I should not have been so trusting ofQuite BrightNursing
I should not have been so trusting of "colleagues"; I should have learned at least two other languages; I should have taken more advantage of offers for advancement, jobs, recommendatons for getting into "other high profile universities at the graduate level". Should have looked to promoting my self rather than focusing on obtaining high quality work experiences. Should have gone to other countries to work.

UCLA is a great place- BEAUTIFUL campus.AveragePreMed and Medical
UCLA is a great place- BEAUTIFUL campus. The whole Westwood area is gorgeous. Aesthetically, i give it an A. People are friendly and beautiful [read: many pretty girls]- perhaps because they're so approachable and laid-back. I could see why so many people apply here and want to come here. I am a girl and I admit some girls here are really hot. Resources here are also great. I love going to the Powell library and sleeping on their comfy couches while studying.

However, I really feel like a number here. It's true. The whole faculty-student relationship is really impersonal. No one will spoon feed you anything here. It's a get-up-and-find-it-yourself environment, which is probably good training for you in the long run out in society. It's tough to get good grades here, esp if you're in the science-y departments-- all the pre-med folks are in there-and obviously, they're all pretty smart and motivated. But UCLA has one of the best medical/science programs so I guess it's not a surprise [our hospital ranks number 3 in US]. I think the difference between Berkeley and UCLA is that students at Berkeley have good studying habits. Students here tend to procrastinate a lot. That's not to say that people here are dumb though. They're smart, but have social lifes as well. Bottom line: it's a well-rounded university in many aspects from sports to academics with well-rounded students.
