I've really enjoyed Law School at UCLA. Being in Los Angeles, you have so many opportunities at internships and summer positions at law firms. I've worked with two prominent entertainment law firms during my time in the program. I've made a good group of friends that I go to the beach, Westwood, etc. I'm very happy with my choice.
Athletics seem to be of far greater importance than academics at this institution. Athletes get away with a lot of things off and on the field/court. I agree with the sentiments of one of the students who submitted a previous response. The academic and scholarly environment are compromised by this focus on athletic success. The students that I teach are not at all motivated and the faculty are too self-absorbed and condescending. This university does not deserve the credit that it has been given in the past for academic success. In my opinion, this school schould have a terrible academic reputation. There are many other public (or private) institutions in California that offer a far better education. I am in the process of transferring out of here.
Some of the worst students I've ever met. They are driven for only personal gain, and they get off by treating other very poorly. Not the place I would recommend unless you are the type that lives for school and school alone.

Very open atmosphere with faculty willing to help even when they aren't on your committee.
Commuter school which can be isolating.

Great experience. Lots of opportunities to do research. Friendly dedicated students, who are constantly discussing future plans…

I had started my PhD at the Colorado School of Mines. However, the graduate school and the on-campus USGS facility was so appalling that I joined forces with the Earth and Space Sciences at UCLA in 1997. Not only was the staff interested in my work, they gave me funding to finish my thesis, and a post-doc as well, in contrast to CSM, where I had nothing but problems. I felt at home at UCLA, sharing ideas and proposing future projects. In the remaining two years I was able to finish my thesis, believing that I made a contribution to the field of space physics. I would have saved much time and resources by applying here in the first place.
