What impressed you negatively?

"when i sat in on a lecture, and the doors to the hall are at the front of the room. so when people come in late, its distracting. that could get annoying as a student. my faculty interviewer kept asking me about my parents for the majority of the time, but i think there are more interesting things in my application that we could have talked about. i didnt get a chance to talk to many students about the school. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that you can randomly be assigned a student interview, like i was. i was not prepared for it, & i missed the tour. also its unclear how they evaluate this if its only for some people." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i truly love ucla, but the interview is not that impressive. they dont really ask any difficult questions. also fyi the personality of some of the classes is not 'study hard, party hard.' maybe more the former. no one i talked to could explain the 'clinical colleges' that ucla has. the second interview stressed me out a bit b/c i wasnt expecting it.
