    drew - a medical college that does its first 2 years at ucla with the other ucla students, however when it comes to your 3/4 years you do your rotations at king/drew. their class consists of 24 students who are dedicated to serving the underpriviledged communities that exist.

    quick question: do you have to apply separately for ucla-ucr program (don't think there was such an option when i applied). if not, when M3 comes, who decides you to stay at westwood and to go to ucr?

    yea, the ucr programs is a joint (now 8 year, used to be 7 years) bacc/md program (highly selective, people are kicked out as you go up each year in undergrad). here is some more info:

    all three have separate apps and separate adcoms (well ucr is N/A for you bcz you would go to that from high school):

    ucla-westwood: all 4 years at ucla, 121 spots.
    ucla-drew: first 2 years at ucla, second 2 years at king/drew, 24 spots.
    ucla-ucriv: 3 or 4 years of ucr for bacc, md: first 2 years at uc riverside, second 2 years at ucla. 24 spots.

    hope that helps.
