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.
