Question for UCLA undergrads...

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by brhill, Aug 19, 2001.

  1. I was just wondering what y'all did in terms of a pre-med advisor. I went to the career center and they said they didn't have anyone for that specifically (which I think is pretty cheap for such a big school). They said I could speak to a career person who proceeded to show me a bunch of fliers on stuff I already knew. She was nice but wasn't any more in-the-know than myself. What did you guys do? Any advice? Thanks.

    I, too, would like to know whether there is a good pre-med resource on-campus.

    Any tips to be a successfull pre-med at UCLA?

    Thanks!!

    There is no pre-med advisor at UCLA. It really sucks. I would recommend joining a pre-med club or something like that. I think the Pre-professional center might have someone good who you can talk to. Check there.

    i graduated from ucla. my advice is to just do things yourself. network with other pre-meds. ucla is too busy to really take time to help you. it's still a cool place though.

  6. ucla sux they dont give a damn

    they used to have counselors in the pre-professional advising office and they all left (all 2 of them :D)

    because they got bettery paying jobs, why do u think we had the sudden move from murphy to the career center...

    we have no one, nobody cares...that is why I moved to san diego...good luck pple

    studentdoctor.net is my resource. good or bad, i don't know... but it's a hell of a lot better than the non-existant premed office at UCLA.

    UCLA pre-meds, despite the total lack of advisors, are easily some of the most savvy and competitve candidates around.

    Why? Because most take care to find out information for themselves and do a LOT of networking with other pre-meds. I had a difficult time freshman year, but it's changed a lot as I've become more independent and gotten to know more older pre-meds who have gone through the process already.

    UCLA is a great place generally... but not for a pre-med looking for guidance. Ya gotta be a self-starter. :)

    Can't spell $UCk without U$C.

    USC...The best A's money can inflate.


    Of course, come next year, I'd love to be wearing a nice burgandy USC Medicine sweatshirt. Though I'll always sit on the better side of the football field.
