I am getting very close to depositing to UCLA and had one quick question. I was wondering if research is a mandatory requirement for graduation or anything like that at UCLA. I did do some research in undergrad but it wasn't the best experience I had and I just wanted to know whether I should prepare myself to do more research in DS. Thank you in advance & Happy Holidays!

Research is not mandatory. I did research in undergrad too and learned that it wasn't for me and was upfront about it during the interview. Even if you wanted to specialize, you may even be able to avoid it if you are strong in other areas like rank, service, or leadership. However, you will be reading and analyzing research papers to help you make the best decisions and forced to do EBD.
