Hi UCLAStudent!!!UCLAstudent said:docmemi, do you live in Weyburn Terrace? I called UCLA and asked about housing there, and the woman on the phone, Carrol, said she was "pretty sure" that all first-year medical students have a place reserved there. Do you know if this is true? I would like to live at either Weyburn or on Tiverton. Thanks for any advice!
wow, i was at another talk. but thats cool you went.UCLAstudent said:Thanks, docmemi! Do you know if it comes with a parking spot(Weyburn)? I know it's extra money, but is it guaranteed? BTW, I went down to the medical school today to hear a lecture on abortion at lunchtime. I felt like such a teenybopper!
Awesome. I am getting so excited about UCLA. Are there often talks during lunchtime, or was it just coincidence that there were two today? And, are you happy at UCLA? Sorry for all of the questions in such a short time period!docmemi said:wow, i was at another talk. but thats cool you went.
yes, you get a parking spot in the complex and you can use it to park in the hospital or elsewhere on campus after 430pm or anytime on the weekend. you cannot get day parking on campus if you live in weyburn...you can just get weyburn parking. and yes, im pretty sure its extra money.
hard choice between stanford and ucla.
obviously you should look at the curriculum, student life and hapiness, city and community (including expenses), opportunities (volunteer, research, etc). just whereever you would fit in. you should go to the 2nd look days obviously. ask me q's if you have any.
it was pretty good. they did a sample pbl case with us and fed us. i got to meet a lot of people and they are my friends/classmates now. i got to ask questions, find out about opportunities, etc. i would go for sure. they explain the curriculum. when you go there, be sure to ask questions and look around really well. open your eyes. imagine yourself there and if you are going to be happy. ask about the number of hours of class, how hands on clinical years are, etc.CreativeWriter said:thank you for the advice. i agree, they are both great places. did you go to the UCLA second look? how was it like? any other advice, is greatly welcomed!
