What are your general comments?

"School is in the UCLA hospital. Right in Westwood. Students seem bright and happy. Only 10 hours of lecture a week, the rest is small groups, PBL, etc. Had two interviews, one faculty, one student. Both were very nice. I was the only interviewee that day. The tour was very short, more pointing to buildings than actually visiting them. UCLA has a visitation day for accepted students, and the tour guide believed (and I agree), that interviewing students care much more about the whole presentation of the school when they’re accepted."
