Being in LA gives UCLA a great advantage when it comes to seeking employment. The alumni network is extremely strong and can be found all over the world. Connectivity to this network too is great.

The courses offered, especially if you're considering Biology, are great. Every professor/faculty member knows his job and does it well. Every class is unique and makes you work with it. The quarterly system keeps us on our toes. There is just so much to do all the time, opportunities are endless.
