    Pros

    UCLA campus is beautiful. There are good facilities for exercise and opportunities for extracurricular activities. The workload combined with courses is reasonable for most graduate students.

    Cons

    You are on your own with research. Professors are too busy and outdated to help you. They are generally spending time on fancy presentations instead of original research. Most of them are not open to new ideas either. If you want to get a sense of how they are, just imagine that I know many Full Professors at UCLA who does not know how to check their email. Yeah... It's unbelievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professors need to be controlled. Most of them are not working after they get their tenure.

    Doesn't Recommend
