Being a pre-medical student is tough, and being a transfer pre-medical student is even tougher because it seems like we have only half as much time to complete everything. That is why we decided to write up this guide to hopefully help you kickstart your pre-medical journey at UCLA right from the get-go.
In this guide, you can learn about our timelines and experiences, how to get those infamously competitive clinical hours at UCLA, and how you can become a research superstar. We will also answer some frequently asked questions and provide you the resources UCLA has for you to succeed as a transfer pre-medical student. Buckle your seatbelt, here we go!
