The student body is very competitive. Sometimes it can be hard to make friends because everyone is trying to outperform each other. I transferred here from a small liberal arts college thinking that having a UCLA education would be better for my future career plans. Boy was I wrong. At my first college the student body wanted to work together and form a community. People would study their butts off because they were very passionate about the subjects in which they were studying. At UCLA people also study their butts off but only because they want to have better grades than all their classmates. It's hard to find someone who loves what they're studying. There's a big emphasis on image here. Classes are interesting but nowhere near as good as I thought they would be. I have a feeling that most of the people who come to UCLA are attracted to the name and reputation and don't care too much about the actual learning, just about getting high marks to impress people. It's not a total loss though. There are a lot of good classes and a wide range of majors. I'm currently taking a year off due to money issues but will return to finish my BA. Just think long and hard about coming here if you're looking into it.
