He cares more about Educational Quality than the average student.

Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
Business Economics student 3rd year.

UCLA is a beautiful campus.

  • The majority of students are above average. (Bruin Brand)
  • Attendance for most classes is optional.
  • Personally I believe attending class is a waste of time. (since if I do study on my own, I get more done than the professor), but I am lazy so I dont really study until its finals week.
  • Like what other comments said before, the majority of people here care more about their grades than they do the subject.
  • Grading is done by a curve. i.e.
  • If you do bad, I do well.

  • SIDE NOTE- To the people complaining about UCLA being highly competitive. You dont belong here, you should transfer.
  • Class size for social science classes can reach 300 students, while my business classes are around 80 students.
  • Overall I personally believe the 10k tuition is not bad considering I will be paid more when I graduate.

    UCLA education is not done well, as it is basically like a moviehouse but with a man at the front talking gibberish.

    I do, however, learn a lot more but that is only out of necessity to get an A.

    Overall, if you are moderately smart, and are motivated to study, you should be fine.

    If you had to choose a trait, i say be smart

    Grading pattern

    Smart and Studious = A 20%

    Smart = A to B 20%

    Studious = B to C 50%

    Uhh lol = D-F 10% of UCLA

    The exams are both problem solving to the extreme and moderate memorization and a bit of luck.

    You can work hard all you want but you wont get a 4.0.
