Most Helpful Review for University of California-Los Angeles

At UCLA, each academic term, or quarter, lasts for only ten weeks. With that said, you'll definitely learn what you're made of when attending this school. Each quarter will pass by very quickly, so you'll be forced to learn how to juggle classwork with extracurricular activities. Furthermore, you'll be brought into a special community of talented people and will learn how to be humble because you'll be surrounded by students that are just as intelligent and hard-working as you are. I definitely learned to be more modest in my first year, and I'm grateful...

    It is extremely competitive and hard. I never seen so many students that were as smart as me and so many others that are smarter than me. But, even with this competitive atmosphere there is this sense of lifelines.

    There is so much to do and learn at UCLA. You learn quickly that you can't do everything on your own, you learn how to find your own resources, and you learn that there are countless ways to do the same thing. As a student, you definitely get the opportunity to strive in who you are as a person and contribute to other student's lives.

    UCLA is a beautiful campus (that serves good food) providing many opportunities to explore your intellectual and extracurricular passions and interests through its many helpful staff and resources. While here, you are bound to encounter a professor whose research intrigues you and fosters an intellectual pursuit of that topic. Most importantly, the professors are not only talented and intelligent, but kind, approachable, and interested in their studentsâ?? learning.

    An amazing school with great academics, people, and environment. Not only will it give you the challenge you've been searching for, but the tools to take it on. Not only are academics a huge part in the school, but hundreds of clubs and sports are available at a moments notice.
