    Two words to describe UCLA: GREAT SCHOOL.

    My interview experience at UCLA definitely showed me that it has to be one of the richest (if not THE richest) public medical schools in the country. The resources are amazing and they're in the process of building a world-class medical center, as if the one they have right now isn't awesome enough.

    The student body is laid back (west coast attitude!) and they know how to have fun on the weekends...they take lots of roadtrips! Westwood is a fabulous, affluent area, so crime really isn't a problem...although living is ridiculously expensive. UCLA has a great P/F grading system and a pretty good MD/MBA program, for those interested. Although I'd rank Stanford and Michigan higher (because of specifics about each school particular to my interests), you can't go wrong by choosing UCLA.

    AATCHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN '04 (for now)

    I agree 99% with the previous statement. Except that the current facilities are an arquitectural nightmare from the 60's. The Medical School portion of the latest and greatest New Med Center is expected around 2006.
    Otherwise, A+
