Here’s a bit of what our team member, Kimberly, had to say about her experience when deciding:
"I remember the excitement and absolute fear of committing to UCLA. I felt like I could take on the world but at the same time, felt like the world was going to crush me. Four years later, the experience has been a delight (despite COVID of course). Congrats to all the incoming college students!"
