"that there are morning interviews! by reading this website ahead of time, i planned for an afternoon interview. however, i got there at 10:45, interviewed at 11, had tour at 12 and was ready to leave. if you happen to have an afternoon interview, take some time to walk around or find a nice bench on campus to read. it's a gorgeous campus. you will get a voucher for lunch worth $5. There are at least 2 bus lines that can get you to UCLA--lines 2 and 3 of the Big Blue beats looking for parking and buses come regularly (15-20 min)" Report Response
