Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors of the UCLA civil engineering program are true experts in their field, and they are always very available to talk to students outside of the classroom. The area of Westwood is beautiful and safe, and you cannot beat the weather. Having said that, the cost of living down here is a bit expensive; you can consider yourself lucky if you find a shared room for less than 650 a month. Parking is usually a problem, unless you get a pass which can go for a 100 a month. All things considered, I am lucky to come this school and be in this program. Go Bruins!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel very fortunate to have chosen UCLA for my Masters in Social Welfare. It is a generalist degree, but the options to focus are available.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

PROS: What I like most here is the nice study atmosphere around, everyone pushes hard and average grading is quite high. Well, this can be described as competitive atmosphere too. And the academic resources are excellent - quite many labs, and they can literally get you every paper you wanna view, as long as it exists on the earth. CONS: Career resourses introduced by college focus more on programming/ laws/ education/ etc. Off-the-rack opportunities for civil engineering are rare. Plus, as a civil engineering student, job hunting can be much harder than in other fields if LA is where you wanna work.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

UCLA Anderson provides an outstanding value in return for the two-year investment of the full-time program. It enabled me to pursue a position beyond my expectations and provided the frameworks and support system to reach that goal. Student life and opportunities within the program were excellent as well, and I will leave knowing I attended what I believe to be the strongest program in all of Southern California, if not the West Coast.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Being just one year, the master's program is the most efficient use of your time and money. The faculty are very knowledgeable in their fields and cares about the quality of education offered to their students. There is also the chance to engage in research.
