Don't act smart, Pam.  Obviously you can't be.

I would never pick LA over Berkley, that's just dumb. UCLA is so freaking over-rated and overly selective.



*BTW, i'm ultra bitter because I got rejected for Undergrad*

Brings back horrible memories... as  USC says...FUCLA

Can anyone answer my question?

Why UCLA over Boalt, if you could pick?

Simple preference of Los Angeles over Berkeley. This is why I picked UCLA over Berkeley for undergrad.
I'd probably lean towards Berkeley for LS because I've already spent four years at UCLA and because it has better career options, but to act like it is "unfathomable" is to be a rankings whore and not realize people have other priorities.

Ditto. Exactly.

I'd be careful with this talk..there are several Bruins here that are prepared to pounce.  :D

I'm not trying to pull off anything.  I wouldn't have asked the question just to be annoying.  Someone earlier in the thread mentioned UCLA over Boalt, and I wanted to know why.

Oooh!  I have one:  I would pick UCLA over Berkeley because my fiance got a job as a cardiothoracic radiologist at UCLA med center.  Value your unfettered early twenties, son.  Live it up, because they will turn into late twenties with responsibility very soon.

Eh.  I wish I could be more carpe diem, but let's not turn this thread into something it's not meant to be.

 ???  You are the one who asked why.  I told you one reason.  I agree though, let's get back on topic.

How are you balancing the time?  It sounds rather tough to deal with your respective schedules, much less both of them.

Well, I'm not there yet.  But it shouldn't be an issue.  Radiology is the life.  She'll be 8-5 with only about two calls per month.  Her residency, though, was a different story.

Like many have said, TFM, this is a thread about the UCLA waitlist. Start a new thread if you want to consistently talk about something else.

I also don't understand why legitimate discussions concerning Affirmative Action are automatically dismissed as flames or as being silly.

We have a forum for this.

Knock yourself out.

TheFlyingMachine - as many posters here have correctly noted, the purpose of this thread is to discuss the UCLA Waitlist.  If you wish to debate the merits of Affirmative Action, please relegate such discussion to the Affirmative Action Thread, which is dedicated to that purpose. 

To that end, all previous posts in this thread germane to the topic of Affirmative Action may be found here:

Thanks.
