Great for LA jobs

5.0 of 5 stars

May 2017 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Location is great. Students are kind and helpful. Professors are ready to work with you if you're not grasping a concept.

Downers

Nothing really. I guess I wish the cost of living was lower.

Comments

This is obvious, but do well on the LSAT! It's your best bet to get in.

UCLA is a very prestigious school

5.0 of 5 stars

February 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

UCLA is a very prestigious school with a diverse student body, excellent job recruiting, decent part scene, and beautiful LA campus, but it is seriously overcrowded, the administration bureaucracy is absolutely terrible, and the competition in all reasonably hard majors is cutthroat. There are almost always three ppl to each tiny dorm room and realistically the average student will have almost all huge classes (the number of small classes they advertise is misleading because you need tons of small classes to balance out one large class from the student perspective -the smallest class I've had in three years was a 60 person philosophy GE). Some professors try to help but the sheer quantity of students they have makes it hard, and many classes (especially math, science, econ) are specifically designed to weed students out of worthwhile majors and often have test averages below 50%. Class enrollment is a nightmare -you will likely only be able to get 2/4 classes you need each quarter.

Downers

This school does have its negatives, as most schools do. But overall, most people who do get in and decide to go here make the best of it. Yes it is very competitive, but I personally do not see that as a bad thing. It makes us all better. Some here do make it seem grades are everything but there is definitely a diversity of students who don't just spend all day and night studying to get all As. When they say there are all kinds of people here, there really are. No matter what your personal beliefs are, there is a group for you and people who share those beliefs. This school is preparing us for the real world where no one holds your hand and takes you through life.

Comments

The campus itself is amazing and the classes are very interesting taught by extremely smart professors.

Collaborative environment - competition can be heavy, especially in the FT program (vs. FEMBA or EMBA), but the school works to foster collaboration as well. Learning to be part of a team and contribute where you add the most value is extremely useful and more challenging than I expected. They have a lot of extremely talented professors and faculty - often professors that have and could teach at with higher prestige, but I'm guessing they wanted to live in LA!
They have been extremely helpful in accommodating me while I was dealing with some health issues.

Downers

No "tracks" for the FEMBA program; I also feel like there is a lot of talk about what to do to get a career and the support provided is somewhat inconsistent. I think that the FEMBA program could improve in a few ways and that the school does a disservice to students by allowing the antipathy between the two groups to exist.
FEMBA Career services could use some help - they could definitely provide better/more active support.
I think that some of their rhetoric ends there. Generally, the bureaucratic side is not pretty.

Comments

Make sure you want to get an MBA. If you do, then this is an excellent school to pursue it at.

School location and quality of professors is excellent. Can't beat living in LA.

Downers

Liberal student body. There have been some seriously silly student body movements in the past.

Comments

It is not so cutthroat like other top schools. Relaxed atmosphere - bring your sandals.

weather; resources to meet experts in every subject; recruiting opportunities by consulting firms. Housing is much better than USC.

High out-of-state tuition. Not enough research opportunity for master's student.

Worth coming, especially for the engineering, management, health-related majors.
