before making a residency decision. I learned a lot from my interviewer, which is really awesome. You go into an interview expecting to be grilled (I saw a lot of previous posts about the abortion question, and found out during my tour that it is a very popular question to be asked)... but it was the exact opposite. I'm so excited about UCLA!!" Report Response
