I've only spent two years at UCLA, so my review only encapsulates so much of the overall experience most other students who spent four years at the school would have. My experience was great in regards to academic opportunities and campus vibes. If there was anything off-putting at all about my experience, it's that the UCLA student body is much more clique-y than I had anticipated or hoped it would be. UCLA is lauded for its diverse student body, yet ironically the students seem to segregate themselves by race, major, socio-economic standing, frat/sorority affiliation, you name it. It's great to see faces of so many colors at the school, but it's discouraging to see them gathered in huge blobs rather than mixed. Needless to say, I enjoyed my time at UCLA enough to apply there for graduate school. Extremely happy to say that I will be going back for another two years!
Review University of California - Los Angeles
While choosing to attend UCLA has been my best decision in life, like all decisions, it comes with its ups and downs. You will meet the greatest peers here, encounter several different exciting opportunities, and listen to some of the greatest professors lecture passionately about interesting content. However, the academics here is not to take lightly. You have to work hard in order to succeed! You will feel stressed and overwhelmed at the difficulty of the courses here, but unless you really take the time and make the effort to seek supporting services, you will stress constantly.
A great school for meeting people and joining clubs! Sure, the classes are challenging and require you to be on your A-game most of the time, but UCLA has a variety of different events going on that you can attend and not be bored. Most professors and TAs are the best instructors you'll ever meet, but there are some that are not that good and grade you badly on nonsensical things. It really depends on the classes you need to take. When it comes to looking for resources, it is important to look through UCLA's website first and pinpoint a location before you walk aimlessly around. If you cannot find anything there, then walk and ask around. Chances are that people will know where you can find a certain place. Either way, life at UCLA is hectic and sometimes overwhelming. But there are different activities going on each day that can help distract you.
