    I've been offered acceptance into UCLA and LLU. However, LLU is offering me a renewable 5000 dollars a year scholarship, so 20K total. I don't know the financial package UCLA will give me because I haven't turned in my financial aid yet. However, I'm still leaning heavily to declining Loma Linda and attending UCLA. Any opinions?

    isnt UCLA cheaper overall? so if LLU give you 5,000 a year, 160-20=140 and ucla is still cheaper at 100,000

    I believe UCLA is cheaper overall but if money is not your biggest concern...then it comes down to do you want to specialize or not? I hear LLU is very strong clinical...and we all know UCLA is known for their high specialty rates. That and the location, LA vs Loma linda. Plus haven't you seen? all the cool kids go to UCLA :D.

    Go where the cool kids go.

    Go where it's cheaper.

    Go where it's "easier" to specialize.

    Go where the breasts are the biggest.

    Go where you'll be happy.

    ...yep. That sums it up. All signs point to la ciudad de Los Angeles.

    Go to LLU if you don't mind going to chapels. I would actually be the rev out there if i even applied there. Oh s..t, they are adventists, they don't believe in rev like me, but their trained pastors.

    Go to LLU, and God will bless your soul.
    hey UCLA folks, Peace be with you. I love you all. I have a girl out there.

    I think all inclusive (tuition, room, board, dental kit, miscellaneous expenses) UCLA is about $50K per year, so $200K total depending on how much you spend. Tuition is about $25K per year.

    Tough choice but I would definitely choose UCLA over LLU. So don't stress and go where the cool kids go

    I would chose UCLA over LLU even if they offered me full tuition.

    I liked undergrad at UCLA so much that I am going back to UCLA for 4 more years. 1) Beach 2) Westwood 3) Basketball and Football 4) all the cool kids go to UCLA 5) cheaper 6) its just the right choice to make

    ...that was from an unbiased completely objective standpoint of course

    lol...no joke...Loma Linda even rejects folks like you. You see....those cheap bast.rds don't know what they are looking for. Oh no....i think they need a Rev like me to bless the girls' souls down there.

    Actually Loma Linda has a good looking place, but this is no way a factor to consider to go there.
