What are your general comments?

"Great experience. The students impressed me the most. The majority of them I talked to all got into great schools and had no regrets of their decision to attend UCLA. They love it there and they love how the students feel like part of a family as well as how great the faculty treats them and listens to them. No one hid the fact that the curriculum is very demanding, but they all said that time management is the key. From 4th year students to 1st year students we talked to, they stressed how great the faculty treats them and values their opinions. They also mentioned the clinical portion has improved each year, and there is more than enough patients, especially the right patients, to get a great clinical background and be prepared for the boards. Their board scores are high, lots of opportunity to specialize, and great didactics." Report Response
