The community service and international opportunities are endless. Also, the other applicants were pleasantly friendly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The organization of the whole day for the applicants was kind of all over the place... also, the 1st yrs that were suppose to give the tour never showed up so there was no tour. The only student I got to talk to that day was my interviewer... fortunately I'm familiar with UCLA already, but for those who aren't this would be a big turn-off." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was great to come into both my interviews and see that they both were very interested to know more about ME! Between both my faculty and student interviewer we covered almost everything in my application; mt road to medical school. It was great... a very fulfilling interview experience. Like I said before, the admissions office could have gone a little more out of their way , and some sort of tour would have been nice... but overall, I loved UCLA!!!" Report Response
